Good experience: close to Metro and train station, making access to taxis and the rest of the city easy; roof bar (drinks are not cheap); view is tremendous from the roof cafe/pool area; cafe around the corner to the left is pretty good.
Unexpected experience: air conditioning, even on high speed, is not really cool, and there is no thermostat; have to use room key to enable power in the room; free breakfast is European and not what you're used to at Waffle House or any American hotel chain; staff has trouble with English--be prepared to be misunderstood; beds are nothing more than box springs--no sleep number beds here--your back will be sore when you get up in the morning; internet connectivity in their internet cafe is sketchy, hard to remain connected, difficult to use; not in the best part of town; abundance of tourists in groups using the hotel.
If you are in Athens for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, spend the extra money and find a hotel with more stars and better beds.
