Hotel was located in an excellent location just a few minutes walk from Acropolis metro; however we referred to Google maps which had pinned it wrongly and we spent an hour looking for it instead.
Other than the small mishap, the hotel was clean, modern and had nice art pieces in the lobby. No free wifi in the room which is uncommon these days but was available in the lobby and rooftop (hard to detect though). Service was generally good so no complaints on that. Another reason for choosing this hotel is the view, the view, the view. Breakfast at the roof top allows you to see the Acropolis in the day, drinks at night allows you to see the splendour of the Acropolis at night.
Only small complaint was the small old-school lift which could only fit 4 people.
