The hotel is located close to the Metro and within walking distance of all the major sites. The area is safe during the evening, there is some traffic noise if your room is facing the street. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable, free Wi-Fi works in the rooms. Breakfast buffet provides enough variety and is plentiful. Reception staff is helpful.

Nice, clean budget hotel. Walking distance to Monastiraki and Syntagma, and all the must-see sights like the Acropolis. You can take the express bus to the airport from Syntagma. Even includes breakfast. Staff is pleasant and helpful.
"Hotel Diethnes - convinient and inexpensive"

Stayed there twice during my two times in Greece and both time had an excellent experience. Hotel is close to metro and suburban railroad, which is perfect for getting around - unless they are on strike. Room are comfortable and breakfast is ideal for a quick start on the day.
"Hotel Nicola - Good Value and Service"

The Hotel Nicola is a straightforward, good value European-style hotel. I stayed there with my girlfriend for two nights. The room was entirely satisfactory: comfortable beds, working AC, balcony, TV, hot water in the showers (not always a sure thing in Greece). The hotel isn't particularly close to central Athens -- 15-20 minute walk plus two stops on the subway -- but that's why it's cheap. The staff recommended a local restaurant just a couple of blocks away and it was one of the best places we went in Athens. The park across the main street is also really pleasant, nice for walking and fills up with families and kids playing soccer in the evenings. The included breakfast was ample and tasty.
Minor complaints: The safe in the room didn't work, and the free WiFi didn't reach up to the fourth floor where our room was. The hotel's a little hard to find, and there's a tree growing in front of the sign that makes it harder.
The Hotel is basic but clean. The price it is very good, The staff were very friendly and most helpful. We were travelling early in the morning before breakfast and the staff got coffee for us as for free.
