We only had a couple of days in Athens so we decided to stay close to all the attractions we wanted to see. This hotel fits the bill...it's close to the Plaka, Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Panathenaic Stadium, Philopappos Hill, etc. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping in the area.
We had a room overlooking the Acropolis but the pictures on the website are a little deceiving - you're also overlooking the many buildings on the other side of the street. At night when the Acropolis was lit up and it was easy to block out the buildings, it looked beautiful.
No complaints - this hotel was what we were looking for - clean, comfortable, good breakfast on the rooftop, great views from the rooftop and in a great location.
The rooms and lobby were nothing remarkable, just average. The exterior of the hotel needed an update. There were cars always parked in front of the hotel. Rooms looked much larger online. Breakfast was good, servers were helpful.
