I chose this hotel for a weekend stay in Athens in January 2012 basing on its location, price and recommendation from a local friend. I found hotels that looked better at least on photos (design etc) and had better prices but was advised against them judging on their locations within the city (dangerous, unsafe with possibilities of being mugged). The hotel is not so great in appearance but I would say it ticks all the boxes for being simple, clean and safe. Breakfast include on the price was nothing special but was sufficient for the start of the day with a good choice of food. It is served on the top floor with panoramic windows offering a nice view, which does offer a different ‘breakfast experience’ than other hotels I had stayed at. The staff was very helpful and attentive. The hotel is right across the street from the beach with easy access to the tram (and therefore the city and the airport). The rooms are also basics and may seem a bit old and worn out, but good enough as a basis for a short touristic stay. Wi-fi was not free and you have to purchase an access card from the reception.
