We stayed at the Acropolis view room and it was quite spectacular. We were on the 1st floor so there was no issue of noise from the bar on the top floor. But we did feel that if we were on 4th or 5th floor, then it would have been just impossible to sleep. Luckily we got a great room.
The metro station - Monistriaki- is just 10 steps away. So if you are taking a taking flight - you can just hop on to the metro and you get there in 45 mins. The flee market and a lot of nice restaurants are just around the corner.
The bar on the top is excellent. We booked a corner table on the top floor and it was just mind blowing. The cocktails are nice. Must try!!! Service was prompt and good.
We called and booked directly with the hotel and got a 10 Euro discount on the price mentioned on Booking.com.
The lift is small and fits only 3 at a time. Which is a pain. But as we were on the 1st floor, we just took the stairs. But you do have priority to take the lift in case there is a queue.
