We booked three rooms here for a Saturday night in mid August. the location is perfect for the Acropolis, New Acropolis Museum and the shops, restaurants and cafes of the Plaka and Monastiraki. I'm sad to say we didn't venture further as we had only 24 hours and its was extremely hot.
The hotel staff were helpful, gracious and efficient, rooms were a decent size, modern and cool, rather minimalist in style, with little balconies offering good views of the temple of Zeus on one side and the Parthenon on the other. Buffet breakfast on the roof level restaurant combines Continental and American options and is pretty good quality.
If air-conditioning and being able to walk to the key sites are your chief objectives, as ours were, you simply can't fault this hotel.
