This hotel is out of the way - still in Athens, but neither downtown nor surrounded by strip malls. The result is, you sacrifice convenient location for peace and quiet. The hotel is new and very "green." Lots of environmentally friendly touches -nice to see a hotel making this kind of effort. Decor is not the typical "cookie-cutter" look. Rooms and lobby have a fresh look.
The complimentary breakfast is excellent -huge selection. Lots of other perks, like a giant bowl of gourmet lollypops at the front desk.
Room layout was different -beautiful, yet a little awkward (but nothing that would prevent us from returning). Very clean and comfortable, but nowhere to put your "stuff." One hook in the bathroom, normal closet, but no dresser. Another problem was the unusual bathroom mirror. Lighting made shaving difficult.
Still, excellent value and a fun place. We will return.
