The décor of this hotel is a little different utilising recycled articles from the previous hotel to decorate its public areas. It is centrally located, with the Plaka area and other ancient attractions within easy walking distance.
The rooms are very clean and modern with the turndown service being a nice touch. Linens are fresh and clean and the towels large and thick. A lack of hot water, poor lighting (for shaving and the application of makeup) and little room for the storage of suitcases let the rooms down somewhat.
The free internet is quick and efficient and there is a business center in the basement. This is useful for the printing of boarding passes. A well equipped gym is also located here.
Breakfast consists of self service cereal and fruit followed by a choice of eggs and accompaniments which are delivered to your table. The freshly squeezed orange juice is not to be missed!
The staff are what makes this hotel great! Barbara at the front desk was very helpful arranging day tours plus Fotini, Panos and Andreas in the restaurant/bar area made a nightcap into a very enjoyable experience! Our Greek came on a treat due to their late night lessons!
I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again on our next visit to Athens.
