Good location, but noisy and bad bed

Posted Jun 14, 2017
Good location, 5 to 10 min walk to the Acropolis. Breakfast buffet is very good. But the hotel is noisy, road noise 24 hours a day. (the windows do not seem to stop any noise) The hallways are vinyl floor and you hear every foot step anyone makes. The plumbing is noisy, you hear water running if anyone in the hotel is taking a shower. AND the bed are the worst bed I had in a two week tour of Greece. (hard, and dented in the middle) The tour I was on uses this hotel and I was disappointed. I arrived earlier and stayed in a rental apartment two blocks away for 40% of this hotel cost. The bed was great and the noise was much less. I recommend you find an apartment to rent away from the busy roads. You will save money and have less noise. If you do this, book 3 months in advance (or more)

Close to Acropolis

Posted May 25, 2017
Great location, quick walk to Acropolis and other attractions. Lots of great restaurants and shops around the Acropolis. Front desk staff very helpful. Breakfast was good, but very crowded first thing. Also close to rental car companies.

Nice hotel very close to the Acropolis.

The hotel is very closed to a metro stop. Quiet street and some nice Greek restaurants nearby.

Hotel Staff were amazing. Took initiative to tell us more on the hotel and Athens and even suggested and directed many places around the hotel for food/shopping and sightseeing.

Average Hotel

Posted Apr 13, 2017
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Cleanliness could be better and more comfortable beds.
Location: Metro station is near by, walking distance to restaurants and shops
Room size was good but everything was a little dated and not the cleanest. The beds were not comfortable. The shower pressure was really good. The staff was very nice and accommodating with directions and helping with booking transportation.

On a Budget, Look no further

Posted Feb 23, 2017 on Hotels
Staff was very friendly and helpful and location is good for walking to many attractions or even to the metro. Our room was very clean but not that impressive. Beds weren't very comfortable but we didn't spend much time in the room so it didn't really matter. Our shower head leaked and sprayed water everywhere so everyday after showering it looked like a river in our bathroom. DO NOT waste money on the breakfast, it wasn't very good and nothing was cooked right; ie. bacon and scrambled eggs very under cooked, coffee is instant and juice machine gives watery juice. Amenities stated there is parking at the hotel and there is not. The hotel uses a parking garage that is located about a block away and charges 10 euro a day and street parking was almost impossible to find. Airport transfer is available for a fee, it is not included in room rate.
