We arrived late and the staff sent up this lovely plate of cheese, raki, sun dried tomatoes, bread and olives. They were completely prepared for us, led us right to our room and after the delivery of the plate, all was quiet.
When we came down for breakfast, it was a lovely room, beautiful linens, delicious yogurt, cretian honey, pastry, greek omelet, toast....deep rich coffee. Just the thing after 15 hours of travel and 10 hours of restful sleep.
Don't be dismayed by the rough neighbor hood that the hotel resides in. It is safe and quiet inside and we found that most of the boutique hotels were in the same kind of areas in Athens.
The lovely people who work the front desk could not be more knowledgeable or more friendly. These people work very long hours and have every right to be tired or irritable but they alas are not. They care about everything and remember where we ate, and ask about it. Even the person who was not the one who recommended the restaurant! How did you know we went there???
If you want a boutique hotel at a great price, this is your place. This hotel would have been $500-700 a night in New York where we live. I think it was the equivalent of $300. US.
Really, in Athens this is the place to stay.
ps. watch the traffic as you walk out of the front door...
