"Great location, good accommodations"
We spent one night at this hotel in Athens as a jumping-off point before we left for the islands the next day for our honeymoon. It's a great location- walking distance from the Acropolis metro stop (easily reachable from the airport), and from the Acropolis itself. Also within walking distance of tons of shopping and places to eat. The room was just what we needed- not very big, basic but comfortable and clean.

"Hotel near Acropolis but not on main street"
The hotel is fine, very close to the metro station and Acropolis. Its on a quiet street so not so noisy. The hotel itself is outdated but renovated. Its a 3 star USA standard. So its not too bad. The breakfast is average in Athens standard with typical choices. Nothing special about. Its mainly for tourists that just need a room to sleep and breakfast in the morning. With a close location to many main attraction and decent room, it is a good choice for non-picky tourists.

"Nice stay by the Acropolis"
The best thing about this hotel is the location. Train stop is literally around the corner. Took it to and from airport. About a 50min ride for 8euros. The Acropolis, Parthenon, Museum and the likes are right down the street. Plenty of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops in walking distance as well. Hotel room was comfortable. 3 star at best, but fine for a one night stay.

"Four star hotel, NO!"
We booked well in advance and were assured of 4 star service. We got a room on the top floor, in fact the only one on floor six. Small and not up to standard especially the bathroom. Breakfast was far below standard with food being piled on food on the serving plate. You cannot put fresh eggs on cold ones, pile up fruit of various descriptions etc. Waiters were not very helpful. We felt that Greece is a discouraged country!

The hotel staff were helpful and friendly, the complimentary breakfast was plentiful and a great way to start the day. We were able to walk to the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, the Roman Agora and all the sights there. We were glad we stayed where we did, it made it easy to see what we hoped to see in Athens. We used the hop on hop off bus to access museums and other sights.

"Came back five years in a row."
We visit Athens at least once a year, and usually stay about a week. The main attraction of this hotel: location. You're within walking distance of about anything you may want to see, and if you get more ambitious (or not much of a walker), buses and the tram are around the corner, and so is the Metro, but that is another corner. People are nice, everything is clean (don't forget to tip the housekeeping women, they are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet), and the breakfast buffet is great. Lately the restaurant is open evenings, but we never used it. We arrived in Athens by rental car, dropped it of at the agency (they're all two blocks away, on Syngrou) and we're very happy that one of their people dropped us off at the hotel. Athens at the evening peak is not for the faint-hearted, and this location is especially treacherous!

"Overview of location, hotel features, and staff."
My wife and I spent one week late April and were very pleased with the hotel and staff. The location could not be better. Minutes from the Metro on a quiet side street easy to find and within comfortable walking distance to the Acropolis and other attractions. Supermarket and many restaurants, all very reasonably priced (we travel economically) are a block away. The hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff spoke fluent English and were genuinely friendly and helpful, buffet breakfast was one of the best we have ever had, rooms are clean, comfortable, and quiet with comfortable beds. We definitely recommend this hotel for everyone and would stay again without hesitation. The neighborhood was also a very welcoming place.

"Nice centrally located hotel in Athens"
The customer service was very good at this hotel. The front desk staff were very accommodating and welcoming. We stayed in a triple room and had a small patio facing the outside street. The air conditioning wasn't working in the hotel due to being low season so we had to sleep with the patio door open to keep the room cool. Otherwise, everything else was fine. We didn't get to try the breakfast because we had to check out early the next morning to catch a ferry to the islands, but they service breakfast here. The wifi worked fine in the room and at a good speed. The check in and check out process was easy and expedited which made things easier when we had to leave. We liked this hotel enough to return to it again (I'm actually writing this review while I'm here now during my 2nd stay). The hotel location is very central to tourist sites such as the acropolis, the temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian's arch and the Acropolis museum. The Acropolis metro station was also right around the corner so it made it easy to transport around town.

"The Smell of Orange Trees and the Sounds of Birds"
This is a nice-looking hotel when you arrive at the lobby. The rooms, however, are spartan - would be better if they would put up some wall hangings/pictures - felt like a dorm room. I loved the smell of the orange trees outside and the birds singing in the morning, and it's in a MUCH better neighborhood than hotels on the north side of the Acropolis, so I would recommend it.

"Nice hotel close to major sites of Athens"
Hotel was easy to find using directions another reviewer had written. We rode the bus from the airport to Synthaga square. Very simple as tickets 5 Euro are purchased near bus stop in front of airport arrivals. Buses run very frequently and takes about 1 hour. You can also ride the metro which we did on the way back to the airport for 8 Euro, it is a little faster but both were very easy to use. Hotel reception was pleasant and provided a bottle of wine and fruit plate for my Expedia status. Room was clean, shower worked very well and we were close to major sites and restaurants/shops. Buffet breakfast was nice with a self service coffee machine and many foods to choose from.

As others have said, the rooms are beneath the expectations for 4 stars. But that barely matters given its location. Being within walking distance to the Acropolis, Plaka, and Temple of Olympian Zeus meant so many more opportunities to explore. If not for the proximity, it's hard to imagine I could have experienced sunrise over the Parthenon at dawn. Anyway the hotel staff is very friendly, even offering me a bottle of wine and fruit plate on check-in (I think this may have something to do with my Expedia gold status, which they commented on at the desk). The complimentary breakfast is also above average.

"Good value choice"
If you are looking for a hotel that is like a Marriott, it is not for you. If you would rather have money for other things, it is an excellent choice. The hotel is a little on the old side and so it is slightly worn. But it is clean, everything works, the room is comfortable and the breakfast is very good. It also has a terrace (though there were no chairs and three tables on the terrace.) The location is very good, a short walk to the Akropoli metro station. The neighborhood has a lot of restaurants and they are not particularly expensive. (The Italian restaurant around the corner is particularly good.) Perfection, it is not and so I give it 4 stars.

The location was great...took the metro from/to the airport. Walking distance to most of the noted sites and close to the Hop On/Hop Off bus stop. We stayed here for one night before heading out on a 4 day/3 night tour, then returned for 2 more nights in Athens. For both stays we were located on the 2nd floor, street side. During the first stay (a Sunday night) it was very noisy. On our subsequent stay, Thurs and Fri nights, the noise level was not as noticeable. The breakfast buffet was ample with a nice variety of offerings.

"Good value, great location"
When it comes to being located in the perfect spot in Athens for exploring the historical sites, this hotel was a great choice. The 3 star rating was more like a 2 star experience only in that the halls and tubs were less than emaculate. The bed was very comfortable, the room decor was fine, though plain, and the breakfast was at best, average. The staff were very helpful at all times and made functioning in Athens much easier. We did appreciate the effort the hotel made to make our stay pleasant. So we recommend it as a good place to stay for the convenience and customer service, but don't expect much more than the basics.

"semi-updated, large hotel near the Acropolis"
Went a little upscale from previous weekend's stay at an older, smaller hotel. The plumbing, TV, etc were all up to contemporary expectations, though the AC didn't seem to do much (it was a bit stuffy; we ended up sleeping with the balcony door open), and the mattresses were very stiff (plus, instead of a king bed, they gave us two twin beds pushed together).

The location quiet despite being so central, and felt very safe. The price reflects the excellent location - you can find similar quality for less if you go slightly less central (eg the Alexander, which belongs to the same chain.)

We needed lots of ice due to an ankle injury and the staff was always anxious to help. Breakfast had a large selection including scrabbled eggs and bacon. The location is top notch for visiting the Plaka. The taxi drivers complain about the street access which can be challenging but they always managed to delivers us to the front door.

This was our second stay at this hotel. The first time was 2008 for 3 nights before a cruise and this time was for 3 nights after a cruise, so I guess that says something. This hotel is not fancy, but it is adequate and clean. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful and they speak perfect English for the most part. Breakfast and wifi are free. The price per night for the room is very reasonable, especially for the great location. This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum and a very short walk to the Plaka. You can take a little hop on and off commuter train just down the street. The hotel staff is more than happy to set up any tour you might want to take. I will happily stay at this hotel on my next trip to Athens.

The location is perfect, absolutely unbeatable. Less than 5 minute stroll through nice restaurants and cafes to the subway or acropolis base and museum. The shower had some black mold in it which was quite gross but it was only in one corner. The shower curtain was mildewed but the staff replaced it with a new one when we asked. The heater didn't work and we only were provided one blanket which made our first night uncomfortable. Breakfast was adequate but the food was poor quality, more of something to get you by and save purchasing one meal rather than anything to look forward to.

The only advantage of this hotel is its location!! On arrival we waited for 10-15 min to check in because there were 2 receptionist one busy in the phone and the other was doing nothing but asking us to wait!! The hotel is very old and the pictures in the expedia doesn't reflect the real its actually deceiving. The elevator is very old and small We get upgraded by expedia and they sent us to the superior room which was in the 6th floor And we use the stairs because the elevator doesn't reach it. there were a welcoming drink and we went to celebrate in its balcony which seems to be a closed part of building roof Then we change our mind and decided to stay inside but unfortunately we got shocked when we saw a salamander with us in the room and we spent half an hour searching for it and trying our best to kill it!!!!!!! The furniture is old and the carpet looks to be made from plastic Pillow and bed was acceptable The remote control was very old without buttons. So we couldn't be able to change the channels the breakfast was below average And lastly If your interest is (((all)))about location and price its the best for you
