“First Visit to Athens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

Nice hotel, cosy room, bright natural lights, large balcony, facing the Temple of Zeus. A very pleasant stay, good value for money and good location. The only things is the room does not come with kettle and breakfast is the same everyday, a little too monotonous for a 7 days trip.

Room Tip: Choose room with balcony, though paying a little more, you would enjoy it.

Situated between the Temple of Zeus and Acropolis, this hotel is an ideal location. Not a 5-star resort experience, but then who wants to spend their time in hotel when you are in Athens. Most of the places like the Olympic stadium and the museum ( which comes on way to acropolis itself) are just walking distance.
If you think the hotel rates on the travel sites are expensive, just call the hotel telephone no and they will further reduce the cost.Ask for higher floor room with acropolis view.. its experience is just so awesome at night..it may just take your breath away ;-)

The location, panoramic rooftop views, breathtaking Acropolis lit and glowing at night convinced us to stay here. It was a very good choice. The breakfasts and dinners were all
served from the rooftop terrace and gave us a wonderful feeling of the proximity to the
cultural sights. On one side is the Acropolis in all its glory and on the other side the
Temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Arch. There is nothing to criticise.

Room Tip: choose a room away from the noisy highway.

We did some serious research before picking this hotel. We wanted a great view, a good neighbourhood, nice and soft beds, high service and a modern looking room. Furthermore the room was cleaned and bedlinnen and towels changed everyday! The breakfast was wat we looked forward to every night! We had a superior room on level 6 with view at zeus' temple, during the day the street was filled with noisy traffic, but at the evening it was hardly noticable. We had a perfect stay!

The location of this hotel is very good. Just a short walk to Acropolis. Subway (metro) station is 200 m away. Extraordinary view from the roof restaurant - you can the entire city - from Acropolis to the Pireus Harbour. The regular rooms are clean, not too large, unfortunelly. Most of them (at least the ones one our floor) had no view (a small window to an ventilating interior space). The hotel has a free parking area (underneath the building) - which is an advantage when you are by car in Athens.

The best aspect of this hotel is its central location. It is a short cab-drive from Syntagma square, a short walk from Acropolis and a stone's throw away from Temple of Zeus. With the Acropolis metro station being very close by, this hotel is well connected to all major sights in Athens. For a higher price, you can get a room with a view of Temple of Zeus or the Acropolis. The terrace restaurant has great views of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus. Breakfast is served in this restaurant, so you can enjoy the morning view. We had booked a room with view of Acropolis in Sep 2013 and it costed us around EUR 200 per night.

A satisfactory room, but very small, great central location, with spectacular view from roof top lounge. Nice breakfast, adequate but a little standoffish service overall. We had an enjoyable stay and were generally happy with our accommodations.
