Brilliantly positioned1
This hotel is in a great position in or very near to Place and ditto to Syntagma Square...about 4 minutes walk to each. The staff are very helpful. The rooms are small however so, if you do want space this is not the place. if however you are staying to be near to Plaka and near to Syntagma Square and are using the hotel to sleep and have breakfast then it is brilliant. And honestly Greece, Athens who wants to sit in their hotel room!

Good 6.0
Hotel was clean and looked fairly new; very central location (which can be a blessing or a curse depending on the person); located in a quiet small street off Syntagma, amidst all sorts of restaurants, bars, and cafes. The breakfast had extensive choices and was very good. Some problems to keep an eye out for: the rooms are very small, the shower almost claustrophobic. The AC is noisy, even at the lowest setting, which made for a bit of a rough summer night. The WiFi worked on my phone but I could not get it to work on my computer. The reception team is not particularly friendly. Overall, it was fine for a quick stay but I will not be returning.

Great hotel, great loacation
I cannot imagine that there is a better place to stay in Athens, than this lovely hotel. It has a perfect loacation-only five miutes walk from Syntagma metro which runs directly from the airport, close to the beautiful area of Plaka and walkable to all the must see sites. Our room had a wonderful view of the Acropolis and was very comfortable, with plenty of storage. It was great to have tea making facilities and a fridge as it meant we could nip back during the afternoon for a rest and a 'cuppa'. The rooftop terrace is gorgeous and we had a delicious meal there one night. Breakfast is also delicious and there is plenty of choice. The staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel is perfect for a visit to Athens.

Good position, shame about the room.
Not the greatest of hotels, but with perhaps the greatest of views from the roof terrace - an unrestricted view of the Parthenon..

Good in parts...
Rooftop bar is fab, all common areas are nice but the roo. Was a bit tired. The bed was not comfortable at all. Our heating/air conditioning was set to hot-hot whatever you did... however, great position, close to everything.

Good 6.0
Rooftop terrace is great. All the rest is not.
Very small room, with the view towards the wall and other people rooms. Wifi didn't work at all - we complained, and it was not fixed during all 5 nights stay. The neighborhood is a bit creepy - ruined buildings and piles of garbage on the street just in front of the entrance, but that's the general central Athens problems as we figured out later. Bubble pool doesn't work in winter. And one more thing: in the check-in form in the "address" field we have found pre-typed "Russia", while we handed over our other country passports to a receptionist. Which was not corrected later on either - when we checked out and paid 1,5 Euro per night fee. I'd advise the staff be more attentive with these small things. We enjoyed: breakfast, silence and terrace.
