This hotel is centrally located near Monastiraki metro station and with absolutely breathtaking views of the Acropolis. Staff are obliging. The hotel is fantastic. The noise emanating from the square to about 1am may be disconcerting to Dsome but it really adds to the experience. Strongly recommended.
Nice hotel, clean and does its purpose. Lively area at night and very close to the old city. Rooms are not comfortable as beds and pillows are hard and shower head needs to be held by hand. Nice small balcony is a plus. Breakfast is basic and good for 6 euros.
The hotel is situated in the perfect location. It's a 10-15 minute walk to most everything, including the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, outdoor food market, etc... There's a metro stop just 3 minutes away and tons of (great) restaurants, bars and shopping nearby. It's about a 45 minute taxi ride from the airport (which costs 35 euros) and about 25 minutes walk to the bottom of Mt. Lycabettus. I can't overstate how great the location is. As for the rooms, they are small but exceptionally clean. There's a neat rooftop bar with reasonable prices that has an incredible view of the Acropolis. The hotel also offers a storage room where you can leave your luggage while you explore the islands or Meteora. I would highly recommend this hotel!
Below the Acropolis, at the foot of quaint Plaka, Monastiraki centres on a pedestrianised square with a Byzantine church and a metro station. From here, Ifaistou Street hosts a bazaar displaying leather goods, cheap jewellery, antiques and army surplus, while Adrianou is lined with open-air cafés overlooking the Ancient Agora. A flea market is held here on Sunday mornings.
