Although the area is a little shady, the location next to the National Archeological Museum is fantastic. We came for the Athens Marathon - staff were incredibly helpful - a very early breakfast was organised - we were also allowed to keep our room until 5pm with no extra charge. Staff were friendly and understanding. Breakfast was satisfactory although not ahuge choice. Very strange orange juice which I think someone has commented on before. Excellent choice of restaurants just around the corner - would recomment but use yoru common sense when walking around late at night - feels 'edgy'.
