We stayed for five days; the hotel is clearly past its prime, sadly Athens is in a poor way financially so area the hotel is in (once prosperous) is now not the greatest. It's 30 minutes walk to the main attractions and although we felt safe some of the walk is through abandoned areas. Signs of the hotels former glory... More

The room was with carpet and it was all dirty and the rooms smells awful. It is not a good choice because it is not even in the center. Breakfast normal. I do not recommend. Room is suffocating and so old and bathroom is sooo small!!

The location was terrible, close to city center but very dangerous place to walk. The surrounding of the hotel was unclear and with a lot of migrants and beggers. The rooms were with specicfic odor and not clean. the breakfast was only eggs, butter, bread and some meat.

We were handed a twin bed room rather than a double (which was booked). The hotel failed to apologise for this, despite it being contested. We finally managed to coerce a double bed room key out of the unhelpful gentleman behind the reception, who thought it an inconvenience on his part. Paper maps were charged at 2 euros and none...

Three friends and I booked here, arriving late in the evening on the 27th June, where we were informed that the hotel could not give us the rooms that we had booked as they over-advertise the number of double rooms available on websites.

Three friends and I wanted to spend six days in Athens so we booked the whole time at this hotel, we stayed one night. First, the hotel is not in a good location.
