We have stayed at other hotels ranked Number 1 on TripAdvisor and have been disappointed but not this one. It's a short walk from the Acropolis Metro stop to the hotel. Most tourist attractions in the area have a relatively flat or little slope walk from this hotel compared to other areas like by the Roman Agora.
We had an executive room which was a nice size with a separate bedroom (medium-hard mattress). They put a separate bed for the child in the living room thus saving us from the dreadfully uncomfortable sleeper sofa. It was very clean. Honest. One of my biggest pet peeves is dirty carpets where your feet turn black walking from the shower to the bed, but not here.
The small balcony really does have Hadrian's Arch down and the Acropolis up the street. The kitchen area has basic kitchen stuff (plates, cutlery, cups, etc.) small hob/stove but no microwave, refrigerator and a sink. The bathroom has a round recessed light (kid favourite), robes and slippers. The fresh orange juice and waffles were a big hit for my kid who would live off of pain au chocolats (chocolate filled croissants) if I would allow it.
My two little misses on this hotel is: no microwave and the noise from the Plaka on Saturday night can be substantial until around 11:00. The other nights were pretty quiet.
