A very nice 4 star hotel in a great part of town (one block from the new Acropolis Archaeological Museum). Room was tiny however. Fine if there's just one of you but challenging for two adults. Requested an Acropolis view during both of my stays and was denied. Room does have wall safe, coffeemaker, lots of towels, hangers and minimal free toiletries. My view was of a drab courtyard. Major peeve - why are they charging to use the hotel WiFi - which functions very erratically? Every sidewalk cafe in Athens has FREE WiFi - this is a major ripoff. Also, hotel has ONE elevator. Very tiny elevator. Not advisable for claustrophobics. Overall, staff is very friendly and eager to accomodate, views from the roof are stunning, lobby bar is very agreeable and the excellent Acropolis Museum, Plaka district and Subway stop are just down the street.
