This is a modern hotel (went through a general refurbishing on 2007) where you will find excellent views of the Acropolis and Parthenon (west wing) or The Temple of the Olympian Zeus (east wing); located just 100 meters from the new Acropolis Museum and 500 meters from the archaeological site of the Parthenon (be careful because almost all the way to the Acropolis is upstairs). Plaka is within walking distance too, so it is a perfect option to explore Athens.
Breakfast is OK; pastries, bacon, eggs, toast, cereal, fruit and Greek yogurt; it is served in the roof terrace where again, all the views will be waiting for you.
Wi-Fi available only in the lobby or in your room with a cost of E 14.- per day. The rooms are not big, but the air conditioning works and the beds are comfortable.
If you want value in downtown Athens, this is your hotel.
