The hotel was not what we expected. Rooms were small and dark. Taking a shower was a challenge, even with being careful the bathroom floor flooded. A good thing was very quiet and great location. Just one block from the center of everything that happens in Athens. Booked 3 nights and moved on after two, just needed something more.

We stayed at this hotel as a group of students from the US. The location is unbeatable on Syntagma Square really close to the subway and to the X95 bus that takes you to the airport. It is a budget hotel with older furniture but clean and in decent condition. If the price is right and the only thing you... More

We stayed for 2 separate nights at the start and end of our Greek island tour. First night, 5th floor, not too noisy but air con was next to useless. Had to depart before scheduled breakfast time, so no comment yet. Second time we arrived around 6pm and were given a room on the first floor - terribly noisy from... More

This 3 star hotel lies dead center Athens (Plaka). 5 euro bus from airport which is 40 min away also with a taxi stops very close. "The hop on hop off buss "starts its tour 1-2 minutes away. The roof top terrasse has a very nice view of Akropolis (better than in the pictures) especially at night. We could acrually... More

Amazing Greek yogurt for breakfast, great location, spacious room, amazing view from rooftop!! Cannot complain much but they were doing some renovation at 10 am in the morning and it was loud... overall, this is a great hotel for the price. I was pleasantly surprised with the rooftop view. It had better Acropolis view than some photos posted here.

Location: For the location, its awesome. Once we go down of our airport express bus ($5 euros, one way, that can be bought from airport, 40 mins ride.), the hotel is right in front of where we stopped at syntagma square. This place is located right smack in the middle of shopping and eateries. And the hop-on and off bus... More

The location of the hotel is excellent. Within walking distance of everything. The breakfast was not very good, and the hotel itself is an old 3 star place, with worn furniture, a few burn holes in bed sheets, tiny bathrooms. Everything was extremely old. Their system for keeping your luggage consist in a tiny room flooded with other guest's suitcases.... More

Bathroom was tiny, having to struggle with the shower curtain each time, couldn't wash my hair etc, just too small. Rooms are outdated. We we're given a room with two singles, even tater letting them know we would like a double.... More

This hotel is very close to 'the plaka' . In addition, if you plan to do the hop on hop off in Athens the bus stop is close by. It's a safe area close to many eateries and close to parliament square. A big plus very close to the metro. Overall, good hotel.
