Pros & Cons of the Moxy Athens

My husband and I overnighted at the Moxy Athens City last fall before our cruise departure to the Middle East. Marriott’s Moxy hotels have a playful vibe and are well located in city center areas. This was our second Moxy stay; as our first was May 2022 in San Diego.


With a convenient location – Moxy Athens City hotel was a great spot for one night. After an overnight flight we were also pleasantly surprised our room was ready hours ahead of time. This deserves bonus points after a long travel day!

Kudos also to the extra friendly and accommodating staff! Being a new hotel – I also appreciated how clean it’s kept.

One more feature deserves a shout out – compared to the room size, the Moxy has a spacious, nicely tiled, walk in shower

During your stay – don’t miss a bite a the Veneti Great Baggeion! We had tasty pastries and my hubby got his coffee fix at this cafe a couple doors down from the Moxy.


Moxy hotel rooms are extremely small with little to no storage. The Moxy Athens City hotel was no exception. There’s no closet or drawers – only a few areas to hang clothes on hooks. It’s also tight with not much space to open suitcases.

If Moxy needs one big upgrade – it’s in the beds. Both I’ve stayed at have extremely hard mattresses. These are in definite need of improvement and comfort!

The Moxy Athens City is perfect for one night… but I don’t recommend it for longer stays. For a similar boutique hotel experience and short visits – in 2021 we preferred the NEW Hotel Athens for room size, location, and rooftop bar. 

Until the next adventure – bon voyage!
