This has got to be the most perfect location in the whole of Athens! Monastiraki Square has a lovely villagey atmosphere and almost doesn't feel like part of the city. Great bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk, and only 5-10 minutes from the Acropolis. We arrived, as most travellers do, weary under the weight of our luggage, to be greated by a friendly gentleman on reception who was smiley and welcoming. Our room (no24 - non Acropolis view) was HUGE and airy with a fabulous bathroom and monsoon style shower. Breakfast was served in the roof bar and offers a good selection of hot dishes, meats, cheeses and pastries etc and was well worth the extra €3 a night per person.
Due to the popularity of the amazing roof bar though you may find it difficult to get a seat in the afternoons or evenings, but as long as you don't mind waiting, or pre-empting your visit and booking table, you will guaretneed one of the best views in Greece!
