I stayed at the New Hotel in Athens in June 2012. I booked this hotel based on the previous reviews placed on Trip Advisor.
The hotel is situated about 2 minutes from Syntagma Square where there are good transport links to anywhere in the city. There is a sight-seeing tour bus stop at the square which is very convenient for jumping on and off when required.
The hotel is also very close to the Plaka (10min walk), which is a delightful area with many restaurants and shops, and comes alive at about 10pm at night.
The hotel staff were incredibly efficient, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a well situated hotel in the heart of Athens.
