This trip I searched for a change of scene for my 4th Athens visit this year but found no hotel that did not suffer from at least one critical shortfall (overheated rooms, poor wifi, no garage, rude staff or, in the case of the near faultless Grande Bretagne, out-of-budget prices...) so back to the Fresh. Happy. It is striking that after all these years the same staff retain such enthusiasm - all of them. We are now very used to the area which although not the smartest is really not dangerous. We walked happily down to Monastiraki for a kebab in 5 minutes and into Psirri for good home-style cooking in about 3 - no discomfort of any sort. Good choice of snacks and main courses in the rooftop bar/restaurant. Garage beneath the hotel. Fast wifi throughout. Only minor gripe (did I mention it last time?) is that frieds eggs, bacon, sausages, omelette tend to be cold and chewy by the time you get to them at breakfast - but there is plenty of other lovely stuff to choose from (cheeses, cold meats, yoghurts, honey, pastries, toast, fruit, fresh juice......). Oh yes, and there was the upgrade - thank you, thank you, thank you. But even without that very, very good value.
