Had I planned the details of this trip myself, I would have never chosen the Stanley. Its whereabouts (Karaiskaki square, Metaxourgeio, Athens) is considered to be an urban run-down neighbourhood... Nevertheless, the trip organizers insisted on the quality of the establishment and they were right! And the area prooved to be very central, clean and quite safe, although definitely slum...
The hotel quality was suprisingly high. Nice, clean, renovated rooms (ask for a 7th floor no-smoking room). Nice reception area and roof garden area viewing the Acropolis. Friendly service.
I had 3 breakfasts, 1 lunch and 2 dinners there. Breakfast and lunch were poor. Dinner was very good.
The subway station is just infront of the hotel, so is a taxi piazza.
The Stanley is a hotel I would consider again as a budget, value for money stay in Athens.
