Greece Travel: Travelers Reviews
I have said it before and I will say it again....the Adams is not for everybody.
But the majority of the people who stay there like it and the location can't be beat. No it is not Hilton quality
or even Holiday Inn. Yeah the building is a little old and tough to keep spotless. But every year Kosta upgrades
the hotel a little more and now the entire hotel has been rennovated. What can I say? I stay here.
I like it. In fact if he would rent me the large room on the third floor I would stay there year-round. How did
I find the Adams? I have always stayed at one of several old Plaka Hotels, some of which have been converted into
apartments. We went to one of the remaining ones and not only did the manager treat us like jerks but there was
a dead guy in a chair in the lobby. I turned to Andrea and said "Let's get out of here". We walked a
little further and found the Adams. Kosta and Dimitri were young, smiling and friendly in contrast to being rude
and dead so we stayed there. For me it was fine because I can stay anywhere and not notice my surroundings, but
Andrea is the opposite, a total fanatic about cleanliness and service. But she barely complained about the Adams
so I figured it was OK. But with the Adams you love it or you hate it. If you are a laid back person looking for
a cheap place to sleep so you can experience the joys of Athens you will be fine. But if you are a fanatically
clean person who wants your hotel room to reflect your personality you should probably go elsewhere. I have
stayed in almost every cheap pension and guest house in Athens, and with the exception of a few really bad ones,
they are all pretty much the same. The Adams is above average in this catagory and they get a lot of points for
location. I also think Kosta is a terrific guy.
This is a long overdue thank you. We, my husband, 8 year old son and
I doubt very much that we would have enjoyed Athens so much if it
Thank you once again for all of the invaluable information that you so
Happy holidays to you,

Well, we were there at the hotel just a few days ago and this is just a little note to say thank you for such nice hospitality, our family really enjoyed staying at your hotel, we had our 2 boys and my parents, all staying there! thanks Barry
Just a quick E-mail to tell you the Adams Hotel in Athens was great. We had a good view of the Acropolis from our room with two balconies and Kostas was very helpful. The last night he suggested the tram ride to Glyfada, which was great as we saw a beautiful sunset.

Dear Snejana at Adams hotel,
I just wanted to say thank you for making my trip to Athens (Plaka) most
memorable. I loved every part of Greece that I visited and tell you form
a visitors view that you have a beautiful and wonderful country filled with
very good people.
I shall never forget your kindness and hope to return to Greece again. I
will stay again with you. And I will tell my friends of my stay at Adams
hotel and recommend that that they stay with you.
I am missing Greece and sunshine. It is very cold here now as we are in
Kind regards and best wishes to you.
Dear Kostas and Jana at Adams Hotel,
Thank you for your hospitality when my brother and I stayed at your hotel in April. We enjoyed our stay in Athens.
It was nice to meet you both. I think your city is lovely and so interesting. I have been telling my sons about the wonderful things to see in Athens. I hope I can bring my family there someday.
Thank you, thank you for your website and for your assistance prior to our recent trip. As expected we had a pleasurable trip again to Greece and brought returned home with many good memories. One of the most important features of our trips continues to be the friendliness and kindness of the people. Each time we have experienced so many little kindnesses.
We read your website, and printed some pages from it for our travelling around Greece. We were in Athens July 5 thru July 9, and then moved to on Rhodes and stayed in new town from July 9 thru July 20.
We followed your advice and stayed in the Adams Hotel in the plaka in Athens. We were pleasantly surprised upon check in that our room had two bedrooms, one for us parents and one for our two teenage daughters. The bathroom was aged, but completely serviceable and always clean. The room in general was very clean upon arrival and throughout our stay, with the exception of the floors. If you know the owners, or have any amount of influence on them, you may suggest that they clean the floors and replace the carpeting. The wood floors were very dirty (black feet), and the carpeting was shiny and flat from abuse. Otherwise........the breakfast was adequate, the gentleman serving breakfast was very courteous, our room was cleaned nicely on a daily basis, I borrowed their hairdryer daily as mine had too high of wattage for my converter, and the location was quiet and fabulous for walking or taking the tram/metro system. We loved our time there!
Thanks for all your notes and words of wisdom on your website, it was a great help while planning our trip!
p.s. for anyone travelling from Rhodes to London as we did, I wouldn't recommend Thomas Cook airlines. My 5'9" daughter could not sit straight in her chair because her knees hit the chair in front of her to the point of pain. They had us packed in so tight, I couldn't get my bag between the two chairs to stow it under the one in front of me!! Now that is tight! They didn't give us an option of purchasing a meal in advance when I bought the tickets, yet I couldn't pay for food once on the plane, nor would they give us even water! We rode for four hours, from 4:35 am, without food and water on this airline. Probably the worst flight I have ever been on.
