This hotel has the potential to be 5/5 but they just aren't there. There are charges for ameneties most hotels include, 5 euros (per device) for Wi-Fi and I don't remember the exact charge but I think it was 5 euros for 15 minutes in the hot tub. I have NEVER stayed in a hotel that charges to use the hot tub. My husband and I were looking forward to the hot tub and would have even paid the fee but we went to check it out and it was not hot, luke warm at best...so glad we didn't pay first. And then there was the room. It was stuffy, hot and humid for 2 days. I thought the AC wasn't working so I called the front desk and they informed me that the AC wouldn't run because it was still considered the "winter season" so only the heater would work. I was confused. If it was still the winter season, why wasn't the hot tub hot? The next day we left early to explore the city and when we came back the AC was woking and our room was cool! Maybe we weren't the only ones calling the front desk. Decent breakfast included too!
LONG STORY SHORT: Great location, you cannot beat it. It's close (within walking distance) to Metro station, Acropolis and the Plaka. Good breakfast. Just know that you might have to pay for some ameneties which are usually included.
