If you're looking to stay close to downtown Athens but don't want to spend downtown Athens hotel prices, this hotel is a good choice. There's a bus stop less than a five-minute walk from the hotel and a Metro train station less than ten-minute walk away. From the Megaro Moussikis Metro station, Syntagma Square is two stops away. The neighborhood around the hotel is safe during the day and night (the hotel is near the US Embassy). It's tucked away on a side street, but still close enough to a major road with restaurants and coffee shops. The hotel can easily be reached directly from the airport by using either the Metro train (45-minute ride) or public bus (50-minute ride). We took the X95 public bus from the airport, but we received some help from another passenger, since the bus stop names are not that easy to read from the bus. We were pleased with this hotel. The rate is fair for what the hotel offers. We liked the fact that breakfast and wi-fi Internet are included in the rate. Our room could use some improvements such as newer furniture and carpet, but it was clean, quiet and spacious. Room cleaning is a daily service and they did a nice job making up our room. The air conditioners worked great - especially important considering we visited during the summer. The wi-fi Internet worked well even on the top floor of the hotel - we were able to watch YouTube videos with no problems. The elevator is tiny, but at least there was an elevator! The breakfast consists of a modest selection of breads, cereals, pastries, fruits, vegetables, yogurt, and cold meats and cheeses. We saw families with young children staying in the hotel, but we noticed that it was quiet (at least on our floor). The staff was courteous and helpful and we felt welcome and pleased to stay here.
