For short time stay, quite good hotel. We stayed there during our Erasmus+ exchange project for 10days. Two elevators, nice lobby, personnel speaks english good, no problems with communication. Room really simple, but ok. Bathroom wasn’t really clean and towels not changed every day, just folded the old ones.. Nice view from balcony, as well from the roof top. Even they are renovating it, so it was closed, but if you ask them kindly and they open, so u can sunbathe or just chill and enjoy the view. Easy to find, close to metro station Larissa. Quite close to all popular places.

Everything was clean, although the sheets need to be replaced(quite old and used). Good furniture. Clean bathroom but old, a renovation would be nice. Breakfast was simple, good and pretty diversed. Definetly will choose again but just for a short stay.

The hotel is located about 5 minutes walk from Larrisa Station. The facility is quite good and is always clean. The air conditioning system is a bit noisy but works well. Breakfast is great as you have some varieties available both hot and cold options. There are various shops and food places right next to the hotel so it's quite convenient if you want to grab a late night snack or drinks. I would book again with this hotel if I get another chance to visit Athens

One of the most affordable hotels around the city, loved the service from the time of reservations till check out and all my email request were ascertained. If one is single or couples traveling this place suits for both. Keep up the good work many thanks to the Housekeeping team for keeping us clean at all times.

I stayed here hesitantly based on prior reviews, but was actually pleasantly surprised. I had a corner balcony which was huge, the bed was comfortable, bathroom impeccably clean and new towels. The location is great it's a 5 minute walk to a metro and central train station, 10 minute walk to a good restaurant district and a 20 minute walk straight to the middle of the city. The downside was indeed that the rooms are quite old, carpet, T.V., wardrobe and key access. However for the price charged I don't really know what people are complaining about. You can pay similar and stay in a 4 bed dorm in a hostel. Lastly breakfast is included and is decent enough to give you some energy for the day. I would recommend for the budget conscious.

Bad area, the balcony looked dangerous and the room wasn't clean at all. Aircondition didn't work at all. We booked 3 nights but had to leave to another hotel after one night. Do yourself a favor and book another hotel.

We had booked this hotel for three nights and it was beyond all criticism. The air was super bad, air-condition didn't work, smelled like used cigarettes and felt like the tiny rooms hadn't been touched in years by any staff. IT WAS EVEN INSECTS IN THE ROOM! We had to book another hotel after one night and didn't even get the full refund from the very unfriendly staff. DO NOT GO HERE!

Good price (although it was a special discount for that day) Proximity to Metro Line 2 (the re coloured one) is good. Smiles on people working there are a bit rare. Photocopy of my ID was taken despite I used a chip-card with a PIN. Average all-in-all.-

Good for this price but doesn't really offer much. The staff is not helpful, though they will answer your questions. The rooms look like they haven't been touched since 80s, but they were clean. Breakfast is not bad but it's not really good either.

In June this year my friends and I visited Athens. It is not only Greece's capital but also a historic cradle of civilization. The center of Athens is the old part of the city that has been transformed into a pedestrian zone. I would extract the part called Plaka which consists of a lot of narrow paved streets full of picturesque restaurants, cafés, tavernas, bars, souvenir shops and shops with traditional Greek product such as virgin olive oil, olives, tofu cheese, etc. Among the three main squares Omonia, Manastiraki and Syntagma Square I liked most the last one. It is located in front of the Greek Parliament. We were there at 11 am on a certain day of a ceremonial changing of the guard in Greek called Evzones. It was realy interestinig. Of course the most dominant building is the Acropolis that rises above the city center. Climbing on it is not as demanding as to look up the stairs that are made of sloping stone that slides under your feet. But when you get up, with the magnificent feeling of being in the place the 5th Century BC old, there is a fantastic view of the whole city. We stayed at the Balasca Hotel. The biggest advantage of this hotel is that it is close to the Omonia square and the city center, about 20 minutes' walk away. The hotel has three stars. There is free wifi in the room and the entire hotel. Cleanliness should be on a higher level. The breakfast restaurant is spacious but the choice of breakfast food is quite modest. There was not a safe box in the room.
