Thank you!

I don't often write e-mails such as this because it is not often that I receive this type of service. Early February saw me and my family leave Athens after a wonderful stay of four and a half years. The last couple of days were hectic, to say the least, and we had to stay at the Y for a couple of nights after our belongings were packed and shipped. The entitle team at the hotel showed us uncommon courtesy and a level of service unmatched anywhere else in Greece and, indeed, the world. And I have traveled a lot!!

A special thanks to Theodore and Chryssa but heartfelt gratitude to all the staff. It was a wonderful way to leave the country and we look forward to staying there again when we have the opportunity to visit Athens in the future.

“Comfort & Beauty in Athens”

I travel to Athens for both business and pleasure and I always stay at the Y Hotel. First of all, the hotel is lovely, with nicely decorated lobby and has a really welcoming and comfortable outdoor seating area in the front, great for a drink or meal. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful and the breakfast is good with coffee made to your liking (cappuccino, latte, espresso, etc). The rooms are well-appointed and the hotel is on a quiet street, so you can even leave the balcony door open in the evening for nice sleep with a breeze.

The hotel location is far from the city center (no chance to walk), but you can go by taxi for less than 20 euros or you can take a metro. If you are not in Athens for tourism, the hotel is in a lovely location. It's in the very hip Kifisia neighborhood which is full of pedestrian streets, shops, restaurants, and nightlife.

All in all, I really look forward to my next stay at Y Hotel.

TIP: Every room I've had has been nice, and the hotel website describes the amenities very well.

“Small design hotel in kifissia”

I have been in the Y hotel for a business trip to Athens. It was booked by my agent as he lives in kifissia and knows it. I have to say that it looks very nice, with new and design atmosfere. The rooms are small but well organized. The common areas look nice. I have not tried the gym but I believe it is small. The price is not cheap considering the economic situation in Greece I was expecting cheaper rate

“Very nice hotel in a beautiful place”

Small, cute, in a wonderful position in Kefalari. Service is perfect . Scent welcomes you from the moment you get in. Minimal design, comfortable. Have been there dozens of times, I really recommend it both for business or vacations travels

“Very comfortable hotel”

The hotel is situated i a nice area with lots of reataurants. The rooms are nice with good standard and are equipped with a very effective and silent AC.

The staff is very (very!) friendly and service minded. It is impossible to be more than two minutes in the lobby without being asked for wishes. Although we one day had to leave the hotel at five in the morning they prepared breakfast for us.

The only thing that could be improves are the lights in the corridors and the elevator. It looks very "designed" but it's pretty dark.

“The Athens Few Visitors Ever See”

Kifissia is a beautiful suburb of Athens at the northern end of the subway line (30 minutes from downtown). If you're eager to avoid the crowds and noise of a downtown hotel, consider staying in Kifissia at The Y Hotel. The Y Hotel is a beautifully renovated boutique hotel (about 40 rooms) with a superb staff. While the rooms are somewhat small they are stylish and the bathrooms are terrific (excellent showers). Breakfast is included in the rate and it's a beautifully presented buffet. Access to downtown and Pireas (the ferry port, 45 minutes away) is easy (via the subway) and taxis to the airport are fast (about 30 minutes via the highway that is about 10 minutes away from Kifissia). Kifissia is green and bustling with fancy shops and families out for dinner. Try O Tzitzikas Ki O Mermigkas-- they serve new Greek cuisine.

Room Tip: If you like to sleep with the French doors open (and the ac off) ask for a room that faces the rear...


“The way hotels should be”

Second time we stay at the Y hotel and I can say that it was as magnifisent as the first time.. Our room was at the 5th floor with 1 great balcony overlooking Athens. cleaning was excellent. The breakfast we ordered in the room was more than enough! The hotel staff are very helpfull and polite, from cleaning, bar, front desk, all the time with a smile. I would recomend the hotel to everyone.

We spent on night in the Y HOTEL, during the christmas holidays. We loved the warm and pleasant atmosphere. Our room was in the 2nd floor, modern decoration, great bed and matress, overlooking the small street, quite and comforable. The personel was warm and helpful and made you feel at home. The breakfast had a great variety of food. The hotel is situated at a small street at Kefalari area, and it is very quite. It's also in a pleasant walking distance from Kifissia shopping centre and night entertainment.

“An unforgettable stay!”

We stayed at the 'Y hotel' for only one night and we really wished for more! Our room was on the fourth floor. It was beautiful and comfortable, with a small balcony overlooking the trees of the back yard, making us feel as if we were in the countryside! The breakfast area was very stylish and the breakfast itself absolutely delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the area where the hotel is located is quiet, beautiful and peaceful but at the same time very central in Kifisia. The only negative point was the lack of parking space, which is hard to find in the area. Nevertheless, nothing could spoil our stay in that hidden diamond in Kifisia!


“Wonderful and Homely Hotel in Gorgeous Kefalari.”

I went to the Y Hotel for lunch today and the food, service and ambience of the place were lovely. The lobby was warm, welcoming and had a very relaxed ambience. The front desk staff were super friendly with a genuine smile at all times and very knowledgeable of the hotel when asked questions. I would consider making this my number one stop when I visit Athens as the whole hotel was just perfect.

The surrounding area is superb [very posh, green and up market] with great shops and cafes nearby.

I highly recommend this hotel and the restaurant/bar and even though I was only there for lunch it was like a home away from home! Very Nice! Thank you!


“Beautiful hotel, beautiful rooms, beautiful staff”

I usually stay at the Y Hotel to sleep over on my way to or from the Greek islands and everytime I just ask myself: Why don't I just stay here for my holiday? The rooms are really beautifully decorated and the beds are so comfortable, you don't want to leave them. I always unwind and feel relaxed the minute I arrive. The people working at the Y - at the reception and in service - are very warm, extremely friendly, helpful and generous, it's just a pleasure and it's them that make all the difference. Oh, and the snacks and the breakfast is really great, too.

“Calm and Cool!”

A little gem. Situated in a calm, up-market suburb of Athens this hotel would suit any occasion. Sadly I was on business but really appreciated its "boutique" style. My room was quite large and equipped with everything you would want (except for the comb I had left at home!) Shower room pretty tight. I understand that this used to be the Hotel CristinA and it had a VERY different reputation back in those days, but clearly EVERYTHING has since been changed!

“My favorite hotel for business travel.”

“My favorite hotel for business travel.”

I've stayed here many times, and have not yet written a review. I just love this hotel. I travel a great deal for work, and the Y Hotel is clearly the best of all my regular hotels. The staff are friendly, the breakfast is good, the rooms are well-appointed, the location is perfect for me.

Definitely recommended.

We all want to thank you for your wonderful service, for yours and all your colleagues answering all our needs and questions patiently, with  a smile.

The hotel, the penthouse, the views, facilities (even the gymnastic mattress which you sent to my room), the breakfast, and the coffee and cookies on our arrival (I hope I haven't forgotten anything) - all was excellent.

So now I am looking forward for the first opportunity to come again.

Please give mine and my family's thanks to every one of the staff.

Sincerely yours,

Mira L.



This is a lovely small hotel, at great location. Also value-for money, with the friendliest staff, especially at the Reception! Highly recommended!The breakfast had everything you'd need for the morning.
