My friend recommended this hotel to me. It seemed far from where I wanted to be when I looked on the map, but once we got there we realized it was a great location. It is literally 1-2 short blocks and a left turn to restaurants, shops, and the Acropolis.
I've watched one too many investigative journalism shows about dirty hotels so I've become very weary about hotel cleanliness. This hotel made me feel so comfortable. It was very clean (even for my standards) and new. The free breakfast was great too. Very convenient and pretty good variety and taste. Decent sized rooms and I liked that the hotel was more boutique sized. The staff was hit and miss...some were really nice and helpful while others were just barely average. Either way, great value and I would highly recommend it.
