Amazingly located in the centre. The rooftop bar is a must visit but you cant beat how strategicially it is located in Athens. Everything is walking distance. From the shopping streets to the food area of Psiri to even the Pantheon.
The amount I saved in taxi fare/metro fare beats every drawback this place has. And this place doesnt have that many disadvantages. The staff is very helpful and always smiling & happy to greet you.
Breakfast was usual fare. Nothing spectacular. Was repeated for the 2 days I did have it.
The lift was small and as per all the other reviews, there is always a line there. As guest you do get priority when going up but the waiting involved when going down is still a problem.
My room window was broken and hanging by a hinge. This increased the overall noise in my room. The street is noisy and bustling with activities all the way till 3am.
Minor nitpicks though in the overall picture.
If I visit Athens again, this would def be the place I would visit again. The location. You will not get another place so centrally located at such a bargain price anywhere in Athens. I would stay here and highly recommend this place.
