This is a great place to stay to visit Athens. It's just on the edge of the Plaka area, with its narrow, picturesque streets. And it's about 20 mins walk from the Acropolis. Our room was quite small, but had everything we needed, including an excellent shower. We also had a fine view of the Acropolis, which we appreciated. The roof terrace with its bar is worth visiting in the evening, as it has a fabulous view of the Acropolis. The hotel is about 5 mins or so walk from Syntagma square, which is served by the X95 express bus to and from the airport every 15 mins (5 euros single in April 2013).
The breakfast buffet is good, and replenished frequently. However, when the hotel is full, there aren't enough seats in the breakfast room, and you might have to wait for a table.
There is free wifi in the hotel, but it's not very stable.
