I chose this hotel because I needed something not far from Syntagma just for one night. The description and the pictures looked nice, and they promised tea&coffee maker in each room - as I like to have my chamomile in the evening, it was decided.
On arrival I haven't found any kettle or anything for making tea in the room - and the reception girl told me they don't have it anymore! She even didn't excused. The room also doesn't look as nice as on the hotel photos. It's clean but very small and quite shabby. In some lusters there are no lamps, the safe-deposit box and fridge do not work, the balcony is dirty, there are even butts from previous clients... The view is awful.
The window goes on Kolokotroni street which is dubious and dirty. Be aware - it looks quite but there's a bar next door to the hotel - so you won't sleep till late at night. The room door also isn't sound-proofing at all.
The breakfast is very-very poor, nothing hot, even the eggs are cold.
There is a wi-fi in the hotel, sometimes it works, sometimes not.
So next time I'd better pay ten euro more but live is more pleasant surroundings.
