Stayed here for three nights as a lone traveller in May 2013 and was very pleased. The hotel was very clean and the shower, bed etc. were all good. It is a simple hotel, but well kept and with friendly staff. I will certainly stay there again next time I'm in Athens. Great value.
Some people have commented on the area the hotel is in. Now, I used to live in Athens and am familiar with the city. The hotel is located in the centre of town and yes, there can be some strange people about, especially at night. Walk 50 metres and you are right in the centre of the vibrant quite touristy area of Psirri with lots of bars, tavernas, clubs and other fun stuff; walk 100 metres in the other direction and you end up in some "bad" areas where I wouldn't recommend walking alone at night. The street the hotel itself is on has lots of shops (flowers and such) and is in no way a "bad" place. The thing is it is like this in almost any large city centre in the world. Just use common sense, walk to the hotel from the metro station along Athinas street and you will be fine - remember, Athens is generally a VERY safe city. It might be a bit "loud" and people tend to shout more, but that is Greece!
When you stay here make sure you that when you get up one morning you walk through the meat/butcher's market just round the corner - it's an experience! and will teach you alot about Greece.
