          Hotel ok none negative opinions

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          The hotel is approximately 7 minutes walking from the Monestraki metro station so we didn't have troubles pulling our light luggage to it. The room is very clean and modern style especially the glassed walls bathroom. Staff are ok.

          The road leading to it is a bet tight with plenty of parked cars and bikes so while pulling our luggage we had to stop and wait for passing cars which is not comforting especially if you have kids. Also the down streets going left doesn't feel any safety at night. The room smelled smoking when I switched the ac on.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Very clean and comfortable, excellent staff and good breakfast too. Good location, only 5 minutes walk from Monastiraki Square and underground station (2 stops from Acropolis), or 20 minutes walk to Plaka for restaurants and shops for everything from leather-goods to Greek honey. Only 50 yards from Psyrri square where there is a good selection of bars, cafes and restaurants. Very pretty church opposite.

          The Psyrri district does look a bit run down, lots of graffiti around, even just outside the hotel entrance, but don't be put off, it really is a good hotel and the area is perfectly safe.

        • Couple
          6.6

          From our balcony we had a gorgeous view of the Acropolis, which is about 20 minutes walk away. It is close to the metro-about 5 minutes walk. It had a decent spread for breakfast as well, all you can eat.

          The location of the hotel is in an unsafe area, but I think that is much of Athens.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Convenient location (closed to Plaka and subway; easy walk to main historical site) Comfortable rooms and good breakfast. Just be careful about the small streets nearby at night - darkness and security.

        • Single
          6.6

          Room a bit cramped for working in

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          Access internet very fast, is better if we access inside the room and near to shopping bazar complex.

          Is better if we access internet inside the room

        • Family with children
          8.2

          the staff is really helpful and the service is really worth your money.

          a little hard to find it

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          The view to Partenon

          This hotel is located in slum-dog area the surrounding wall marked with with very dirty paints, surrounding was not clean and garbage containers reside in front of the hotel gate. The infrastructure were not maintain well. I was complaining the door to the balcony could not be locked, but they did not fix it.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Closness to every where, cleanliness

          The toilet and batheroom are separate facilities and have heavy glass doors that have to close every time you walk in or out, which makes it inconvenient as two people move arround in the room. Breakfast offers few choicess (no vegetables).

        • Couple
          7.4

          location was very good, near Monastraki station which is close to every attractions and good connection to the airport. night view from terrace was also very good and room was clean. lots of restaurants and bars near by.

          Room was a bit small, but good value for money.There is a church in front of the hotel, and church bells keep ringing very loudly from 7 am. if you don't want to wake up early, you don't want to stay here.

        • Single
          10.0

          Room design, rich breakfast, free internet

        • Couple
          4.2

          Convenient location, close to metro station that goes directly to the airport. Nice standing view (high barrier) of the Acropolis.

          Very bad area. In all my time in Europe, I've never been so fearful of being mugged. Need to walk through dark, quiet, narrow alleys filled with graffitti to get from the metro station to the hotel. Room was tiny with poorly placed bed (diagonal in a square room!).

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Proximity to sightseeing and shopping venues, view of Acropolis.

        • Couple
          7.0

          The hotel is modern and rooms are large and well decorated.
