    This has been one of the worst hotels I have ever been, dirty and no way a 3 stars hotel. It was so horribly designed that you could hardly look at the room. They said my room would a superior double room which was in offer, but If that was a superior, I really cannot imagine the rest of the rooms. They did not have a microwave to heat a babybottle. The outside private parking is on the street, It is not closed and you have to leave your car keys at the reception. And just to say, no air conditioning whatt so ever, in our room at least. And the toilet, well, I let it to your imagination.

  • Couple
    7.0

    We stayed on the 7th floor and our room had beautiful view of all Athens. The hotel is inexpensive and basic.

    It was bit far to walk to the centre. Hovewer there is a metro station close so you can take the train.

  • Couple

    Location - 5 minutes from metro, low price, wifi works

    Very small room, very noisy street, bad sound insulation. If you open the window to get fresh - you feel like on a street-racer track. If you close it - it gets stuffy and hot. If you switch on the air-con its too noisy! When someone talks in a room next door - feels like he's inside your room! When someone uses wc upstairs - it feels likes he uses yours!

  • Couple

    The only positive of this hotel is that it is one of the cheapest hotels cost-wise in Athens and is located a block away from the rail station- thus you have easy access to all tourism spots (Acropolis- 4 stations away, airport- 45 minute ride).

    Balasca is a very budget hotel. The staff were not unfriendly and not helpful. The hotel room itself was dirty and the cleaning services for the room are minimal. The bathroom is very small, I am 5'3 and I even had trouble using it. I found the 7.5 rate by Booked.net to be misleading.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The staff were great and the room was clean.

    For a double room there should be a full size double bed. We only had a three quarter size bed, which was a bit small for two of us.

  • Couple
    7.8

    The daytime front desk person was very nice and very helpful. Close to the Larissa station, but we ended up walking down to the Plaka and city center quite often. We also found some great, cheap, greek food outside the touristy area, so that was very nice as well.

    The area around the hotel is not the best. I never felt threatened, but there is definitely difference in cleanliness and quality of streets and buildings nearby.

  • Couple

    good location from railway station, helpful staff

    a little bit noisy

  • Couple

    Friendly staff,nice location,clean room,tasty breakfast and free wi-fi!

  • Couple
    9.6

    Clean and nice hotel,next to the metro station.low price,free wi-fi in the room!

  • Couple

    We liked to have a room for 3 as if we was just 2, then it was spacefull!! We liked the balcony, the geographic situation, the price...

  • Single
    5.8

    good for such a low price. if you dont wanna spend to much, this is the hotel of choice.

    quite dirty room and unclean bathroom specially shower part. definitely not good for famillies.
