Four persons in one small room (familyroom???). Old hotel that really need a total facelift. Had to wait about half an hour for the room even it was ordered long time ago. Rooms in a bad shape, and cleaning was not too good. Lucky we stayed only for one night. Staff did not speak good english either, but they where...

I had a few days in Athens, and I stayed in this hotel, in the beginning I was shocked it's very old, 30% clean, the neighborhood was good a lot of cheap good restaurants, but take care of your things if you are moving in the night.

We stayed for five days; the hotel is clearly past its prime, sadly Athens is in a poor way financially so area the hotel is in (once prosperous) is now not the greatest. It's 30 minutes walk to the main attractions and although we felt safe some of the walk is through abandoned areas. Signs of the hotels former glory...

The room was with carpet and it was all dirty and the rooms smells awful. It is not a good choice because it is not even in the center. Breakfast normal. I do not recommend. Room is suffocating and so old and bathroom is sooo small!!

The location was terrible, close to city center but very dangerous place to walk. The surrounding of the hotel was unclear and with a lot of migrants and beggers. The rooms were with specicfic odor and not clean. the breakfast was only eggs, butter, bread and some meat.

We were handed a twin bed room rather than a double (which was booked). The hotel failed to apologise for this, despite it being contested. We finally managed to coerce a double bed room key out of the unhelpful gentleman behind the reception, who thought it an inconvenience on his part. Paper maps were charged at 2 euros and none...

Three friends and I booked here, arriving late in the evening on the 27th June, where we were informed that the hotel could not give us the rooms that we had booked as they over-advertise the number of double rooms available on websites. We were therefore given rooms with 2 singles beds instead, which were not pleased about given we...

This is a budget hotel, If one can afford a few more pounds, then stay somewhere else, The hotel is very old, not in a nice area, quite dangerous to go out, nothing nice in the area. The staff are rude and not at all helpful. I would only recommend this hotel for people leaving there luggage here and sightseeing...

“The rooms that they are in the front side view at street, they are a bit noisy because of street below. I think that you should avoid them, if you have problem with noise.”
