Only stayed one night for a weekend break but wished we had longer! Lovely hotel. Perfect location: 3 mins walk to the Acropoli metro station / 10 mins walk to the Acropolis / 2 mins to the Temple of Zeus (right across the road) and 5 mins to Syntagma Square (for the changing of the guard etc).
As we were arriving late and leaving early we booked an 'internal view' room which was spacious, modern and very clean.
The other reviewers are right - the restaurant has one of the best views of any restaurant. Breakfast itself was adequate - the hot options were a bonus - but the view was spectacular.
Fast wifi internet was available in the rooms (4€ per hour / 16€ for 24 hours etc) but free wifi is provided in the lobby and the restaurant/bar as are two free computers in the lobby bar with a printer - good for printing boarding passes etc
Hotel was happy to secure our luggage whilst we went out sightseeing (stored securely - not in a pile in the lobby like some hotels!)
If we return to Athens we will return to this hotel!
