We stayed at this hotel for our sightseeing in Athens. Could not have asked for a better location. Several major attractions within walking distance, including Plaka. It was wonderfiul to walk out of the hotel and walk right into a labyrinth of streets full of shops and restaurants. Our room faced Temple of Zeus. I could not resist taking pictures at sunrise and sunset right from our room balcony.
The rooms were nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked fine. Even though our room faced the busy main road, we did not hear any traffice noise. The roof top restaurant provides a great view of the Acropolis. During the night the view was absolutely stunning, with Acropolis lit up.
The buffet breakfast was more than adequate. The front desk is staffed with friendly and helpful people. It is not a luxury hotel, but it offers all the comforts combined with friendly service and the location that cannot be beat.
If I am visiting Athens again, I would have not hesitation in staying here again.
