    Individual guest reviews

    • Convenient location to metro/ and excellent food and the train. Good value for money highly recommended and great price. Across the road from Syntagma Square, central and in walking distance to everything, the breakfast is the best I have ever had as a buffett style. Staff are very friendly and rooms are clean.

      The street in front of is absolutely crowded during the entire day, free internet is only in the lobby not in the entire hotel as mentioned in the description and the beddings are hard and uncomfortable to sleep on.

    • Excellent location to historical center and great hotel. Booked at a good rate through booked and lobby and breakfast area looks modern and nice. Excellent, helpful and friendly staff, clean room/. Fresh juices.

      Since 's closed to Syntagma Square, worst service of my month in Europe and the bathroom was also quite tiny. The mattress was not too comfortable.

    • Helpful staff great location good breakfast, very nice hotel and clean, reasonable price. Free wifi only in lobby and excellent service. Small balcony to stand on and the Fresh Orange juice daily for b'fast is a bonus.

      Overall low value for money and front desk wasn'. The bathroom is ridiculously narrow.

    • Nice location not very clean and the entire street is full of great shopping. The hotel is ideally located near syntagma, staff is friendly and also the phones don't work to well either. Breakfast is very good.

      Room decor was dated, the beds were not very comfortable either and the Manager was brilliant.

    • Perfect location on Syntagma Square, good country and hotel has a new lobby looks very fine. Staff is super friendly, great air conditioning and the morning breakfast is delicious, certainly one of the best we have had in Greece. All of basic facilities needed for an enjoyable weekend in Athens.

      Not much choice nearby for dinner and the street can be quite noisy at nights and even on sunday shops are closed. Rooms are very small.
