My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in November. Great weather for this time of year at 22 degrees c made the whole experience lovely. Our room was lovely, modern, clean and comfortable. We had a little view of the acropolis which was nice but not necessary as we spent little time in our room. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food is great for lunch and dinner although could be better being that it's a buffet there's not much to choose from in the fruit section and so on. And we were told that if you have more than one coffee for breakfast we would be charged which I thought was a little cheeky.
I had a really lovely massage in the very small spa but very relaxing with a complimentary discount on arrival. Amazing!
On the whole I thought the hotel was pretty prefect for our city break with so much going in the area from ancient ruins to shopping and hundreds of coffee shops filled with people at the weekend. Street dancers and flee markets. What a great place. And if you can get to a bouzoukia a Greek night out usually with a famous Greek singer and entertainment, it's a great way to spend the evening the way the Greeks do. Be warned night life doesn't start before 12-1:00am.
My husband and I were very much impressed with Athens and our very funky friendly hotel.
