We’ve just come back from three nights stay. We booked direct through the hotel’s own website and saved money on what the booking sites were quoting. The hotel is ideally located for exploring the sites and sights of Athens and is about 400m/5 minutes walk from the X95 airport express bus stop near Syntagma square. The rooms are simply furnished... More

We stayed for 2 nights in Oct 14 and would have liked to stay longer! Hotel isn't the smartest but has a lot of character and is in a perfect location. If you don't mind walking up 3 flights of stairs with your bags (no lifts) then recommend room 16. Has beautiful views from the balcony of the Acropolis (great... More

It's located near Plaka, walking distance to Hella Shopping Area and Ermou St. Walking distance to Acropolis. Spacious room (room no 2) with big balcony. However, the toilet is very small. And wifi coverage is very weak in the room.

Perfect location away from noise but close to everything. Between Syntagma square and Adranou madness! Katerina at reception delightful to come'home' to, all staff friendly and helpful. Air con and shower great. Rooftop view of Parthenon a bonus. Try Paradisaio taverna in polonas street toward Niki's for authentic Greek food. Clean, safe and comfortable. No lift (3 floors).

I stayed there in August 2013 overall 4 days, 2 days from my trup start and 2 days by the end of my trip. The owner, Greg Armatas, was a very nice person and very attentive, the other workers were also good, but Greg was always happy and willing to help :) Location is great!!!!!!! it is some 5 minutes...

We were only passing through Athens so chose Plaka for convenience. How convenient it was!!! 10min walk to the Acropolis, new museum (a must) etc. through bustling store lined streets. So many restaurants to choose from. It's very cheap so for a short stay, put up with tiny, tiny bathroom..the rooms are perfectly clean (latex mattress was comfy but a... More

Helpful staff, nice bedroom, great location. Free wi-fi and a big TV. What else to ask for? From terrace there is an astonishing Acropolis view. No escalator but that wasn't a problem. Eco friendly as well. I recommend it for families, shopping and cultural tourism.

We booked a Family Suite with Acropolis View for 2 nights. Our room was # 16 on the 3rd floor; Great sized suite - 2 rooms, kitchenette , good aircon and an outside deck ( that is for all guests) that had a great view of the Acropolis. The stairs were a killer but we knew that and we had... More

Yeah, the missing elevator is the bad part. We stayed in room 15, on the top floor, by the terrace, and going up the stairs with luggage is not always nice and easy. The room was very good and spacious, good wifi, and sleeping quality. The staff was very nice and the location is ideal for sightseeing, shopping and nightlife.... More

This was a very friendly little hotel with the staff being friendly and welcoming, I really liked the breakfast on the roof looking at the Acropolis, although it was even better in the evening when the lights came on to light up the hill and monument. Because the hotel is in the side roads you get to see the small... More
