What makes this hotel so special is the proximity to the centre of town - in particular the Acropolis Museum. It is also only about 200m from the Akropolis metro station which meant it was super easy to get out to the airport (about 50 mins - make sure you time it right though, as the trains only run to the airport every 30 mins, from Syndagma). The photos on the hotel website make it look a LOT more glam than it is, as it is actually a bit grubby round the edges! The painted part of my bathroom wall (ie. above the tiles but below the ceiling) was all mouldy and it is a bit noisy as it is in a residential street and there were generally quite a few people clattering around. Didn't bother me as I wear ear plugs. Dinner (we had a group meal) was almost dauntingly large in terms of portion sizes, and was average/good rather than fantastic. However, the location is very good, the service was really sweet and helpful - as it was across Greece and I would recommend it for someone on a budget. I stayed on a group tour so didn't get to choose the location but I gather it is a big favourite with groups as its location is so good. It may also be more reasonably priced than the other hotels on my trip so I shouldn't ungenerously compare apples with pears. Rooms were a bit small but were still fine. To its credit it was the only one of our 5 hotels to have a kettle, tea, coffee and cups in the room - yay! If I come back with my husband I shall try for the Grande Bretagne!
