“Room with a view”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

We loved our stay here We were only in Athens for two nights, so this hotel with its view of the Acropolis on one side & the Temple of Zeus on the other was perfect. We had not hired a car so being able to walk to some of the major attractions of Athens was a big plus for us, we were able to walk to the Acropolis in less then 15 minutes. I particularly enjoyed taking breakfast on the rooftop, what a way to start the day. The staff were attentive, the room comfortable & clean, the position fabulous.

This hotel is in one of the best locations in Athens. Very easy to navigate around Athens, close to a lovely pedestrian area, close to the subway. Room was very nicely appointed with an excellent bathroom. Highly recommend the rooftop restaurant for dinner. Food was exceptional. Staff very polite and helpful.

We were happy from the minute we arrived. A lovely welcome at the front desk with a drink and a sweet treat was a first class surprise. Our balcony room overlooking the Temple of Zeus was well designed and modern - not a huge amount of room for luggage. A short walk around the corner and you can have a delightful dinner looking up at the Acropolis. Staying here in the old town was the best decision. We had comfort, views and easy pick up for any tours we chose to do.There was an ATM near by and a short walk to shops. We will stay here again and strongly recommend it. The breakfast with a view was amazing and the staff very helpful. You can see this hotel trys hard and does things very well. Don't worry about some street noise into your room the whole experience out weighs this by far.

Room Tip: Its worth paying a little more to have a balcony - overlooking the Temple of Zeus side was a great c...

Smiling and helpful receptionists. Small garage but locked. Nicely and modern rooms and bathrooms. Terrace restaurant a bit noisy and small but with a great view. Risotto to die. Location is great although really on a heavy traffic boulevard.

The location of this hotel was great. It was about a 5 min walk to the entrance of the acropolis, was located in the old town 'plaka' (so close to nearby restaurants). The first impressions of the room were average. It was a budget room (as said when purchased) with a twin bed and a beautiful view of the air conditioning units. The room however looked like it was modern and fresh. The fine details when cleaning were missed. The toothpaste cup (that was white) had toothpaste stains inside (and we had not used it), there was also toe nail clippings on the floor. When the room was serviced the cleaner threw out my partners empty drinking bottle (which we actually wanted, and as a result had to buy a new bottle). The pillows were too soft and we woke up with saw necks every morning (my partner and i have very different pillow preferences and we both disliked the pillows). However, the service was good, and they recommended a wonderful vegetarian resturant nearby called avocado. The breakfast view was amazing, with views of the acropolis. The breakfast was good. Overall, I would stay here, but i found it to be a high 3 star or a low 4 star hotel.

Wonderfully located and nice rooms. Had an amazing view. A sure-thing amongst high price Athens hotels! My husband and I stayed during the summer riots in 2011 and the staff made us feel safe. The hotel is located so close to everything a tourist in Athens would want to see. A memorable trip!

Room Tip: Make sure you have a room with a view!

I love this hotel and always stay here when I'm working in Athens. Superb location, friendly staff, clean, comfortable and modern rooms.

The roof garden is great - have an alfresco breakfast (weather permitting!) before work then a pre-dinner drink before heading out to Plaka for dinner, just a short walk away.

What's not to like? Staying here feels like a little holiday when you're in Greece on business.

Room Tip: Go for a room at the back, if you can.
