“Convenient, a good place to start a visit to Greece.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Well located with great views. The rooms were pleasant and the balconies looked over many Athens landmarks. A mid-evening drink at the rooftop bar, complete with free wifi gave us the chance to post some early pix of floodlit temples and city scenes. The staff were helpful and efficient. The breakfast buffet was excellent with staff on hand to cook to order.
Just next to the hotel is a great street for restaurants and a stroll among the sights with car hire places just around the corner.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights.

Very convenient to all the Athens center sights and Plaka. Hoho bus stops right out front.

Staff is very good; rooms are a bit small but adequate; with nice bathroom/shower.

Roof top bar/restaurant is very good; with great views. In the evening for a table facing the Parthenon you may need dinner reservations.

We stayed on the 6th floor facing Temple of Zeus. Street noise was not a problem.

Highly recommend this hotel when visiting Athens.

The location could not be better: from one side you overlook the Temple of Olympian Zeus. From the other side, you look up to the Acropolis. Service was fantastic: the hotel was full, but they had our room cleaned and ready for us by 10:30 in the morning when we arrived. Rooms are modern, and beds were very comfortable. You can easily walk to many sites, including the Acropolis, Plaka, and surrounding neighborhoods - we never even took the Metro. We had an early departure before the breakfast opened, and they had to-go breakfast packed for us for our trip. Would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends, and will stay here again!

Room Tip: We actually chose an interior room - the views from the rooftop bar/breakfast area were wonderful an...

Excellent location with views of the Acropolis from one side, and Hadiran's Gate and Temple of Zeus on the other. Close enough to walk to the Plaka - great for taverna choices, strolling & shopping. Large comfy room, bath, and balcony if you are on the 7th floor. I would bookmark this one!

Room Tip: 7th floor balcony rooms

We stayed with some friends 5 months ago. All were excellent, superb food, service. Rooms need a bit of local decoration. Apart this excellent.
I suggest the hotel for all occasions.

Thank you staff!!!

Spent 4 nights at this hotel upon arrival and one night before heading home and could not find fault. The rooms are on the smaller size as other ta members have commented however little time was spent in the room as the location is the big advantage to this hotel. Overlooking both temple of Zeus and the Parthenon and within easy walk of all the other big attractions. Hop on-off bus a few doors away and plaka district and restaurants easy walk. The rooms whilst compact were clean and tidy. We were on the 4th floor overlooking Zeus and the road noise was not a problem. Breakfast buffet was small but adequate, did not have dinner at the restaurant but did call in for a few drinks and watched the sunset. Would definitely stay at this hotel again. If you are claustrophobic take the stairs not the elevators :) Wifi free and good from the restaurant and lounge but no reception in the rooms.

Room Tip: Level 4 overlooking Zeus amazing.... the memories are still fresh in my mind

This hotel had a great location within walking distance to all the sights in the centre of the Athens. The views from the rooftop for breakfast of the acropolis and the temple of Zeus were amazing. The rooms have balconies, but for the best view you need to book a room at the front of the hotel, although the back rooms have no street noise. The hotel has been tastefully redecorated and I liked the touch of having lavender on the bed upon arrival. My only complaint being the air conditioning was not working efficiently. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the front of the hotel for better views, but a back room for less street noise.
