6/10 Good

Good hotel in a not so good neighbourhood.
The front desk staff were pleasant at check in. They upgraded us to a room with ‘acropolis view’ (although admittedly you could not see the acropolis as view was blocked by hotel in front). Hotel is clearly dated but condition is ok. Clean. What really let the stay down was the breakfast and the neighbourhood. The breakfast was disappointing from lack of choice to stale pastries and lack of authentic local offerings. The neighbourhood did not make us feel safe and I would recommend Uber/Taxi to the main areas which are only 5-10 minute drive away.

10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic stay
We stayed for 10 nights and our room and hotel facilities were great. Room was spacious and came with a balcony. We had daily breakfast on the rooftop that offered unresctricted views to the city including Parthenon and Lycabettus Hill. Breakfast had loads of choice including hot food. Hotel staff was extremely polite and helpful with all our requests. Hotel offered parking at reasonable cost. Hotel is located right next to the metro station as well. Hotel was very safe, but surrounding felt risky to walk late at night. There were two bars right next to the hotel that were always busy if you fancy a drink, although we did not try them. There is a beautiful bar/restaurant on the hotel rooftop albeit a bit pricey (but you get the views). The only critical feedback we had was about the lack of recycling facilities at the hotel. Other than that, we had a fantastic stay and we would definitely return. Many thanks to all staff.

8/10 Very good

Good customer service. Helpful and friendly staff. Was pleased as they changed my room when I complained that the AC was not working. Restaurant food & drink was expensive when compared to the outside restaurants. Also not a vast selection of food options in hotel restaurant. Very good transportation links (metro, hop-on hop-off bus, taxi etc.). Overall good hotel to stay.

A great spot for an Athens visit
A great location for an extended stay. Close to the metro (just steps away) with lots of choices of restaurants in the area. Shopping is not great, but with public transportation just steps away, it is an easy fix. Room was comfortable, bathroom and shower work well. Our balcony had a view of the square - which could be very busy, but the double doors of the patio blocked all sound. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was amazing, with more choices than you could possibly want. If you are so inclined, the hop on hop off bus stop is right next to the hotel as well!

Хороший отель
Отель находится рядом с метро. Удобно добираться но гулять рядом пешком не очень приятно. Есть отличное кафе с пирожными. Сауна и тренажерный зал. Бассейн не подогревался в ноябре месяце. Каждый день убирали комнату и ставили воду. обслуживающий персонал очень вежливый и никто не стучится чтобы убрать комнату ни свет ни заря. Завтрак до 11 часов- очень удобно. Завтрак относительно одинаковый.

The pool and roof top bar was just lovely. The room was spacious with a view of the Acropolis. The room was made up every day and complimentary drinks a bonus. Nothing was too much trouble.

Clean, excellent staff, convenient for all kinds of travel-foot, bus, metro; stunning views from the roof top of acropolis and surrounding hills; though the neighborhood is very run down, luckily the hotel is on the corner of the street, no need to go deep into the street to reach it.
