We stayed in a double room with a view to Acropolis and remained very glad with our choice. We had a sunny balcon-terrase with a view to Acropolis, where we enjoyed our meals and sunshine a couple of times! The hotel is located on top of the hill and is nicely isolated from the main street noise, it's close to Archeological museum and to a lovely restaurant area near by with good choice of restaurants, there is a supermarket nearby, bread shop, shop for fresh fruits and other practical things (mobile phone cards). Every Saturday there is an open street market near the hotel where local farmers bring their fresh products - yammi! The hotel is a bit away from the downtown with Acropolis and the main sightseeings around it, but we didn't feel any inconvenience - the taxi was just 5 euros for a 10-minute ride from the hotel to the downtown. Besides we really enjoyed walking and discovering the city. The owner and his family are very nice and helpful people, we extended our stay without warning ahead twice, once just left the city and dropped the email asking if we could stay longer (had no time to do it otherwise), got back only in the evening and had no any difficulties - all was smooth and sound, that's worth mentioning here! Besides, the hotel didn't charge us for canceling our reservation the second time at the last moment - originally we planned to return to Athens but stayed on the island till the end of our journey! I heard that the breakfast was good, but we were always late for it. Would recommend you to ask the hotel for help with taxi - we met some taxi drivers that cheated on us and charged more than we should have paid. Hotel owner has at least one reliable taxi-driver, Pannau, who drove us from-to the airport and was very helpful on recommending what to see and where to go.
