“Very nice one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2010

I stayed for 6 days at this hotel with my husband and I can say the hotel was very neat, nice room,great bathroom,very helpful and friendly stuff,good breakfast and good location: easy to walk everywhere or if wanna use metro there is 5minutes to walk Victorias metrostation or about 10 minutes to Omonia. Not the safest area but we didint feel scared and also walked in a night time. I could stay at this hotel again.

Located in rougher part of town. Room adequate, good shower, great breakfast! Elevators very small, but adequate. Can take stairs for good exercise. Staff friendly and very helpful. Easy walk to metro, cabs are cheap. Appreciate that it was walking distance to magnificient Greek Orthodox church. We stayed on top floor.

Great hotel who gave us a free upgrade on arrival. Clean rooms, clean sheets. Had great views of Athens. Location was close to metro but not in the best part of town. In saying that though, not once did I feel unsafe at night. The staff were very helpful.

The roof top resturant/bar was the highlight. Stunning views of the Acropolis at night. Fantastic bar man who made us feel very welcomed and fantastic food. We went every night to this resturant.

Worth a visit, especially for the resturant.

Hotel was unable to provide a cot in a 3 bed room, luckily we brought our own travel cot and what do you know- there was plenty of space for it! Our bed broke while having sex so we got upgraded to a larger room. Really bad part of town with no decent food nearby, we wanted indian food but had to get a cab to some next place! Travel agent said it had a swimming pool but that was a lie. Breakfast finishes at 9.30am !! Would have been better if they could extend it by an hour, especially if you have kids who wake up late and you want to stay in until the heat subsides a bit - we woke up early just to have breakfast and would try and go back to sleep or wonder what to do with our time! The greeks overall are quite angry and rude. Wouldn't recommend this for families with young children.

Friendly staff. A decent, standard room. The location is in a bad part of downtown Athens. So bad that I barely felt comfortable by day and definitely not at night. Add to that, I was very disappointed that the rooftop restaurant was under construction, so I had NO view of the Acropolis (which was my reason for picking the hotel). I would not stay there again, ever.

While this hotel is used by tour groups, I think it is a little over rated and not as good as advertised. The halls and room decor are worn and dated and need to be updated.

Breakfast is OK and plentiful. The rooftop restaurant was very good and would recommend that one have a meal there as the view toward the Parthenon is very nice.

The neighborhood was not the greatest by my standards (but may be OK by locals). The metro is about 200 yards away and is an easy walk. The problem is Athens lets street vendors from other countries to set up their shoddy merchandice by the metro entrances and exits as well as in the tourist areas. Make sure you have a doorway nearby to step into if the police show up since they scatter to the wind and do not care who they knock over in their effort to get away.

There are a couple of restaurants near the metro but I did not try them.

Staff tries to be helpful.
