This hotel is a short walk from Syntagma Square where the airport bus stops. The rooms were simple but clean. We took back room for quietness and the view is not attractive.

Walked to Acropolis and Agora from here. Lots of restaurants nearby. Breakfast was good. Highly recommend as an arrival hotel and short stop in Athens. very reasonable price.

Stayed April 2014

You know the location - close enough to walk to everything important in Athens. Inside the hotel is clean and comfortable; great front desk staff; very good (and generous) breakfast; good elevator; WiFi in lobby is fast; AND (best of all) the roof-top "garden" - you might have to ask for the key - provides a spectacular sunset view and the magnificent evening lighting of the Acropolis!

Only negative: our door did not close properly and because of that we inadvertently left it unlocked on our first day.

The hotel's location is excellent and allows you to go everywhere - to walk all over Athens, to see monuments, to choose restaurants among the several good restaurants there are in Athens, and to arrive from and go to the airport - easily! Staff is really nice and helpfull.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the Acropolis

The first impression you get about this hotel is its excellent location in syntagma square, just steps from the underground station and the bus to the airport so you don't care at all about transportation to anywhere in Athens from this hotel, it's also very near to plaka, monastiraki and the acropolis and you can go to all these places on foot, this location also has the advantage of having so many restaurants, bars and coffee shops so close so you don't care about a place to eat. But on the other hand it has got other disadvantages mainly in its rooms, from the first look you find that all the furniture in the room is obviously very out-dated and less than simple, the rooms are small and the bathroom is smaller with very poor facilities, unfortunately my room in the fifth floor was looking on the backyard of the hotel facing other buildings which hindered me from opening the windows as you would have no privacy at all if you do so, another problem in the room was the only one electric plug so you get frustrated if you would like to charge your laptop and mobile phone for instance at the same time, also I felt the walls were very thin as you hear every noise outside your room in the same floor. I have to say that breakfast was very good and tasty although the restaurant itself was rather small and one day it had strange water leaking from the ceiling that astonished everyone there but any way the staff there were nice and friendly with everyone trying to do their best.

The hotel was ok.
Plus: The 8th floor room has a very nice view with Acropolis which was amazing by nights. Very clean room, nice hotel people.
Minus: The breakfast got not so much variety, around 5-6 food kinds and in 10 days it got the same products every morning. But near there are a lot of fast foods or restaurants and a Starbucks Coffeshop. Nother minus was the parking places. But not a very important minus cos it is next to Monastiraky so no car needs to get a ride. The most important minus was the power supply electric wall mount sockets missing. It was just one for the tv. Even the refrigerator was unplugged. So you have to ask some multi electric socket wire or to buy some. too difficult to charge the phones and laptops if any, to shave electrically or to dry your hair.

Room Tip: Take a multi power socket wire cos you gonna need one
