“very good hotel in the heart of athens”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Excellent hotel in the heart of Athens.
In 4 days of staying we never needed to use public transport or taxi.
The best views in the town - breakfast room is on 9th floor with the view on Acropolis... brilliant.
Hotel staff is very friendly and always happy to help.
Will strongly recommend.

Room Tip: to avoid traffic noise try to book a room on higher floors and facing away from the main road.

This hotel was a good quality hotel for the price. The rooms were modern and very clean. The location was also well positioned a the base of the Acropolis. Our rooms had beautiful big balconies facing the Temple of Zues. The only negative, was the dinner menu at the restaurant was very limited & not really Greek Cuisine, that didn't really phase us, as there was heaps of restaurants close by. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Late review - we stayed there in September 2012 but this is a great hotel - very friendly and helpful staff - went out of their way to find things and information for us, great breakfast - we had their special pre-ordered dinner - great food and wonderful rooftop views and charming waiter. Close to the Acropolis good for walking around, would definitely stay there again and recommend it to all.

I spent 7 nights in this hotel with my parents in late December 2013. The rooms are functional with a balcony and really comfortable (4th floor rather quiet). Breakfast was plenty and the staff was very friendly. The location is the main reason for me to choose this hotel. All touristic sights are within 10-20min walk. I really appreciated that the receptionist (in the evening shift) helped me organizing an island trip on my own. Even though there was no free internet in the room there was free connection in the lobby and two computers and one printer were available for guests. The lobby was very welcoming and many guests were using this service. Overall a good modern comfortable hotel at a great location with very friendly staff.

Very friendly and ready to help you for any possible service or typical request, the hotel team fixed the heater, inidicated - certainly to any lost tourist- the best restaurant, where to go and taxi booking. We got an upgraded room with view to nice Zeus palace.
Room is large enough to have baby cot and a small desk to work. Very clean and charming.
The top view resto -for breakfast - is really nice with fresh food homemade.
A pleasure to stay here

Room Tip: Perfect for family
