Located down a little alleyway well off Anastasiou Zinni in the relaxed 'hood of Koukaki, the one-star Marble House provides an exceptionally quiet budget bed. The hotel is sequestered at the base of the alley's cul-de-sac. In fact, we had some difficulty finding it.
Students and families are the most common guests here. The entryway, in coordination with the hotel's name, is marble and full of cute mosaics. The mirrored lounge area next to the reception is comfortable, though a bit dark even during daylight hours.
Various hues, from sky blue to buttery yellow, accent the walls and draperies in each of the 16 recently renovated rooms, adding color to the white linens and wrought-iron furnishings. We liked the mini-fridges and free Wi-Fi in every room.
Like most budget hotels in Athens, the Marble House bathrooms have no shower curtains. To compensate, some Marble House bathrooms do feature lovely retro shaded blue and white tiles. Downright plusses include the extremely quiet location, greenery outside alley-facing rooms, and a lovely patio/bar area. Oh, and the incredibly helpful staff.
Breakfast is available for an additional €5. Note: the hotel does not have an elevator.
