It was a little hard to find the hotel (but it's hard to find anything by just the address in Athens), but the location was convenient and good for us. Less than a 10 min walk from the Megaro Mousikis (Music Hall) Metro stop and a nice little supermarket around the corner. Breakfast was typical bread, cookies, croissants, "scrambled" and hard boiled eggs, ham and bacon, cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers, greek yogurt and toppings like honey or dried fruit, and COFFEE~!
The hotel itself is small, but the room was large enough, with a safe, mini-fridge and two twins that could be pushed together or apart. Bathroom was nice with a big mirror and glass counter-top and a nice shower with decent pressure. It actually looked newer than the actual room.
Wi-fi stability was on/off. Probably about 70% of the time the connection was great, otherwise it was spotty or unusable. That was fine with us since we didn't really spend that much time at the hotel and were outside most of the time for sight seeing.
Also, we stayed during the summer, so maybe it was too hot and everyone had the A/C on, but during one of the five nights we stayed there, the electricity totally died. It was back up the next morning though, so the room still stayed cool and it didn't really interrupt us.
Overall, we felt we got a good price for a good hotel that fit our needs well. We were glad we went with the Embassy Suites Best Western
