The hotel is very well decorated with modern thematic rooms. Acropolis, museums, Syntagma, monasteries, Plaka, everything in a walking distance. The breakfast is one of the best I had in a hotel, ever. They offer freshly squeezed orange juice. The restaurant is very good too. Try the rooftop bar/restaurant with a breathtaking view of Athens and the Acropolis. This hotel is neighbor to bars and downtown restaurants. Actually you will not hear any noise from those bars, but there is an annoying trash bin just outside at Lamachou St., where staff uses to discharge empty bottles from 1 AM.

The hotel is very well situation for easy walking distance to most places, Plaka, acropolis, parliament buildings and kolonaki. The hotel itself is a delight to the eyes from the leather-look finish to the walls to the eccentric array of the old bed frames on the wall. The restaurant " tree of bed spindles" was eye catching and outstanding as an art piece itself. The rooms were inspiring, clean fresh linens and very comfortable beds. The breakfast was substantial and the fresh baked goodies some of the best I have eaten in Europe . Well done!!

Loved this hotel, all the quirkiness of the wall finishes, pictures and furniture. It's in a great location for sightseeing and restaurants. It is very comfortable. My only complaint would be that the mirrors are dim light it’s hard to see putting on makeup, but …. you’re on holidays so not so important to look glamorous!
We were on one of the higher floors so we had a view which was great.
Roof top dining was fabulous and we also sat up there for drinks and nibbles one night.

Room Tip: On a higher floors have views

Just spent 2 nights at this hotel in Athens. The location is ideal - walking distance to all the main sites. Each and everyone of the staff go out of their way to give good and professional service. The hotel is modern and funky with bright well equipped rooms and superbly comfortable beds. Great breakfast with a good choice and delicious pastries. Highly recommended.

Lovely modern hotel, with great views, great food, and wonderful service.

Just a short walk from the metro. Within walking distance to all attractions even for 58+ as we were.

I loved the decor, the linnens and food.

I did not like the maid walking in the room after a mere knock!

I did not like the lighting in the bathroom, way too dark.

I did not like the street noise at night.

Room Tip: try to stay in a room away from the busy street, it stays going most of the night.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights during our 3 week European vacation. This was the best place we stayed. I highly recommend this hotel for their fantastic customer service, beautiful, modern, and tidy rooms, tasty breakfast, and good location.

Some of the highlights of our stay:
- Free breakfast was outstanding. There were lots of options including eggs, cappuccino, pastries, fruit, and cereal.
- We had a 6 AM flight. Delicious to go boxes of breakfast were provided by the staff at 4 AM!
- Front desk staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
- The Business center was very nice and came in handy as we needed to print some directions.
- Delicious chocolate truffles served after they tidy the room in the evening
- Clean and modern rooms with up to date technology
- Water was served upon our arrival from the nearby metro station. We had some difficulty finding the Hotel and this was greatly appreciated.

Some things I thought could be improved:
- Hotel signage walking from the Syntagma Square Metro stop along Fillenon could have been better. The main Hotel entrance is from the side street Navarachou Nikodimou.
- The procedure for free breakfast was a little confusing at first. Do I ask the hostess who seats us for eggs or the waiter who serves us?

Stayed here 11 nights in a superior room on the 6th floor.

Great location.

Comfortable rooms. Clean, bright. Funky design. Very quiet.

Plush bedding.

Some of the most hospitable hotel staff encountered to date.

Breakfast buffet is amazing- lots of variety of healthy and nutritious foods.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room on reservation
