“Nice hotel, fairly close to tourist attractions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Upon entering the lobby the whole place feels a bit girly with all the floral decoration on the walls and couches... yet it is inviting. The hotel is usually quiet as there are not too many rooms. It is not a super busy place to be honest - but that can only be good.
Front desk staff is usually helpful and friendly. There was only one lady who seemed to be rather annoyed and bored by her job.
The room I had booked was super big and comfortable with a huge bathroom. In fact I should say it was over-spacey for my purpose. Cleaning is done fairly well (not german precision though).
However my whole impression was that the hotel itself is a bit dated, could use a bit of redecoration or at least painting. Seemed a bit dead and worn. Definitely not a five star property.
Room service is very fast and delicious for a reasonable price. Always helpful as well.
The direct neighbourhood is not exactly charming. Lots of shops closed down or tacky. Located right next to two petrol stations (one beside, one opposite) is not the best place you can imagine.
However it is absolutely worth the price.
Breakfast is very "greek", terrible for my very european taste. I could hardly pick a few things, only their fresh orange juice is fantastic.
One of my best stays in Athens so far so would probably return if so...

The place is good enough, but not very charming for a a holiday stay in a place like Athens. Probably grat for business trip, but staying for holiday it is a kind of a cold place. Staff is friendly, breakfast is great.

A good place for Business trip as well as tourists. Five minutes walk from metro station. Friendly and competent staff. Room pretty roomy. Clean. Air condition works fairly well (sometimes even in April it is nice to have it). Big and tasty breakfast. Small minuses: fridge in the room not working and a track of mould in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Take the one in the back

By entering the hotel you are pleasantly surprised by the decor with the floral fabrics and the modern furniture in the lobby ,which decor changes your mood instantly .The staff is very discreet and really polite and very friendly.
The room is nice and clean but is not look like 5* star hotel room
The wifi it is free but it is super slow! and not very easy to use it! if u want to have fast internet you have to PAY
It is in the safe area of the city and very close to the metro lines as well as the Music Hall of Athens

Liked the idea that the reception doesn't look one. The personnel is very friendly. The rooms are clean and big. Liked that the breakfast area has big tables but the corner tables by the couch are not so comfy. The pale colors make you feel like home.
The elevator is very small! :(
Free wifi for one hour, better than most hotels in Athens.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are larger and better

It was a decent stay for the price we paid. It is about a 10 minute walk to the metro, which you can take to visit the Parthenon. The room was spacious and clean. There was free wi-fi. My favorite part was the breakfast..I always left the hotel super full.
