    A great place to stay in central Athens

    This central Athens hotel is perfect for sightseeing,eating out and shopping. It is also near train station for getting to Piraeus or the X95 bus stop for getting to airport Staff are delightful and so friendly and helpful Rooms quiet and comfortable Finally roof terrace is great for Acropolis views at night or first thing in the morning

    Disappointing stay

    Very disappointed to find the terrace bar closed and nowhere on site to get coffee. Specifically chose the hotel due to limited mobility after a recent accident so we could just stay on site whilst waiting for repatriation. Whilst I appreciate the potential of weather disruption the hotel should have advised in advance of arrival that facilities would be shut for 3 days. Very disappointing stay. As for paying extra for a balcony I feel it should be made clear that it's little more than a juliette balcony with no opportunity to even sit on it, just 2 huge air con units or similar on it, nothing else.

    The staff here was the nicest staff I’ve ever experienced. Everyone was kind, helpful and just wonderful to be around. I cannot say enough about how amazing the staff was. The views of the acropolis are just like the pictures. As of March 2020 their rooftop area was under construction for renovation, but was still open. Gorgeous sunsets on the rooftop, I highly recommend this property.
