my stay in epidavros was a pleasant one.
i stayed for four nights starting 13th may 2014 and staying in room 107.
to be honest i was a bit uneasy booking this hotel,but in the end i still booked it and give it a go.after booking it i was still continue reading at different reviews here and the sooner my holiday is coming the more i was worried.specially about the area of omonia.
i even sent an email to the hotel itself asking about the area and should i get a taxi from omonia metro station to the hotel as i was arriving very late at night.
they replied to me and told me that no need to get a taxi and the area is safe!
and yes it is as i am still alive doing this review:)
when i arrived at the omonia it so easy to locate the hotel providing you are following the instructions from the hotel website.
the only wrong information was the subarban train.you dont need need to take the train and change there is a direct metro from the airport to the city.
epidavros:pls update your info on how to get to the hotel from the airport on your website.
i was bit cautious while walking as it was 0100 already in the morning.
checking was so smoothly,the receptionist was very helpful and polite.after unpacking my bag i even went out again back to omonia to get some food.(yes it is safe to walk around)
police are always on the sights patroling and that makes me feel more secure.
the room was spacious,clean and i had a balcony.
its not brand new but its okay.i do always prepare myself for the worst so i will not be devastated.
it is cleaned everyday and fresh towel too everyday.
breakfast was not brilliant but it is okay to fill your stomach and start your day.
it is very close to the metro of omonia a few minutes walk you will find yourself in monastiraki whic is another area of athens.
the WiFi is not working on my first and last night:( dunno why?.....but on the other days that i was there it is fantastic.
the receptionist are very helpful specially the lady on the morning/day shift.everybody are very welcoming and cheerful.
no mini bar,no water but there is a fridge.
i will definitely recommend this hotel to all travellers that are not so fussy.at the end of the day all i need is a bed to sleep and a warm shower.
i will also definitely staying again if i will eva go back in athens.
