Great little hotel close to Monastiraki, Syntagma, Ermou st (shopping strip) and the Plaka area of course, with views from a roof top terrace that are fantastic. The staff were very good especially because the first room that my parents were allocated was a bit small. Once we aired our concerns they told us they would relocate them to a larger room on the second night (as the hotel was full) which they did very promptly the next morning. The breakfast room is lovely and the food was very good and offered local specialties such as 'Halva and Bougatsa' which we loved, being of Greek origin. Dorina was a great host giving us a map and advising of some of the things we may like to do do whilst in Athens.
The lobby and lift are small but the hotel makes up for this with other features, like the most comfortable beds on our whole trip! The double glazing on the windows was great to keep out traffic noise. If you're expecting a large foyer with cafe and bar areas do not stay here, but I would be happy to recommend this to anyone looking for a good location, clean modern rooms, great breakfast and a breath taking view.
