The rooms here are small but tidy, some with balconies, and the service is very accommodating. The location is also a big plus - just a 5-10 minute walk to the main square (Monstariki) and to the Acropolis. Our only gripes were with the bed (a bit too firm with very odd bedding that didn't extend across the full bed... More

This hotel should be granted more than 3 stars. The area is very suitable for magnificent strolls up and down the main market street.The room was clean and tidy and reception crew was positive and polite. Breakfast is good and served at very logical time. I would definately reccomend it as one of the most useful hotels, which can combine... More

Enjoyed my five nights here. The place is well located for walking around - close to interesting neighborhoods, and a nice, relatively quick walk (if you're fit) up to the acropolis. My room was comfortable but small, with a nice large bed. The bathroom was especially small, and somehow not really complete or well finished (like someone's cousin did the... More

I chose this hotel for its location and I was right! It's a few steps from Syntagma square, where you can take the X95 bus to the airport, and also 2 steps away from Plaka, and a nice walk will lead you to Monastiraki. It's not a big hotel, the staff were so friendly and helpful in every way. Eva... More

This hotel is in a very central location in Plaka, in a quiet side street near the shopping street Ermou and the cathedral. The rooms are on the smallish side, but clean, the staff at helpful. They even found some slippers for me when I asked for them although they do not usually provide them. Breakfast spread is also sufficient.... More
