A friend and I stayed there o 3 separate occasions in June this year. We found it very handy to Plaka, Acropolis and the shuttle bus to the airport and city tours.
The rooms were small but adequate. The breakfast was tasty and varied,and the staff were extremly helpful. A special rememberance was the bottle of red wine left in our room on our last night spent in Athens.
Thank you,we will certainly reccomend this hotel.

This hotel had the best breakfast option out of any of the hotels or the cruise that we went on. The hotel is a small modern one on the edge of the Plaka, and is a great location for people on foot. Syntagma square is nearby, from where one can catch taxis, buses, or the metro. In particular, the X95 bus line from the airport goes to Syntagma every twenty minutes and only costs €5.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable, and had air conditioning. It was a great place to stay to experience the heart of Athens.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies that look out onto the street.

THis hotel is a great find in the heart of Athens Plaka. It is walking distance to the Acropolis and in the old part. It is very convenient by airport bus x95 from the airport to Syntagma then 3 blocks to the hotel. The breakfast is huge and the eating area is very nice and clean. The rooms are small but more than adequate for a short trip to AThens. My family stayed just 1 night to see the Acropolis befoer going on to Santorini.

We requested a spacious room, but the first room we were given was very small; you had to edge by a bed to get into the room. And its bathroom was the size of an airplane toilet with a small tub added. If you turned on the water too hard in the bathroom sink, it bounced out of the small sink and out the door. We saw other bigger rooms and asked to be moved. They obliged and the second room was bigger and more comfortable. Its bathroom was quite nice. But both rooms had heavy scratchy dowdy bedspreads. I notice these are not featured on the photos of rooms on the hotel website.The hotel's location was good, near Syntagma Square, but in a quiet part of the Plaka. Breakfast was only OK (stale breadstuffs our first morning), but the hotel had hired a woman to talk to people at breakfast and help them with their plans for the day. This is a very nice feature that other hotels would do well to imitate. This hotel sufficed but we would not return there.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for mentioning the very central location and the excellent customer service we offering.
Referring to the room size, we most probably did not have any superior room available on your arrival. Clients who defiantly wish to stay in that type of room, are booking it and not have it on request and upon availability.
I hope you will consider staying in one of our properties on a future trip to Athens.

Best regards
