    Fabulous

    The hotel was close enough to Monastiraki station and just a minute walk to Psyri area. The roof terrace has a nice view of Acropolis. The room was very clean and with modern furniture. There was a PC we can use free internet access.

    Very good

    Nice view from my street side room over the Acropolis

    Very close to bad neighbourhood, use the pedestrian streets to get to the hotel not the Athina street after darkness.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The hotel was very central. Lots of nice restaurants were close by, the metro was handy, and the view of the acropolis is stunning.

    The area initially felt a bit intimadating, there is alot of graffitti on the surrounding buildings, and we arrived quiet late and unsure of where the hotel was. In the light of the day it was actually nice, with many local business's in the area.

    Superb

    I stayed here alone for 2 nights last weekend. The room was modern, clean and had a nice balcony that looked directly at the Acropolis. Location is just up the street from the center of Psiri which is a 1 minute walk from Monastiraki square and the metro stationç. Overall, this hotel is great value for money, nothing negative about it. The staff were very helpful too.

    Great location in Psiri where locals go for dinners and drinks. Walking distance to main attractions like Plaka, Akropolis. Ver close to the market area, a paradise of flavours and aromas for the gourmets. Free internet in lobby

    do not choose the rooms with a double bed... they are very small

    Fabulous

    It is a modern and clean hotel close to everything in the central Athens. The view from roof garden was fantastic. We really liked the stay at this hotel and can recommend it all visitors to Athens.

    The beds is very hard, but that is something normal i Greece. The environment close to the hotel is not so nice, but only a hundred meters away a more tourist friendly part of Psiri starts.

    Our first room turned out to be really small and dark, overlooking some ugly 20 sq.m. internal space (yaerd). Second room we were moved to, was better overlooking the street and partinally the Acropol, but also we had to listen early in the morning the church bells every half an hour and the whole 2hour Sunday preach. Breakfast was offering no kind of vegetables, and barely some not fresh fruits. Location is close and convinient to city center, but the neighbourhood looked dingy and a bit unsafe in the evening. Staff was polite and helpful.

    Exceptional

    Hotel was superb. Very modern, very clean. Room had a lovely modern bathroom with a big bath. Had locker to leave your bag after check out. Free Wi-Fi. Wonderful view of the Acropolis fro the roof top garden. Very close to restaurants and subway station, and was able to walk back from the Acropolis. And also very inexpensive only 60 euros a night! Fantastic.

    Superb

    Clean, spacious bathroom. Close to Metro. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Good breakfast. Prefer their tile floor to old carpeting. Great roof garden view of the Acropolis.

    They should do a restaurant or bar on the roof garden.

    Fabulous

    Location was the greatest surprise. It is just a few steps away from Monsteriaki metro station. On the way many restaurants and pubs can be shown but hotel itself is in very quiet area. Indeed, there is small church opposite the hotel but we did not hear any bells ringing. :) The breakfast buffet was reach. Staff members take their time, but it is essence of Greece :) Everyone was helpful and nice to us.

    Little problems with understanding how to operate air conditioning. As soon as we learned, worked perfect.

    Fabulous

    Its a nice hotel with reasonable price. Staff is very friendly & helped us during our stay.

    Location is slightly in bylane. From the main street have to walk for about 3 minutes in the bylane so during late night a bit scary. During day time no problems.
