Great location however rooms small and air conditioning not appropriate

Great location that is why I chose the hotel again for the fourth time. Foyer looks better since last time I stayed here. However the rooms are small and feel very tight for space. Bathroom even though are small are renovated and convenient. The major drawback is the air conditioning which makes it very uncomfortable during the night especially on a hot night. This could be an issue for me in staying here next time.

Great location, excellent helpful staff

This is a great hotel right in the heart of Athens in Syntagma Square, close to Plaka. Rooms were clean, roomy and looked as new. Best breakfast in Greece with lovely delicacies, like bogatsa (custard filo baked pie), spanakopita (spinach pie), fresh orange juice. The staff were very helpful, giving us a great hint about picking up the ferry tickets from the local office rather than lining up at the port. Would definately stay there again!

Good location and breakfast

The hotel is located just off Syntagma Square, so very close to the Plaka district for eating and walking to the Akropolis and other tourist sites. Make sure you watch the changing of the guard in front of Parliament as the ritual is very interesting plus you can have your photo taken with one of the guards afterwards.

If you use wifi in your room you have to pay for it but you have free access in the lobby. Just ask reception for the access code. Check out the free Greek delight at the lift.
