“funky hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

this is like no other hotel i have stayed in when it comes to decor! It is done in pinks,lime greens, bright reds and fluorescent indigo colours. At first glance it is startling but you come to like it. Even the rooms are done up in garish colours.
The service is good and people helpful.
The hotel is well connected and the road which goes from hotel by the side of a garden towards the train station is a tree-lined avenue with beautiful shops on either side.
The food is good.
It is a some distance away from the main city square and the parthenon but taxi takes you there in about 20minutes.
Overall it is worth experiencing it.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the garden and the mountain view. The rooms in the back have swimming pool view...

I've stayed here for 1 full week on business three times and have loved each stay. I actually look forward to returning to the hotel after a long day at work -- the staff is very helpful and pleasant, the beds are supremely comfortable, the breakfast is great, and the modern design throughout is extremely pleasing. You won't regret staying here.

Amazing collection of kitsch and fun art. Staff were amazingly friendly and useful. Great cocktails and food, but most of all one of the most fun hotels I have ever stayed in. Quirky is right! Handy for the airport and only 30 minutes or so to down town by metro.

Room: not too large but made in a very funny design. Very bright colors, lots of bright green and pink. Spotlessly clean. Certainly not everyone will like it. I did like it as it was very unusual. Feels almost like a children room. There are no room numbers on the doors, so every room had a special sign. Certainly something very innovative and cute in some way. I forgot twice where my room was as I only had a sign so I got lost twice but actually found it amusing.

Reception and service: friendly and welcoming. One can see that the hotel is trying hard to provide a top service.

Overall: this is a very special hotel, and I strongly recommend at least to try it. Also, given the price, it's a good value for money.

Entering this hotel is a true experience: all those colors, shapes and funny details. Besides there are great art works everywhere. The rooms are well equipped and meet all expectations. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great place to relax when visiting the far more busy old centre.

This was our first trip in Athens, so picking a hotel for us was very difficult because we had no clue! We got lucky!The Hotel was great, bright colours everywhere and the atmosphere was very friendly.I can say enough about the staff..they were terrific. From the moment we walked in the door until the time they hailed a cab for us to leave, we were treated like we were valued customers. The friendliness, warmth, caring and concern that were showed to us was like nothing I have ever seen in all my travels..that's saying a lot.

Well done and will definitely stay again
