I was in Athens for 2 days and this hotel was fantastic especially for the short time i was there. Central to all the attractions, walked to everything within 15mins. Location is fantastic, bars, restuarants, shops and markets all surround the hotel. Had a view of the Acropolis from my belcony. Room was just as shown on the website, only disappointing thing was the bathroom - the shower nozzel had to be held and shower doors didn't close. Breakfast was great - croisants, bread, sausages, egg, cereal, fruit, jam, cheese and cold meat., coffee, tea..kept me going the whole day. Receiption staff were very helpful, organising tours and area info etc.
The metro is just around the corner and if coming from the airport its the last stop - Monastraki, only costs EUR 6 single from airport. Metro is easy to use too although, if staying in Plaka hotel you can just walk everywhere.
Definately recommend doing a 1 day cruise to the 3 Islands - Aegina, Hydra and Poras - was beautiful. Personally you can do the ruins in Athens within a day.
I'd stay at this hotel again and recommend it to everyone...no regrets.
