Good, affable staff. All is well. You can stay in the luggage.some distance away from the center. . Geras viešbutis, trūkumų nepastebėjome, gal vieta kiek toliau nuo centro. Mažoka daržovių su pusryčiais. Laikas 2014 liepos 15-18d.

Good location, 5-7 minutes from Metro Larissa. Food quality, very good. Prices very comfortable. Wifi works in rooms. Staff behavier very nice. For a budget conscious traveler this may be right for you. I would stay again if ever in Athens.

Stayed in a 4 person room. One of the beds was an extra bed that had dead springs. The real beds were OK. Room was very small and with 4 people staying it was cramped. Shady neighborhood. OK for a low budget traveller for a night or two.

We had booked this hotel due to it's location. Requested and booked a superior double room, but when we got to the room, there were two single beds. Nothing superior about it at all!!!! A quick trip back to reception resulted in being given the key to a room which had a double bed! Pros: close to shops. Free internet...

Spent two nights at the Balasca Hotel. Traveling as a family, husb, wife and two daughters 10 & 12 yrs. There are no frills, the beds are hard. The breakfast was fabulous, making for the start two great days in Athens. The breakfast also increases the value of the stay at the Balasca. Very close to the Metro (just around...

You get what you pay for, not a very nice hotel, in a dodge area. There was very bad smell of smoke in room. Perfect for tourist who just need place to sleep. Good location though and for the price you cant expect much more.

Stayed here on the middle of our contiki in July 2012, after staying in camping cabin huts for the 10 days before it was lovely to be back in a hotel that even had a hair dryer. Was in a wee bit of a shady looking area but I did find that to be quite deceiving as the hotel was...

This hotel is in a shady location, but the price is extremely reasonable and the room is comfortable enough. There was a naked man in an apartment across the street from the hotel and he was shining a green laser pointer into my room. After that, we stopped going out to the balcony & kept the blinds closed. In general,...
