    The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We arrived at midnight and left very early to catch flights out, but there was always someone at the front desk to call us a cab or recommend late-night restaurants. The hotel itself is very charming...in an old building....very nice.

    Some of the appliances (shower bracket) was broken

  • Group of friends

    Great location. Breakfast was more substantial than some places we stayed. Very reasonably priced and it was clean.

    Stayed at the hotel at the start of our trip and at end. First room needed some repairs: Couldn't hang shower attachment on wall, etc. Second room was fine.

  • Older travelers

    location is very good - very close to railway station very close to main shopping street and an easy walk to the Acropolis

    Location of the hotel was really good and hotel was decent enough though the building was old.

    The nice receptionists, also the buffet was nice

    It is not near any shops

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Very convenient location, helpful staff, decent breakfast. Don't miss the rooftop terrace, which has a wonderful view of the Parthenon lit up at night. (No chairs/tables up there, though, so you've got to stand and look.) We had a very early flight out and staff set out breakfast for us well before serving time.

    Bathroom was extremely small. You do get some street noise if you keep the window open.

  • Older travelers

    Location was great. Room was small but not impossible. Always someone at the front desk. Breakfast was good. Staff was very friendly to us. Great view of acropolis.

  • Older travelers

    Location was excellent. There is someone always at the desk. Room was smallish but not impossible. Great view of acropolis. Breakfast was good.

  • Single
    6.6

    the hotel room and public areas were spotlessly clean and fresh smelling. the continental breakfast buffet good with choices of food and drink. the room and bathroom a little small but no problem. very close to the square of monastiraki and the metro.good choice for sightseeing on a budget. friendly staff.

    if there was a way to improve the entrance area it gives an incorrect impression of the rest of the hotel!

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    great location. easy access from the airport and can go other places easily as the metro is very close by. The price is reasonable. It's clean. what else you want from a hotel in Europe in the city center at a reasonable price. Finally we stayed 4 nights at different days in three rooms. Some are better than others. But overall they are all ok.or esle we will change to the others nearby.

    some shower rooms need an upgrade.

  • Couple
    8.2

    You can reach all sightseeing sites on foot. There is a very nice market close to the hotel where one can buy fresh and tasty food, in particular vegetables, really cheap. We had strawberries for breakfast nearly every day. The free internet connection proved helpful for planning trips to the surrounding. Our wishes for a quiet room at the back side have been honored.

    The mattress of the bed was not too comfortable after a few days, and the (free!) internet connection was not reliable.

  • Single
    6.2

    Mostly unremarkable, staff were standoffish, breakfast was cereal and toast with jam, street could be noisy at night. But it was walking distance to most of the cool stuff, the area wasn't too dodgy and overall it was a good value for the money if you don't need anything fancy. I did see a few ants but overall it was pretty clean.

  • Couple
    7.8

    Great location, close to Plaka and Acropolis. Cozy breakfast, charming old elevator, hardwood floors. Quiet.

    Spartan accomodations.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    The hotel is in a great location for walking around the city, close to the Acropolis and ancient agora and the restaurants near the flea market, and with very easy access to the metro line running from the airport and to Piraeus. Our room was at the back of the hotel and the windows opened onto neighboring buildings, so the view was uninspiring but the room itself was very quiet. The breakfast room was clean and pleasant, and having free internet access on the hotel's computer was nice. The neighborhood around the hotel is somewhat scruffy, but it didn't feel unsafe. All in all, though the furnishings were plain, our bathroom in need of a little updating, and the breakfast just adequate (none of which really bothered us), for a family of four on a budget this was a great choice.
