We booked this hotel through expedia with a very reasonable price. But the hotel didn't give the complimentary breakfast mentioned in the website which was the main reason for the average score we gave it.(Even though we kind of want to give it a 4 but without breakfast it was a 3) Other than that, the room the gave us was spacious and clean with a fridge and updated amenities. Location is very convenient, you can walk to many attractions such as Acropolis, Roma and Ancient Agora and Temple of Olympian Zeus...etc. Bus from and to the airport is only couple blocks away right next to a Citibank that we used our ATM to get local money easily. Only two very small elevators which at most fit 3-4 people only in the hotel. Internet was free and speed was very good.

Room Tip: Make sure if the breakfast was included and bring the document with you, they didn't give it to...

Stayed here over NewYear for 5 nights. We had the suite, which has wonderful views of the Parthenon and a fantastic roof terrace which would have been terrific had it not rained every day of our stay.
Location couldn't have been better and the guys on the front desk were marvellous. Nothing too much trouble for them and always friendly.
Would return here without hesitation.

This is an average hotel, rooms a very small but you can manage, bathrooms are extremely small even for Europe standards. The beds are pretty good and comfortable which is appreciated after a busy day out and about in Athens. The locations is great for this hotel, is right in the center of Athens, a couple of blocks from the parliament and where the hop on hop off tours stops if you like doing that type of tours which I totally recommend. In general is a good hotel to keep a good budget.

Just got back from a 3 night stay here and i have rated this hotel as Excellent. Yes, as previous posters have mentioned, one of the staff on reception wasn't overly friendly (they werent unfriendly at all just barely said hello etc) but i didnt come here for the receptionists.

Location of the hotel is perfect, easy walking distance to all the ancient sites, Syntagma square (1 min away) for access to buses and metro for access to/from the Airport and bus to Cape Sounion (I can really recommend this, no need to book with a tour company at all), restaurants and cafes and shopping.

The room was pretty much spotless, the only gripe i had was the size of the bathroom (not sure if this was unique to my twin room?). If you were a large person, I am seriously not sure you would actually fit in the shower, or be able to use the toilet. This was only a minor inconvenience for me though.

In summary, the key things from a hotel for me are location, cleanliness and price. This hotel delivers on all of these. Definitely recommended by me (particularly if you can also get a rate of €37 a night incl all taxes and breakfast which i thought was an absolute bargain)

The hotel is perfectly situated in Plaka close to restaurants, bars, minimarkets, sights, transportation. It was clean and quiet. Breakfast was rather average, no fresh fruits, no variety but nice wholemeal bread.
Very disappointing was however the check-in and check-out with the woman on duty. She didn't greet us, there was no eye contact, no smile, nothing. Her very cold behavior shocked us. Other staff were friendly though.
