We arrived early and were very pleasantly surprised that our room would be ready in 1 Hour and when we returned were given an upgrade to an excellent Room with a large balcony overlooking the main square.Ideal for pre and after dinner refreshments.The hotel is exactly as it says in the brochure,boutique and stylish and we found all the staff very friendly and efficient.Breakfast was good as was a dinner we had on our first night.
The area opposite does have some problems with druggies etc but The Police cleared them off the second night.It did not affect our stay overmuch but be aware that Athens is not the safest of cities as all the locals kept telling us.
The open top buses stops opposite the hotel so worth getting the 2 day ticket.An easy way to see the city and all the tourist musts.
Overall a very good hotel with a bit of a difference and certainly better than some of the large anonymous 5 Star International hotels we have stayed in.
