This is not a high end hotel, but it's great. Wonderful location, amazingly helpful staff, sensational views from rooftop bar. Rooms are not grand, but comfortable. There is also great hairdresser next door, and little grocery store that sells everything.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing Acropolis, but if you're not lucky don't worry, view from roof is sensational.

Dear MrsWaterhouse,

It is most rewarding to know that you were happy with everything about your stay, from the "wonderful location", "sensational view",but most importantly I am delighted that you were impressed with our services and staff. Thank you for staying with us.

The location of this hotel is ideal - near the Metro, near all the small shops , bars and restaurants, and near the big shops too if you want them as well. The views to the Acropolis and across Athens from the rooftop are stunning, and the rooms (and shower) were very well appointed and comfortable.
The staff couldn't be more helpful. OK Athens is over-run with tourists and as a result English is spoken everywhere - so if you want the authentic Greek experience - don't visit Athens.

The breakfast buffet is great - with all day free coffee-

One tip - if you're going to do the Parthenon - go at 8 am to get ahead of the horrendous crowds , and you may get the sight of the army guard troop raising the huge Greek flag, and singing their National Anthem.

Room Tip: If you can get a room with a view of the Acropolis , great - but if not - go up to the roof and lounge around in the Bar / terrace area.

Dear Neil H,

Our team is thrilled to know that their efforts is appreciated and raved on TA.
We are glad to read that you found in our hotel exactly" what you needed. The bathrooms were renovated last year as well as the beds. As for the breakfast let me add for other TA readers, that we are offering more than 50 items freshly prepared daily and that we have also early morning departure breakfast. The experience of the early visit of the Acropolis is indeed an experience.
Thank you for the tips to other clients. Hope to see you again on a stop over to Athens.

I would describe the rooms as 'cheap and cheerful'. Very basic linens, 'dorm-style' beds (ie: not the most comfortable.) Shower was great, though. What would make me stay here again was the EXCELLENT service, the fantastic rooftop deck, the stellar location, and a great, full (and hot) breakfast included in the rate. This is definitely not a luxury hotel (3 stars is pushing it), but the staff, location, deck and breakfast make it a spot I'd stay in again.

I cannot speak highly enough of this beautiful small boutique hotel in the heart of The Plaka. The view from our room was incredible looking straight out at the Acropolis just stunning. Close to wonderful ancient sites, great restaurants, etc. Breakfast was great too - look no further for accommodation Athens at a very reasonable cost .

Very nicely located in the plaka. We were able to walk to markets, restaurants & sight see.
The rooms are small but clean and we'll maintained.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. When we arrived they brought a small bottle of wine to the room to welcome us.
Do not miss the roof top patio. The views are incredible and it's very enjoyable to sit and watch the sun set. They have a bartender on the roof so you can also enjoy a cocktail!
Breakfast was great. Lots of choices both hot & cold.
We would stay again.

Dear Pink_bootz,

Thank you so much for the high praise of our hotel and your positive comments for our "great" breakfast, "friendly" staff, cleanliness and of course the "incredible" view. I am sure the sun set is a memory that you will keep for long, but I mostly hope that you will stay with us again. Kind regards
