I'm posting this six years late as I've only just joined Trip Advisor! It might be a bit redundant given that there are more recent positive comments from other reviewers.
Anyway, my husband and I stayed here in April 2007 when we came to Athens on a city break, just before we got married. In my experience, it was a lovely hotel. Okay, the location looked a bit dodgy as the other reviewers say, but we didn't have any problems when my husband and I walked back after dinner late in the evenings. In fact, it was the ideal base to walk to some good restaurants and to take in the sites of the city.
The staff were fantastic - in particular, I recall a lady named "Maria". Once there was a minor problem with our room and they upgraded us to a larger, more beautiful room for free.
On our last night, the staff made us a fantastic Greek salad and even gave us some free Greek coffee to take home.
This is what service is all about.
I do hope that, despite the current political turbulence in Greece, this place survives. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone going to Athens. I recently stayed at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers in Dubai - it was awaful and I think that so-called plush hotels like that could learn a thing or two from small, friendly places the Art Hotel.
