Stay Away !
Rio is a very very bad hotel. We stayed 4 weeks.
It says 3 star but is actually 1 star.
I almost made a report to the Athens Tourist Police it was that bad.Β
The hotel and service and staff are unfit for a hotel in Europe.
Angry old man owns the hotel with wife and child. He inherited hotel.Β
Flees in our bathroom on 1st day.
The man yelled at us for complaining to him. It felt he was going to hit us.
No double bed which we paid for Instead they tied 2 single beds with a gap down the middle.
Sheets not cleaned unless asked
Front doors of hotel locked each morning and night must ask permission to unlock to leave the hotel before 7am.
Curtains in hallways closed permanently including in foyer. Very dark.
Covers on couches in the foyer you cant remove them you must sit on covers instead.Β
Scolded if you move any curtains.
Paid for breakfast-terrible. Cold boiled eggs. Coffee cups not clean- we washed these each day ourselves before use.
Electricity not on all the time.
Hot water in bathroom for shower not on before 7am or after 7pm. We asked each day to turn on hot water which takes 10 minutes to heat.

Hotel Rio Athens was excellent choice for me and my wife.
We get there in the middle of winter but the hotel was so warm inside that we didn &ීt feel the cold not for a minute.
The metro station Metaxurghio was a minute walk for the hotel and make our movement more comfy.
Acropolis, Plaka, Museums were a walking distance for hotel,the staff very helpful to give us directions and informations. The room were clean and tidy.
Definitely recommended this hotel!!!

My wife and I spent four nights at the Hotel Rio and were not disappointed. The hotel is very conveniently located to all major attractions and the room was comfortable and more than adequate for our needs. Highly recommended if you like the downtown atmosphere and excellent value for money.

We just returned from staying in the Hotel Rio Athens for 5 nights. The Metro was 50 meters away and had lift access to the street which makes it very accessible from anywhere interesting in the city center, the airport and Piraeus. Everywhere is within walking distance. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast in the restaurant was without a doubt the best I&ීve had in any hotel I&ීve stayed in anywhere. The rooms were cleaned daily. Everyone who worked at the hotel spoke English, it made everything easier. I would highly recommend this hotel to explore Athens with your family.

The hotel βRioβ was a good choice. The hotel was clean, quiet, and well-situated with easy access to the Metro. The staff was very helpful and English speaking. The breakfast was excellent and the choices were more than enough. The most important thing was that it was very QUIET. It is located right in the city center which made it very easy for us to get around. Overall - a good experience.

Hotel Rio Athens is a very welcoming 3 star hotel in the centre of Athens. We were very pleased with our time at the hotel. Convenient public transportation, the metro station “Metaxourghio” and very close (walking distance) to the ancient sites, the Acropolis, the National Archaeological Museum, the Old town Plaka etc.
The breakfast was buffet and had a variety of delicious morning foods to choose from. >br>
The staff of the hotel was magnificent. The rooms were very clean. The bar and the restaurant downstairs serve delicious Greek and Italian food.
The people in the travel agency next door were very helpful by arranging our day trips, Athens sightseeing, Delphi, Argolis, Meteora and the Greek islands.
