We were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff, their location, and the bountious breakfast. We would highly recommend this hotel! We had a view of the Acropolis and we were next to the Agora and the Temple of Hephaestus. Good meals were nearby too.

The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating; they helped us several times with recommendations around town and with transportation. We really enjoyed the fresh breakfast buffet and coffee. Very convenient location, just a 10-15 minute walk to the Acropolis, with nice views. The downside was that our rooms were not renovated; the carpet and bed coverings were very old and...

Stayed 2 nights in room on lower floor without windows. Room was clean, but very small, adequate for only 1 person. Was somewhat noisy at night with staff moving around and other guests using lower level restrooms. Location to street market and sights was very convenient with great views from the outside, esp. at night.

Chose the place on location and price but was pleasantly surprised. Our room on the second floor was nicely renovated, the staff and coffee shop delightful but it's the location, opposite a park on a pedestrian mall and within walking distance of the Acropolis that make this place stand out value. Have read some poor reviews of the place but...

Stayed for 3 nights in late August. Hotel staff were nice, location was excellent. Room was a tad small, bathroom pretty clean, bed was good. It is right on a busy street, so it is fairly noisy as entertainment goes to the early hours of the morning. But for the spot it's in you have to expect that. Breakfast was...

Stayed here 3 nights and found it to be a good choice for Athens. It's within easy walking distance to all the biggies (acropolis, etc.), is on a pedestrian walkway, and is updated and clean. Reception was always helpful when we had questions and while the rooms weren't gigantic, they were of comfortable size. Our street facing room had a...

They let us check in almost 5 hours early! Which is amazing. The staff was wonderful, the food was good, the location was perfect! (Taxi drivers often got confused, but even so). Definitely recommended.

I was very satisfied by this clean and renovated hotel, right along the pedestrian road that semicircles the Athenian acropolis. The breakfast was rich and of good quality. We were there for two nights and no one came to clean up our room but we did not ask for it either.
