Our family of 3 had a triple room. The room was a basic, but did the job! Beds are comfortable and a good air conditioning unit. A breakfast is basic but very good, products are fresh an tasty. The hotel is in a great location in the centre of Athens, walking distance to the Acropolis an lot of good restaurants and pubs just around the hotel.
I was a little worried when we booked this hotel, because I normally stay with family when visiting Athens, and wasn't sure what to expect.
We were 4 adults sharing a room. They were a little tight, with all our suitcases inside. But we were only spending 1.5 days in Athens, before leaving to go back to Canada, so this sufficed.
The room and bathroom were clean. The staff was really nice, and super friendly. And the best part was we were in the heart of Monastiraki, which had some great shopping, and pretty good food at the local eateries.
It was really easy to get to the Acropolis/Acropolis Museum from the hotel, and Syntagma Square is about a 10 minute walk. You had a choice of multiple Metro locations, that were minutes away.
It's about 30-50 minute cab ride to/from the Airport (depending on what time you go). They even arranged to have a cab come pick us up the day we left (for about 38 Euros). But if you're travelling light, and have lots of time, you can take the Metro to the Airport for a lot less. Overall a happy experience and would stay there again.
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.
