This hotel is quite small, but well managed. Our room was reasonably spacious, the staff were very friendly and informative, as well as flexible (they allowed us a very late check-out). The location, in the Embassy district, allows walking access to central shopping and touristic areas. We took a taxi to the Acropolis, then walked back, through the market area. If you don't stop to eat or buy stuff, the walk would take about 30-40 minutes.

We were very pleased with all aspects of this hotel. It is a bit difficult to find the exact street. Maybe the best would be to arrive at the nearest metro station, then just hop in a cab (ask them how much it will be to that address - you could check this out with the hotel ahead of time to see how much a taxi should be from a certain metro station nearby to their hotel). Note: The street seems to end but it simply winds around a bit and is nice and quaint and pleasant a street.
If you stay there, one day, arrange a taxi to nearby Kolonaki and ask driver to take you to nice trendy street in Kolonaki. Kolonaki is the best area of Athens, TRULY worth strolling.

We stayed here late May, 2012. Hotel was 96 euros, so not the cheapest but not a lot. It had two real saving graces: First was that it was very quiet. We spent most of our time when not sightseeing sitting on our balcony facing out from the back of the hotel which opened out onto an area of mature trees (trees not in public parks are RARE in Athens). The effect was positively tranquilizing at the end of a day in Athens big street noise.

The second was the breakfast, which in addition to the ever-present Greek items, included scrambled eggs (not cooked to dryness as is typical in Greece) and Canadian bacon. The coffee was freshly brewed and delivered by a waitress, not the typical self-mix instant in hot water or the hours-old grog out of a dispenser. There were tasty bakery items such as chocolate filled croissants. So you got the best of two worlds: the Greek sights and bustle during the day and a few international creature comforts when you got back to the hotel in the evening.

So, no, you DON'T have to endure the inpersonality and size of a Hilton or Marriot to have some creature comforts in Athens.

We booked this break, and paid for an update to a 'deluxe' room. The website and hotel booking details stated that deluxe rooms had 'the same as a standard room and in addition included a balcomy, robes and slippers'. We had none of these in our room and popped down to reception. They said that not all deluxe rooms had balconies - so I showed them THEIR own brochure that was in the room. They would not move on this, so I said I would contact the on-line agent we had booked with and recommend they are removed from the listings. We then went out for a walk, and on our return were upgraded to a junior suite. A pity you have to fight for what you have paid for. The suite was spacious, but hiddley piddledy. Furniture was put here and there, and clearly had not been bought specifically for that room. Breakfast was adequate, and the breakfast room was far too small to accommodate the guests. Reception staff often grumpy (except for one very nice lady). The bed was very comfortable indeed, the hotel was clean, and very conveniently located. However, I do struggle to see how it achieved its 4 star status.

Room Tip: Do not pay for an upgraded room as it's not always forthcoming. Standard rooms do not have individualised air conditioning and are very warm.

I stayed for a week with my family (2 rooms). The rooms (we had junior suites) were of a good size and clean with reasonable facilities. Bathrooms were modern although the shower in my bathroom was over the bath and it was impossible to get the shower head to stay pointing in the right direction! The one in the other room was fine. The wi-fi was good all the time we were there. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and the reception staff spoke good English and were friendly. Beds were large although a little over firm for my taste.

As others have said the lift is tiny and the photos of the front of the hotel are very deceptive. I've taken another which is more accurate!

The worst aspects ware that there is no real view either front or back of the building and although the temperature in the room we had at the back of the building was fine (we could get the room to be as cold as we wanted), the room we had at the front of the building was always stuffy and too warm, even in April.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the building - the ones at the front are too hot.
