Very Good 8.4 From 38 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Love Athens
It is very nice place, nice clean room, the only thing was that it might be hard for guys to fit into the shower in this specific room but anything else we very very happy about.It is 20ish min walk to the monastiraki and the city center and we like to walk so location was good as well.

Pleasant, clean, and pretty quiet
I stayed in a single room. It was pleasant, clean, and pretty quiet. I could see the Acropolis from the window in the distance. There is an elevator at the property. I paid 7 Euros for breakfast and it was really good. Lots of choice from the buffet, I would certainly recommend. Bathroom a little on the small side but all else was good.

Wonderful all round
Great location, great room, great staff.... even gave us a complimentary home made jam when we left, doesn't get more delightful and lovely than that!

Very Good 8.0
Good Hotel with some reservations
A very reasonable hotel, clean and secure in a run down part of the city. Parking was dreadful and the one way systems made the simplest journey cumbersome. I suggest this hotel would be ideal if you were without a car, perhaps that may be true for the whole of Athens. Staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast buffet fine at 7 Euro. Close proximity to some very good eating places

Poor 2.0
Not recommend at all.
If I ever knew that I had to climb up a slope or walked up 60 steps to reach this hotel, I would never pick this place. Poor location & neighbourhood, full of homeless people and some were living in the same slope and you could hear noisy music & dog kept barking at night. We had the quadruple room with balcony and there two beds in the attic of which the air con did not reach that area. It was so stuffy up there & 2 of us ended up having headache due to poor air circulation. When this issue was raised to their staff, she said there had never been any complaints before & she could do nothing. The bathroom was not the same shown on the pictures, of course much worse.

Exceptional 10.0
Our stay was comfortable, with a great breakfast view and free coffee as well as wonderful rooms and bathrooms. The small feel and couple run hotel was a special way to experience Athens. The rooftop seating area was amazing. The only negative was the location, as it felt a little bit hard to get to and out of the way. Still not a bad walk to the city center however.

An absolutely fabulous hotel in a wonderful area
The hotel was amazing. It was spotlessly clean, and the people who ran the hotel were wonderfully hospitable. I felt very safe walking around the area at night, and, hands down, it is the best area in Athens if you like the artistic and non-touristy. The hotel was very affordable, too. I would stay here now any time I go to Athens.
