This modern hotel in the central Monastiraki area of Athens provided an excellent base for visiting the important archaeological sites as well as the surrounding areas of Plaka and Syntagma. There is a super roof terrace complete with loungers and a bar and from there you get amazing views of the Acropolis.
We chose a room with a view of Lykavitos Hill on the 8th floor which had a balcony, and was wonderful for relaxing on after a day sightseeing. Our room was spotless and cleaned every day with fresh towels provided daily too . Also, the metro station to and from the airport is just a short walk from the hotel which was a bonus!
Full marks to the staff who were very helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome. They always had a cheerful smile at the ready.
Breakfast was quite substantial with a selection of cereals, fruit, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausages, beans, bacon, choice of breads, toast, juices, teas, coffees.......just to mention a few. There was always something different. In the large reception area residents could help themselves to free coffee and biscuits at any time. A nice gesture I thought and one I haven't experienced anywhere else.
Some reviews mention the homelss drug addicts ouside the hotel. In actual fact they are on the walkway above the market/car park and are not a threat. One doesn't have to pass them at any time. I was aware of them when I looked from my balcony but that was the only time I saw them. I didn't feel intimidated or threatened at all and found the area safe .
There was a fresh fruit and veg market in the street outside the hotel , with a flea market and countless shops and restaurants within walking distance.
I have no criticism whatsoever about this hotel and if I return to Athens it would be my first choice. I highly recommend it
