Athens hotel with Acropolis view from room/balcony

Looking for a room in Athens with Acropolis view from room/balcony. A lot of the hotels advertize Acropolis view only have it in their roof top terrace, not directly from the room or balcony in the room.

Budget is $250 or less, dates are Sep 24-27.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Electra Palace has them but can't say we enjoyed the hotel, just the views.

The little "A For Athens" boutique hotel has full views, amazing at night, right on Monistiraki square, immediately opposite the Metro. But you need to ask for a front room, with view, on a high floor but NOT the top hotel floor, as the rooftop bar is right above & is very noisy til late at night! Good breakfast in the bar.

Hotel Attalos has a great view from their rooftop bar. You can also book a room with a balcony that has a "side-ways" view. But the rooftop is a great place to relax and have a bottle of wine at the end of the day.

As stated the Attalos has one of the best rooftop bars with spectacular views of the Acropolis and all of Athens. You can get a room with a balcony with some views of it but you'll save lots of money with a regular room and then getting access to the rooftop bar at no extra cost.

Our room at Hotel Phaedra in the lower Plaka has a view of the flag end of the Acropolis, but you probably want a view of the Parthenon? If so, you probably want a room in Psyrri because other areas are too close (you're looking up at a wall).

PS: J'aime beaucoup Carcassone!

We had a Parthenon view from our second- or third-floor room on the back (north facing) side of the Herodion. Plus a better one from the rooftop bar/restaurant.

To be sure of getting such a view from your room or balcony, check ahead with the hotel and specify it in your reservation. Besides being on the "wrong" side, some rooms may have obstructions like other buildings, trees, etc.

I'm booking Acropolis Hill hotel for a family of 5, they have interconnecting rooms. Has anybody stayed there and has input?

Most of the acropolis view rooms for my dates were either booked or out of my price range.
I ended up booking this AirBnB: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/19669623 (Addr: Navarchou Nikodimou 4)

Staying in an AirBnB is a totally different experience than a hotel but I found several properties that have acropolis view and cheaper.
I picked this one because it's managed by an agency that has mulitple properties and good reviews. And it looks like a vacation property, not someone's home. Personally, I find it weird to stay at a place that the owner currently lives in and just temporary moved out for the rental period.

The agency arranged to pick me up from the airport and check me into the apartment early, eventhough my fligt arrives at 10:30, way before the offical check-in time of 3p. Very good service. Will see how this all pan out.

I'd appreciate hearing how the AirBnB worked out for you. We're considering it in Athens, also.

Looks luxurious but kind of pricey. Hopefully it works out for you. One thing to consider on accommodations is: how much money do you want to spend on an accommodations especially when you'll be spending more time outside of it?

I love this unit. The AirBnB experience was great. Customer service was execellent, replies within minutes. They let me check-in early (before noon) so I could start my touring early. It's a pure vacation rental so no "owner personal" belongings. Absolutely no issue with this AirBnB.

I should point out that at the time of my visit (Sep '17), the West side (Propylaea) of the Parthenon is completely covered with scaffolding with a huge crane in front of it. Luckily this flat looks up to the opposite East side (Greek flag) which, during my visit, is construction free. I'd be very disappointed if I pay extra for an Acropolis view and it's surrounded by metals. So I got lucky this time.

I have no regrets paying the asking price for the magnificant view.
