This is the third time we've stayed at this hotel. It represents exceptional value for money and exemplifies the best in Greek hospitality. Although this hotel is not right in the city centre (it is located almost opposite Athens main railway station) there are excellent trolley bus and metro connections which quickly get you into the city. The hotel is also well situated for easy transfers to the airport and the main ferry port at Piraeus.
Despite arriving after midnight (due to a flight delay) we were given a warm welcome.
We purchased food at a nearby restaurant and brought it back to the hotel, eating it on the balcony overlooking the old Peloponese Railway station. Our room was comfortable, clean and there was plentiful hot water for showers even at that time of night and even although the hotel is on a main road the traffic noise didn't cause us a problem. We had forgotten to put our watches forward and after a very comfortable night went downstairs for breakfast - thinking it was 9.15am - however it was 11.15am, so we had missed it!
A Neos Olympos breakfast fairly sets you up for the day so we had to make do with a cup of coffee up at the Plaka instead.
We were taking a ferry to the Dodecanese later in the evening so asked if we could leave our cases at the hotel while we went into the city - which was no problem, in fact we also arranged to leave our cases at the hotel (even although we weren't staying there) on our return from the islands until it was time to catch our flight home, again leaving us free to explore the city.
Giorgos and Giorgia run a well established hotel, which is always a good introduction for foreigners coming into Greece.
