First of all, everything about this hotel is new and exactly as pictured on the website. Truth in advertising is important to me as I have arrived at hotels and realized their photos are OLD (and so is everything in the hotel), The A/C works fine, the bathroom is perfect (new, clean and everything works great), the bed is comfortable, the view from my balcony to the acropolis is WONDERFUL, the buffet breakfast is more than adequate (although it doesn't change), the eggs are fresh and the coffee is perfect, and the pool (although small) is a nice, refreshing treat in the afternoon between walking. Because it is situated at the foot of Filopappos Hill, it is very quiet and I was never bothered by noise. The location is SUPERB...I have spent the last five days on foot walking to every major site in Athens (the furthest was the Benaki Museum/Kolonaki and Lycabittos) within 35 minutes. The Acropolis and New Acropolis Museum (5 minutes), Plaka, Agora (10 minutes) and a bunch of great restaurants/views on the pedestrian walkway of Apostolou Pavlou (15 minutes). Hotel staff friendly and efficient, and they make a great frappe for only 3 euro. No restaurant, but there are so many within 5-15 minutes that it doesn't matter. Having read a prior review, I was prepared for the hike up the hill to get there from Synggrou Fix train station, but if you are not ready for the uphill walk or have a lot of luggage, I recommend a taxi. I extended my stay one day, and will defintely stay here on my next trip. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel!
