This is a wonderful little hotel in an awesome location for touring central Athens. Yes, you pay a premium for this type of access, but it allowed us to make the most of our time in the city without spending an excessive amount of time on the metro. We never set foot in a taxi either.
Since we were traveling with our son and his wife, we had reserved the Acropolis suite. The rooms were spacious, with a sleeper sofa in the living room, and an additional sleeper cot brought in. There is a lavish breakfast buffet that runs until 1130, which is very helpful as you accommodate to ‘Athens time’. The view of the acropolis was great, minus a few antennas in the way (but aren’t the daily cranes just as distracting?).
The neighborhood was certainly interesting and I would take this for what is was, a daily flea market that swells on the weekend, strolling onlookers, and the most graffiti I’ve seen in any city. With that being said, the location beat out of all of these distractions, especially since you could walk to the pedestrian areas in only a few minutes. Once you were tucked in your room, the solid double-paned windows kept out ALL of the street noise, something that is definitely appreciated, but very hard to find in a large city!
It was especially nice to be close to some of the other little areas off the beaten path of the Plaka, we would definitely prefer this location if staying in central Athens again. We have stayed in other top trip advisor hotels in the Plaka, but this hotel beat them all. We will return.
