The hotel has a modern and spacious feel to it. The room is not that large but quite adequate. A plus is that it has a small balcony where you can comfortably sit and have a drink or do some reading in the morning (it is really too hot from midday onwards in the direct sun in the middle of August). In my case, the balcony also offers a partial view of the forum nearby. All the staff have been friendly and helpful and speak good English. The desk in the room is tiny, so this is probably not the place for you if you intend to do a lot of work. But the wifi is good and the air conditioning cools down the room very effectively in 5–10 minutes. The water pressure however is unstable (6th floor) and quite often the hot water is just luke warm, if that. I actually took the bus from the airport to this hotel, it is a 10 minutes' walk (partly slightly uphill) from the bus stop at Aristotle Square and the trip costs 80 cent. I took a taxi from hotel to airport and the 30 minute journey costs 15 euro set price.
