I was looking for an inexpensive place to stay for two nights after a cruise waiting for a flight home. A friend recommended this hotel as it was half the price of the one I had chosen. I did it, but then worried about what I would find. It was actually okay. It was clean but small. The bathroom was... More

If you're looking for a small, inexpensive hotel near to all of the things to see, then this hotel is a good option. Easy walking distance to the Acropolis, parliament, and Monasteraki square. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The room was VERY small and bathroom had a very interesting shower setup which had the toilet inside the... More

The room was very formula one style clean and efficient . Was very easy to find and close to everything you want to see and do in Athens. Could see the acropolis from the balcony. We stayed on a weekend and the street noise and church bells were quite bothersome if you left the window open. The fix was to... More

Our room was just big enough for the bed and the bathroom matched and it was very new and spotlessly clean. Staff were super helpful and friendly. We had a good view of the Acropolis (3rd floor). Bed soft, new and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel.

If you are looking for a small hotel in the heart of Athens, this is the right place for you. The hotel is located just next to Ermou. Our room was small, bed was comfortable enough and bathroom was OK. I guess other rooms have renewed bathrooms but ours had not which was not a big deal for us. Our... More

Got off the bus at Syntagma Square, walked five minutes down the road and arrived at the hotel. Fantastic friendly welcome by the owner - clean, spacious room with an amazing view of the Acropolis. Super helpful reception staff.. Couldn't fault at all, would definitely stay there again

So centrally located, everything was easily accessible, Metro, open top tour buses, restaurants, shopping, Syntagma Sq. Great view of Acropolis from our balcony. Go up onto roof for better view. All staff were super friendly and helpful, many thanks guys! Rooms are fine and good value for money. Felt very safe there.

We stayed here for 10 nights early March. We couldn't have asked for a better time. The location was excellent & the staff were amazing. The rooms as stated in other reviews are very basic, but what else do you need when you're visiting a city like Athens(you spend all your time roaming). The beds are comfortable, the rooms are...

5 minute walk from Syntagma Square where the x95 airport bus stops. We had room 51 (Acropolis View) which did give a fantastic view from the large pretty balcony. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The room is next to the lift though so there is some infrequent noise from the lift and from the eager early morning cleaner!... More

Central hotel, with beautiful views of the 'Akropoli, clean and modern in' furniture. Good compromise between price and quality. Close to Metro and suitable for children, families and single people who want to visit Athens without public transport or taxi. Great hospitality and helpfulness of the manager
