This is a great spot. I'll preface the review by saying that my girlfriend and I weren't expecting much, and are very easy going. Therefore if you are looking for a nice hotel maybe look elsewhere. This is a comfortable and adequate hotel...with a killer view.
Close enough to everything, but somewhat removed and thus quieter. 15 minutes from metro.
A basic kitchen is provided, but it's not easy to cook since the supplies arent the best and old.
AMAZING panoramic view of Athens including the Acropolis and Licovittus. Unconstructed 180 view from above Athens. I can only imagine sitting on the patio at night in the summer. The kitchen and patio are on the same level so you have dynamite views while cooking and eating.
Many coffee shops just down the street in many directions. Same goes for restaurants.
Amazing produce market opens at your doorstep every Saturday from 7 until 2. This is the best time to load up on fruits and veg.
a gym is located 2 minutes away. Very old, and basic, but for 8 euros, you can work out for 1 week. First time is free. It's open 10-10. The gym has likely not been upgraded since 1960.
Hotel backs on to a park and there are drug users around from time to time. One guy even spent the night in the alley below us talking to himself. In certain alley's people have been spotted shooting up heroin. So this is all rather distasteful, but my girlfriend and I have never felt in danger. I wouldn't want her walking around in the evening alone though.
The internet provided is a huge rip off. It costs 10 euros for 24 hours of service or 15 euros for 7 days worth.The catch is it must be used within 7 days. Sonic you only use half of it, you need to buy more. Also, it is sooooooo slow, that you'll likely want to pull your hair out. only one. Omputer can use the access code at the same time, solid often go to a coffee shop and. Use the wifi while my girlfriend was on the computer at home.
If you are in any way disabled and have issues with climbing hills or steep stairs, maybe reconsider. The hotel can be accessed by road, but it's on a hill so either you'll need to climb 30 feet of stairs or walk up a hilly road.
All in all I'd stay here again!
