The hotel is on the street where you come out of the Sygrou-Fix metro--just turn right and go down two blocks--very easy to get to. And the metro line is the same one for the main tourist attractions, so it's a quick ride to get to all those places.
My room was right next to the maids' closet but I was never disturbed by any sounds even though I'm a light sleeper (and use ear plugs, but they only muffle the noise a bit).
The shower is a half-tub size, but I found it to be more than adequate, especially as it has a convenient built-in seat to use if you don't want or need to take a full stand-up shower. And it has another built-in ledge that you can also use to sit on, or whatever. (And from my visits to Greek homes, this is their typical size shower.)
My only complaint is that, although there is WiFi in the room, the signal strength is not strong enough so I had to come down to the lobby in order to use the internet. I noticed that there were others sitting in the lobby using their devices to connect, so I presume they had the same problem. There are two computers available in the lobby, but they were always occupied.
Despite the internet issue, I really liked this hotel and would definitely recommend it.
