This is a nice little hotel tugged away one lane behind the main road and so, relatively quiet at night. It is also just 2-3 minutes from the mass transit and less than 10mins walk to the touristy Plaka area, which is also next to the Acropolis. The lane where the hotel is is relatively deserted at night but we did not feel any sense of unease at all. There are also a few cafes and a fast food joint just around the corner, one with rather decent Italian food too, if you get tired of the traditional Greek sandwich or roasted meat.
Room is typically small but clean and well maintained. We were lucky to get a high floor with a view of the Acropolis, which is lighted up at night. The breakfast buffet was more than sufficient and the dining room well decorated and pleasant.
As a bonus, if you are planning to visit the Temple of Poseidon, the bus routes along the main road parallel with the hotel's lane. Altogether this hotel is very decent value.
