We have stayed at many Graduates and love them. This Graduate was not the same as others. It was dirty and the rooms smelled musty and moldy. The rooms do not have central air, rather window units that did not work. The restaurant and bar are not open and their was no breakfast offered either. The staff was nice and tried to accommodate us the best they could.

This hotel literally smells. The rooms smell like old musty/moldy basement. Woke up with a major sore throat from breathing in the stench. The air conditioner units in the windows are from the 70s. We switched rooms bc of the smell and the second room smelled. Our friends stayed in another room and their room smelled as well and their air didn't work. If I didn't book through Expedia, I would have asked for my money back and went somewhere else. The beds were comfy and towels plush. Mildew in the shower and the shower floor was slanted. DO NOT STAY HERE.

The room was clean and well decorated. Everything was in a retro style that made it fun. The bathroom and sheets were impeccably clean. The premises were perfectly kept and well maintained. Parking was easy. The hotel staff was super helpful and friendly. Walking distance to downtown. I will definitely stay here the next time I'm in Athens
