Great localization, next to subway. Excellent staff. Great breakfast. Clean and not so expensive. There are nice places around to go out to eat. You can go walking to some attractions. Staff speaks fluent English.

The hotel is nice, unfortunately not in a very good location, but value for money. The service in all areas is disaster. Especially in the. Breakfast lounge , staff is so lazy. All tables are left full of everything without even taken them into the kitchen. The buffet is never filled up and if you ask for something you will... More

The staff here were very helpful and it was handy for getting to the Acropolis, Agora and the Keramikos as the metro was just around the corner and we only had to travel a couple of stops. The breakfast and evening meal buffet were pleasant and there was sufficient variety. For me the beds were too firm but we only... More

We are indebted to our tour operator for having selected this hotel for our stay in Athens. We stayed here for 3 nights. During the day time, we were either walking around Athens or visiting nearby islands/places (Hydra and Delphi). This place was perfect for us to come back and rest our backs. The location of this hotel might looks... More

Hotel is located just around the corner from the Metaxourghio metro station (Metro Line 2) with the journey time being approximately 50 minutes from the airport. Note that if coming from the airport you will have to change at Syntagma Metro Station and then travel two stops to reach Metaxourghio. I found the hotel staff to be friendly and helpful... More

Despite the friendky staff and great location, our room was small for 3 people. Both A/C and TV were not working properly. They should also change those carpets, Athens is pretty hot and they don't match the weather at all...

I've spent 3 nights in Athens on this hotel. First impression was an average hotel. The neighborhood did not seem very friendly, sometimes even miserable. 20 minutes walk to the Plaka, Sintagma Square or other objectives. Rooms were clean and decent, with clean bathroom and good ventilation. Decent services, but only 2 elevators that can not be enough, especially when... More
