A nice hotel in a good location, but a very run down neighborhood. We were able to see the Acropolis from our balcony and other interesting things as well, shown on the attached photo. I found the dirty seedy surroundings rather interesting .It didn't put me off, since I felt safe and sometimes I enjoy the colorful reality of the life.
In the hotel we had a quite spacious room with comfortable bed,and bathroom with amenities, hairdryer, etc. Everything was clean, the breakfast was nothing special, but good, the view from the breakfast room was stunning, and the staff was friendly.
In addition, because the Plaka was just a stroll away, you can enjoy nice dinners in one of the rooftop restaurants.
I would go back again.
Our only problem was to find the hotel.
