“Great friendly Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Immensely helpful staff made this hotel even better. 2 Minutes from the Metro so you can move about very easily. The view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar is amazing. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

This hotel isn't in the best location of Athens, but it's about 100 metres from the Metro and about 15-20 minutes walking from the old part of Athens. Once you get into the hotel itself, the warm welcome, the clean fresh decor and the very ample breakfast buffet are all big positives in this hotel. The rooms as very clean, modern and well suited for the business traveller or short stay tourist. The cherry on the top, is the roof-top lounge and pool with an excellent view of the Acropolis.

Nice clean basic updated room with a helpful staff. The roof top bar and restaurant is Great! Go to the rooftop day and night you do not want to miss the view of the Acropolis!!! I would stay here just for that view who cares about location.

Stayed recently here during a weekend trip. Location is good - 2 min to next metro station, views from the rooftop are really nice, but I was told by the taxidriver that it wasn't the nicest area at night. Rooms were modern, but a bit too modern and rather cold for my taste.
The breakfast was not presented in a very lovely way, also the are didn't have any windows in the breakfast area...
Apart from the terrace, which is really nice, it's an ok hotel with good service, and stylish, but cold atmosphere.

The hotel itself is cute, the rooms are extremely simple, more like a motel, no warmth in the rooms at all...
The location is ugly, and according to all taxi drivers we took(lots of money on taxis...), the neighborhood is very dangerous at night, they all awared us ( girls) not to walk even a bit by ourselves at night...
The breakfast is poor, very low quality.
The roof top is nice, the swimming pool is cute, the views from the acropole is very beautiful.
The restaurant is nothing to be pround of, food is average minus, prices are reasonable, but if you have the option, dont stay stucked overthere.

We stayed here for 3 nights with a top deck group. The staff were so friendly and helpful and definitely the best thing about the hotel. The lady up on the top roof bar made great cocktails!!

Free wifi which is awesome & close to the metro.

The pool is more like a bath tub but the views of the acropolis are amazing! Breakfast is fantastic also!

Very nice Hotel Close to the main railway Station in Athens. Don't be afraid because the surrounding area doesn't look that nice - no worries. Hotel offers a Garage free of charge if you come by car (conveinient if you see the traffic) and is located Close to a Metro Station for easy transfer to all tourist places. Also the City bus trip providers stop close by.
The Hotel itself offers a very modern, clean and tidy stay. Our room was relatively big (estimated at 30 square meters) with a nice bathroom. Everything where it should be, fridge and safe as well available. Wifi is available free of Charge in the whole Hotel. Room offers air condition and noisy isolated windows.
Breakfast is provided in the lobby and offers local as well as international products (cold and warm) - no complaints at all.
One of the best things is the Roof terrace including pool (!) where you can relax in the evening and enjoy the view on the illuminated Acropolis and above the roofs of the City. On the roof terrace you can have as well dinner with some nice Food (burgers, Souvlaki,) - try the Vegetarian Club Sandwich - portions are big and Prices fair.
Only downside (small compared to the rest) - we tried to sleep with open window in the night, but next to the Hotel a bus Station for overland buses from Mazedonia or Albania is located - with buses sometimes arriving late in the night - thus sometimes noisy when 100 People exit two buses and are greated by friends and relatives. Will not at all be an issue in summer due to heat, air condition and isolated windows.
Highly recommended, will suggest this Hotel to anybody who wants to visit Athens.
Picture is made from the roof terrace with a tele-lens at night.

Room Tip: Recommend to ask for rooms higher up - the higher you are, the closer to the pool. Check as some Lev...
