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.

Good 6.0
Nice on the inside, great price
The welcome and help from the reception was great. The room was perfectly nice. There are lots of local restaurants that are very good. The only problem is the outside approach. It is very littered and full of grafitti and makes the whole area look bad. That being said, it seemed safe enough walking around, with university students and locals, and the room was just fine. It's a shame the locals litter and it's a shame the city doesn't do more to pick up trash.

Great hotel in a funky/ cool neighborhood
For me this place couldn't have been better. I loved the neighborhood. It's an alternative neighborhood with rock and roll record stores and bars, little cafes, book stores, obviously not a tourist area but everyone was friendly. Don't be put off by grittiness. I really enjoyed it and felt perfectly comfortable. There is a farmers market on the street below the hotel on Saturday. Several small but adequate grocery stores near by. It's about a ten minute walk to the nearest metro, once there you have access to the entire city. It is all up hill back to the hotel but because of this my room had a nice view of the city. I could see the Parthenon from my room and on a clear day the sea as well. For the price. I'm not sure you can beat this little hotel.

hospitable value hotel in charming Exarchia
While this hotel may not be for everyone, I found it to be ideal for my needs. Staying in Exarchia was an awesome experience. I loved the colorful neighborhood,(graffiti everywhere), and I felt safe enough walking around as a woman alone, (one should always you caution, of course). It was a great opportunity to stay where many tourist do not go, yet I could easily get to the metro and all of the tourist places easily. My room was rather small, but I had a view of the park and it was a great value. The hotel staff was friendly, extremely accommodating and helpful. There are many cheaper ways to get a breakfast, but I highly recommend the 6 euro breakfast on the rooftop. The view is amazing and you can eat like a king! Many other reviews complain about the hill, but how else do you not feel guilty about eating tons of feta cheese and drinking Greek wine?!? It was really not that bad, (and I carried my luggage). Overall, I had a great stay and would highly recommend this hotel!
