"Nice hotel near all the touristy places in Athens."
Me and my wife stayed here for three nights and we really enjoyed it. The hotel is located a little bit outside of the touristy chaos, but still close enough to it. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are quite spacious and the bed is probably the best bed I have ever had at a hotel. We ended up paying about 65 $ a night, which was a bargain. We took the room without breakfast ( which we didn't want for 30$ a night, especially when there are so many amazing bakeries and cafes nearby).
We stayed four nights here on the third floor. It wasn't soundproof--we heard guests coming in and out all night long, parties going on across the street, dogs barking, traffic. Between all the noise and the uncomfortable mattress and pillows, we didn't get much sleep at all during our stay. This might not matter much to folks who are used to sleeping on springy mattresses. I think we should have asked for a room at the back of the hotel on an upper floor, that probably would have helped.
The rooftop bar staff were very sweet and made sure we had wine glasses and a corkscrew when we went up to get our bottle of wine opened. Great view of Lykavittos Hill (but not the Parthenon).
No gym, pool, large lobby, or any other more luxurious amenities, but we knew this when we booked it. The rooftop bar was reasonably priced and great to relax at and play a few games of Backgammon.
It's a good place to stay if you're looking for a centrally located hotel on a shoestring budget. We booked our flights with our hotel and got a great deal.
I got the private room and they were nice enough to not charge for an additional person in the room. We ended up staying for another night because we enjoyed the people's warm and positive vibes, not only the staff but also the people who stay at this hostel. I would come back again.
Students and artists reside in this bohemian area filled with low-key bars, old-fashioned cafes and down-to-earth tavernas. A hotchpotch of neoclassical buildings and modern concrete apartment blocks line its grid of busy roads and leafy pedestrian side streets. The University lies close by, and the National Archaeological Museum is a 10-minute walk away.
