We just wanted a comfortable, clean, and convenient place to sleep for a couple of nights while we spent a day in Athens en route to Santorini. The hotel was exactly that. The people at the front desk were friendly, warm, and funny, and the room was clean and comfortable, if not stylish, although the twin beds pushed together were disappointing since we wanted a double bed.
While several people have commented on the neighborhood, it was just fine though it looked run down in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. It felt perfectly safe, and within a couple of blocks around the hotel were coffee shops and places to eat. And of course it's a very short walk to the Acropolis, which was our main reason for stopping over in Athens.
All in all the Evripides Hotel was exactly what we were looking for, and we were very happy with our stay there.
