“excellent location and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

The hotel is nicely located near the new acropolis museum , rooms are very good although when choosing your room the twin beds are a bit narrow , prefer 1 double bed if your are single or couple. Service is excellent and staff very helpfull. Would absolutely come back to this hotel . Great place to stay and quiet location, in downtown Athens.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

The hotel is located just behind the Acropolis museum. Syntagma and Plaka were a short walk away and the metro station is under 10 mins walking. The location made it very easy for us to see all the major sites and the shopping districts.
The rooms were very clean and the bathroom was of a decent size, with a tub! Our room had a big balcony from where you could see the Acropolis.
As written before, the hotel is a bit touristy with large groups staying and if you're not early for the breakfast, you can have a long wait for a table. But we were out for most of the day and so this did not bother us.
The service could have been better but that could be because the hotel was full during our stay. The manager was very kind to us, even though we tried haggling for the room rates, and arranged taxi's and gave us information regarding the best mode of transport, places to eat, areas to avoid, etc. Overall it was a great experience.

Excellent modern style hotel, close to all attractions. New Acrpolis museum 500 metres, Acropolis Complex, 1000 metres, Acropoli Metro station 500 metres. Loads of local tavernas, and only a short walk to "plaki" where all the remaining restaurents and cafes reside.

Room was modern, clean and everything worked, bathroom clean and well stocked. Breakfast was excellent, great choice and good quality.

Staff friendly and helpful with directions and free maps.

WiFi in lounge 2Euros.

We stayed in this hotel during the week end of the Athens problems and you might as well have been in another City. This small hotel is tucked away in a little street situated in a great location for most of the attractions and restaurants. The staff are friendly and helpful, and although the rooms are on the small side they are clean and comfortable. The bathroom was also a little small but again clean and offered a good shower. Our room also had a view of the Acropolis.
The breakfast offered was of a continental nature with plenty of choice and was more than acceptable.
If you are travelling from the airport you can get the metro to Acropolis station for 8 Euros and walk for 5 minutes instead of a cab for 35 Euros. The journey is about the same, depending on the traffic, about an hour.
The price paid was very reasonable for a capital city hotel and comes recommended for a short break.

Room Tip: Try and get a balcony room
