I chose the hotel because of the location, it is close to the X95 bus station, about 8-10 mins' walking. However, the room is too old and out-dated (I guess it has not been renovated for at least 15 or 20 years?), I hate to say this, but this is the oldest hotel I have ever stayed. The bathroom is so small that I can barely turn around (I'm a girl of small size). The air-conditioner is so noisy that I can not sleep well (very old model). The hotel really really needs update and renovation.
I am surprised why this hotel gets a high score in tripadviosr. Actually I have paid lower price for another much better hotel in Acropolis area, and chose Acropolis House for return trip just because we need to catch bus to x95.
If you only care about location and nothing else, chose this hotel. Otherwise think twice.
