The hotel looks in need of renovation, however the room is clean and spacious. The one thing I wasn't able to make it work was the heater, but honestly most hotels in the Mediterranean do not have proper heating systems.. The breakfast offers a good variety of food and drinks. Pity the yogurt is not fresh..I expected to find some...

A great hotel, good amenities​, friendly staff, clean rooms and public areas. Although you are only 20 minutes walk from the Acropolis and similarly the old town, you have to walk along a very busy highway with fast moving traffic.

From walking in the hotel looks very nice. The room was clean but very outdated and could use some TLC. Food very expensive and was terrible, some staff was rude when asking simply questions. Not much of a choice of food, don't understand why the menu is the same in room service as well as the main restaurants.
