Arrived for one night stopover, travelling to Santorini on the 5.30am flight the next day.
Booked on line on the basis; it was 5 mins from airport; actual time 30mins, checked Tripadvisor for reviews - which seemed ok, booked through booking.com, based on pictures provided on booking website.
Front entrance clean, modern and welcoming - only to discover it was a facade.
Booked a triple room: got a double. Aircon. not working, balcony door lock broken, sink plug stuck down (couldn't drain water), toilet cistern broken (worked by pulling a wire cord attached through cistern lid), toilet roll holder broken, bathroom mouldy and dirty - tiles very poorly repaired. Overall room was very small (esp. With roll out bed added in), very dated and need of a complete gutting and revamp.
Good thing was sheets and towels were clean.
However, enjoyed a very relaxing evening at The Premier Cafe one block behind, where there are several places to chose to eat at: we feel this was Athens saving grace..
Gladly left at 4am for the airport.
Can see where the high rating comes from. Would definitely NOT recommend this place.
