“Centrally located”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Centrally located hotel and the Akropoli subway station is 2-5 minutes walking distance.

Step out of the hotel and take a left and go left again to Acropolis/Parthenon and Acropolis museum in just 5 minutes.
Step out of the hotel, take a left and then a right to go to the temple of Olympian Zeus and the gate of Herodotus.

Although I would have appreciated an email about how to commute to the hotel at least a day before my travel and not after my arrival to the hotel (I had sent an email 3 days before my travel).

Lifts are a bit old style with a door but that is fine.
Rooms are neat and clean and spacious. I had a balcony too on the 5th floor. No view of the Acropolis though. Comfortable beds. Flat screens and tea/coffee making facility in the room.

This hotel participates in the Greek breakfast initiative by the Hellinic chamber of hotels but the hot stuff is very basic (served from 7-10am). only 2 kinds of fruits- more options will be appreciated.

Staff is very friendly and helpful in the entire hotel.
Cost is a bit higher....in general in Athens as compared to other European cities....especially from end June-mid Sept....so, accordingly plan your vacation.

Lots of restaurants around the hotel and souvenir shops too. I suggest that you buy souvenirs in Monastiraki area.

I stayed at the Hotel in May 2013 for 5 nights. The location is excellent to roam the city, walking distance from most of the attractions and 2 minutes from the metro station.
Rooms are good, our double bed was 2 mattresses, which was fixed once we asked for a single mattress. Staff is courteous and helpful.
Breakfast spread was excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a single mattress double bed in advance if needed

Great choice if you are looking for a place in the middle of things! It was roomy, clean and breakfast was great. I had a balcony on the third floor.

I was so very close to the Parthenon and the markets. Lots of places to eat. Public transportation was very close by (though I did use a taxi for the airport). I even went to one of the beaches near town for the afternoon.

This was a layover on my way to Crete.

This is a standard small hotel. The staff (Michael) was very helpful during our stay and by answering emails prior to our visit. They arranged a one-day cruise of 3 Greek Isles for us and it was excellent with transport to and from the boat included. The breakfast was sumptuous even by American standards! The room was good with good amenities. Try to stay on the upper floor and get a room with a balcony. The location was great and you can walk to everything, the Parthenon, the new museum, lots of cafes, the changing of the guard at the parliament building, the botanical garden, etc. Good internet.

Room Tip: Top floor with balcony makes the room seem more spacious. Rooms are generally quiet.

I booked this hotel because reading the comment and the promotion at that time is hard to decline , for total 5 night I stayed there only EUR 250 ( they have pay 2 get 1 free night and also a disc as well )
Location : is pretty good , near the parthenon
Hotel : is pretty old though and the room also feels outadated but still acceptable
With this price I can not complain ;-) and it s include breakfast as well

I would rate this hotel only two stars but for its location. Right around the corner from the Plaka, it's ideal for exploring. Rooms are small and dated, hotel is dated. Free wifi is a plus. Hotel is probably worth only 60 percent of the price anywhere else, but because of location they can charge what they do. Staff is very nice and helpful. Bar area is nice for a quick beverage.
