Lotus Hotel was so easy to reach by metro, only a block away from a station on the red line. The Athens subway is excellent, although crowded. Hold on to your belongings and stay alert at all times while in the subway. Apart from the usual street noise in a centrally located hotel, the Lotus is quiet, convenient, very modern and clean.
Wifi internet in the room was horrible !!!! The only good spot for a good signal was on the roof top. Great view of the Acropolis by the way. They need to fix that problem! I booked a renovated room. Except the bathroom. Old style. Very disappointed. It shouldn't be post pictures on the site showing an updated bathroom.

If you intend to go around Athens and just need a clean place to rest, this is the best hotel to do so. The staff was very friendly. It is not as new as other hotels that we've too but the place has character and is very charming. We got a connecting room, so my husband and I had our privacy and each room has its own bathroom. We drove around downtown in a taxi and this area was actually one of the nicest.
Lovely hotel, not a five star, full of mod cons hotel however we really enjoyed our stay. We used it as a base to view the wonderful sites of Athens and were able to come and go, no time restrictions. Very helpful when asking for directions.
Breakfast was a traditional Greek serving of boiled eggs, ham, cheese and bread. Staff were lovely, room was refreshed daily and upon departure our flight being late evening meant leaving our bags which they were more than happy for us to do.
A neighborhood in Athens, Metaxourgio is a place full of transition. Once home to laborers, the neighborhood is now multicultural and undergoing mass urban-gentrification. It is close to Karaiskaki Square and has its own metro stop, Metaxourgio, that can whisk visitors to central Athens.
