Good for a 1-2 night stay

3 out of 5
by from hoston
Posted Jan 15, 2017
We were on 5th floor which was good because the night we were there the hotel had been booked for some kind of large personal or business event-so the event facility on first or second floor and hotel lobby were busy and sound bounces off marble floors. Rec that you ask for upper floor room. Big shout out for Incredibly helpful staff!!!!!!!!

for the price and location and cleanliness, a good deal for a business person or tourist spending limited time in the small room

Pros: The staff, the location
Cons: Serve a half decent breakfast, install a clock that works, change the curtains, upgrade the telephone system, among other things......
Location: Close to the Hilton hotel, therefore a safe locale, nice restaurants nearby
Good location, nice staff.....Awful breakfast, (processed cheese, meats, koolaid juice, no fresh fruit) walls were thin, broken clock, tiny shower staff, with only liquid soap dispenser)..not the best Best Western I've stayed in..

Friendly unpretentious hotel

4 out of 5
Posted May 15, 2015
Pros: See above. We found the hotel comfortable enough for our needs and thought it was very good value for money in the centre of a capital city.
Cons: The Strip club next door was a bit of a shock when we arrived late at night but in fact it didn't impinge on our stay at all.
Location: The location was fine although there are very busy roads to cross before reaching anywhere. We found restaurants and bars nearby selling draught beer
The hotel was very good value for money. We arrived very late due to weather delays and lost bags in transit. The hotel staff welcomed us well, located our bags the next day and had them delivered. The staff tended to us well throughout the week.Our room was as requested and was comfortable and quiet. We also liked the breakfast arrangements - relaxing and unhustled and good choice of food. We found the hotel was well-situated for walking to the ancient sites and shopping areas, and there were handy restaurants nearby.

Central location close to two Metro stations.

Cons: Adding some fruit to the buffet will improve the breakfast selection.
Location: The two Metro stations, one on either side of the hotel (walking distance) will lead you to anywhere you want to go in Athens. Two steps to Starbucks
The hotel was comfortable for the three nights that we spent there. The staff were friendly and helpful with whatever we asked for.

Budget hotel convenient to city centre

3 out of 5
Posted Oct 3, 2014
Cons: The breakfast was acceptable but not great, no variation, boiled were stone cold.
Location: conveniently located - you can walk into Athens town centre and to the ancient sites, near to metro when coming from airport - station is Evangelios
room size was good, but it was not possible to open curtain as the room directly looked into next building which was very close - I would not open window over night as people probably could climb in.

Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Breakfast had a good selection and was fresh. Elevator was a hassle, if you need an elevator this is not a good hotel for you.
