The hotel is located in an area that looks residential. It's quiet and close to Acropolis and the Plaka. The lobby/bar area is modern and clean, the breakfast included in the price was very ample and good. Our room & bathroom were clean and comfortable; I remember the bed sheets being crisp, clean and very comfortable. The roof-top garden was comfortable with tables and chairs and the views were spectacular especially at night. Everyone at the front desk were friendly and helpful. We stayed 1 night on August 29 and again 1 night on Sept. 13, we paid about 40 Euro more for the Sept. stay (??). We took a taxi there from the airport and when we met others at the hotel that said they took the subway for 3 Euro each we tried it at the end of our trip...very easy, the subway is very close to the hotel; I would recommend if you have managable luggage. What I hated about this hotel is that I felt I was always being nickel & dimed. They charge 1 Euro per day for the safe, 5 Euro to use the roof-top hot tub for 15 minutes, we had 1 small soap in the bathroom. I would probably stay there again if I return to Athens mostly because I like the location. Their website pictures and information is pretty accurate.
