The rooms are small and simple (double beds consist of two singles pushed together) but contain a surprisingly nice bathroom, a mini-fridge and a small television. In our room, there was also a small balcony that looked out onto the street.
The staff were incredibly nice and helpful, always patient with us and ready to help. If you ask, they will recommend/book a very nice (and often not so touristy) restaurant.
The hotel is located in quite a touristy area, very near the Plaka and minutes away from the Acropolis, the new Acropolis museum, hadrians gate and countless other landmarks. This is both a downside and an upside. If you go in summer (as we did) the place is incredibly crowded and boiling hot. You can, however, see the Acropolis in all it's glory wherever you walk around the area.
A buffet breakfast is provided and is extremlely varied, if a little strange. Bacon, eggs, cereal, vine leaves, assortments of cakes and many other breakfast foods are offered.
We found the Airotel Parthenon to be extremley charming and very simple. I would not recommend it to those looking for a luxurious getaway, but I would recommend it to those looking for simple accomodation in a great location.
