Yes all the other reviews are correct! Small high quality hotel with views from some rooms. One block from the action and tube station. Nothing really close by and on a scruffy street (Ignore). Breakfast options are superb, going to be very very hard to beat. Hands down recommendation as the best small top notch hotel in Athens. You really will not regret booking it.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view, nice in the morning! Quiet on the back or above floor 3

We stayed here our first two nights (before leaving for Mykonos). The location couldn't have been better. We were within walking distance to all of the sites we wanted to visit and we felt safe walking around in the area at all times of the day and night. The room and bathroom were very nice and clean. I would stay here again if I were to go back to Athens.

A good hotel in one of the safer areas of Athens. Within easy walking distance of all major sights, a good variety of restaurants and the metro. The decor was lovely and the hotel very clean. Breakfasts and evening meal were good. Hotel staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Would highly recommend for a weekend city break.

If you want to ruin your visit to Athens come here, you will not give credit to the service they are capable to give!!!.
Everything began by giving us an upgrade to the "Best room" 5th floor and amazing view to the Parthenon. We were told we could not have dinner in the roof terrace because there was a "private event". It turned out that the private event was the owners bachelor party. We had loud music and a BIG LOUD party in our roof until 5 AM!!. We complaint at 11pm because it was impossible to sleep and the answer was "so sorry but it will be over at 2 AM". At 2 AM of course was not over, then we tried to phone again to front desk and did not pick up. We came downstairs to complaint again and the answer was sorry but I can not do anything for you. So simply we need to stand it and NOT sleep!! Next morning we had our balcony full of garbage, outside the room the floor was discusting AND smelly, it was like a nightclub!!. Saturday morning we asked to speak to the Manager, of course she was not in the hotel until 11 am. Ok we came back at 11 and she still was not there, they told us @230 she will be around. Nothing happend. Then at 3pm we got a bottle of wine and fruit to appologize. I had migrane, laying in the room instead of being out having fun in athens, and while I want to speak with the manager I recieve wine and fruit as an answer UNACCEPTABLE!. I rejected the present and then finally the manager appeared. She told me she was totally embarrassed and appologizing. I had to make clear what was the minimum they could do for us and got free stay, nevertheless the DAMAGE was done. I did not Enjoy the full saturday laying in bed with migrane. I have to say personnel was really in a difficult situation because it was the owner's party, nevertheless it appears the owner DOES NOT REALIZE HE HAD A CONTRACT WITH US THAT HE BROKE and, even further, spoiled my holidays. We will never come back here. You feel totally ABUSED!!

Room Tip: When you arrive, ask if the owner's son is planning to have a party on the roof.

The neighborhood is not the greatest but it's not dangerous and it's a perfect launching point to see Athen's sites on foot. Likely because of the neighborhood the price/value relationship is excellent for a European City Center hotel.
If you need a place to stay for one or two nights in order to sightsee Athens this in a good place to consider.
The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. The room was large with a comfortable bed and a tiny balcony. The bathroom was quite nice with both a shower and a tub. The breakfast, included in the room rate, was good, though the attendant was quitet surely. The only major disappointment for us was that we were expecting to be able to eat at least one meal on the advertised roof terrase with view of the Acropolis - unfortunately that was not possible since it was closed for our entire stay.
