      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.

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.
