We just stayed at this hotel for 1 night as we were passing through Athens on our way to Crete. Taxis from the airport run at a flat rate of 35 Euros to the center of the city. Easy enough to find, and we arrived to a nice welcome. The staff were so nice and helpful. Just around the corner of the hotel there is a bakery where you can get all sorts of sweets like donuts or walnut cakes.
We liked how quiet it was, situated in a residential neighborhood full of vibrant cafes, we wandered about 10 minutes away (after the front desk gave us a map and kindly showed us where to go) and found many restaurants to choose from, we had the most delicious meal I've had all year at the Taverna Pozania- I'm a Chef & picky and I literally felt my head spinning at the deliciousness of it all.
The rooftop has nice views of the city, peaceful and a good place to enjoy a coffee. The room was clean and the internet worked well in the room.
The only thing we would change was the double beds, but maybe that was our mistake as we could have possibly asked for 1 big bed but it was only one night so we didn't mind too much. Fresh cold water jug in the refrigerator of the room was a nice welcome.
Also our shower handle was broken which made washing ourselves tricky but we only noticed it late at night so we didn't want to bother the staff with it at that hour. Overall we loved this hotel, the price was right and when we return to Athens we will be staying here. Highly recommended.
