A group of friends recently visited the Hotel for 3 nights. It was a superb experience. We really couldn't fault this hotel. Reception is clean and tidy and all the staff there are extremely helpful, especially Villiadis (hope I got his name right), he was always keen to give us the assistance we needed. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, beds very comfortable, we all agreed the power showers were awesome, and were thrilled that there was a fridge and safe provided. The breakfast was really good, a huge array of choices, replenished regularly. Tea and coffee with biscuits was supplied all day for free. But to top it all off, quite literally, the roof top bar is a real gem! The views are breathtaking and the lady who served in the bar upstairs was an asset to the hotel. She was funny and informative, we all enjoyed her company. All in all if you want a hotel right in the middle of the tourist area of Athens, look no further, you will not be disappointed....outstanding value and outstanding staff!

We stayed in the hotel for three nights in march. The best thing about the hotel is its location which is very convenient to walk around all the major sights and the view from the rooftop which is mesmerizing. The breakfast spread is good and the staff is courteous and helping. Its a great city hotel but don't expect it look like a five star. it's a walking distance from monastriki metro station, so airport transfer are easy too. Though I had a pickpocketing issue while walking from metro station to hotel, so be careful.

We are very happy to know that your stay at the hotel was a positive experience. We are certainly not a five star hotel. As classified, we are just a three star hotel and we provide the very best to our clients including very clean rooms, customer service, rich buffet breakfast, some superior rooms, top location.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review
Hope to see you again.
Best Regards,

On arrival at the hotel you get a warm welcome from the reception staff who are always smiling and approachable. We had room 311 which is an Acropolis view room and we received a bottle of wine and baklava on arrival. The room is spacious and the bathroom had been updated. The room was kept exceedingly clean by the staff and I had toiletries provided and replenished. There is a fridge in the room. The roof terrace is an awesome place for views, although in early March it was a little chilly. The bar had friendly service from 5.30pm, but through the day you could have free coffee and tea in the breakfast room. Breakfast was plentiful and had hot and cold food. Overall a fantastic hotel with first rate staff. Fantastic views from roof terrace and from our Acropolis view room.

Stayed 3 nights, and the hotel had everything we needed. Nothing to complain about and would highly recommend. The breakfast area can be a bit busy, quietened down after 9.30. Best location, and good value! View of Acropolis from the rooftop bar a bonus.

Just returned from 3 nights in Athens and have to write this review. The hotel was absolutely amazing from check-in to check-out. Yes we were lucky enough to get a room with a view of the Acropolis but it's the staff that make it great, from those at reception, in the breakfast room, the lady serving on the roof top bar (open from 5:30pm), the cleaners, in fact you feel that everybody genuinely wants you to have the best time possible and will provide you with advice and guidance to do this. Hot breakfast is limited but a large continental selection more than makes up for this. The breakfast room is open all day and provides free tea and coffee allowing you to rest your legs and take a break from the walking you are doing. We made good use of the roof top bar each evening where blankets are provided if you are feeling cold, the sounds of the vibrant city are lovely and you can enjoy the stunning views of the Acropolis. The hotel is so central to all main sites, restaurants and shopping streets. There is no doubt that I will be suggesting this to any family or friends that intend to visit Athens and would have no hesitation to stay again. Thank you very very much for making our stay so great.
