Customer service at the reception was top notch. The hotel is located in an excellent location. Close to everything.

Very nice hotel and rooms, good A/C, real nice breakfast, staff very helpful, walking distance to the Acropolis, the pedestrian market area and restaurants. Overall was great and would atay here again if I return to Athens.

I arrived at the with terrible vertigo resulting from my flight from Santorini and subsequent subway ride from the airport. The manager was very understanding and kind and got us into our room as soon as possible and even brought up a tray of refreshments herself about an hour later in view of my compromised condition. Above and beyond, in my opinion. The hotel is at the foot of and has beautiful views of the Acropolis and is well situated to Athens attractions, restaurants, sights, etc. and the Monastiraki subway station. The rooftop bar has a spectacular view of the Acropolis, as well.

Great service central to all food options city center and near historic sites.

Outstanding location with easy access to transportation, nearby sites, and all the major sites in Athens. We enjoyed a 5th floor room with a balcony overlooking the Plaka area. The breakfast was complete with hot snd cold options. The rooftop bar has an exceptional view of the Acropolis both day & night!

Hotel staff is unbelievable; they go out of their way to satisfy your needs and their customer service is awesome. They are extremely helpful about directions, what to do, do-nots etc.....

We stayed only one night, everything was good, just a little issue with a shower door (no seal), during shower water will travel out of the shower area to the bathroom floor.

Staff were very friendly. Great deal for what you pay. Walking distance from everything and a great view of the acropolis.

Great stay, for two nights. Breakfast is a real surprise, with a beautiful room set aside for the guests, and more choices than is usual for breakfast bars. I only have one negative comment for this hotel, but just to alert people who want silence. The walls allow sound to carry between the rooms. Everything else is perfect.

I would stay here every time in Athens. Very friendly staff and the room was all that you needed.

Somewhat friendly staff. Close to everything you need.

Nice hotel in the heart of Athens, close to the Acropolis (Parthenon) and the Acropolis Museum and only a 5 minute walk from Monastiraki Metro Station. Take the #2 Blue line metro from the airport to the Monastiraki station. It will cost you 10 Euros per person but you can buy two for 18 Euros. Plenty of restaurants/eateries all around. Walk to the National Archaeological Museum (20-25 minutes) up Athinas and you'll pass by the central fish/meat market. We did the one-day three island tour of Hydra, Poros and Aegina and it was great. Breakfast at the hotel was good and the view from the rooftop terrace was fantastic. There is a bar there but we did not use it. The hotel elevator is small - only used it the first and last day to carry luggage. If you choose to take the stairs, like we did, beware it is a workout especially if your room is on the 6th floor!!!! Free Wi-Fi & breakfast included. If you are travelling from the US, don't forget 220-110 AC adapter (or two). Would recommend this hotel.

Hotel is in a perfect location close to everything. Next to Plaka a few blocks away to Monistaraki square, close to restaurants and shopping. Rooms were comfortable and they gave us complimentary wine and water in our room. Breakfast buffet has a good variety. the rooftop bar has a good view of the Acropolis.

What we expected was modern rooms, balcony with view of Acropolis and relaxing rooftop bar. What we got was a deteriorating room with a sewer smell and no sound proofing, a balcony but only a view of the building next door under construction, and the rooftop bar has no shade and is run down. To be fair our friends had the room next to us and there was no noise problem between our rooms. However, their shower over flowed into the room and they switched rooms. The other wall was useless for noise and we could hear their entire conversation as if they were talking to us. You could hear them sleeping too. I say sleeping because it wasn't like they were snoring loudly. The location was good but for the price you can get better. Breakfast was mediocre and since Athens in general is not pricy for breakfast (maybe 10 euro) next time we'll stay elsewhere. Staff were friendly and helpful except for when our friends wanted a room change. We didn't even both trying to change rooms for the sewage smell after that since it was our last night that the smell came up.
