    I asked and paid extra for a room with a view of the Acropolis. I received this. When I couldn't get the TV to work and called the front desk they came upstairs to see that the TV wasn't plugged in. I didn't hear noise outside the room but I don't think there were many customers staying there. At 94 Euros it was a good price. I liked the location to the Metro, Plaka and Acropolis.

    The front desk woman gave me directions at 1 P.M. to the Acropolis. She did not tell me that it closes at 2:30. I arrived at 2 P.M. as I strolled through Plaka shops etc. I paid 12 Euros for a 4 day ticket so I thought, I will see the Acropolis for 30 minutes Thursday and return on Friday. Wrong. With the 12 Euro ticket you only get admission once. I think that in a different hotel that info would have been shared with client. I asked her on the second day about the Promenade and she didn't know what I was talking about although my Guide Book, Lonely Planet, highly recommended this walk. She talked about a 11 a.m. walking tour. No, I replied. "how can you work in a Athens hotel and not know this?" Well, that totally ticked her off as during my 30 minute breakfast I heard her yelling to the staff which I'm sure was about me! When I checked out of the hotel the manager was by her side - defending me or her I don't know. With time she did highlight the promenade for me on the map and write the number of the tram to take to the Archeology Museum.

    The room was small but clean. It had everything I needed. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning was great! The girl on the front desk was very helpful and spoke good English. I only stayed one night as I was on my way to a Greek island and was making the connection the next morning. The girl on the front desk showed me on a map how to get to the bus stop and suggested I catch a cab. This turned out to be very good advice!

    The streets are narrow and at times uneven. It was difficult to walk with a heavy bag on wheels, especially as I was not sure where I was going. I had a bit of trouble finding the place, but I think that might be just me!

    The hotel is centrally located in a lovely area of Athens. Friendly bar staff and lovely terrace with great views. We booked a 'superior' room which had a decent view of the Acropolis, although no balcony. Complimentary bottle of wine on arrival (mostly undrinkable). Slippers, bathrobes, free wifi etc.

    A problem with the online booking process was handled brusquely on our arrival by the concierge, bordering on rudeness, which was not particularly welcoming. In general, the bedroom was spotless, but the shower would certainly have benefitted from a good scrub, to remove the patches of black mould that had gathered in the corners. The air conditioning also did very little to alter the room temperature (June), so it was rather warm and stuffy. Average breakfast for the money.

    the view from the roof garden was terrific Breakfast was very good Beds were comfortable and bathroom conformed to those of other hotels we stayed in while in Greece: small !

    Location is good. Close to the Airport Express bus stop(last stop): x95 (50-60 minutes from airport). X 95 runs every 20 minutes from Athens international airport such as 10:00; 10:20; 10: 40 etc. In the city center area, the room rate is 110 euros per night including the breakfast, The breakfast is ok, The 7th floor's view is very nice , there's a bar located on the 7th floor.

    The sheets is not clean in our room. We lived in Room408, there's noise at night. I heard the noise for two nights from a machine or something...

    Clean air-conditioned rooms, central location, modern washroom, nice view from the rooftop bar. The breakfast room also looked nice although we were only there briefly for an early morning breakfast.

    The hotel staff provided us with an incorrect information to get to piraeus from the hotel, so it took us 90 minutes to get to the port instead of 20 min as the hotel staff described. He told us to take the metro at monastiraki but the station was under construction. If we got there even one minute later, we would've missed the ferry. It's really too bad that they wern't up to date on this information.

    Great value for money, very very kind staff. Very pleased!!!

    The breakfast could be very much improved, there is a wide variety of greek homemade products such as jam, honey, cheeses, pies, breads and its a shame to provide the industrial ones.

    The staff was very nice and helpful with getting me to the airport on time for my early morning flight. The room was totally clean and well kept. The hotel is on a mediocre street in a great part of town. The lobby is very nice.

    The room felt sterile, not a lot of character. My window was to a courtyard where it was hard to tell if I had privacy with it open. My heater was stuck on full volume no matter what I did so I ad to brave leaving the window open the whole three days I was there, and I was a little sketched out by whether or not this was safe. They put a lot of care and effort into the lobby, not as much into the rooms, and practically none into everything I between. Looks fancy at the front, but pretty gross carpet stains and yucky feelings await in the depressing hallways. The room was clean and adequately comfortable for sleeping, but I wouldn't want to spend much time in it. Maybe that's a plus? I found nicer hotels for less in the same neighborhood.
