The hotel is located in a central part of town, within easy walking distance to Monsatiraki Square, the metro, the Plaka, and many good restaurants and shopping. Though I have seen some folks complain that it is a seedy area, I disagree. My family of two adults and two children felt perfectly safe walking in this area day and night.
We had quad rooms for our two stays there. The first time we stayed there this was a two room suite with a double bed in one room and two twins in the other. The second time we stayed it was one room with a double bed and two singles all in the same room (this one had a nice balcony as well.) The bathrooms are clean and well appointed. Our first room had a huge bathtub with shower and the second was just a shower. The beds were comfortable, with extra pillows available in the closet. The rooms were very clean. We did hear folks in the hallway a few times, but I think it was only if they were especially loud. This is an older hotel, but it is well kept.
Considering that most Greeks eat only toast and coffee for breakfast, the hotel breakfast was extensive: meats, cheeses, sweet and savory pastries, hard boiled eggs, toast, butter, jam, Greek yogurt, honey, coffee, orange juice and milk that were kept well stocked as folks went through. The hotel also has a rooftop bar that boasts one of the best night time views of the Parthenon.
The hotel staff is friendly and helpful, responding immediately to any requests. It has two small elevators that work very well with little waiting.
All in all a great budget choice for central Athens.
