This Is a nice clean hotel only 5 min to metro. We enjoyed our stay. The food was filling and tasty, while the room was clean, with a good balcony view.Nice staff especially the restaurant manager Dimitris. He is so nice and made you feel very welcome.

This was booked through Emirates Holidays. It should not be an option for US travellers. It's in a terrible area of town. You have to take a metro to get to town. But worse... they have heat OR AC for the entire hotel.. So if you're hot in one room, you're out of luck. You can't open the doors because the noise is so bad. I am following up with Emirates. This shouldn't be a hotel option for anyone from USA. And on top of it all, there are a ton of big school kid groups here.

Location: not bad, you can find a metro station 500m far by walk Staff: available and helpful; not too smiling Services: you can find every basic ones (restaurant, bar, laundry) but you must pay everything immediatly and it isn't easy and pleasant. Room: essential, without landscape and near a busy road. Fortunately glasses stop almost every noise. Furniture need a quick replacement because out of date. Price: I was there during a tour, so I don't know the exact price for my staying, but I think you can find something better in Athen. Perhaps they understood this and have been renoving half hotel since last year. Should be better

Recommended for bed n breakfast, as long as you spend the rest of your time exploring Athens. Conveniently located, but absolutely basic in terms of amenities. Given the cost, it's a pretty neat option.

George A. at the front desk in the BEST! So helpful with recommendations and is hilarious! Be sure to visit the Plaka area, close to the Acropolis. Lots of cute streets with a flee market. Ideal for tourists.

I stayed in Athens in Feb, next to Syntagma Square. The Candia was the other end of the city centre and a but far away. We walked every day and it was OK, but you couldn't really do it with small children, it's a but far to the City Centre. The Hotel staff were more than helpful and on arriving offered any information that we required. We were given two rooms instead of the Family room we had booked. The rooms were warm and clean, the hotel is dated and signs of general wear and tear are all over. However the breakfast was substantial and a varied choice for everyone, my daughter asked for Gluten free bread and got it. We used the bar when we returned after sightseeing all day and the bar staff were always helpful and friendly. The last evening before we returned we ordered and ate in the bar, we ordered the pizzas and they were really good. I would stay here again as it was fabulous value for money. Even though we were a little further out than expected we bought 2 day tickets for the Gray Line Tour bus and got off on the square around the corner form the hotel. Rooms were tidied and cleaned daily and fresh towels.

i stay here for two nights. near to train station but not much around the hotel when night. near to small mosque. they need to improve on food if they accept to provide halal food since my travel agent request for dinner at hotel. better to serve by course not not buffet. other was great. too bad cant get to rooftop to view the city due ti strong wind z😅

This hotel is at a reasonable location, walking distance between 2 train stations. We booked this as part of a BA Flight and Hotel deal to Greece and the location and packaged price was reasonable. There are however far better hotels. The hotel was undergoing renovation when we visited, so hopefully things have picked up. The look of the rooms is a bit old with the elevator/lift still the old model and creaking. The restaurant and the breakfast spread are a plus, this was included as part of the package deal. Room views were non-existent and the general food options nearby for vegetarians aren't that great !

We booked a super break trip to Athens for 3 nights for our 40th wedding anniversary. Tui specified a quiet double room . When we arrived the staff did not appear to know we were coming and we were put at the front of the hotel in a room with 3 single beds. The room overlooked a busy main road and a train track where the trains ran all night. The noise was horrendous and kept us awake all night. We asked to be moved and we were put on the 3rd floor but still near the road and with 3 single beds. The noise was still horrendous and we moved again a bit further from the road . The beds were rock hard and we thought we had been bitten by mosquitoes only to find from a friend who is a gp it was bed bug bites. Breakfast was good although the waiter whipped the plates and cleared the table as soon as we got up to get a drink. The hotel is not in a good part of Athens but I have to say that all the staff were helpful and really tried to help us. The hotel is not the best but the staff are lovely.

Staff at restaurant and roof terrace and housekeeping were very friendly! Rooms are clean but simple. Beds are uncomfortable. Nice terrace with good food options! Noisy inside the room due to location next to road, but ok.. you can expect that. However, there were groups of young people staying at the hotel and they "claimed" the roof terrace in the evening till 3 o'clock at night. Staff could not do anyting, but try to aks them to "keep it down", but it felft like a youth hostel. Did not get any sleep for last 3 nights... They were fully booked so when I complained for the second time and asked for another room, did they offer a smaller room, but it was our last day, so I did not bother (no time to repack, but decided to visit the city again) and put in earplugs... again a bad night sleep...
