We stayed at the O&B for one night before our Regent cruise (which was fabulous) left Athens (Piraeus). Very welcoming and helpful staff at the front desk. The staff seemed eager to help and offered suggestions for touring the area. I also recommend you have them arrange taxis to/from the airport/port for you as Athens taxis are not known for their honesty.
The overall decor of the hotel is modern/contemporary and was appealing to our eyes (we are in our mid 30s). Bathrooms are really nice with walk in shower and the room was as cold as you like it (which was quite welcome after strolling through athens in the summer). We had an upgraded room which was quite spacious, but the standard room our friends stayed in was on the small side. You may want to pay a little more if you're going to be staying a while and need the space. Standard was still fine, though.
Also, big plus was the free internet and breakfast buffet.
I thought this hotel was a great find for the price. I just wish we would have had another day to spend in Athens. You can tell most of the people are happy to have the tourists in the current economic situation. Go and enjoy Athens (and this hotel)!
As others have noted, the hotel is in a great location to explore the parthenon as well as cafes which are frequented by locals at night. Btw, I recommend eating a late dinner at Filistron to watch the sunset on the parthenon. And the food is better than the views!
A big thank you to the staff of O and B for our stay and a thanks to other tripadvisor reviewers who recommended the hotel.
