My wife and i stayed here to kick-off our Greece tour in mid-August. The hotel was wonderful, modern and clean, and the staff were very helpful, and really went above and beyond the extra mile to make our stay worthwhile.
The breakfast was fantastic (we didn't have it included initially, but they gave it to us anyway! :)), and the wi-fi in the rooms was a definite bonus. They really did their best, and it showed.
If somehow this hotel could be picked up and moved to another area of the city, I'd give it a full 5 stars. Unfortunately, the part of town that it's located in isn't the safest (particularly at night), and even 2 cab drivers did not want to drop us off right in front of the hotel as apparently violence against cabbies is common in Athens, and particularly around Omonia Square.
Having said that, we didn't have any problems with anybody when coming back to the hotel at night, but we did see our fair share of prostitutes and drug addicts, and there was a heavy police presence.
Overall, I'd go back to this hotel with my wife, but would be hesitant to stay with children.
