Great terrace where you can see the acropolis. Excellent breakfast buffet. Strong wifi in the public areas. Ample rooms. The location is close to the main touristed sections of town and easily walkable. Plus it is on the bus route from the major Athens bus station.
To address some of the comments from other reviewers about the safety of the area.. We never felt unsafe, that said - Athens seems to be hurting quite a bit from the austerity. There is lots (I mean *lots*) of grafiti everywhere. Slightly less near the Acropolis-proximal hotels, but it is really hard to avoid. This gives an impression that one isn't in a good neighborhood that I'm not sure is fair to actual crime rates per se. We walked on our own at night and weren't over nervous at all.
Getting to the airport: Also, it is very easy to catch a cab to the airport from the street, I believe there is an upcharge if you have the hotel do this on your behalf.
