Bathroom needs some help. Ours had a dingy shower curtain that was clearly dirty from soaking in water. The staff were helpful but not friendly. My husband tried to engage them on several occasions but was rebuffed with scowls it very curt answers, even the ones that spoke fluent English.

2/10 Poor

Dried blood of the back of the cover, stains on the chairs and all over the carpet and even on the shower floor, horrible smell, wilted apples at breakfast.. like out of a horror movie.

4/10 Fair

Booked three different time periods for a total five nights. It was not an experience that I'd want to go through again. The rooms were very small and cramped, and none of the TV worked in the 5 different rooms that we stayed. Bathrooms are terribly small. Small is ok, but the shower stalls did not even have proper shower curtains. So, the bathrooms became a mess once you have used them. It is not a good place to stay.

Does the job
Stayed here for two nights, and was overall happy with my experience. The room was spacious and clean, and the balcony had a great view of the Acropolis. Seemed to be located in a bit of a dodgy area, but we ha did no incidents while walking around the streets. Within easy walking distance of the Archeological Museum. Popular tourist spots like the Acropolis were quite a long walk away but were doable. Overall a pleasant experience.

Good location
Good location of hotel, close of metro station and from train station, staff was unfriendly and at times rude. Breakfast was fine and worth for money. Area is just OK, not recommend to someone with family but fine if you are alone. Overall clean hotel but can be improved.

6/10 Good

The Good: It's cheap, and right by both the subway and Athens Central Railway for easy access to the airport and anywhere in the city. The Bad: WiFi didn't really work in the rooms, furniture was dingy, and calling the breakfast "horrendous" would be a compliment, although it was included in the price. You get what you pay for. Decent value for the money.

Good place for a couple of nights
If you are looking for a cheap hotel, this is the hotel for you. Very small elevator. Breakfast is good enough. 10 min walk to the archaeological museum. Costs 5 euros by taxi to Syntagma square. Being outside the central city, costs 44 euros to get to Airport. CHAT tours has pickup and dropoff, so works out great.

Needing serious improvement
The hotel needs work - shower and ac barely worked, elevator too tiny, breakfast very unappetizing, with watery juice and coffee bad by any standard. Location is good, easy neighborhood walk to Museum. Staff tried.
