Modern boutique style city centre hotel. Ignore the graffiti as you approach. It's everywhere in Athens.
Well appointed rooms with lots of attention to detail and nice designer touches.
We arranged for the hotel to organise us a taxi from the airport as we arrived at 10.30pm on a Saturday night and had read warning stories of rip-off taxis from the airport. 45 Euros well spent with plenty of useful advice from the driver on the one hour journey to the hotel.
Our room was at the back of the hotel. No great views but quiet enough despite the nearby Saturday night disco. Cold beers in the mini bar did not touch our sides after the long day of travelling. A well appointed, smallish, contemporary room with all the things you need and don't need, except luggage storage. Too often these days there's no provision for luggage.
Nice touches in the en-suite, great shower, fancy toiletries and embroidered towels. How nice to have the word HELLO greet you as you make yourself comfortable on the loo.
Great breakfast. Loads on offer at the buffet with waiters to bring your coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. If you are at O&B for breakfast on a Sunday morning you will benefit from the colourful entertainment of the street flea market outside. We could have watched the dodgy deals (black bags full of wallets and mobile phones) all day.
The location of O&B couldn't be better for exploring the Acropolis, Forum, shopping and city centre attractions. Good restaurant at the end of the street and across the main road. The metro is just a few minutes away and a E1.40 or 70c ticket will give you 90 minutes of travel.
We stayed just two nights before heading for the islands and I regret that I didn't book O&B for the return to Athens.
