We stayed in this hotel for four nights in early April 2013. The hotel is in a superb location if you are visiting central Athens, very conveniently located close to the Plaka and the Acropolis and the main pedestrian walkway that connects many of the main tourist sites is just around the corner from the hotel. The whole of the city centre is within walking distance.
The hotel is clean, modern and the rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. The staff are great - friendly and English speaking (a great advantage). The rooftop bar and restaurant has small outside terraces on either side of the building and the most stunning views - perhaps one of the best views of the Acropolis from any hotel in Athens on one side, and great views of the Temple of Zeus from the other. The quality and choice for breakfast is excellent and the restaurant serves good food in the evenings. I could not fault the hotel and we found it an ideal stay - we would certainly stay there again!
The only comment I would make is that there is some traffic noise if you have a room on the east side, facing the Temple of Zeus - because there is a busy road on this side. It didn't disturb us because we are used to life in a city, but for those seeking total quiet it may be best to ask for a room on the 'back', west side - but you will lose any view unless you have a room on one of the top floors.
