“Just OK - adequate but nothing more”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

My daughter and I just returned from Athens and had booked 3 nights at this hotel. We arrived late to check in, nearly midnight after getting into the port and a rather long subway ride to this location and the individual on check in at that time was not very welcoming or helpful in any way. Room was clean, breakfast very basic, bathroom small but OK. It was easy to walk to shopping etc. and we felt safe enough and the price was very affordable but you get what you pay for. On line it appears that there is a nice roof top area to sit in but on arrival we were informed that it was only for guests who had booked a certain apartment on the upper level. Though I don't have anything else to compare it to as it was our first trip to Athens I would not book again at this hotel.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere.

The price was right for the location. Having spent time in many European hotels this one is at the top! Great location to see the historic sights as well as the Plaka and lots of eating choices as well as cafes! I will stay at

Hotel is right in the centre of Athens, 2 min walk from the Acropolis and the plaka, right across the street if you get with a bus or the tube to Syntagma. Safe and lively neighbourhood even for two young girls when you get home around midnight. Nice hotel and nice room (no view on the old town for us), clean, wi-fi working properly. Friendly staff. They speak good English and are very professional. Perfect for short stay and backpackers!

This is a decent hotel right in the middel of almost everything in Athens. Surprisingly, it is not noisy - my room had a view to the street but it was perfectly alright.

The rooms are small, the bathroom is even smaller. I had to squeeze myself under part of the shower in order to be able to close the door so that I could use the toilet. Someone who never ever used a toilet must have done the planning here. It sounds more weird than it is in reality. Room and bathroom were clean.

They have breakfast (self service) but don't expect too much: It is rather basic. However, there are plenty of Cafés around, some only a couple of steps away.

The location is good for tourists and business travellers alike. Unfortunately, the WLAN is rather unreliable - okay in the early morning when nobody else uses it, rather frequently breaking down later in the day. You will not like it if you need to get things done on the Internet in a certain timeframe.

Staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful, good English speakers.

The hotel has a great location, it near to the most touristic places of Athens. The people in the reception are kind and the facilities are modern. We stayed at a good room, with a nice balcony, but it had a too small bathroom and it was a bit noisy. Good breakfest.

The room was very clean and tidy every day , the staff was friendly and always with a smile . Especially the guy from the reception with the beard. The location of the hotel is also very convenient if you have staff to do down town as I was.
I would recommend it to any one and sure if I go again to Athens this hotel would in top of the list
