Reasonably priced, poor wifi, appalling breakfast
Balcony, location, price
It was ok for 2 nights. Awful breakfast with a very limited selection of food. Wifi was a joke, hardly working at all, poor connection. We wouldn't recommend for stays longer than one or two nights. It's chems and clean though.

centrally located with nice staff
friendly staff, close to the Metro station
Hotel is just 2 min. walk far from the metro station and only from 4 stops from Acropolis. You can even walk to Acropolis from the Hotel within 20 min. You can park your car on the street for free. It is usually full, but staff was kindly arrange parking our 2 cars in front of the Hotel. They were very friendly and helpful with all our requests. Breakfast and food in the restaurant was poor and while the Hotel looks great from outside, and the hall and stairs also, rooms and bathrooms were not too clean. We stayed 2 nights there and the Hotel was fine for us to sleep after sightseeing.
