We stayed for a couple of nights in Athens before going back from Greece. The location was very good close to Acropolis, Ermou and Plaka. Our room was small and a bit dated for the price. Breakfast was ok but the hall has limited seating(we had to sit in the lobby on our first day). The staff is friendly esp... More

I stayed here for a night while traveling through Athens, arriving late from the port & leaving early the next morning for the airport. Since I was only going to be in Athens for one night, I wanted a place with a nice rooftop where I could see the Parthenon from. I thought this hotel featured that, but it definitely... More

Although the rooms are sort of small, the hotel is pleasant and centrally located. It is close to the Acropolis, which is the main tourist attraction. It is also close to Syntagma Square. Breakfast was OK. The room was quite clean.

Super central location, still quiet, efficient aircondition (important in summer in greece), very nice staff - the hotel is obviously very well managed. Good prices and no downsides really - okay, the rooms are not huge, but this hotel is located in the very center of Athen's old town. I recommend this place!

I stayed three nights at this centrally located Plaka hotel. The staff were incredibly efficient and accommodated the various traveller needs quickly without being dismissive. During breakfast (with its yummy array of delicacies) a young lady would engage every table and ask if she could assist with 'any matter' and even offered to store one piece of luggage for 5... More

We stayed here for three nights and were really pleased with the location (just over 5 minutes walk to the airport buses on Syntagma Square, or just under 10 minutes to the direct underground link from Monastiraki, which takes you to either Pireaus or the airport. All of the major tourist sites are walkable (though the Archeological Museum is some... More

We only stayed at this hotel overnight as we had a late flight the following evening, but we found it to be clean, comfortable and centrally located. We had free wifi and a delicious breakfast. We were able to get a late checkout & the hotel stored our luggage for us and ordered our taxi for when we had to... More

Everything is conceived to make life easy for people visiting Athens, even if is just for 24 hours. The room is comfortable and clean, very good breakfast, storage for your luggage and comfortable hall with refreshments and free wifi while you wait to go to the airport at night. Located in the neighborhood of Plaka, which offers many restaurants an... More
