We stayed here mid October. The hotel and rooms are nice. The rooftop pool is really nice and offers a panoramic view of the city. Free wifi in the lobby and the room, so that was definitely a bonus.

The breakfast buffet was so-so. The neighbourhood wasn't the best, but I didn't feel unsafe at any time, and it's located within easy walking distance to the subway.

Definitely a great hotel if you're looking to explore Athens.

Seems one of the best deals in Athens! Nice pool on the rooftop, small but good gym, clean, modern and new. All good, location maybe weakest point, but we came when the staff was on strike so they sent us to another hotel for 2 nights, the other hotel was bad (no pool, no gym, no wifi, separate beds, old and kind of dirty). The strike is not their fault, but hey, I paid for a nice hotel and actually stayed in a bad one, so this was managed badly.

A good hotel, but make surer don't go there when the staff is on strike :) so I give 4 stars instead of 5 and give bad grade on service

As expected from the Accor group and the French standards, no bad surprises, nice room&bathroom, clean, and very friendly staff too.. Great breakfast,and great swimming pool on the roof with a Wow view. and near to the tube and centrale train station and not far from the long distance bus station too.
I definitely recommend this hotel for everyone who is stopping by in Athens despite what some reviews stated about the area as dodgy or not safe ... comparing to what is dodgy in Paris and London it is a walk in the park.
