Very glad we chose this hotel. It was in an excellent location close to Acropolis (15-20 minutes walk), Syntagma Square (10 mins walk) and in a nice area.

There are quite a number of good restaurants and amenities in Plaka, 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel.

We expected a very small room based on some of the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised - and our room was ready on our arrival even though we checked in early.

Staff were very helpful offering ideas on where to go and giving directions to attractions we wanted to visit.

There was a very good selection of food at breakfast.

The views from the rooftop terrace of the Acropolis and surrounding areas are great we even had a bit of a view of the Acropolis from our room.

Overall very pleased with this hotel and I'd strongly recommend it.

We are indeed in the center of all the main city attractions and rounded by the most famous restaurants and cafes. Great to hear you enjoyed our breakfast as we are continually enriching it with fresh local products and adding variety to keep the offering nutritious and exciting. We hope to have the chance of welcoming you back.

Each time we pass through Athens we stay here as it provides an excellent base for The Acropolis, Museum, Agora, Plaka and all central attractions, whilst being near Monastiraki Metro which has direct trains to the airport and Piraeus.
The roof bar provides views of the Acropolis which are unrivalled. We love to sit up there on a settee, sipping Ouzo watching the sun set and illuminations come on.
The breakfast restaurant is a bit frenetic with slightly over zealous staff clearing as you eat - well the do have to turn over tables several times each meal. The food is OK, although lacking in fresh cut fruit.
Rooms now all have free wifi.

Room Tip: Lift only takes 4. Maybe lower down if you're claustrophobic! Although the roof bar is on the 7th so....

Dear David C
Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor and for the great feedback for a second time on our hotel. It is great to read such positive comments! We are sorry about the incident with the trays, as the staff is always willing to serve you immediately in order to have more space on your table. As per your comment about the fresh fruits I would like to inform you that we are offering a variety of fresh fruits like cherries, oranges, apricots, apples and strawberries in a different combination each day, due to the fact of the market as we want every day to offer them fresh! We certainly hope to see you again when you are back in Athens!
Until next time! Best regards

Visited this hotel with two other couples on two occasions before and after sailing through the islands. All of our fellow travellers felt the same about this hotel.
The hotel was clean, had a great breakfast and great facilities. Our room had views of the Acropolis if you craned your neck over the balcony. But that wasn't really necessary because the view from the rooftop terrace was unforgettable. We had numerous visits to the rooftop terrace over four days, it was never too crowded and the bar up there was a bonus.
Staff were more than accommodating. In the morning guest relations staff assisted with tour advice and, when it came to head off on our sailing trip, they held our bags in storage for the week. Nothing was too much trouble. When we returned we had the same experience at the hotel and were very happy.
This is a great hotel. Sure there are 'finer or fancier' hotels but this hotel does what it promises and you can't ask for more.
I've got to say that I witnessed some guests talking down and almost barking at reception staff (the staff managed themselves very well). The manner in which some travellers treat people when visiting THEIR country, is unbelievable. If you don't like other cultures it might be best to reconsider your travel plans.

Stayed for 1 night. Room overlooked the Acropolis, so did the room top bar which was fantastic. Room walls were slightly thin allowing for neighbouring rooms. Great stay for a couple of nights. A range of restaurants are a short walk from the hotel.

This hotel is in an ideal location, couldn't be more perfect. The staff went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs. The breakfast is really nice. Coffee available all day. Free Wi-Fi in our room. The auto rental brochure at the desk is to be highly recommended. They delivered the car to us, then met us at the airport for return, couldn't have been easier. Also, about half the cost of the other car rentals that I checked.
