“cute 2 stars hotel”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

The hotel itself is cute, the rooms are extremely simple, more like a motel, no warmth in the rooms at all...
The location is ugly, and according to all taxi drivers we took(lots of money on taxis...), the neighborhood is very dangerous at night, they all awared us ( girls) not to walk even a bit by ourselves at night...
The breakfast is poor, very low quality.
The roof top is nice, the swimming pool is cute, the views from the acropole is very beautiful.
The restaurant is nothing to be pround of, food is average minus, prices are reasonable, but if you have the option, dont stay stucked overthere.

We stayed here for 3 nights with a top deck group. The staff were so friendly and helpful and definitely the best thing about the hotel. The lady up on the top roof bar made great cocktails!!

Free wifi which is awesome & close to the metro.

The pool is more like a bath tub but the views of the acropolis are amazing! Breakfast is fantastic also!

Very nice Hotel Close to the main railway Station in Athens. Don't be afraid because the surrounding area doesn't look that nice - no worries. Hotel offers a Garage free of charge if you come by car (conveinient if you see the traffic) and is located Close to a Metro Station for easy transfer to all tourist places. Also the City bus trip providers stop close by.
The Hotel itself offers a very modern, clean and tidy stay. Our room was relatively big (estimated at 30 square meters) with a nice bathroom. Everything where it should be, fridge and safe as well available. Wifi is available free of Charge in the whole Hotel. Room offers air condition and noisy isolated windows.
Breakfast is provided in the lobby and offers local as well as international products (cold and warm) - no complaints at all.
One of the best things is the Roof terrace including pool (!) where you can relax in the evening and enjoy the view on the illuminated Acropolis and above the roofs of the City. On the roof terrace you can have as well dinner with some nice Food (burgers, Souvlaki,) - try the Vegetarian Club Sandwich - portions are big and Prices fair.
Only downside (small compared to the rest) - we tried to sleep with open window in the night, but next to the Hotel a bus Station for overland buses from Mazedonia or Albania is located - with buses sometimes arriving late in the night - thus sometimes noisy when 100 People exit two buses and are greated by friends and relatives. Will not at all be an issue in summer due to heat, air condition and isolated windows.
Highly recommended, will suggest this Hotel to anybody who wants to visit Athens.
Picture is made from the roof terrace with a tele-lens at night.

Room Tip: Recommend to ask for rooms higher up - the higher you are, the closer to the pool. Check as some Lev...

Very modern style, very friendly staff especially on the rooftop bar. Great view from the bar to see the acropolis and also the sunset. Free wifi is easy to access in the entire hotel. For breakfast you will find everyday different cake and sweets. Very good variety of all items.

It's in a bit of a crap area but near enough to main transport links. I don't know how it compares to other hotels in Athens but it wasn't as exciting as it looks on the internet. Unfortunately it was a bit cold for swimming but the bar upstairs had nobody in it and no atmosphere at all. The food wasn't bad but not very fresh so you don't really want to be eating there, rather go out.

Great hotel, modern, clean, spacious. Breakfast is the best iv had in any hotel. Rooftop pool is small and there aren't many sun loungers but if you're only in Athens a few days you should have much time to laze around a pool. Our room had a lovely view of the acropolis. Friendly staff, nice cafe type place next door. Not in the greatest part of town but its just a short walk or metro ride to get you into the centre.
