My husband I stayed at the Acropolis Select for a week in early May. He was in meetings most of the day, while I spent my days wandering Athens. The hotel receptionist was a wonderful sounding board for places to go and how to get there. She called Vougliameni Lake to double-check hours for me, wrote down bus stops so I wouldn't miss them, and let me practice my very limited Greek, explaining nuances of words, and cheerfully correcting my miserable pronunciation.
The hotel's location is amazing for the price - blocks from the Acropolis, the Acropolis museum, lots of great cafes, and two central metro stations. The breakfast was great - wonderful Greek yogurt, an unending supply of muesli, thick marmalades, good coffee. And the small elevated bar area was a fun place to end the day, chatting with others there for meetings, practicing Greek with the amiable bar-tender. The street is narrow, and the hotel is modest in appearance, but a very safe, pleasant home-base for time in a very memorable city.
