“Great Location and Excellent Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Great location in Athens within walking distance of shops, cafes, restaurants and the Acropolis. We chose a room with a balcony (we are smokers) instead of a room with a view and the balcony was perfect. Small but it served its purpose. The room was clean and the staff friendly. The view from the rooftop bar (closed when we were here most likely due to low season or weather) was outstanding. We were able to walk to the Acropolis but it's a little tricky and some of the steps up are pretty steep. It was a fun adventure just figuring out how to get there.

Good find in Athens, I'd stay there again.

This hotel is in a fantastic location in the middle of the Plaka area of Athens. It is close to shops, cafes and restaurants and and easy walk to Syntagma Square. Our room was excellent, comfortable and clean and had a view of the Acropolis which is spectacular to see lit up at night. The continental breakfast provided offered a good choice of food and the bonus of a lovely view from the dining room. The only negative I found was that the staff were not particularly helpful apart from one lady who was a trainee. Our fridge didn't work and she organised to have it checked. A man came and looked at it and said he'd be back soon but that was the last we saw of him so we didn't have the use of a fridge during our stay in what was unseasonably warm weather. However I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel and would definitely stay there again if I ever returned to Athens.

This hotel is in the heart of Athens, surrounded by shops and restaurants. Our room had a wonderful view of the Acropolis. Don't miss the rooftop "living room." Great place to have a drink while looking at the lit up Acropolis. Excellent staff who provided tips and little twists that were helpful. They would ask, "What do you plan today?" and then, hearing your plans, they would improve them. Very friendly, professional and helpful.This place is a winner.

Central Athens on the edge of the Plaka district with all its fascinating shops, stalls & cafes & with a view of the Parthenon all for less than £90 per night including breakfast! Then add a helpful & friendly staff who guided us on what to see & how to get there, as well as recommending good inexpensive tavernas, and you end up with excellent value! The rooms were not luxurious but spotlessly clean, good facilities, a comfortable bed & air con that worked, what more do you need? The 360 degree view from the rooftop was stunning; all Athens was there in front of you. If we ever go back to Athens this will be our choice of hotel.

I had a room with a view of the Acropolis. Nice view, especially at night (when it was lit up)!
The hotel was clean and comfortable. It was great, that free coffee and biscuits are available in the breakfast room throughout the day (till 17:30)!
Free wi-fi in the room!
Perfect location - near to the metro station, shopping street, lot of sightseeing places!

We had a room with a balcony of the sixth floor, so it was really great to be able to pop up onto the rooftop for an amazing view of The Acropolis, especially at night when it was lit up. The hotel was in an excellent location for bars, restaurants and cafes and transport. Lots of buzz. The Hotel was excellent value, clean and comfortable, and we thought great value too. The staff were very helpful. Sometimes we would go back to the Hotel after sightseeing, help ourselves to free coffee and biscuits, which are available throughout the day, and take it up onto the rooftop.Then go out again. Plenty of choice at breakfast, which was included in the price. Also free wifi in the room, which was great. Would highly recommend the Plaka

Room Tip: Room 606 was a good size and had balcony and easy access up one flight of stairs to rooftop with vie...

The room was pretty average if not a little on the small side. Overall it was clean and did its job. The real pros are the amenities: great breakfast (however I didn't really like the way they made scrambled eggs), free printing, free wifi, and free tea/coffee until the afternoon.
