Short version: Everything was perfect: the room (studio) was very nice and clean, the bed was comfortable, the staff was very friendly, helpful and just great, the breakfast was very good and the location was perfect. We didn't use the metro at all.
Long version: We arrived at about 10AM. The hotel staff welcomed us by offering offering us some water and a comfortable place to sit. The manager was very nice and gave us room although it was very early. The breakfast is half buffet - half serviced (by the nicest people). It has a variety of pastries, cheese, breads, cereals, beverages (including freshly squeezed orange juice) and hot drinks. You can also order any kind of eggs with plenty side dishes. You can basically eat any style you want.
We also traveled with a baby and due to our late flight were offered a room to freshen-up in the evening when we came back for our luggage (free of charge). We didn't have time to accept the offer, although it was greatly appreciated. If we're ever in Athens again there's no doubt we'll come back to this great hotel. The room was very big and clean, house keeping visits the room twice a day. The hotel has an unusual modern interior design, both in the public areas and in the rooms. It's really does look new :)
