“Budget hotel in great location”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This small hotel has a privileged location just a few blocks from Syntagma square, where most of the cultural and commercial activity is concentrated. The rooms are quite small, as well as the bathroom, but very clean. The Hotel is located near the Metro station that connects most of the places in town. There are also many international restaurants as well as typical Greek food. To sum up average hotel with excellent location at good price.

Room Tip: Some rooms has a priviledge view of the Acropolis, really breathtaking !! Ask for them.

The hotel is renovated, rooms if not luxurious are relatively spacious, new, clean, with everything you need, only bathrooms are very small. Good houskeeping, very friendly staff. Quiet, good night sleep. Excellent location only about 5 minutes walking distance from Syntagma square, 2 minutes from shopping and walking street Ermou, also Plaka, Acropolis and most of sights accessible on foot. For the special rate on bestwestern.com only 45 euro/single and 60 euro/double really bargain.

When I first saw the outside of the hotel I wondered where I'd come to, they were doing renovations.
However,the staff were friendly,the rooms were basic but clean.Would be great if they'd have tea making facilities in the room.
Great location if you cut across to Ermou Street and into Syntagma.
The breakfast was good.
We were woken by road works through the night but that was probably a one off occasion.

As previous reviewers have said, the location is excellent with easy walking to public transport, Syntagma Square, the Acropolis,shops, restaurants and the markets. The room was comfortable and the staff were friendly and obliging. Hopefully the external renovation at the front of the hotel have now been completed.It was perfect for our needs.

While basic and in a block undergoing renewal, this was a perfect spot for our exploration of Athens. It is within walking distance of the Acropolis and entire surrounding area. Shopping and restaurants are everywhere. The hotel room was clean, a good size, including a large bathroom (shower) for Europe. Included breakfast was quite good. Location is superb!

The hotel is in adequate location only 5 min walk from Syntagma. It is surrounded by many shops, cafes and restaurants so you feel safe and comfortable even at night. The reception area and elevators are really tiny and there are no hotel lobby ( i.e. you want to drink a cup of coffeу at night at the hotel). So do not expect spacious lobby, concierge, butler etc. on site. The rooms are of standard size with free wi-fi, mini-bar, safe and TV. Interiors are nice and beds are good for a proper sleep. Linens were new and of a good quality. The breakfast area is quite narrow (for 15-20 people eat out at one time) so could be jams if you occur to meet a group of tourists. The breakfast is very basic ( especially for Greece fertility), but all the food was nice. We stayed for 1 night only and can't complain as it cost us 55 euro. I would recommend the hotel for short breaks to Athens and for one's who do not need extras (as own restaurant, spa, gym etc.)

Staying here at this present moment. Very happy with the room as it is recently renovated. Walking distance to all of Athens and metro station.
Free Wifi and fast speed for all your needs. Great little noodle bar shop down the little lane and serves good Asian noodles.
Will recommend.
