The hotel was very clean and in an excellent location - not a classy area but we never felt uncomfortable or threatened even when returning to the hotel late at night. It was literally only a few minutes walk from the Metro and thus gave easy, quick and cheap access to all the major attractions. The room was a bit small with rather limited storage but warm, clean, quiet and obviously only recently decorated. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice of dishes. The best thing about the hotel was the staff who were all absolutely charming and very helpful. The receptionist who we saw when we first arrived went to a lot of trouble to find out how we liked to spend our time and mapped out a really helpful itinerary for our 1st evening complete with details of which area to explore and where to get on and off the Metro. Her colleague the next day was equally helpful in finding us the best deal for a sightseeing bus tour of the city.
If we were in Athens again we would certainly be happy to use this hotel again
