Positives: Great staff - friendly, helpful and attentive; Very, very clean; Great breakfasts - best I've had in Athens, with really good quality ingredients - in fact, best morning "koulouri" we had and as for the smoked salmon...absolutely delectable! Also loved the decor in the room, especially the ceiling wall-paper that was an aerial photo of the area of Athens.... More

We stayed here for one night in the suite since they had a private jacuzzi. It was a little expensive but it was worth every penny . Especially on a cold winters evening what more would you want than a lovely, private outdoor jacuzzi with the view of Athens and a nice glass of champagne. Other than that the food... More

This hotel is one of the best minimal boutique hotels in athens!! Is very minimal with a nice concept from photos from parts of athens like you are in a submarine n you look over athens from a periscope!! Breakfast and generally everything is very good!!! Location is also ideal as in the heart of kolonaki!!! The only thing that... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. It's one of those compact, module type hotels that's good for one night. The ceiling is kind of claustrophobic once you're experiencing it. We thought the service was very good.

We stayed here as we wanted the penthouse room with the hot tub and it didn't disappoint! No it isn't in the tourist district but that's suited us we liked the walk each day and preferred the restaurants in the less touristy areas where it's more authentic. The hotel is surrounded by some really great bars and restaurants and we... More

Nice boutique hotel, excellent service, clean, very modern and trendy. Kolonky area is the best if you prefer to be away from the too toursty area, but still want to enjoy excellent restaurants, cafés and little boutiques. The hotel is small and charming. The restaurant is not very interesting for diner, but the breakfast is outstanding with smoked salmon, and... More

A small modernistic boutique hotel with good service, quiet, comfortable rooms and a surprisingly good restaurant. You can sit outside on a padded bench outside the restaurant to eat or have a drink, but frankly, there’s nothing to see on this little used side street. However, you’re only a couple of blocks away from Kolonaki Square if you want to... More

This is a very nice, modern, clean hotel with helpful staff in an upscale and relatively quiet area of the city. The bathroom was huge and the shower was hot with great water pressure! The breakfast provided a nice selection of items and was included in the price. Walkable distance to the Metro stop and lots of nice restaurants and... More

Modern boutique hotel in Kolonaki, near many different shops and restaurants and a quick cab ride to the Acropolis and plaka. The hotel in general, along with my room, was very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the HVAC system was very efficient. I travelled in early September and the days were quite warm but was kept very cool... More
