          Friendly hotel and a stunning view of the Acropolis

          While the location in Athens itself was excellent and the view of the Acropolis stunning, the street outside and leading up to the main road was full of very undesirable people and we felt very threatened every time we walked along it. We simply didn't go out at night through fear of being mugged. We noted that on our last day, 2 policemen walked along this street and it cleared of these people immediately. Maybe this should happen every day. Sadly because of this problem we would not use this hotel again.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          Near to main tourist interest places like Plaka, Acropolis, metro station,

          It is located in unsafe area. Many drug addicted along the street. We have been reminded by the local and taxi driver about this. Therefore we took the taxi back to the hotel in the evening even though it just walking distance. The taxi driver was so kind and wait until we (ladies) entered the hotel then he only moved.

          Good value for money, clean, nice staff, good free internet connection

          Just at the edge of Psiri but not right in it, hence the immediate surroundings are not really nice

          excellent location - 10min walk to acropolis

        • Single
          7.4

          room spacious, comfortable and clean; free wireless internet; hotel seems to be recently renovated; presence of fridge and safe in room; very good selection of TV channels in many languages; hotel staff kind and helpful; hotel rather close to all of the most important sites in Athens, essentially all reachable by foot; good breakfast with nice selection of fresh and dried fruits; nice view on the city from roof terrace; good value for money

          Although hotel is located in wider city center, immediate neighborhood is rather intimidating with very high percentage of immigrants of all colors and frequent incidents and police raids in this area. I did not feel safe even during the day, and I avoided to walk through the area during the night. Wireless internet access, although free, was often unreliable and slow, and was some kind of adware, because about every fifteen minutes I had to pass through two web pages (one from Internet provider and one from sponsoring company with their advertisements) in order to continue to use Internet access - this is very annoying and I am very dissatisfied with this kind of "free" internet access. Locker, while spacious, was not very functional;

          Very nice and helpful reception staff, clean room, WiFi access, nice view from the terrace breakfast place/bar

          Location not the best,

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Very friendly and helpfull staff. Clean and proper room, including bathroom. Breakfast on the top floor with a view of Acropolis. Proximity to Acropolis. Good subway connection to the airport and Pireus harbor.

          The hotel was very nice, but the area is a bit scrubby.

          Good value for money - location seems a bit dodgy at first, but ended up being fine.

        • Couple
          7.8

          The location of the hotel is in the heart of Athens and within walking distance of major sights and landmarks. Also stores and restaurants within 5 min. Walk. The breakfast was good, not too rich, the same every day but definitely enough and consisted of various food. We always had hot water (which is not often in Greek hotels:-) good value for money and perfect for people who come for a few days to see Athens - not for family vocation, not for long stay... The breakfast room is also a cafeteria/bar with good view (but beer is 3 eu which is too much considering the usual rates outside the hotel both in cafes and stores)

          The neighborhood was kind of shady - but it is a "problem" of the whole city center, not just this hotel. However, the people are harmless and even friendly in local stores. One of our rooms was connected to a balcony accessible to everyone - which was worrying and there was no window in the bathroom. The rug on the bed was dirty.The parking is listed as 'private" but it is just the street in front of the hotel. Nothing happened but it was strange and not what we expected for "private parking".The lady on breakfast was counting our fruit and was making remarks if we have taken 3 or 4 peaches (we were 4 people - 2 couples?!)

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          Good hotel not far from Monastiraki metro station and bus 51 from terminal 1 coach station.No problems. Good breakfast. Nice view of Acropolis from 7 floor bar and breakfast room. Nice lady in reception.

          was missing shower handel and curtain.

          5 minutes walk to most major sights of Athens. Breakfast room on the roof with beautiful view on Acropolis.

          The street where the hotel is located is quite unpleasant at night.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Rooms were clean and comfortable. Very good air conditioning and nice beds. Decent breakfast with boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, cereal, juice, coffee, and toast. The rooftop terrace has a nice view of the Acropolis and is open in the evenings until midnight. The hotel is conveniently located a short walk from the metro, Plaka, and Acropolis. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a good place to buy drinks across the street and a small grocery store next door to the hotel. There is a refrigerator in the room. This hotel is a great value for the money. We would definitely stay here again.

          The hotel is on the edge of the "good" part of town. While we were checking in, someone walked in the front door, took a piece of our luggage, and started walking away. The lady checking us in was very alert and yelled at the man. We were able to get our bag back and she sent him out of the area. It's not really a bad neighborhood, but stay alert and watch your bags and possessions. We walked all around there, day and night, with no problem.

          Nice hotel with a good breakfast. It is very central and close to everything. The neighborhood is slightly dodgy, but it is easy enough to avoid by choosing certain streets.
