Nice boutique hotel in perfect Athens location. The rooms are standard European size, the furniture is new(ish), the beds are comfortable with quality linens, there is a mini bar in the room, and balconies with a table and chairs are a nice touch. The street facing rooms have much larger balconies than the Acropolis facing rooms (but then you have the Acropolis view!). The staff is knowledgeable and professional, and will arrange for easy and reasonably priced airport pickup. The breakfast is adequate but not spectacular, the lobby bar/cafe/restaurant has good food at reasonable prices, although the wait staff is a little grumpy, but the real gem is the roof-top terrace. With two jacuzzis, potted olive trees, fountains and the lit-up Parthenon, it is the perfect spot for evening drinks (the rooms service will bring drinks and snacks to you). With the new Acropolis Museum opening in June 2009 one block away, this hotel's location will become even more desirable.
