We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel as we were not expecting much because of the reasonable price we paid and the fact that it was in central Athens. we were in the The lobby is very modern and inviting and the staff welcoming. It was renovated for the Athens' Olympics in 2004. There was an excellent buffet breakfast included.
We took the Metro from the Airport and had no problem reaching the hotel. There was a train change (but the signage is good) and then a 10 minute walk from the subway so don't take a lot of luggage. Investigate a 3 day pass. There are lots of cabs at the Airport also.
The rooftop patio provides a view of the city and the Parthenon above. The Acropolis is a 20 minute walk uphill from the hotel. The new Acropolis Museum is 3 minutes away,well worth a visit.
It was an easy walk to the Plaka area of Athens with many good restaurants.
The Archaeological Museum is a must especially if you are planning a trip the Peloponnese Peninsula and Santorini.
Try to visit the sites early in the day to avoid some of the tourist bus crowds.
We rented a car to go to the Peloponnese and driving from the hotel was not as bad as we had read about but you still need nerves of steel and lots of change for the toll highway.More
