We stayed for 4 nights (beginning of Dec last year) during our honeymoon to Greece and should say that the hotel is location is prime ... centrally located in Athens, convenient to the antiquities - Zeus temple and the Acropolis are walking distance, the Plaka, the new Acropolis Museum, the great Metro system and excellent restaurants. Breakfast in the roof garden with the view of the Acropolis is hard to beat. The range of items on the breakfast menu is great ... with sausages, fruits, cornflakes, croissants, pastries, different type of marmalade (that was our favorite :-) The evening dinner is a bit expensive but that shouldn't be a cause of worry as there are quite a few hotels on the way leading to the Acropolis (even opened at night) that serve very authentic greek dishes and are reasonably priced.
Rooms are of decent size, not to big but it didn't matter for us as we were out of the hotel for most part of the day. The rooms and the rest of the hotel facility are spotlessly clean with all the right amenities. The beds are cozy (we took a room on the 6th floor) and though there are quite a few housing building around, the night-time view of the Acropolis is a site to behold and it looks magnificent and great at night .... beautifully lighted up. Just when you step out of the hotel, you will have to navigate through heavy traffic as the hotel is situated right on the main street but what you get to see is a complex but well working transportation system that leaves you in awe ... on the same street you have cars, buses, trams, trains working in perfect symphony !!!
The staff are kind and helpful. Highly recommended hotel to stay if you're visiting Athens for a short trip!
