Hotel is completely different than what those photos show.
This hotel has a good location for visiting Athens, pretty much in the middle of all city tours and public transportation. Price is right and staff is very friendly. Highly recommended.
The experience was good. The location is excellent, only few hundred meter from the nearest metro station and surrounded by dining places.
We want to come back , the service and hotel is great , only can add more choices for breakfast :) The location is easy to find transportation to go any were .
TIME OF VISIT: December [ winter] NO parking available. Umbrellas are cheap. Location near Omonia Metro station, then a walkable 4 blocks to Hotel. Plus easy access from airport. Pay a one way metro fare to city 30-40 mins], and transfer to Omonia Metro station on same ticket, then you are able to purchase metro tickets at kiosk for a single direction, or 3 day pass [suggested--validate once], which allows you on the bus transit system as well. Many exits at this station; ever a major department store HONDA, which has a roof top self service cafeteria, plus two tour buses offerings information stops infront of HONDA. Pay on bus, and receive earphones/map stops. The hotel has many information amenties which include maps, trips, and a very nice laundry service where you drop it off and return in about 2 hours. Please check the opening times--about 4 blocks away. If your hotel price includes breakfast, it's a very plain breakfast. Many places near to get a simple breakfast, plus small stores to get water, fruits and snacks. Room provided an electric hot water pot. Don't expect a large shower...European style with a spray handle. There is a small lift -- 2 pers + baggage. Plus a full bar, and minimum room service. Limited English spoken, but they do try!! 24 hour front desk. Your room key turns the electricity on / 220 wattage. Bring adapters, and free easy access wi-fi. Phone in room. Heating and AC on remote control. Enjoy your stay no matter how long. Walking is essentially necessary. Good walking shoes recommended. Learn some Greek before arriving ... it's helpful.
The hotel is located in a tough neighborhood but is not as bad as previous reviewers have made it seem. It is typical of every major metro area downtown that I have ever been to. If you are a street smart traveler, you should not have any problems. The room was a standard European hotel room that was small but adequate. The down side was after taking a shower, the bathroom floods. The breakfast was small and was mostly breads, cereal, lunch meats, and cheese. It was good enough to get you to an early lunch but not a fulfilling meal. The location was the best thing about this hotel. All the major sites are within easy walking distance. 10-15 minutes to the acropolis and the same to Parliament.
I enjoyed the hotel staff mostly [...]. They were helpful and friendly. The hotel is close to everything, but not in a great (safe) area. It can get a little scary at night. However, if you stick to the main roads, it is only a 15 minute walk to the ruins. For the money, it was well worth it. I would recommend the hotel if you want to be close, but not too close and save a few dollars.
