The location of this hotel is awesome, a 5 minute walk down to the Plaka area and just off Syntagma Square. All transport connections, be it the tram or metro are within reach at Syntagma. It is also a leisurely 10 - 15 minute walk to the Acropolis area. Extremely convenient for anyone interested in exploring Athens by foot.
The hotel staff is incredibly helpful and courteous. Always serving with a smile and ever willing to help with everything right from the bags, to directions, suggestions on what to see, cabs etc. Made our stay there a pleasure!
The only thing I found slightly overbearing was the decor of the hotel. While it is incredibly modern and unique in parts, it can get a bit much in some parts. Also, we were travelling with kids and the interiors were incredibly child unfriendly (although we can't really blame the hotel for that!). The other thing that didn't match our taste was that the room had the wash basin outside the bathroom near the entry foyer of the room. Other than that, the room size was average to small, with all modern amenities and facilities. The automated blinds were awesome, completely blacked out the outside lights allowing us a sound nights sleep on their incredibly comfortable beds!
Would surely recommend this hotel!
