No better location!

We stayed in 3 different Athen hotels throughout our trip to Greece and this was by far the best location. The hotel itself is pretty average, but the breakfast was the best we had in our month long visit to Greece in over 7 hotels. Easy to get to anywhere in Athens, including the airport and port. Take the Subway, which is right around the corner (Redline). You can connect from the airport (Blue Line) and the Port (Green Line).

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk a few blocks from the hotel further into Plaka before choosing a place to eat. The ones closest to the hotel are not great and prices are higher.

Great place to stay in Athens

Great place to stay in Athens. Extremely close to Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. Short walking distance to other most other sites. Very nice breakfast. Very friendly staff. Rooms significantly above average for most reasonably priced European hotels. Really enjoyed our stay.

Great value for the money

This is a really nice hotel in downtown Athens. The room was not stunning or anything, but perfectly adequate, clean, quiet, with truly generous and helpful staff. Honestly, it was an honour to tip everyone well. What is unbeatable about this hotel is the location. You are on a quiet street but within two minutes of all Plaka's action and the gates of the Acropolis. This is now our favourite hotel in athens.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Go around 5 to the Acropolis and take plenty of water and acold bottle of wine. . . If you are discreet it's the perfect place for a nice sundown drink. Check to make sure it's one of the until-8 pm evening. if you have kids, this is a wonderful place to really wander around and have a picnic. . .

Best location to the Acropolis

Excellent location with an average old looking hotel. Average service with below average breakfast. Restaurant closes after breakfast and do not open until the next day despite the fact that it advertise dinner availability. Could not be rated more than 3 stars.

Perfect Location

The Hotel is OK. Very good breakfast. The best is the location: 1 block from Partenon, 2 blocks from Plaka restaurants, 1 block from metro station, 1 block from car rentals.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't go to restaurants in Plaka. They are expensive and no so good. Go where Greeks go. If you see too many tourists, don't go in. You can have a lunch for 7 Euros ("crisis menu").

Location, location, location.

Very centrally located. Easy walk to all of the major attractions. Great desk staff- very helpful. Soft comfortable beds with large European rooms. The best breakfast I've seen in Europe. Could use a little updating- hence, the 4 rating rather than 5.

Excellent Hotel

We had a double room for 2 adults and 1 child for 4 nights. We were very satisfied with the hotel. The room is big enough for the three of us. The room and bath room look newly renovated and are really nice. The breakfast (included in the price) was excellent. The location of the hotel is the best in our opinion. We walked to the Plaka area (5 minutes) for dinner every day. The Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum are just 2-3 minutes walk. The Acropolis metro stop is 1 minute away. The hotel staff all speaks good English. We got lots of great help from them. Athens is a great city to visit.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

We took the long distance buses to Delphi and Sounio. Both sites are excellent. If you are short in time, don't miss Sounio.

AWFUL!

The only thing good about the hotel is it's location to the metro. Otherwise, it was a complete waste of money. We arrived in the evening very tired and there was no bell captain to pick up our luggage. It took us 3 rounds to bring up our luggage for 3 people bc the elevators were so old and so small. We went for dinner and when we returned, the power was out. 1 hour later we receieved power and thought we had the AC on; however, all night it was not working. Apparently, they just shut it off without any notification. In addition, the hairdryer was some kind of ancient blower which was basicly another example of the upkeep you can imagine for this hotel. It was a miserable night stay and left a bad taste at the end of our trip.
