I went to athens and I realised this hotel is lovely from the outside and inside BUT the road ATHENAS is a extremely run down area with drunks and druggies hanging around ..even the area Omonia is an area with lots of hotels with prostitutes hanging around down the side roads.
All these areas are ROUGH and eventhough there is police around it is quite unsettling walking around because the people around there seem strange like they want to steal from you ! There is alot of graffiti around and you can see its really run down.
I think Athens should be seen for the ruins but the hotel locations are very unsettling unless you get the hotels in monastraki because thats not too bad. I think Athens is quite deceptive in the sense the four star hotels could be in very run down tricky areas ..so be careful ! However this hotel is walking distance from the main sites but the road is very unsafe for single women .. having a partner would be better.
