We were incredibly disappointed With the Candia Athens Hotel. Our cab driver from the airport was a bit confused why two people on their honeymoon would be staying here. We were not sure what to make of this until we arrived. The hotel is located in the center of a very rundown and less than "savory" neighborhood. The hotel is more than a 20 minue cab ride from anything of note in or around the Plaka. We asked the cab driver if walking would be faster, to which he vehemently discouraged, citing "safety". The gentleman at the front desk was rude and univiting. We reserved a double bed (we were on our honeymoon) but were provided with three separate twin beds. Upon presenting our reservation for a double bed room to the previously rude clerk, he became angry and slid a new key across the counter. Upon entering the new room. The view was of a fire escape and the loading dock. And the bathroom door would not close, due to the sink being in the way. The manager was equally unwelcoming and rude. She essentially said "not my problem". We left without a refund and stayed at the Central Hotel, for only $40 more a night but 40x better in every way. less
