By far, the best "feature" of the Attalos Hotel is location, location, location. It is just 2-3 blocks from Monastiraki Square (where the Metro is, among other things) and a couple of blocks from Syntagma Square. The Acropolis and Roman Forum were just a short 15 minute walk away also.
The rooftop bar is great; you get a very good view of the Acropolis from there. The cocktails, while not especially good, is a pretty good price (5 euros, if I remember correctly).
Some reviews said that their rooms were noisy, so we requested a room on the higher floors. We were on the 5th floor and we heard no street noise at all. (No view either... but it wasn't that big of an issue especially since we could just walk up to the roof for views.) Their rooms are pretty tiny, but fairly clean. Definitely adequate for our purposes. (We figured we wouldn't be in our rooms except to sleep.)
There is a restaurant in the hotel, but we didn't eat there because there are so many restaurants in walking distance. They also offer free internet... the computers are extremely slow, but it's definitely a plus that it is even offered.
If you're looking for a budget friendly, no frills hotel that is in a great location for sight seeing, definitely consider staying here!
