On the basis of the excellent location and okay reviews we had booked two stays here for either side of a week in the Greek Isles, but after the first night of the first stay cancelled the second stay and rebooked at another Athens hotel we had previously stayed in with friends. In contrast to every other accomodation we stayed in during four weeks travelling through Switzerland and Greece, staff here were unsmiling and seemed indifferent to our presence. Perhaps being in our early fifties we were outside the target demographic for the inn, but that has not been an issue in any other youth hostel or backpacker focussed accomodation we have stayed in in Australia, NZ or Switzerland. Our ensuite room was VERY small and basic, and while we could have put up with that we quickly grew tired of falling over each other and our luggage trying to move around the room, and knew that by accepting a less central location in Athens we could return to the other hotel and get a MUCH better room for the same price with staff who acted like they really wanted us staying with them, and where they were happy to store our luggage free of charge while we were on the islands (unlike here where it was going to cost us €2 per item per night).
