Great location, slightly noisy

The location was great, just a 10 minute walk from acroplis and the staff was very helpful. We were in a room in the front of the hotel and could hear the traffic below. If you are a light sleeper, this might be an issue.

Adequate

This hotel is fine, but don't expect anything special. The beds weren't comfortable and the room could use some TLC. The rug was ripped in several places and although not dirty, the room could definitely use a facelift. The location is fine for the morning because it is close to the Akropolis and Zeus Temple, but it is on the other side of the Akropolis from most of the areas where the restaurants/nightlife is, so you end up having a longer walk or taxi after dinner or a few drinks.

Lower your expectations.

I stayed at the hotel for a week during October 2012 for my honeymoon thinking the 4 star rating was going to impress my wife. The bad: really hard and uncomfortable bed, I was hurting for the first two nights, the toilet is next to the wall so you have to use it sideways..., thought that was kind of funny :), most of the staff is very cold, but some are very friendly and helpful, also I didn't know the breakfast wasn't included and was 24 euros/ 50 dollars per person per day (hu!!!???). The good: Location, location, location, I rented a car and didn't use it, everything (in Athens) within walking distance, good neighborhood, and room cleanliness was good too. Final word: Definitely not a 4 star hotel, not bad, but if you can find an average hotel for less $ in the area, then don't waste your money here, you will not get a 4 star treatment.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you're into ancient history, Acropolis, temple of Zeus, and the old city is the best place to go.

Dream trip to Athens

Stayed 6 nights. Really good value. Walking distance to Plaka, Acropolis Museum and sights. Breakfast buffet much better than anticipated especially fresh croissants. Helpful staff. Free internet. Recommend definitely. Would stay there again without hesitation. Used Metro from airport, 100 metres to hotel. Mattress might have been softer but hotel very good.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to Acropolis first as ticket lets you into other archaeological sites free. Do not miss the new Acropolis Museum, it is extraordinary. And the creperie near the Museum had lovely deserts.

Good base to explore Athens

The hotel is well placed for walking to the major sites, or for getting trams or the metro to get the more distant ones and also the beaches. The only complaint is that it is situated between two busy main roads and thus it is noisy all night long. The breakfasts are well worthwhile.

Excellent room for business trip.

I had an excellent experience. Will come back again if I have another chance to visit Athens. Very convenient for transportation with buses, tram, and Metro; all within walking distance. Would certainly recommend this hotel. Take the breakfast offer of 4 euros added to the package. The only small negative is you can hear the traffic at night even though I was on the 5th. Floor.

Great Hotel but eat and drink elsewhere!!

Everything was great. Price was real good for my 3 day stay. Tried to extend and the price had doubled. Definately worth $70.00, not $140.00. Internet in room did not work some times. Staff was great. Bathroom was small with miniture tub. Did not include breakfast and they wanted 28 euros for a their buffet. Also 7 euros for a small beer. I was buying the same large beer elsewhere for 2.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

An old well dressed man named George hangs out in the square at the base of the Acropolis. He is a con man and do not go for a drink with him. I was warned about him and totally shocked him when I told him his exact scam.

Good hotel, overall

We liked the location. There is a coffee shop across the street and an ATM around the corner. It is a short walk to the Plaka and all the monuments,etc. The staff was very helpful. The rooftop bar / restaurant had a direct stunning view of the acropolis, especially at night- awesome. Drinks were expensive, but the view and piano player made it worth a visit!!! The only thing we would have liked would be to get a double bed instead of 2 singles. Overall, we would stay there again.

Check on local strike schedules. Air traffic controller, taxi, and metro strikes are frequent these days. Some of our group got stranded in greece for 2 or 3 extra days.
