This is a nice, chic hotel, but walk down the street it is on (Sophocleus st), in the direction away from Syntagma, and you soon find yourself in very unpleasant territory. Our taxi driver said the far end of Sophocleous st had the reputation of being the worst street in Athens; where, in broad daylight, you can see the Somali and Afghan drug dealers openly selling drugs to junkies in truly terrible states. Where Sophocleus crosses Menandrou st was partly blocked off by a police van, which appears more to be aimed at containing the situation, rather than tackling it. Apparently Sophocleus is ok by day and, lets be precise, the Fresh hotel is 5 mins walk from the worst area, but I would personally feel uncomfortable taking a child under 18 to stay in this hotel. And if you do, tell him or her to turn left out of the door, not right (especially at night).
