The Lotus Hotel was a excellent choice for us for our three days in Athens. As the taxi cab driver brought us in from the aiport he said that the neighborhood around Omonnia? Square was very bad and not safe at night, so I was nervous we had made a poor selection, but the Lotus Hotel is past this area, on a quiet street and VERY close tot he metro station (1+ blocks). The hotel is completely renovated and has a wonderful restaurant/bar where they serve a very good breakfast in the morning. The rooms are modern with Ikea style furniture and very good bathrooms. The showers were probably the best we had in Greece. The staff is VERY helpful, always offering suggestions of ways to get to attractions and they actually kindly held our bags as be checked out and went to Easter services.
It is not in the heart of the Plaka district, but getting there and to all the other sights of Athens is just a short train ride away. And the cost fit perfectly with our budget.
