      • Older travelers

        great location and all that we need

        • Average rating
      • Couple

        The room was spacious and very clean. Cleaning and towels change, on a daily basis. Comfortable bed.

        Charges for breakfast simply unacceptable (15 euros / per day / per person), especially when supermarket and kiosks are just accross the street. But for us, the most negative aspect of this hotel, is the noise from the street (really annoying, even in the top floors), however this is maybe the case for most of the hotels in athens near an avenue. Wifi not for free, espeacially for the price of the room.

        Excellent staff, good breakfast, spacious room.

        Old fashioned bathroom, rather noisy room facing main street, not good access with public transport

      • Family with children

        The room set up was fantastic with 3 children, loads of space for us all. The swimming pool was heavenly with amazing views on the roof, the kids spent hours in their easily. Staff very friendly and lovely with the children. Location wise ok but not brilliant. Would definitely recommend.
