The location is perfect. You can walk to Acropolis, museums, shops and Monastraiki metro station - which can deliver you directly to/from the airport using the blue line 3. Many eateries near by and a wee convenience store right beside the hotel.
The hotel has a lift that fits 4 people (or 2 with bags). It takes you to the floor before the roof terrace, but you have to walk up the final flight of stairs to the roof bar. The view is amazing!!!
Breakfast is adequate and the dining room tidy and clean. It doubles as a day lounge where you can help yourself to tea/coffee/hot chocolate, water and biscuits.
Our rooms were two adjoining rooms 403&404. A side view out the window and plenty of space for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Fridge and safe in room and effective air con. Very comfy bed. Good soundproofed windows.
The staff were all very helpful, advising us of the current strike action and where to avoid.
A lovely hotel - very good 3 star - as good as some 4 stars I have stayed in!
