Decent place to stay. Rooms could be maintained better. Our room had a broken security chain on the door. Internet speed was rather poor but they were 100% occupied. The bed covers had cigarette burns. I was pleased with the location, cost, staff.

The clean was clean, but older and their bad thing is the hotel had only 2 ice makers. The first night the air conditioner wasn't working in our room like it should and the refrigerator wasn't working. We had to move to another room the next day.

I booked this hotel thru a website and was skeptical about it, but after I checked in, I was pleasantly surprised by the comfy beds. You can tell it was remodeled, however the sliding glass doors need to have better security on them. The TV wasn't the best quality and needs to be upgraded. Overall yes I would stay here... More

I stayed in a king room near the office. It was remodeled and had a nice modern decor. Access to rooms is from the inside and you have to have a room key to access the hallway. The front desk staff was pleasant and accommodating. It was a quiet uneventful night, which was perfect for a business trip. Also the... More

Had no choice but to get this hotel as the my first choices were filled up. It was a busy weekend in Athens. The lady who helped us with the reservation was nice. The rest of the staff, too, were okay except for this one lady who happened to be there during check out. She was rude and did not... More
