Really nice hotel in a perfect location in Athens We barely needed to use public transport, we just walked everywhere. Despite all the graffiti in the area I really liked it. Lots of local shops, a great vibe and not too many tourists. We felt very safe.
Warm welcome from guy on reception, who even taught us some basic Greek at our request.
I should note that I emailed them 4 months ahead of our trip to ask if we could (if possible) have a view if the acropolis, but got no response. I tried again 2 weeks before we left the UK, but again no response. So sadly we didn't get our view, but we had the amazing roof terrace so it wasn't a huge loss!
Also, we had booked a double room and had twin beds pushed together. I asked if we could move to a double room but the nice friendly reception guy told us that the only room left wasn't as good, but at least he was very willing and not at least put out by our request.
Room was good. V clean. Lovely beds and shower. All you can ask for! We were never in there long enough to use the tv, but the wifi signal worked very well (rm 603).
Breakfast fairly standard and nothing to write home about, but did the job and again everyone friendly. Good coffee.
There was somewhere to leave our suitcases too for a late check out.
Would recommend and would stay here again- at the very least because everyone was so friendly and accommodating!
