Stayed in this hotel for six days last July 2013.
Picked this hotel based on the location, price (during peak season) and trip advisor reviews. As everyone has mentioned this is just a walk away to the shopping and dining spots.
We didn't give the breakfast much thought when we were there but after staying on a much higher rated Santorini and Paris hotel in the same trip, we couldn't stop thinking of and raving about this hotel's croissants. The hotel also had one of the good breakfast options we've had on the trip. Staff are very friendly, and quite helpful in booking dinners for us.
- Few minutes walk to a lot of dining options
- Few minutes walk to Plaka
- Few minutes walk to Monastraki
- No need to take a cab to the Acropolis entrance...just walk:)
