Stayed there for 2 nights.
Staff was friendly. Breakfast was nice. Room was simple and clean. The bed was really comfortable. I think everyone else has already covered most of it but I just wanted to mention about the area.
My husband and I spent most of our time in Athens walking and I mean a lot of walking. Sure the rare isn't as posh as the suburbs close to the embassy area but the suburb the hotel is in is more or less the real Athens. The people that lives in this area comes from multiple ethnic background therefore making it a little bit 'rough' but definitely not dangerous. It's actually really interesting to walk around to see how the real Athenians live. Only complaint was that at around 10pm someone in the neighbourhood still thinks karaoke is a good idea.
