Great hotel with wonderful staff
Comfortable hotel with a very large room. AC was very effective. Great location - steps from the Metro. Old style building and this comes with some quirks - don’t let this put you off. Fabulous rooftop bar with a chilled and cool vibe - and the best views of Monastraki sq and Acropolis. The free welcome glass of wine was a nice touch. The staff at the hotel were all excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and went out of their way to be helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to return to this hotel!!

Great location by Monastiraki square.
The hotel is conveniently located at Monastiraki square with its vibrant feel. Everything is close by. We saw a strong police presence, so we felt at ease. We loved strolling by Hadrian's library and window shopping in the area. The hotel provides welcome drinks from 5-7pm at the rooftop bar. The included buffet breakfast is at the rooftop bar with very nice north views of the Acropolis. There is also an open air dining area on top of the rooftop bar with the same Acropolis views. We recommend an unassuming local seafood restaurant, called Atlantikos, which is only 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Overall, we recommend the hotel for its location and the modern room. The only thing to dislike is the cramped elevator to the rooms, it's got to be the smallest one we've ever been on.

Great location and staff are excellent
Great location and the staff are excellent. Room was large and well equipped, whilst I didn’t have a view from my room it was quiet. The roof top restaurant is great for breakfast and transforms into a amazing cocktail bar in the evening and we were well looked after by Nadia.

It was in one of the main squares! There was plenty to do at night with tons of people. Felt like we were home as we live in NYC. The breakfast was amazing! The views are great. We would definitely stay there again!
