Only down side was the TV. Very little except... More

Had a very good 6 night stay at this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was very good in both the breakfast room and the bar/cafe. The rooms very a good size but a bit in the warm side and we could not get the heating control to change the temp, saying that you could open the... More

I loved this hotel. The people were very nice and helpful. You could not ask for a better location. There are restaurants and shopping right outside your door. You can get to Syntagma Square in 2 minutes and Monastiraki Square in about 8. Two of the tours I did started right off Ermou street. The room was big for European... More

The hotel is very clean, breakfast is excellent and the location is perfect. You go right and you hit sytagma sqare (parliment house) go left and you hit... More

This hotel is on Ermou street and close to some of the main attractions in Athens including the Acropolis/Parthenon, syntagma square and the Plaka. The staff were friendly and the hotel looked neat and clean. The rooms are very small by Australian/Asian standards but are normal for Europe. There seem to be some rooms that are not as small as...

Second time here. Excellent location in the very center of Athens, right next to Syntagma square. Great value for money. Nice rooms - not very big, but nice. Nice, clean bathroom with good shower. Well equipped minibar. Friendly staff and good breakfast buffet. Many good restaurants within short walking distance from the hotel.

Nice place to stay. It's in a great area close to The Plaka and all tourist sites & shops. The afternoon staff on the day of our arrival were not very friendly or helpful BUT the staff who attended us on the morning of our departure where wonderful. Would recommend & stay here again.

I stayed on business, so I could enjoy the surroundings just after eight in the evening. Proximity to the Parliament and the consequent presence sometimes of protesters manifestations . Personnel trained and helpful. Varied breakfast. Very negative element is the payment for the line wifi in the room. A hotel that will also appeals to a business user, and that... More
