Stayed here for 5 nights in early April. The location is ideal. While it is fair to say that the hotel itself is not situated in the most salubrious of areas, it is pefectly safe and you are within easy walking distance of all the important sights. We got a deal where the hotel deducted the cost of visiting the Accropolis and other sites from our final bill. The breakfast was delicious and there was lots of choice, including homemade breads and greek classics (cheese and spinach pies) and the option of a cooked breakfast. The ladies that served breakfast were also excellent. My only issue with this hotel was the AC situation. We complained that the room was too warm and that we couldn't make it cooler (it was 21 degrees). We also noticed that the AC screen had a flashing lantern, which according to the instructions indicated that it needed servicing. We were told that it was fine but that we could only make the room cooler by switiching off the AC (irritatingly, it kept switching itself back on) and opening the window. We had a front-facing room and it was directly opposite a bar, which played loud music until the early hours and there is alot of street noise in Athens, with very noisy motorcycles - the hotel itself is situated just off a main road. Needless to say the quality of our sleep wasn't the best. Although this didn't impact greatly on our trip, it might cause greater problems for others. Finally, all the guidebooks tell you to keep away from "touristy" Plaka, but in early April it was actually very nice, not overrun with tourists and I would happily based myself there, next time I visit Athens, if I do not return to the O&B, which I would do, provided that the AC issues are resolved.
