“Perfect location for historic Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This property is perfectly located for visiting historic Athens. It's a 5 star boutique property offering great service, a wonderful (included breakfast), fantastic views and is walking distance in a safe area that makes Athens accessible. The staff was wonderful, the food was very good. When we go back to Athens, we will stay here again.

Great hotel with a rooftop restaurant/bar that gives the best photo-view of the Acropolis especially at night. Nice room, clean and comfortable and very friendly and courteous staff, especially the staff in the rooftop restaurant (facing the Acropolis). Great location with plaka area just a short walk round the corner. The Temple of Zeus is opposite the hotel too! Plenty of eateries, we enjoyed being serenaded by Greek musician while having our dinner, just round the corner from the hotel.

We stayed in a superior room for one night in May. Upon request we got a acropolis view room. The views were stunning. especialy during night time. also the terrace garden gave us views of both acropolis and the temple of zeus. The hotel is located just at the foothill of the acropolis and at the doorstep of the famous plaka area. So we did not need any means of transpport to go abt. everythng could be done by walking. Upon request, we got a free late check out till 4pm. What more can one ask for?! :)

We stayed for 3 days at the beginning of our Greece trip (5 adults - 3 rooms). The rooms were smallish, but clean and comfortable. The lobby was roomy and wifi was free. The rooftop views were amazing - looking at the Acropolis on one side and Gate of Zeus on the other. Breakfast is served there and they have a bar and restaurant for dinner and late night cocktails - You have to try the mastika mojito. They are also very conveniently located to all the main attractions - Within minutes walk to Plaka, Acropolis, Acropolis Museum and the bus tours have a stop about 10 minutes away if you're interested. Would definitely recommend.
