“Small but cute”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

So our trip was somewhat oddly planned out, which meant that we stayed in this hotel three separate times and in three separate rooms.

The good: the ladies in the dining room/restaurant were very nice, and two of the gentlemen at reception were also quite nice and helpful. The rest of the reception staff I found to be marginally helpful and sometimes quite short with us, particularly some of the men working at night. The food was good (we had breakfast and dinner there a couple times over the course of our stay). It is brought in from a nearby restaurant, but didn't take too long, and was quite delicious. The hotel is very close to a metro station, and one metro stop from a rail station, which is very convenient. Finally, the price is shockingly low.

The bad: the rooms are cute/tastefully decorated, but TINY. The first and second rooms we had barely had any space around the bed. We had two fairly big suitcases, and were constantly having to crawl over the bed or around each other to get around the room. (We saw some twin bed rooms while they were being cleaned and they were quite a bit bigger actually, but were right in front of the elevator... More on that later) The bathroom was also small. I am used to a small shower in my own home, but the ones in the hotel were so cramped that I constantly bumped into the shower walls. Word of advice: ask to stay in a room away from the elevator, because you can hear the "pings" of the elevator all night... You can even clearly make out conversations occurring in the elevator from inside the room with the door shut.

The ugly: there's no ugly. Overall, it was a decent stay, especially for the ridiculously low cost. The staff was professional (some much more friendly/helpful than others), meals good, location convenient, but rooms small.

situated just of a large square, this hotel is close to many transport facilities. the staff are very friendly and all have a vested interest in the best upkeep of the hotel itself which makes for an even more enjoyable stay. the room was very clean and the house keeping was of an excellent standard. The location was not very good but encountered no problems and local bars and cafe's were also extremely friendly
I would recommend this hotel and would return again

Staff was really nice and helpful. We stayed in the new section of the hotel which was very modern, clean and comfy. The room was rather small but very clean and pleasant. Metro 1.5 blocks away which takes you to different parts of the city in just a few minutes. Good breakfast.

The hotel was clean and the rooms quite new. The room was a bit small compare to what I saw in pictures but it was fine. It was one minute away from the metro station and 4 stops away from the acropolis so it was really well connected to the entire city. The área at night it is a bit scary and at the hotel they advised us to don't walk around an área close to the hotel. We didn't have any problems but maybe if I come back I will choose another área to stay closer to Monastikari or Plaka.

Our room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space. I liked the neighborhood, working class far enough from the busy tourist areas to be quiet at night but only a short 5 minute ride by metro to most any of the tourist highlights. Breakfast was more than adequate. One extra was while we were there there was a street market that appeared one morning outside the hotel clearly geared toward the local population; fruits vegetables clothes kabobs etc. we did some shopping while it was there for the day. The hotel is only one block from the metro. We would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is very clean & contemporary designed. Absolutely great value for money. The staffs always greet you with smile and very helpful. The hotel is just located within a stone throw distance to the metro station where you can go anywhere in the city easily.

I do not think I could have found a better hotel. It was by far the prettiest hotel and for a very very very good price. I stayed for three nights. Located across the street from the metro and laundry facilities around the corner. The staff was wonderful and helpful. Unfortunately my Greek was terrible but they all spoke English well and Niki was a wonderful teacher. I still tried to speak in Greek and I could tell they liked that. The rooms were breathtaking and comfortable, bathroom was very clean and nice, the restaurant had very good food as well. The first day we stayed we stumbled across a street market which was a lot of fun and cheap as well. If you go to Athens, do yourself a favor and stay here.
