Bad hotel with an elevator and there is even a small luggage did not enter it. Bad smell throughout the hotel. Old and ugly corridors. Rooms with hard and uncomfortable bed that moves all night. Shower small and crowded and dirty. Breakfast disgusting and poor. The only good thing in this location. Beyond that, the price is not worth a... More

Positive - location, breakfast, clean, friendly staff. Negative - single beds put together as a double, small shower, no pool. Requires requires addition room facilities to raise itself from other similar hotels.

The hotel is clean, well located and the price is fair. Good option for families. The service is excellent. This is a no-frills hotel. It's within 10-15 minutes walking distance to the Acropolis and 5-10 minutes to Plaka.

This hotel has a good location, near to Syntagma Sq. subway stations, and near to several excellent and inexpensive restaurants. The rooms are basic but very clean, and the beds are comfortable. My large family had a triple and a quad room, both of which were more like small suites, with the third and fourth beds separated. The breakfast was... More

We stayed only for one night for transfer. Yhe location was Close to Acropolis, but the hotel was in a narrow street and the neighborhood was not the best. OK rooms wit AC, but the hotel was quite "narrow", but had eight floors. OK breakfast. But probably not a hotel to stay in for a longer stay.

I picked this hotel because I booked my trip to Athens at the last minute and all other centrally located hotels were fully booked. Overall, I’m glad I found it and I’m glad I stayed there, although it would not have been my first choice had I had other options available. The price was a bit high for the quality... More

If you want a good simple room in a nice part of Athens then stay here. There are only 2 things I can fault. The first being that after travelling for 24 hours the staff member at checkout was condescending, rude and almost mean. And all this for no reason at all. Absolutely nothing! My first thought was 'I hope... More

Our room was exactly as the pictures showed and exactly what is described. It was quite a large spacious room and bathroom considering the cost and location. The lift can only take max two people at a time which can be frustrating if lots of people are checking in at once but do not put more than that in it... More

Good hotel, found through Trip Advisor, but we had to change rooms because of the street (and elevator) noise ... The bars on the main street close only at 4 in the night ... during the week and week-end ... I will therefore recommend to take the rooms ending with 1, 5 and 6, located on the other (quiet) side...

The location is perfect. Walking distance to major historic sites, restaurants, and all that is happening. Also very close to the city center square where you can get on the bus, tram, or metro subway. Don't expect a luxury hotel but it fits the historic area. The staff is very nice and helpful. Wifi, free breakfast (same daily). Pub across... More
