My wife and I stayed at this hotel in April 2013, we pick this place as it is in walking distance of all the places we wanted to visit during our stay in Athens.
The first night our room is a little bit disappointing and the safe was not working, we asked to change room and it happened the next day. The new room is almost like the previous room although roomier and newer, we are happy with that.
We enjoy the roof top restaurant, it has a super view to the Acropolis day and night, highly recommended to take great night pictures as the Acropolis is illuminated.
We took the breakfast at the hotel, the menu is quite dull for this kind of hotel, we did not have dinner there as there are tons of good restaurants in Plaka district at walking distance from the hotel.
Wifi is working fine, no problem seen, the wife was doing her "facebook" at the end of the day.
The staff at the hotel are very polite no problem there.
Overall, my wife and I found no negative things to say and we are recommending this hotel to our family for their next trip to Athens.
