“Excellent location, great room, great hospitality”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2013

Our host John was knowledgeable about the city and Greek history, he was also very hospitable and supportive, and even came to attend the lecture that we gave in athens, which was the reason for our stay! The location of the B&B; is perfect, the street is quiet, but around the corner of Syntagma square with public transport and all kinds of shops nearby, and access to different parts of the city center. The rooms were nicely decorated, the bed comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious. There were common areas where we could cook but didn't, as John suggested a variety of reasonably priced restaurants and other great addresses for drinks and food. It was even possible to do laundry.

I cannot say enough good things about this place. Just a short walk from the acropolis, the alice Inn is inexpensive, clean, welcoming, and very well-designed. The proprietor is friendly and accommodating, and will give you the best insider's tips for enjoying athens. He went out of his way to ensure our comfort - even helping us tow all our luggage to the metro station when we left! My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. Highly recommended for travellers of all shapes and sizes.

“Alice Inn: exceptionally affordable, incredible hospitality, per”

Reviewed 6 Dec 2013

Alice Inn is an amazing place! It's beautiful, clean, very central (view of the acropolis, which is fifteen minutes on foot) and has full amenities. (They may even make you breakfast!) The proprietor John is very lovely and takes care of your every need. As a native, English-bilingual Greek, he'll help you navigate the city with advice or phone calls, transportation help, other arrangements or whatever you need. Alice Inn is very affordable and is not only close to the acropolis and other landmarks, it is surrounded by fabulous cafes, restaurants, shops, etc. I highly recommend it without any hesitation. I can't wait to go back!

“Great place, generous owner/host!”

Reviewed 9 May 2013

Spacious studios, all different, all in simpel and in good taste. We immediately felt at home, it's the kind of place you could stay at for weeks. The location in Plaka, the old part of athens is excellent. Acropolis and the fantastic acropolis Museum are only a fifteen minute walk away. If you're in for some shopping you'll find antiquities, junk, shoes and elegant clothes only minutes away. That also goes for buses and the subway. This part of athens has a nice atmosphere, the style of the buildings is old and traditional, everywhere you'll find charming and inexpensive restaurants. Alice Inn is an excellent starting point and the best possible place to return to.

“A perfect retreat in the city centre”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2013

The alice Inn provides a perfect retreat in the centre of athens, the host was incredibly helpful and went out of his way to make my stay 'stress free' the rooms we clean and tidy and the shower was hot hot. I will have a regular need to visit athens in the future and if I'm lucky enough to get a room at the alice, I'll certainly be staying again.

“Both alice and Zorba would be honored to stay here”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2013

I'm tempted to make some kind of hallucinogen analogy about opening the door to alice Inn athens and falling down a rabbit hole only to emerge several days later with a smile and fuzzy memory of Tom Petty and Cheshire cats. But the rabbit hole metaphor is probably more suitable for athens itself - a wonderful city, at once chaotic and ethereally beautiful. The trauma its currently enduring - some of it self-made, most of it the effects of global capitalism - aren't reasons to stay away. Athens is struggling, but very much alive. A few facts about alice inn athens: 1. The building is gorgeous. An old townhouse in a city that the last half-century didn't treat well architecturally. Aesthetically it's a rare find. 2. While there I didn't encounter any psychedelic drugs nor copies of alice in Wonderland (though I'm sure he has some. Alice's, not drugs, of course!) but I did find a very well curated collection of literature in English, French and Greek. I hear there are more books and languages to come. Not only an inn, but a library/bookstore as well! 3. Clean, minimalist and modern, the Quinn Suite has none of the sterility I usually associate with those words. The night stands are made of old encyclopedias, the alarm clock is ancient, brown and bigger than my laptop and the wall art includes an aubrey Beardsley print and a still from Godard's Pierrot le Fou. 4. The breakfast part of this B&B; is taken very seriously. John the proprietor is a wonderful cook and baker. Fresh squeezed orange juice, good strong coffee and a slice of his homemade spice cake or freshly baked bread is a fine way to start any day. Ok, I've figured out the analogy. Athens is the wonderland and alice Inn athens is the perfect reprieve/sanctuary from the delightful madness of that wonderland. Highly recommended!

“Le paradis en attique”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2013

John est un hôte sympa, disponible et qui plus est excellent cuisinier. L'hotêl est très propre est très bien décoré, spacieux et agréable. La soirée sur le toit avec vue sur l'acropole restera inoubliable. En bref, courez-y!

“What more could you possibly ask for?”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2013

We have stayed at this very charming micro-boutique-bnb for a week over new year's and were absolutely thrilled about it. First of all, the location is simply perfect. The quiet street at the foot of the acropolis, in the very lively Plaka area in the historic centre allow you to discover a lot of the city by foot. In case you wish to go a bit further, there are two metro stations within five walking minutes and taxis waiting for you at the corner of the street. The place itself is very tastefully arranged - John, the owner, is an architect after all - and offers a couple of really beautiful rooms as well as a common dining and living room. The scale of the house is quite grand, yet you feel immediately at home. What really makes this place unique, however, is John, the host. He has a rare talent of treating his guests in a very accommodating and personal, yet very professional way. His cultural background and knowledge of the city of athens are incredible and always at your disposal. And on top of that, he is a very gifted cook: He prepared a delicious breakfast for all his guests in the early afternoon of new year's day. What more could you possibly ask for?
