We traveled to Greece in November of 2010, my girlfriend had already booked a room at the Pella Inn through a travel site before we ever left. After we took the train from the airport into the square and got our bearings the hotel was not hard to find. The polish woman at the counter was very warm and welcoming to us. After checking us in she sent us up to our room to see if we liked it and offered us a key to check out a room on the next floor up. The first room was pretty tiny with just a bed and a sink with a window looking over an alley. It would have been sufficient if you weren't planning on staying more than a night or two. We checked out the next room, I think it was 36 and it was AMAZING! The room had it's own private bathroom and shower with an Acropolis view balcony. It really was only about 10 euro more a night so we took that one instead. I'll have to say the beds are a little uncomfortable so bring a sleeping pad to lay on top of and maybe some ear plugs. While I don't mind the noise there really was a lot coming up from the street at night. I love all the little eateries and shops and the flea market that were in walking distance of the hotel. We found one place we went to for dinner every night we were there that week, except I don't remember the name of the place.
We just happened to get into town the day of some national holiday and all the historical sites were free to get in. Though we were tired from our flight we did most of our historical site touring that day. The local people at the smaller shops were very friendly. One of the men we talked to told us that he was very appreciative that we were there as tourists bringing money in the way their economy was going.
We will more than likely go back one of these days and stay again!
