Stayed here for 4 nights. The location itself is OK, it is right beside the Metaxourghio station, but it isn't the best area. Having said that, you can be at Akropoli station 20 minutes after leaving your room!
The rooms are fine, if a bit small (but normal for these smaller European hotels.) The bathroom was excellent. The breakfast buffet is very good and well stocked. The breakfast room is a pizzeria for the rest of the day, but we didn't use it. There is one taberna just around the corner - handy if you arrive into Athens very late, and the small cafe across the road doesn't look the best, but it is great for a late night beer before retiring! Two half litre beers and two bottles of water for €6 is good value.
The hotel has free wifi but I found it an absolute pain to use. Frequently unable to actually get on the web, and when it did connect, it took an age. Maybe the wired connection is better but you have been warned!
The streets get busy around the hotel from about 7am-ish and there is construction going on across the road, so a room off to the side or to the back would be better. When the construction is finished, it would not be loud at all.
This is a well-priced hotel which has a good location for those who are in Athens to get out and explore the sights. Recommended!
