This hotel overall is very good.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and always greeted us with a smile.
I would definitely check that the hotel has not been overbooked before arriving, as the taxi driver from the airport led us to believe this is a common problem !
The hotel is in a quiet area a short walk from the " acropolis " and the area of plaka, which is full of restaurants, shops etc.
The rooms are not big, we found them suitable, but this is only a problem if you want to spend all day in them. Bathroom was a good size, although carefully direct shower head, otherwise floor gets flooded.
Breakfast was good, plenty of fruit, cereal, coffee etc, typically what you would expect.
The swimming pool is maybe only in the sun for a couple of hours a day as it is surrounded by tall building's.
The road from the hotel to the " acropolis " should be carefully navigated, as pavements are few and far between and can become quite busy with cars and motorcycles.
One downside of this hotel, as we found being on the fourth floor, directly below the roof terrace ( which does have an amazing view ) is that late at night if people decide to use it, the movement of furniture, does become quite annoying for people below trying to sleep.
Apart from that, I would give the hotel an 8/10 rating.
