      • Family with children

        Very nice hotel, good location, lots of stores and restaurants close by, near to Plaka and other touristic places.Very good breakfast, had everything you can want in a breakfast, best part of the hotel for me.

        The room was too tiny for 3 person, they should have said that the 3rd bed was a sofa bed, and it cramped the room, we couldn´t walk around and ower bags were in the way.

        Superb location, helpful front desk staff, good breakfast

        Three bedroom room was quite noisy and outdated, please renew the floor carpet. Small bathroom.

        The location is very easy to find and only 2 mins from Sytagma square. Taking the metro from the airport to Sytagma is also very easy, no changes and around 45 mins. Also very easy to go out as based in the centre of town. Good for business use.

        No real critisms. Breakfast was pretty standard and I had a view out of the bedroom window of another wall!

        Convenient location to metro/buses/sights. Not in the safest part of Athens for nightime walking. Some front desk staff were helpful, some were unwilling to provide information. Clean room/bath, very comfortable beds/pillows. Stains on sheets so we requested sheets be changed. Small balcony to stand on, not for sitting. Desk/flat screen tv. Tiny elevators so ask for lower floor if claustrophobic.

        Inefficient room ac. In-room frig didn't work. Some stains/mold on bathroom ceiling (room 809).

        The beddings are hard and uncomfortable to sleep on. There was no airconditioner during december so we had to open our window when the room was warm.The room is small.
