“Excellent location, nice hotel”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It was an easy walk to the Acropolis Museum and nearby sites, as well as convenient to the Metro station. This is a highly recommended home base for exploring Athens, and was priced very reasonably.

Stayed there four / five times before. Hotel is less than five minutes walk from Plaka and Acropolis Museum and Metro station, has pleasant well furnished rooms and friendly staff. This visit was somewhat strange in that the the buffet breakfast was rather odd. The heated cabinets for eggs, sausages, beans etc.were not heated and acted like cold radiators, but the staff religiously brought out hot eggs etc., took them off the hot plates from the kitchen and then placed them in the cold cabinets - how weird is that?

Having said that it is a good hotel and well worth the the money.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front on upper floors have Acropolis view. Rooms at the back are generally smaller and...

I definitely enjoyed my stay there, you are within walking distance from everything there is to see in Athens. The room was comfortable, the hotel is nice and clean, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Overall it is a great base to explore Athens from, you are 5-10 minutes walk from acropolis museum, acropolis, the plaka and only a few minutes walk from metro station and bus stops that connect you everywhere.
Very pleasant experience for a very good price. Will go there again for sure.

The hotel is close to metro station Sygrou Fix. The area around the hotel has a few restaurants which are mostly for locals so the prices are smaller and the food is good (try Ambrosia, next to metro station). The stuff is friendly and they have a good English. The price is good for what you get. Good TV channels. Nice arranged lobby.

Our room was facing the main boulevard and because of this is was very noisy. So we had noise from outside but also from the inside of the hotel because the phonic isolation is very bad. The room was a bit cold (end of November) but we were able to fix that because the room had an air condition machine. The breakfast is decent, the same food every day and not very diversified. No coffee/tea facilities in the room. No free Internet in the room.

Room Tip: Don't go for a room on the same side with the boulevard! It is very noisy!

It's a fine hotel in the heart of Athens, just a few minutes on foot from Plaka (old town of Athens) and few more from Syntagma, Thiseio, Monastiraki. Nice place, tasty and rich breakfast! Totaly recommended!

Let me start by saying that the room itself was comfortable and very well appointed. The only area of the room that I did not like was the bathroom. It was very narrow and the door when opened hit the WC. Also because the bathroom was so small, the hair dryer was kept under the work desk.
Now, for the positives and there are several.
1.The staff ( Rania gets a special mention) is fantastic. Right from recommendations to general information of the city, they go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable
2. The location is just perfect. Hardly 10 mins away from the Acropolis Museum and Acropolis. Also a good 20 mins walk from Plaka and other attractions.
4. Good breakfast served by a polite staff.
5. Free internet access and computers for guests in the lobby.
Overall, we enjoyed our 5 days here. We found Athens to be a fun and friendly city. Everyone we met or came across were helpful and really kind.
Can't wait to head back.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of October 2012. Upon arrival the receptionist advised that our room had been cancelled by our travel agent. We confirmed that we changed from 3 nights to 2 nights. The receptionist was very friendly and provided us a room whilst they looked into it, and called within 5 minutes to confirm all was in order. The room was on the small side but contained all the basics required for our stay. We didn’t spend much time in the room as we were out all day. An Excellent location base as the hotel is located a few blocks from a main intersection that takes you to the museum and acropolis in one direction, temple of Zeus in another or the plaka area in another. The breakfast was basic but enough to satisfy.
