“Great location, but very noisy and small rooms”
Reviewed May 8, 2011

For this hotel, I would recommend to people with no children and if you are going to have a nightlife trip. But if you have children with you I would look somewhere else. Very noisy during the night (no matter which day of the week). But very close to everything and the staff great, very friendly and helpful. We ordered big room for four and got extremly small room with two separated bedrooms and very small bathroom. Very expensive city, BEVARE OF THE TAXI DRIVERS.

This is a pretty nice hotel- completely serviceable and in a hip part of town. Its not luxury but I didn't really want to spend a whole lot of time there anyway. I would not call it quiet, but again I was out late. Good value for the money, I would stay here again.

I am told this neighborhood used to be really bad, but now it looked fine to me.

The hotel was a good value but was more shabby than I expected. I valued the location as poor, though it was fairly centrally located. The area around the hotel is fairly gritty, especially for a family with younger children, while the street noise was also bothersome.

The staff were very helpful, with the clerk moving his motorcycle to help save a parking space for us to load up our car when leaving. We appreciated their helpful attitude.

The hotel could use a modest update of paint, and some attention, particularly in the bathroom. It was not a horrible experience, but we were very ready to leave after our two nights!

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is basic but it is clean and comfortable. It is in the heart of the Exarchion area which is a lively area with lots of cafes, restaurants, and bars, due to the large student population. It is about a 10-15 min walk from Omonia Square (metro). The continental breakfast was fine and the rooms have Wifi access. Overall it’s quite good value for money.

One of the friendliest, cleanest hotels, with the most helpful staff, that you could ever hope to find! Inexpensive, yet has those small (and up-to-date) extras which make your stay easier. Roomy and with excellent view, nothing was too much trouble for the knowledgeable and very helpful staff and they can also help you organise sightseeing trips.

They gave useful advice on local transportation and where best to eat - even though the "Orange Submarine" sandwich/pizza bar affiliated to the hotel has some of the best pizzas and sandwiches ever eaten.

This recently refurbished hotel is situated in one of the liveliest and most colourful areas of the city, one with a "buzz". Metro station not far away and taxi's easily available. A pleasure to have stayed there and definitely plan to return - and soon.

Would recommend very very highly indeed.

The location is ok (far away enough from Omonia) but it lies just next to several pubs and right in front of an occupied house (theater classes, trumpet, drum and bass practice and who knows what else). So it can get really noisy. The "renovation" of the hotel consisted on new paint. Doors, walls, pipes, elevator... same old stuff. Our window did not even close, and provided very bad noise isolation. Very small bathroom, shower curtain clinging to our skins. We had a much better breakfast at another cheaper pension nearer to Omonia. This is a 7 floor bulding that has a 10-table breakfast room. Instant coffee, watered down orange (?) juice.
