Stay here for 2 nights with my family of 4 including 2 kids. The location is great as it is close to major sites and metro station but still away from the tourist scene. Staff was very helpful and breakfast was adequate. Nice restaurants and grocery store in the area. Would stay again.

The staff at this hotel are excellent and we'd like to particularly commend Elena on her help in securing for us one of the few honest taxi drivers in Athens for our ride to the airport when mass transit went on strike. Otherwise, we found the hotel to be solidly average. Breakfast was a disappointment (though we had just come from Turkey where the breakfasts are spectacular, so the breakfast here may be the Greek standard), WiFi rarely worked, and our room had a very odd layout (but was perfectly clean/serviceable). There is a Spar supermarket one block away and the truly excellent Attikoi Bakery is close by on the corner next to the Ambelokipi Metro station. In contrast to other reviewers, we found the location to be a negative. In terms of access to the Metro and sights, it is perfectly fine. The location near the US Embassy was, surprisingly, a problem. The area is filled with Kevlar-wearing, assault rifle-toting security agents and is ringed with surveillance cameras (so street crime is probably rare) but there is a police-state feel and walking in front of the US Embassy (which is hard to avoid unless you only approach this hotel via the Ambelokipi Metro station) can be problematic, if not dangerous. The goons positioned inside the mirrored boxes that ring the US embassy feel emboldened/entitled to harass passers-by and, in our case, detained us for no particular reason. They demanded to see our passports which they then said they were "keeping" as they threatened to arrest us. When we asked what the basis was for being detained, we were told: "We Greek police, we do what want, you want jail?" They never did explain why they detained us and they did seem to be enjoying causing distress as they toyed with our passports. Whatever our offence was, it must not have been too serious as they allowed us to continue on to the hotel after several tense minutes. Needless to say, we went no where near the US Embassy after that experience (which occurred on the main avenue in front of the embassy during the middle of the day). While this experience was not the hotel's fault, we would not stay there again.

Stayed with small kids on 4 Bed room. All was as expected. Good breakfast. Near to metro station, just walking about 10 minutes. Free Internet.

Cons: Small elevator and parking for the car at additional cost

Great location. Quite, traffic free location with good security because of the American Ambassador's residence being next door. 5 minutes walk to two different Metro Stations, bus, or Trolly. Taverna's are close. The staff is very nice. They are the magic of this hotel. They are warm and friendly.. The rooms are a nice size. Breakfast is good and presented by a very pleasent chap. This hotel would rate higher except for the small things that are not up to snuff. For example, the temperature control thermostat in the room gives insructions on its operation but actually it is only an on/off switch for the fan. The heat or cooling is centrally controlled. We returned on a warm day and found our room to be at 31 degrees C. Trying to set the thermostat to cooling only made it worse. The front rooms get sun so they are hot while the back rooms can be very cold. If the back rooms are cold, they run the heat. You have to open the winow to cool the room a little if in the front. The floor in the room had poorly laid and well used artifical wood flooring with ends or sides of the strips of wood that stick up which can trip you, catch your foot or block moving a chair. The bath had broken tiles at the ceiling line. For two days there was no hot water. Towels are very rationed and limited. The bath smelled of sewage for our first 2 days but finally smelled better. The bath room is constantly damp even when tthe evacuation fan is run full time. The rooms allow one to hear people in adjoining rooms, people walking in rooms above your room and doors being closed. The halls could use a Hovering more often. There are other little draw backs on the same level. Back to nice items. Reception is pleasent as is the associated sitting area. The breakfast room is very nice. You are not a number here but a person, for the hotel is not large. The hotel is well supported by out of town Greeks along with non-Greeks. There is clear repeat business for the staff knows various guests. The staff makes the hotel. The staff is very nice. Because of the staff, room size and location I would return here. I can only give the hotel 3 stars because of the little failings. The staff is 5 star.

I stayed for five nights at this hotel, near Mavili Square, between the Ampelokipi and Megaro Mousiki metro stations.

The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was modest but tasty, and the staff were uniformly helpful and pleasant. The wireless Internet functioned 95% of the time, and I was able to download data at 200KB per second.

I have also had occasion to rent the conference room for one of the days I was staying, and the staff were very helpful and informative: they were prompt to respond to my inquiry about the conference room in advance of my arrival, provided all the relevant information (no nasty surprises!), and even waived the conference room fee as I was paying for a coffee break.

I may well pick this one again on my next visit to Athens.
