Since 1992 every time I visit Athens I stay at this hotel, either alone or with my family. In the year 2001 they made a total restoration. It has 20 floors and is one of the very few skyscrapers of Athens. Its location is very good, as you can go there from the airport with the subway (METRO) and the metro station is a less than 10 minutes walk. Also the bus stop from the express bus line (X 95) from the airport to Syntagma Square is a less than 10 minutes walk. Near the hotel in Alexandras Avenue you can find a lot of good restaurants, bars etc. Also a variety of shops is around the hotel and a large CARREFOUR Super Market is a 5 minutes walk away. The area of the hotel is safe and you are not going to have bad feelings even late in the night. I had a a single room with a nice twin bed on the 15th floor. It was located beside the escape stairs, at the back of the hotel, so it was very quiet. If you get rooms in the front of the hotel, on Kifissias Avenue, they have a lot of noise from the street, so you better ask for rooms on the high floors. I didn 't have the best view from my room, as other rooms have breathtaking views to the sea, the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill, but it didn 't bother me, as I was on a business trip. The bathroom was big. Everything was very clean. The sheets and pillows were new with the mark of the hotel. The rooms have no central heating, but an independent air-condition. Although it was January, I didn 't need to use it. The reception was refurnished and the staff there was polite and helpful and the service was fast. There is a breakfast buffet in the basement. You can find a lot of things to eat and keep you strong for a day! It 's not the best breakfast you can find, but it 's OK enough. On the roof there is a bar and an open-air swimming pool in the summer with astonishing views. If you want to visit Athens and be in a central location in a not expensive hotel, this 4 star hotel is top value and in a place where you can go everywhere. At its point you are not going to face problems with demonstrations and all this stuff which are usual in Athens the late years. I suggest it absolutely!
