This hotel was perfect. We were there for a business meeting and the meeting space is great. The meeting room we had came with an excellent view of the Aegean Sea. The meeting room also had valuated ceilings and was bright and airy. This is one of the quietest hotels I have ever stayed at. I barely heard any noises... More

Very kind and helpful staff. (thank you all, you really make the difference!) All very clean and tidy. Good breakfast, simple but generous. Wonderful view from the room windows and from the terrace, accessible at every hour. Our family room was so small. Not-so-comfortable beds. The walls are thin and if you're not deep-sleepers, it can be a nightmare (people... More

Everything was good enough and nothing was really wrong with it. 1. The neighborhood is full of graffiti making it appear unkept and even dangerous,, definitely not a pleasing first impression. But the hotel... More

Good location, rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice view on the Acropole. The balcony was fully appreciated. Public transportation (metro) is quite close. The street is quiet and calm. No noise at night.

Very good location, 5 walking minutes from Monastiraki metro station, Monastiraki square, Ermou street & Plaka.Next to the Psiri square, full of tavernas, cafes and bars. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast buffet was rich. Very good price. Thanks for the room on the 6th floor with beautiful view to the Acropolis!

Stayed here over the weekend for a solo trip around athens.
