Our family of 2 adults and 3 children (11,10 & 8 years) stayed here for 5 nights in the heat of an Athens August and found the hotel very clean, comfortable and secure. Our family room was actually a suite, comprising 2 ensuite bedrooms (1 double and another double with an extra single bed) with a common entrance door off a short corridor. This gave us parents some privacy and yet the children were sleeping safely nearby. With the two bedroom doors open we were able to hear the children without difficulty. The rooms had comfy beds, good air-conditioning, and good en-suite showers.
The hotel breakfast was adequate. There was also a bakery nearby and in the evening there were a few tavernas in a nearby square which were full of locals.
One of the best aspects of this hotel was its location. Just 50 metres from the nearest metro station and only a few stops from Syntagma square, the Acropolis and other central attractions The airport journey is quite hassle free from this location. A real bonus was the free courtesy shuttle bus that leaves from near the hotel and takes you to a great water park called Copa Copana. The whole family enjoyed a very reasonably priced day there and had our holiday time allowed for it, we could have returned within 7 days for a another fun filled day free of charge.
Some people might feel a little challenged by aspects of the street life in the vicinity of the hotel. But you have to remember that you are in a big city where all the usual safety precautions should be observed. We were never around the streets beyond 23.30 and we never felt our safety, or our children's safety, threatened in any way. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to other families with young children as well.
