After a bad start to our trip in Athens (nearly getting mugged in another area) this hotel was a blessing, it was in a great location to the main attractions in the city that you can walk to, and had a very safe feeling about it.
The rooms were good with nice little balconies overlooking the main street which is noisey and yet the rooms were still quite when the balcony doors where closed.
The garden bar on the roof is the hotels main attraction and is a wonderful place to start the night with a few drinks before heading down to the streets.
The breakfast was great with a good selection of everything you could want
The staff are nice and friendly and we could get our laundry and tours sorted from the front counter.
We were able to walk to the train station (approx 5-10min) from the hotel, to catch the train to the airport.
My partner and I love this hotel and would recommend it to anyone visiting Athens.
