“Location might b scary, but it's nice inside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

When we first started walking towards the hotel, I started saying "God Hugo (my hubby), is this the hotel u found? There was nothing else available?" Yes, the location is kinda scary, especially at night, but it's also in front of a fruit market, so you can buy fresh fruit every day!!! The receptionists were quite nice, and friendly. They serve free coffee, tea and biscuits all day. Very cute, and clean rooms, VERY comfortable bed!!! There is wi-fi, but the connection sucks... There is a terrace on the top, not the best one but still good... Breakfast is very good for omnivores, but as a vegan I had bread and tomato for three days (no complaints, but soy milk would be perfect, because they serve muesli). And it's very close to the downtown, almost 10 minutes walking.

Room Tip: 4th-5th-6th floor. Try the one away from the elevator, like 604-605

The hotel is across from the central market. We arrived in the evening, after the market was closed and the area was pretty dirty with leftovers from the vendors strewn and squashed on the road. The inside of the hotel was lovely, art deco. Each floor was a different colour, hallways and rooms. Very modern. The breakfast was ample, with plenty of choices. Walking to a neaby restaurant we had chosen for dinner , the streets were fairly deserted, and you felt wary in the surroundings. During the day, the streets were busy and you are close a main street taking you to the Monastiraki. It is also about 15 minutes to the Acropolis. The rooftop patio is very basic...a couple of tables and a small stall for a bar.

A quick stay in Athens but what a little find! Greeted by delightfully polite staff, this hotel was just such a refreshing find - spotlessly clean, modernised rooms and bathrooms, excellent breakfast and quiet!!! Close to a little square where you can get excellent Greek food and a 5 minute walk to Monastaraki Square - this place is a gem. A genuine find and a bargain.

Room Tip: Any will do, so quiet!

Great little hotel in the market area, across the street from fruit and vegetable vendors and around the corner from antique shops and discounted goods shops, At night when the metal security gates are up in the nearby stores, the graffiti is plainly visible and darn good. The location is close to Monastiraki which is full of life both day and well into the evening. There are streets there blocked to traffic here with plenty of little shops and restaurants. Many excellent tavernas on these side streets facing the ruins. The hotel is upgraded, modern and comfortable. Monastiraki is a metro station with trains going to the Acropolis, the New Acropolis Museum, and the airport. The hotel has an excellent breakfast and the staff is friendly and obliging. There is good art work throughout the hotel and a roof top patio that has a great view of the city and the acropolis. Really enjoyed our stay in this hotel

Room Tip: some rooms have an acropolis view

We stayed for 10 days in this hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. The location of the hotel is perfect. It's a walking distance to the city center, metro station and cultural sights. The rooms are small but everything you need is there. There's even a mini fridge, which is very convenient. The bathroom has a nice shower with good water pressure. And there is a breathtaking view from the roof top, with a bar, nice place to have a drink. The hotel is located in a street where a day fruit and vegetable market. This was very nice to see. In the evening, the market closed and is quieter in the street. We found the area / street of the hotel is absolutely not unsafe. In the 10 days we were there we never saw anything in the evening or experienced in the street or area.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to other people. Compliments for the staff. They are very friendly and helpful and can give good tips about the city and what to see and do.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The hotel was clean and I got a cheap deal because I booked 4 nights. The breakfast was really good, I loved the Greek yoghurt. I want to go back there! The location is really good, from the roof top you can see the Acropolis :) Just down the road you have heaps of markets and restaurants. At the end of the street is a nice little souvlaki shop where you can also get some cheap wine ;) The fruit and veg market out the front opens quite early though we didn't hear anything. The area seems a little ghetto but it appears that a lot of Athens is like that (a lot of graffiti everywhere) We enjoyed it anyway. The staff at the hotel were super friendly and helpful. This was an amazing hotel for the price and I would definitely stay there again!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher floors facing the Acropolis... you will be able to see it!
