“Worth the Good Reviews”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

I have seen a few poor reviews for this hotel but they must come from travellers with little experience. This place is, as others say, great value for money and well-positioned. Good local restaurants are within easy reach. Most major sights are easily walkable. The metro is handy for further trips. The rooms are of a fair size, traditionally furnished, but with a good-sized bed and pleasant toilet/shower area. The rooms were well cleaned every day with fresh towels provided more often than most hotels. The reception team were very friendly, polite and helpful whenever approached. I am not so sure about the bar, which was loud and pricey in our only visit. Nevertheless, we had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend the hotel without reservations.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel was certainly peaceful. Room 202, if you need to know.

Great location and price, 5 minutes from Museum Acropolis, and close to metro. Very good value for money for a Capital city and a central location. Room was decent, with shower, overlooking a busy main road. Loved the little basement bar, cosy and atmospheric, staff were brilliant. A good find and would be happy to return.

This hotel is situated about a five minute walk from the Acropolis and easily reached from the airport by the excellent Athens metro. We were paying €55 for a double room and breakfast. The room was more than adequate for the price and there was also free wifi. Breakfasts were good, although I don't know why they don't keep the "hot" food warm especially as it is in the kind of containers which would allow for this!
One warning though: the hotel is on a VERY busy road, there is traffic all night; the rooms are not 100% soundproofed and sleeping with an open window would be impossible .I am someone who is not particularly sensitive to noise yet I was disturbed by it. There are three bedrooms at the back apparently so it would be an idea to try for one of those if you are worried about the noise.

I was in Athens few days ago so news are fresh.

About hotel - located in Singrou Street, not so far away from Acropolis.
Fastest way to get the hotel from ATH Airport is metro. You must go to Egaleo Line (only this line is on airport) and go to Syntagma Station. There you should change metro for Red Line and go 2 stations to Syngru Fix. Hotel is located about 200 m. from this stations. One way ticket cost 8EUR but for 2 persons are cheapest and cost 14EUR.

Hotel are small, there is only 20-30 rooms. I will start from the staff - they was very friendly. In my opinion Greeks are most freindly people that I ever meet.

Room was small but nice. I have got nr. 202 so it is room from inside site. From windows you can see some green plants and another buildings. From street site it can be little noisy I can guess. In the hotel it is elevator.
Bed was comfortable, possible also to get some baby cot if you travel with child.
Bathroom was also ok. It was not any bath tube, only shower.

As on the small hotel breakfast was very rich - few kinds of meat, some greeks specials, cheese, eggs and fresh orange juice.

Price for the hotel: 52EUR per night for double room. Fair deal !

In the end - what I didn't like:
* To small garbage box in the room,
* Not any market close in the area,
* Only Greeks TV channels ... but who came to Athens to watch TV :)

I recomend this hotel - good place for holiday in Athens.

this hotel is NOTHING like the pictures, it is dark ..dirty and dismal! It is on a VERY busy road and at a junction so the traffic noise all night is unbearable, the rooms are tiny, dont be fooled by the pictures online! The bathroom was small and very poor quality finish. We couldnt get a reception on the tv for the greek channels and there was no sat tv. The breakfast......oh dear, it is served in the dirty basement bar which only had about 3 tables so even if we had wanted to sit and eat we couldn't, the breakfast consisted of some cold fried eggs sitting in cold oil, some dried up cheese and some cold greasy fried potatoes, served from dirty containers on tables covered with grimy cloths...we went straight from the breakfast room, packed and left!!!!! The area the hotel is in seems to be abandoned at night apart from the 2 sex shops either side of the hotel there was nothing open so nowhere to have an evening meal, apart from walking back to the area around the acropolis where you could eat and get a drink if you were prepared to pay the prices...€6 for a bottle of Fix beer!!!!!! I WOULD NOT STAY THERE AGAIN!

Absolutely worth the money (which were very few indeed, as this hotel lowers the prices, if they have enough availability, which I find an excellent policy). The location is great. The hotel is so close to the center of Athens and on one of her main roads. Bus, tram and train station nearby. Extremely helpful staff. So welcoming hotel. Didn't want to leave! Great decoration at the room, which was fully renovated. Coco mat matrices. Will definitely go back there. Also has a bar on the basement.

I prefer to stay on the south side of the acropolis close to the museum. It's easy access to all the sites but away from the hordes. I stayed in this hotel just one night but was very impressed with it. I happened upon a great Internet rate so I thought I'd give it a shot. The bathroom, as usual in Europe, was fairly small but plenty big for my needs. The decor in the rooms was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. At first I was concerned because they didn't have any rooms off the busy street. However, once I closed the window, the noise was gone. It was amazing how noise proofed they are. I can't remember if my room had ac or not, as I was there in May and it was unusually cool and not needed. The breakfast buffet was good and the overall feel of the hotel was nice. I would definitely go back. In fact, I am bringing a group to Greece in September and I'm hoping to find that great rate again so that we can stay here.
