    Fabulous

    1) Location is absolutely wonderful, very central and very safe. Monastiraki Square is just 10 minutes away via walking and the metro station is less than 5 minutes. 2) The room was very clean. All the towels are changed daily. 3) Breakfast is OK. Cheese, ham, sausage, egg, butter and some fruits.

    1) No WI-fi in rooms! Although the signal power was good, I was not able to connect Internet with my laptop and 2 smart phones. However, when I tried in lobby there was not a connection problem. I asked the reception but he did nothing except saying "try it tomorrow again". I think the problem is not special with me, I saw some people trying to connect Internet in lobby too. 2) There was a bad smell (like toilet) everywhere from lobby to cafeteria and rooms, but it was gone most of the time. 3) The sound isolation is not so good, however it did not disturb me since my window did not look a main street. 4) Price is a little high if it is considered to the hotel.

    Good central location easy for metro, shopping, restruants etc. Spacious comfortable room at a reasonable price for a capital city. Decent selection for buffet breakfast.

    As our lap top developed a problem with the wireless system it would have been good to have been able to connect using a cabel but the staff said this was not possable.

    Superb

    The location was excellent. Central and next to Syntagma square where you can find a metro station, bus and tram station. Also next to Ermou street, Athens' main shopping area. Clean and comfortable rooms with A/C.

    Breakfast was good but it could include a bigger variety of food.

    Fabulous

    Chose this place as this was departure for tour we were doing. Very easy to get there from Airport and very close to all tourist attractions in Athens. Rooms were good size but air conditioner did not work that well.

    Breakfast area good, continental breakfast included bacon and eggs but you needed to be there when they first came out otherwise stone cold, Breakfast was disappointing.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is quite good for the price, very near to the Syntagma Square and with good conditions. The services are correctly advertised. Good choice for those who want to stay close to the center, which has 24h bus trips from/to the airport, and visit the city on a budget.

    The hotel is a bit old, but for the price you can't complain.

    Great hotel in the center of Athens, just steps away from the main shopping district (Ermou St) and Syntagma Square - easy to get to from the metro station. Spacious, clean room - perfect for a solo traveller for a few nights!

    Basic breakfast - good enough!

    Very good

    Location, as the airport bus stops 100m from hotel, very close to the main shopping area and Plaka, where there are many restaurants. Rection area is good as well as hotel entrance.

    The staff has to be more flexible, as I stayed one night before reserving the second through Booked.net, so when I was checking in 5 minutes after booking, he tried to charge my credit card, despite that I was standing in front of him, to pay in cash. We had a discussion for 10 minutes before one of the staff informed him that he could take cash.

    Exceptional

    Location is unbeatable. You can go anywhere from there, most public transport links are within 1 minute walk including bus / train to the airport. Very safe location at any time, you can buy anything you need 24/7 in the Syntagma square. It is not a luxury hotel but you get what you need and it is very clean which makes it unbeatable if you get a good price. Staff were very good although I did not need require any help as I have lived in Athens in the past and know the city quite well.

    Very helpful hosts. The view from the room is unbelievable. A balcony overlooking the valley and the gulf. So good. lovely breakfast. Clean room and close to Delphi so you can walk. Our host shifted his car to make it easier for us and gave us directions. Amazing value for money. English speaking.

    Well located, close to the square, walk 5 minutes, reasonable breakfast.

    The staff is very unpleasant (apathy), has a lot of noise from the street - not insulated windows, bathroom ceiling dripped yellow water In short, the conditions are very bad ,place to sleep at low cost אם אתם בכל זאת מזמינים , תצפו לגרוע מכל , ואולי תופתעו לטובה :)
