Positiv: The hotel was wonderfully located at the base of Acropolis. Easy to walk to the entrance and surrounding attractions.Negativ: The bathroom wasn't in the room, it was across the hall. If I had to use the restroom at night I had to worry about running into someone in my pajamas in the hall.
Generally great bang for your buck. The staff spoke pretty good English and were always friendly. It felt very safe. I had a very large private bathroom all to myself across the hall...it was almost as big as the room itself! Not complaining at all...I just thought it unusual. As far as Athens, please be aware that outside of the historical area in which this hotel resides...things may be a little rough. Times are tough right now in Athens and it can show. Tons of graffiti, protests on the streets, etc. And even with a map in hand, I found it hard to figure out even the underground metro...much less the bus system (I didn't even try...the signs made me dizzy). Also, don't follow any strangers ANYWHERE...as nice as they may be...because you may well be scammed out of some money before you even know what's happening. BUT, you're probably there for the tourist area and maybe the beach...and if so, you should have no problems. You'll probably find this room to be perfect for your needs!Positiv: The location, at the foot of the Acropolis in a beautiful historical touristy area, was perfect. I had a great view of the Acropolis from my particular balcony (try to request such a room). Also, it was really hot in Athens but the A/C worked brilliantly.Negativ: The bed was pretty stiff and there wasn't much room in the room, BUT I knew that going in. It's a great-value 2-star hotel in an awesome area. I got what I paid for and it was great. Oh, the TV didn't work...but I wasn't there to watch TV.
Positiv: Very clean, very quiet room. Easy walking distance to Acropolis.
The A.C. unit did not work the first night, and so it was quite hot, but then it worked the next two nights which was much more comfortable.Positiv: Great location, very convenient, amazing views. Awesome roof patio.Negativ: The room was clean and so were the bathrooms, but we had selected a private bathroom, and there were only public bathrooms (2 toilet/shower units for the whole floor).
Positiv: It's in the Plaka district, close to all the special sites on and near the acropolis, and fairly easy to reach by the metro. Do not bring your car, however. Parking is almost non-existent.
Cannot say enough good things about this hotel! Very helpful and friendly! The rooms fit our needs and were clean and tidy! Wouldn't have asked for a better location!!! Right near the acropolis which is near everything else! Cafes and taverns! As well as shops open constantly! Highly reccomend!Positiv: The location was amazing, the staff were so friendly and helpful and the terrace on the roof was amazing over looking the acropolis!
