We spent two nights in mid-September, 2007. The public spaces in this hotel show lots of care and thought, and are really pleasant: there's an outdoor bar area with fountain and umbrellas, a clean attractive pool, and a nice lounge and restaurant area with a very appealing breakfast. The rooms are not quite up to the same standard -- they're smaller, with fewer amenities than one would hope for, but clean with comfortable beds. The biggest problem overall is that the hotel is close to a very noisy major thoroughfare, with constant traffic. It's also close to the beach, though, and right around the corner is a tram stop to get to central Athens (which takes about 45 minutes, but is very inexpensive and pleasant). Not far from the hotel is a mid- to upscale shopping area with lots of international chains (from MacDonalds to Hagen Dasz!). If you walk the other direction for 20 minutes along the beach, there are tavernas and beach restaurants of various classes.
The staff -- in particular the English desk associate, Michael -- were forthcoming and helpful, with good suggestions. We had to leave a day early, and they were flexible and reasonable about cancellation, too.
If you want a pleasant and helpful place on the outskirts of Athens with good public transportation, you'll be satisfied here.
