Reviewed 18 June 2014

Stayed for 3 nights in June 2014. The only good thing is location. But horrible service, rubbish towels, very unresponsive WiFi, uncomfortable camp beds, cold breakfast even at start and horrible TV channel service. Also they took shower box doors without notice for some repair or another. And when we asked or enquired, the man at the desk just laughed but offered no solutions.

I would strongly advise you to stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Dont choose one here!

I'm glad we only stayed at this hotel two nights - but that was two too many. The bed was flat and uncomfortable; the towels were dingy and threadbare; no strong WiFi. We should've listened to our cab driver as he unloaded our luggage. He told us to be very careful at night b/c it's a bad neighborhood.

Redeeming qualities: just a few steps away from a metro station. One of the desk clerks was friendly. The room wasn't dirty, but was showing its age.

It doesn't take much to install a wireless router and buy some new towels. I'd be willing to pay more for those amenities.

Stayed with my wife and a kid for 3 nights in May'14

Pros:
Location: centrally located, walking distance to metro & supermarket, view of acropolis from 5th and 6th floor; breakfast buffet; safe location; helpful reception

Cons: rooms are compact, noise from road outside so u have to keep the windows closed; wifi not in rooms only in reception

Overall a good value for money if u want to stay centrally near all tourist attractions.

This hotel was great value. Easily accessed by train from the airport. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. The room basic but very clean and a comfortable bed. The balcony had a view of the Acropolis as does the roof terrace which is a great place to sit at the end of the day and rehydrate! Excellent traditional taverna nearby as well as a Spar for groceries. The hotel also organises a cheaper rate for a taxi ride back to the airport.

I stayed one week in May 2014. The hotel was neat and the breakfast ok. She staff was very friendly and helpful. Long minus must be given for the poor wi-fi connections in everywhere at hotel, in spite of it was advertised that wi-fi should be available at hotel. The location near Acropolis and metro station was handy, and the Hop On -Hop off -bus stop was around the corner,

Room Tip: Higher floors are near to the Sky Bar to see the view to Acropolis!

What an awesome hotel. Some staff are brilliant lady in reception ordered me am pizza takeaway. Breakfast ia good. The location is superb. I walked most places from hotel and everything only 10/15 minutes away. The hop on hop off bus is brilliant 18 euro for 2 days and only round corner from hotel. Would recommend this hotel. The only downside was rooftop bar and restaurant wasn't open yet but you can still go up in the evening view of the acropolis is amazing.
