“Breath taking views to the Acropolis and Olympus.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Stay for the view as it's near all the major monuments but otherwise It's an average hotel.
We where checked in a smelly room and we made a complaint at the reception. They sent an engineer to our room only to be told that there was nothing wrong with the room. We went and spoke to the reception is and she gave us a better room with a view and a balcony. Why didn't they give us this room in the first place? Couldn't understand the staff.

This was a clean hotel within walking distance to the Plaka and Acropolis. Staff was friendly. The best part was the rooftop bar/restaurant which overlooked the Acropolis and Tempe of Zeus. We also had a view from our room. Would stay here again.

We spent 4 nights here and enjoyed our stay throughout, the view from the rooftop garden are breath taking, with the Acropolis on one side and Zeus Temple on the other.
Breakfast was a very good selection, and our room was very comfortable and was on the Acropolis side, so not so noisy but with ear plugs we slept fine.
All the main attraction's are with in walking distance.
Because of our late evening arrival we booked a Taxi through George Taxi & Limo, a bit dearer than the normal taxi service, but it was nice to be meet at the airport by friendly face.
Going back to the Airport we took the Airport Bus X95 from Syntagma Square.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Acropolis side are less noisy.

Location is AAA+. You can see the Acropolis from your bed on the Acropolis side of the hotel or the Temple of Zues (maybe 50 metres away) on the other.
Very central to Plaka with markets and fine dining and other ancient fantastic attractions.
Getting there by bus from the airport is super easy.
Rooms are clean and modern. Make sure you go tot the roof top bar for breakfast and dinner. You won't be disappointed with the magnificent views to say the least....................

Room Tip: Ask or book an upper room on the Acropolis side of the building. The 7th floor back rooms have a vi...

I'd certainly stay there again. Everyone nice. Rooms in the back, on higher floors have view of Acropolis and no street noise. Very nice breakfast. Fabulous dinners. Best Greek salad I've ever had. Not fancy but has everything we needed (and we are fairly demanding) Can walk to most places or easy access to wonderful subway. Really liked it.

Room Tip: While views toward Olympian Zeus are extraordinary, there might be bothersome street noise and how c...

Wonderful location, just aside the Acropolis. Hotel is new and well decorated, which are not easy to find charactheristics in Plaka. Breakfast with Greek yougurt and an unbelievable view to the Parthenon is definetely a plus. I do recommend!

Room Tip: Front rooms have view to the Zeus temple. Some of the back rooms have partial view to the Acropolis.

Good points: -

- Centrally located, within walking distance to local attractions.
- View from the balcony is good as it's directly opposite tge Olympian Zeus Temple
- Good variety of food at breakfast.

Bad points: -

- Noisy as the hotel is located on a main road.
- Room is tiny, we had trouble finding space to put our luggages ( and it was only 2 luggages )
