I've stayed at "The Ripper" four or five times in the past three years. Excellent hotel with great views from the breakfast area. Yes the area is dodgy but the rest district is only five minutes away and there's a safe route via Epikouros St., right then left. But what worries me now is the hotel has gone grey market. charging 5 Euros for AC. It's not on the hotel bill and of course in Athens it's beyond essential. The second time I stayed this summer I asked for it to be included in the same price I had paid through booking.com and it was--but if you check the sites you wouldn't know to ask. A shame as this hotel already has the area's rep working against it, and it's great value for money.
