My husband, daughter and I stayed here last August. The hotel is in a great location. It is close to a metro as well as within walking distance to the Parthenon. There is a pharmacy and a few restaurants scattered nearby as well as a small grocery store with a limited selection. Ask the front desk how to get to the grocery store since it’s not very large and not in an obvious location.
Our room was a decent size. The a/c worked okay as long as we kept it running even when we were not in the room. We were given two room keys when we checked in and in order to get the lights and a/c to come on in our room we had to insert one of the room keys into a docking type station in our room. We took both keys the first day we left the room and when we got back it was very hot and it took forever for the room to cool off. After that we left one key in the room in the docking station at all times. Our room had a small balcony but it faced what appeared to be someone’s apartment so there was no view. The bathroom was a shower/tub combo and our shower had plenty of water pressure and there was also plenty of hot water. The bathroom also came equip with a hairdryer. I don’t think the hotel provided any wash cloths (it’s common in Europe for hotels NOT to have wash cloths) but I always bring my own from home so it wasn’t an issue. The beds were very comfortable and the room was quiet. The hotel is located on a side street with little vehicle traffic and mostly pedestrian traffic so that really helped to cut down on noise. The wifi connection in our room was strong and it always worked great.
The breakfast at this hotel was very plentiful and it was included in the price of our room. It was the most plentiful breakfast that was included in the cost of a room that I have ever had in Europe.
The front desk staff at this hotel was great and they spoke excellent English. I had a minor medical issue and I needed to see a doctor and have a lab test done as a result and a woman named Yoda (which was told me was short for her very hard to pronounce Greek name) at the front desk made all the arrangements for me. She found a doctor’s office/lab that had staff that spoke some English and she set up the whole thing for me. She also helped translate. When I got to the lab there was a language barrier so I gave the person at the lab the business card for the hotel and the lab tech called Yoda and Yoda was able to translate for us which saved the day. Yoda was also able to help me with my prescription at the nearby pharmacy that I was given as a result of my lab test.
