“great value and location”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

the exarchia area in athens is fantastic for the streetlife and the bohemian lifestyle of the cafes and restaraunts. this hotel is smack bang in the centre of it! across from exarchia square where there is a myriad of coffee shops and restaraunts and just a short walk from omonia and buses to syntagma. the hotel is well appointed with clean and stylish rooms. there is a great variety of breakfast dishes and balcony overlooking the city if you are on a higher floor. i found the staff very freindly and helpful. sure to come back!!

Room Tip: higher floors have a better view

I stayed in this hotel for three nights in October. I was alone in the hotel as my friends were staying elsewhere. My room was a spacious double on the sixth floor, very comfortable and clean. The street noise was satisfactorily shut out by the balcony doors at night. I did not hear any noise inside the hotel at night.
Breakfast was fairly simple and may not satisfy everyone but for the price charged for the hotel I thought the value was excellent. I found the breakfast adequate for my needs.
I really liked the Exarchia Square area with the buzz around the Square in the evenings, and enjoyed the fact that it was not a tourist area. Meals in the local restaurants and cafes were great.

Room Tip: Rooms on an upper floor would have less street noise

Location on street with many cafe and small restaurants, near Omonia subway station. Every historical attractions and shopping streets are in walking distance. Hotel was clean, staff helpfull, rooms normally equipped (fridge, air condition, tv, wifi, balcony), in hotel 2 bars and nonstop fast food. My price was 99 EUR for 3 nights. You can hear traffic noise from the street and noise from the hotel corridor - through old door.

Clean all you need including free wifi and Internet access.
We found this hotel on the net 24hrs before we travelled, price amazing and included breakfast.
We parked outside the front door and had a warm helpful greeting from the manager.
Well it's in a tired area of Athens but the location for sight seeing makes up for that.
Satellite TV good AC,fridge hair dryer even slippers fresh towels each day.
We stayed on the 6 th floor no issue with noise until about 8 am when the Harleys left!
All in all great value great service we saw real Athens.

This hotel is ideal for travelers on budget. Rooms are tidy (our room and our friends') and toilet is clean. There is a balcony which gives you a view of the street, nearby hotels and even a small part of the Lykavittos hill. WiFi is free. The rooftop of this hotel is like a viewing deck and has a view of the Lykavittos hill. Location is close to plenty of cafes and restaurants (look for Rozania or Rosalia restaurant nearby - most locals dine here and price is not at tourist rate). Also, the hotel is close to National Archaeological Museum (5-minute walk I think), Omonia metro station (15-minute walk), Syntagma Square (10-minute walk). Monastiraki Flea market is just one metro station away from Omonia station and from Monastiraki, you can then climb up to the Acropolis hill. The highlight of our stay in this hotel of course is the hospitality, generosity and greatness of the owners George, his son Kostas and 1 guy (forgot his name).

Room Tip: Didnt experience too much noise in our room like other people say. We stayed at the 5th floor.

I just stayed one night, and had no complaints. The building is a bit old-fashioned looking, but the room was clean and everything worked well. Staff very helpful too. Location is good as it takes you away from touristy-Plaka and is close to bars, cafes, shops etc full of younger Greeks. Room had balcony overlooking the street, but no noise once window was closed.

Its not a bad location, its a pretty close walk from Syntagma Square. The problem is that it is located beside a Square where biker gangs like to hangout in until 1/2am. The hotel itself wasn't bad. It was very clean, the room was nice and the staff were very nice and helpful. The bathroom in the room was extremely small though. All in all, you get what you pay for.
