We moved to this hotel from another hotel in the area. Before making the switch, we asked the hotel staff if they had availability. They said that they did, and that they'd give us a discount. We found out later that the discount price (100E) appeared to be the standard price for the room. It didn't include breakfast, but we saw in other reviews that the 100E price appeared to include breakfast. Either way, it didn't matter as we had to leave at 2:30AM for a flight.
They had nice free wireless internet and a computer to use. The rooftop deck was also nice wtih good Acropolis views. Our room was modern and attractive.
I would not recommend walking to this hotel from Athinias street; all the side roads between Athinias and the hotel are literally covered w/ graffiti, and almost all the stores appear to be permanently closed. I would recommend walking to the hotel from, I believe, Ermou street, you walk through the Psirri area and some nice restaurants.
The hotel got us a cab to the airport and was diligent about ensuring that we were up in time via a couple wake-up calls for our 2:30AM cab.
From looking at the website, it appears that breakfast is supposed to be included; I figure that it was a language issue that the hotel staff said that it wasn't included when we asked about it.
