I had a two night stay here. Initially I was given room 55, the problem here was that there was scaffolding over the windows, with sacking covering, so no daylight at all. The room would be fine when this is cleared.
I changed rooms to room 43 which is a beautiful room. Very large with sofas, table and chairs and a huge bed. Excellent shower room. Very large shower.
View out over Monestraki Square and up to the Acropolis. There is a taxi rank right outside of the hotel and an ice cream parlour right next door.
There is a bit of noise from the square, no more than is to be expected from the centre of a big city. I was not disturbed by the noise from the roof bar.
The roof bar is very popular with locals and visitors alike. The hotel lifts are tiny, three people at a push without luggage, as a consequence there are often long queues for the lift, however hotel staff always ensure that hotel guests are given priority to lift access.
Breakfast is served on the terrace, good views over the Square. Breakfast choice is fine, neither special nor sparse.
I would certainly stay here again.
