I recently stayed here for a couple of nights while on a tour around Greece. The room was very comfortable, if a little cramped, however this was mainly to do with the fact that they had fitted another bed in so that three of us could share a room. The bathroom door kept locking itself but was easily opened by... More

We asked for a triple room but they gave us a very small double with extra bed.In general, it was not as good as we expected to... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our time in Greece. We could hear the traffic in our room even though we were a few stories up. We had an issue with check-in - we had reserved our hotel online but they had delayed processing payment. When we showed up to check-in, the hotel desk informed us... More

The good - very conveniently situated for metro and bus tours, nice reasonably priced lobby bar, some good hot and cold breakfast choices, free luggage storage in a keyed luggage store while I was sailing.

No help with luggage, very basic room. Beds like planks. When the plug was pulled on the tub, the water came up the floor drain in the bathroom.Self service breakfast with little choice and poor products. The only saving grace is the rooftop bar and restaurant that is only open in the evening.

The hotel (3 star) is clean and convenient for us to stay over ( twin bed) before moving on to northern part of Greece to visit family. We booked it in October 2013 on the net with confirmation but were told no room available when we arrived. The manager reassured us that he would move us to a better 4... More

We arrived at 21.30 and were quickly informed about the facilities. Decided to eat at the roof terras restaurant. Beautiful view of the Acropolis on one side (other side is blocked by an enourmous empty hotel). Food was good, but not more than that. Second day we ate at restaurant Alexander The Great (a little bit more expensive, but close... More

In a good location, near the metro station. There are many shops and markets near the hotel. Big and clean room. The wifi was free of charge at the main hall. The restaurant in the rooftop has good view of Acropoli.

It is a nice 3-star hotel of great value for money. If you have limited budget yet still want to enjoy the convenience of transportation, clean and comfortable accommodations, and a nice view of Acropolis, this hotel is highly recommended! My room was on the 6th Floor where I could enjoy the view of Acropolis from my balcony. The night... More
