I booked the O&B based on the reviews I read on TripAdvisor. They were right on.
The hotel is very conveniently located - we easily walk to most of the main tourist sites and the flea market. It was also close to a Metro stop, which I would recommend using rather than the taxis. It was close to several really good restaurants, but their food is good as well.
1. CLEAN! The staff was cleaning constantly. The rooms and common areas were very pleasant.
2. Bathrooms were huge by European standards.
3. Staff was wonderful. So friendly and professional. They actually helped us bring our bags out to our airport transportation and waved good bye to us.
4. Food was pretty good. Breakfast was what you would expect (eggs, bread, jams, yogurt, fruit) but we did eat there for dinner and it was really some of the better food we ate during our week in Athens.
1. DVD Sex Shop on the corner - although nothing 'happened' it was weird to have that be our landmark.
Notes - if you book their special that includes a ticket to several sites, they don't actually give you the tickets there, but will refund you the purchase price once you have bought the tickets.
