This is a very simple and straight-forward accommodation. Just a fantastic value in a very expensive city.
I stayed twice. The first time I was on the fourth level (3rd floor European numbering). My room was tiny, but the balcony was huge. It was quiet and I felt very safe. There was a fridge in the room and a decent bath/shower. The bed was really hard, but there was a cushion in the closet that made it more comfortable.
The second time I stayed, I was recognized by Christos' mom and put in a room on the first floor behind reception. (I'm 66 and not as agile as I used to be.)
This was the strangest/cutest hotel room I've ever seen. The main bedroom was spacious and comfortable, the little bath/toilet room was tucked under the stairs and I can't imagine any adult showering in that space; there was a little space with a fridge and farm house sink; then a light well with table and chairs decorated like an outdoor cafe. I still don't know quite what to say about this.
In all, I would go back to this hotel enthusiastically. It's reasonably priced for the great location. You just need to know what you're getting when you go there. There are no drinking glasses in the bathroom and very few electrical outlets. The hand rail for the stairs is on the narrow side of the spiral staircase and makes it a bit frightening if you're older and not completely steady. Wifi was good.
If you walk to the corner as you leave the hotel, turn right and then turn right at the next intersection to find a general merchandise store on the right and a grocery store on the left. If you turn left at the end of the cul-de-sac and left again on Syngrou, there are two bakeries that will make you happy to be alive.
