We enjoyed our stay in this modern boutique hotel. Staff was friendly, food in restaurants was good, service was excellent. The cheerful staff always responded positively to our requests, and we ended up having quite a few dinners on the rooftop bar during our one-week stay. Good selection of wines there with great views of the city. We ended practically every day of walking and touring Athens and environs at the rooftop bar.
The rooms were comfortably equipped and clean, with a big in-room safe. The hotel is close enough to Syntagma Square that most major sites and museums are within easy walking distance.
A minor negative point is the proximity of the Russian Orthodox church next door with its loud periodic bell ringing, but these episodes are of short duration. I'm struggling to think of more negatives but frankly it's hard. Maybe we were just lucky and had a smooth stay here, but my impression is that the hotel administration puts a lot of effort into pleasing its guests. I would especially recommend this hotel if you are travelling with children, as the decor is unique, the staff is friendly, and there are some movies for children in the in-room entertainment.
