Georgia has a great hotel! She is the owner and always there smiling and tending to your needs. Very good breakfast in the morning and tells you have a nice day when you leave. The hotel has its own charm, spiral staircase and very quiet rooms. Its close to Larisa metro station and only 4 stops from the Syntagma square where all the shopping is. One more stop and you are at the Acropolis. Her son Billy is very helpful on giving directions and places to go visit around Greece. I recommend this place to everyone and will definitely go back!
Good place to stay with excellent value for money. The dormitory has only 3 beds and a shared bathroom. The breakfast is reasonable, with bread, margarine, jam, cheese, ham, cake, milk and cereal. The room has no safe, but you can take the key when you leave. The people at the reception are not very nice, except the owner of the site, but this does not affect your trip.
Far from heart of Athens, and surrounded by very bad neighbourhood. Not safe and not nice area. Staff is unfriendly and seems to doesn't care about anything.
Only positive point is it is cheap, but i would recommend you spend more bucks and fine decent place in a decent area.
This place is innexpensive, decently located and serves anyones basic needs. I would stay here again.
Location: Near the train station, on a busy, main road, we felt the location was good. We could walk to two metro stations within minutes and although the neighbourhood is not the most "friendly" looking, we always felt safe as it is very busy. It is NOT located in a touristy area, but that's what we liked. It was easy to find cheap meals around the hotel as there aren't much tourist traps around.
Front desk: We arrived early and they kept our bags for free. The employees were nice and friendly and the reception desk was opened 24h/day (and they lock the doors, so it's safe). The reception area is crowded but there is a bathroom, two computers free of charge and a "living room" style where you can hang out if need be. Breakfast was included and was the typical Greek breakfast... Olives, cheese, bread... The juice was kool-Aid style (yuk) but honestly... the price of the hotel is so cheap, you really don't go there for the breakfast. We didn't mind. We'd eat a toast which would hold us off eating for a few hours and then eat at a nice restaurant for lunch.
Room: We had two single beds in our room and the mattress were extremely comfortable. The room and ensuite were clean. AC and wifi worked well, although because we were on the top floor, I would sometime lack of a signal... As for a room on the second floor if you want to make sure to catch the wi-fi signals in your room. Also - Hotel does NOT have elevators so people with large suitcases (we had backpacks, so we were ok) or leg problems probably want to stay somewhere else or make SURE they are on the second floor.
We stayed here again after having such a good experience last year. The hotel is a beautiful old building and we had a lovely corner room with 2 balconies, one overlooking the old Peloponnese Railway Station. Although the hotel is on a main road, we weren't troubled by noise and enjoyed a comfortable night's sleep. Breakfast was the usual continental buffet and the food and drinks were constantly topped up. We've stayed in places that cost a lot more and weren't nearly as good.
The hotel is very easily reached from the airport and is convenient for all transport links - both into the centre of Athens and to the rest of Greece. We'd read negative reports about the area but didn't find any cause for concern, even late at night. It was late when we arrived at the hotel but we were able to have a very nice, reasonably priced meal at a friendly restaurant a short walking distance away, and there were bars nearby.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, and made us feel welcome. The owner, Georgia, was happy to chat and to store our cases until our evening ferry
We'd have loved to stay again on our way back home through Athens but unfortunately, for us, the hotel was fully booked!
