I stayed here twice, on either end of a month long stay in Greece. And both times I had no complaints about the hotel. Yes, it is simple and not luxury, but I always found it clean and accommodating. The front staff were very nice, and on more than one occasion I had the elevator door opened for me by someone working there.
The rooms are small, but with plenty of space to move and open doors, not cramped at all. The beds were comfortable and warm. In fact the air conditioner worked quite well both times I was there, and I was never too hot or too cold. There is a shortage of plug sockets that are available, I only had one in the bathroom and one in the bedroom, and that required unplugging the fridge.
The complimentary breakfast was much appreciated and a convenient way to start the day rather than going out to find food. There is also a cafe next door and adjoining the hotel, so if you want anything else, or want something later in the day it's close and affordable. I found it very convenient for quick breaks at the hotel midday.
The location is great! Right next to the metro line, easy walking distance to tons of shopping and historic sites. It's also within walking distance of the Acropolis, in the area of several great restaurants, and located in the central of the city. I walked to everything I wanted to see while there.
This place is clean, simple and affordable, plus with a location you can't beat. I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Athens.
