Fantastic starting point for sightseeing in the city. The area of Acropolis, leading to Plaka and further down to Monastiraki is spectacular (approximately 15 min walk). Acropolis metro station is only a few minutes away, the Acropolis museum is right behind the station. Many cafe-bars and restaurants in the area, lovely atmosphere.
Elaia "meze" restaurant with live Greek music in Plaka should not be missed!!!
Hotel is very warm decorated, staff always helpful and smiling. We booked the junior suite with Acropolis view. Room was adequate in size for 3 people, one double bed and one sofa bed.
Sadly though, the restaurant on the top floor was closed, they still had the menu outside the hotel and a stand with opening hours in the lobby. :/ Since the restaurant was one of the reasons we chose this hotel, not being able to use it was a bit disappointing.
Breakfast buffet was very nice, several bread choices, turkey / salami / cheese, yogurt / honey / serials / muesli / chocolate croissants / apple pie / sweet cakes and much more!
Overall we had a great stay!
