“Nice Hotel, Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

I visited the hotel with my husband, our 15 months old baby, my mother, my sister and her husband. Staff was very helpful. Rooms are commodious, cosy and clean. Breatfast is very rich and delicious. Hotel is in a good location but it has a parking problem. This hotel can be preferred for touristic and also business trips.

The hotel has tiny rooms with an even smaller elevator. The standard double room is rather small with 2 single beds pushed together. The TV is from the 90s.

On the positive side, the staff are very helpful and location is walking distance from the Pantheon.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel located right in front of the two major highways. Very High noise level! The surrounding street looked quite depressing and filthy as most of the shops were out of business. The shower had poor design. No matter how hard we tried, the bathroom floor always got wet because of the cheep shower curtain. Room furniture looked old. 13" TV looked like from 80s. It's a bit far from main attractions (20 min walk). Room service was not so great.
Staff in front desk and breakfast room were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great! This is a 2 star hotel.

Once we arrived at the hotel my husband and I were very glad to hear that our standard double room has been upgraded to junior suite. But why? My fears were justified! When I entered the bathroom I saw dozen of ants there which were coming and going days long.
I should admit that personnel is very friendly and I liked the location although the hotel stands right on the highway, there is very nice calm surrounding and you can easily walk to Acropolis.
Air conditioner was too loud and the breakfast was awful: juices were untasty , probably made of very cheap concentrates, tomatoes were green and unattractive, little choice of food. The hotel is 2 star hotel ranking worth.

We only stayed one night, but it was a nice stay. The hotel itself was nice on the inside and the staff were friendly and helpful- they offered us juice on arrival and organised a taxi for us. Room serivce was excellent, prompt and nice food. We weren't thrilled with the location though, seemed a bit of a rough neighborhood. Other than that, everything else was great

Hotel staff is the best,they are so kind and friendly...At this month Athens is so hot and air conditon works very very good if i compare with other hotels that i had stayed...Hotel is at the city centre and far from everywhere 15 minutes by walking...But i advise everyone to go with metro,sygrou-fix station is 200 meters far from hotel...Also you can reach so easily so fastly and so cheaply to airport...Hotel needs a little bit new design because furnitures are quiet old and tv set is not lcd and also i couldnt find and Turkish channel on satellite tv altough there are many Turkish tourists visit Athens in whole year...Roof garden of the hotel is very nice with the view of Acropolis...

The hotel is rather ordinary but rather cheep with all necessary facilities but very convenient and comfortable due to the close position to the center of the city - you can get on foot almost to any famous places, it's near the pedestrian street with lots of charming restaurants and cafes, avenue Syggrou. But the highlight of the hotel is a roofgarden. On the 7-th floor of the hotel appeared be a rather comfortable cafe with a magnificent view opens up the Acropolis !!! It is so exciting to sit with your friends round the table and enjoy the view to the hill LYCAVITOS! Splendid!
