We stayed at this lovely small hotel when in Athens for a conference recently. The conference venue was a few stops away on the fantastic new metro built for the Olympics - its a winner - clean, efficient, safe and cheap and the nearest station just a short walk from the hotel! This hotel is just under the Acropolis, and all the historic areas and archaeological sites are within comfortable walking distance. The area is mostly pedestrianised, and full of tourist shops and tavernas, but still very pleasant to wander around.
The hotel itself is very comfortable, and the staff and service excellent. They are planning to redecorate soon, which will make it even better, although we had no complaints about the furnishings in our executive suite. It had a functional kitchenette, large living area and very comfortable king size bed. From our balcony we looked up to the Acropolis, and down to Hadrian's gate and the temple of Zeus. Nice touches were sparkling wine on arrival in an ice bucket, and a gift box of baclava to apologise for some minor noise relating to decoration of a nearby suite. Breakfast was not included but very reasonable at 12 euros
We chose this hotel on the basis of other tripadvisor reviews, and once again, we agree with other travellers that this is a lovely place to stay and enjoy Athens.
