We stayed for 3 nights and overall was a very good one. A Melia is a guarantee of good hotels but some issues could have made it a better stay.
Location: 3 blocks away from Omonia station which i have to say, is not a nice place but it seemed safe during the day and evening. Perfect for coming and going to the airport by train which is a third cheaper than a cab.
Room: a big room with a nice bed and spacious bathroom. The tv was null but we didn't care but the wifi was terrible and almost non existing inside the room. We had to go to the elevator room or the lobby to get some wifi, a major issue for us.
Breakfast: various things but not worth €18 per person per day, a rip-off I would say.
The price was very cheap, only €99 a night with breakfast so really a €63 room. Kudos to the staff who gave us directions and help every time we needed it.
I would only come again if I don't find a hotel closer to a nicer place like Plaka, but for the price of €99 is a steal!!
