We read the reviews on tripadvisor before booking which almost all said nice hotel, dodgy neighborhood. This is very accurate.
The hotel was very modern with a good deal of amenities, it is clearly well maintained, is clean and is extraordinarily good value really for a hotel in Athens. It is not central but is very close to an underground stop and the underground is very easy to use.
On the negative side, the man on the front desk was constantly on the phone and it was difficult to get much help out of him, the bed was rock hard and the shower was average in terms of how it inevitably flooded the bathroom due to its poor design.
On a practical note I would recommend getting a taxi from the airport, it could be difficult to find and you don't want to be lugging your bags around what is a pretty average neighborhood.
