This property is a relief of modern comfort and design after staying at perhaps too many historic properties of quirky facilities. Plumbing that actually works!! Shower screen that doesn't leak!! Oh joy, oh bliss.
We stayed on the fourth floor with a pretty good view of the Acropolis and Parthenon which is gloriously lit up at night. The room was large, well decorated and well provisioned including a small kitchen sink area. Bathroom was large and well laid out.
The suburb it is in can quickly move into being seedy and a bit scary so stay on the main streets when roaming around. The hotel entry is on a narrow side street which had us tricked for a while. It's a short walk from the train station across a market place and busy street, but still reasonably convenient.
Breakfast is served on the sixth floor where the view to the Acropolis is completely stunning. The breakfast is quite good for Greece too with a reasonable selection of hot foods, breads and cereals.
The staff are excellent and very helpful, full marks to them.
