“Decent hotel, decent service, in the center of Athens”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

I liked everything about this hotel, the location is excellent just off Syntagma square, you have therefore access to all modes of transport, besides you can visit many interesting places on foot. Syntagma square itself is never dull.
Friendly and professional service by all members of the staff, willing and offering to go the extra mile to make the guests feel welcome, which makes the hotel a place to relax in, even if its right in the center of the city.
The breakfast is also very good, with a variety of hot and cold dishes and the excellent Greek style yoghurt.

Highly recommended !

This hotel was an excellent choice by my husband. The room was comfortable with a great bathroom. The buffet breakfast was delicious with lots of choices both hot and cold. The ambiance in the lobby and the breakfast room was dignified and luxurious. The hotel's location was great. We walked from Syntagma square metro station and had no trouble finding the hotel. The only problem we encountered was being pickpocketed as we left the train at Syntagma square - Wear a money belt. The pickpockets in Athens are magicians in how they use slight of hand to get into your front pocket without you even knowing!!

I have been visiting this hotel for decades, and it is finally looking quite good after refurbishment. Best part about it is the location, just yards from Metro stop and Syntagma square, and a short stroll to Plaka and Monastiraki. So hundreds of restaurant and bar options nearby, plus most tourist spots easily reachable by foot or metro. Room decent size and on the side road as I requested (quieter), and breakfast was fine. Very helpful reception staff, sorted out a 6 hour extension for me (and charged me but that is fair enough) as I had a late flight. Of course I will go there again.

Room Tip: Side street, high floor.

The hotel is located close to Syntagma Square from where you can transfer to and from the airport by metro.
It is also near to all the major tourist attractions and the Plaka district with its bars and restaurants.
We had booked a basic twin room which was ideal for our needs. It was very clean with a good sized bathroom. The room was however rather hot and we could not control the temperature at the room thermostat.
The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of hot and cold food.
All of the staff were very friendly and the man on reception explained where the computer was for us to print out our boarding passes for the return journey.
A superb view from the hotel rooftop of Athens.
Would certainly recommend this hotel.
Only grumble was the bar closed at 11.00pm prompt.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel have a balcony but there may be noise from the main road. We had a...

Stayed here for 3 nights, left on an overnight tour and returned again for one night and both stays were great. Staff extremely helpful and my request for room away from lift was followed through for both stays. Rooms were big, comfortable and had at bath too. Hairdryer also supplied. Breakfast was great choice...fresh fruit, greek yoghurt and cakes as well as european type breakfast foods. Staff at Cafe downstairs were friendly, efficient and helpful with tourist information. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from front as hotel on main street. Good view of Parthenon from 6th floor.

Room was large and comfortable overlooking the gardens, spotlessly clean and in good condition. We had one of the 7th floor rooms (deluxe) with a terrace which was great for drinks, sunbathing, or just sitting a cup of tea watching the world go past!
Bathroom recently refurbished, very good quality, although plumbing a bit dodgy (empty the sink and the water comes up through a drain in the floor!) but the hotel sent a cleaner up quickly to clear up (so suspect this might be a regular occurrence?)
The whole hotel appears to have been recently refurbished, and is excellent value for central Athens.
Breakfast a very diverse buffet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor.
