This hotel is not far from the old town and in a calm area. The staff are very helpful and welcoming and the amenities at the hotel are quite good. There is a roof top pool beside the breakfast room which has wonderful views of Athens. The breakfast is fresh and there is a good variety.
The room that I had was very dark. Indeed it made no difference whether it was day or night as the room looked out onto a courtyard where very little light got in. I had to keep the light on all of the time. I would recommend asking for a room at the front or the side of the hotel if you are going to be spending time in your room.
If you are arriving at the international airport, taxis have a set fare of 35€ and In Town they use the meter. Be wary if taking a taxi from the old town that they don't over charge, some will put the meter on, others won't. The hotel has very reliable taxi drivers out front and their fairs are metered.
