Location excellant in central Athens. Our room was large, clean and comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised to find a small fridge in the room, good for a cool drink. The bathroom was small but no problem everything worked well. Unfortunately the safe had been left locked by a previous guest and the staff could not open it. We were given a key for a safe deposit box in reception so problem solved. We had no problem with the lift although very small and could be a problem if you had a lot of luggage. It takes 4 people but it is a tight fit. Two steps between reception and the lifts could be a problem as it is rather dark and care needs to be taken to avoid a fall. We found the breakfast OK except staff were slow to replenish the hot food when it ran out. Cold foods were good also the coffee but the fruit juice was watery.Staff were very helpful even carrying our luggage to the taxi rank and refusing a tip.
We would stay again when in Athens.
Please note: Take care if taking a taxi from the bus station etc. The driver we had tried the old trick of swapping our 50 euro note for a 10 saying we had not given him enough. We were aware of this trick, it does happen in Athens, and told the driver we live in Greece and knew what he was his intention. He then smiled and gave the correct change.
