This hotel's main selling points are its location and its prices.
There are few hotels in this area of Athens, which was completely overhauled for the 2004 Olympic games, and turned into a relatively trendy semi-pedestrian area. The many large coffee shops and their outdoor tables are very popular with locals in warmer months, but upscale enough not to become boisterous.
At one end of the long road is a subway station with connections to both Piraeus and the airport, making it the ideal stopover before/after a visit to the Greek islands. At the other end is the Acropolis. Being able to visit Athens without using taxis or walking through major roads is a boon.
The hotel itself is nothing spectacular, with somewhat tired rooms and obsolete bathrooms, but given the price and location I have no complaints. I do remember from a previous stay that the air conditioning struggled in the summer.
