We stayed here for a couple of nights before flying from Athens airport. We had a car with us so needed somewhere we could park for free and was quite central so we could explore the centre of the city.
The hotel is in very good condition and nicely decorated.
Our room was a bit on the small side, especially as we had three suitcases, but it was very clean and well decorated. The bathroom was also small. The room was comfortably air conditioned and mercifully the air conditioning was very quiet
Our room was on the fourth floor and it had no balcony but did have a partial view of the Acropolis.
The hotel has a Jacuzzi and a bar on the roof with great views of the Acropolis.
The hotel is in a very convenient location with the Plaka with its restaurants and small shops just a few minutes walk away. It was also near to the larger chain store shopping area too.
We walked to both the Acropolis and the Agora from the hotel, both of them were less than 20 minutes walk away.
Breakfast was a very good hot and cold buffet which starts at 0700. There was also a reduced breakfast available from 0500 for anyone needing to catch an early flight or ferry.
Staff were helpful and they helped us get the car in to a tight spot in the garage underneath the hotel.
Tip: If you are bringing a car, the garage is immediately before the hotel (you are in a one way street) so make sure you turn off the road onto the small driveway or you will have to try and find a way back to the hotel. The street is very narrow and you cannot park on the road.
We left very early in the morning and were able to get to the airport in under 40 minutes.
We can really recommend this hotel for exploring the centre of Athens
