I cannot say enough great stuff about this hotel. All of the staff is amazing! The location is great (1 block from Ermou and a couple of blocks from Syntagma Square and the National Gardens. This is my favorite area of Athens. The Acropolis is a 7-10 minute walk if you wander and so easy to find. This is a very safe area which was important for me since I was alone.
The hotel was extremely clean. The room was a nice size with plenty of room to put your bags and hang your clothes. There was a nice size fridge and safe. The wifi was great! The air conditioner worked very well. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but it was just me so it didn't matter. There was a decent size tv with a couple of English channels (I liked M so I had something to fall asleep to at night).
Breakfast was great! There were a couple of different kinds of eggs, fruit, pastries, meat, coffee, juices, water, veggies, etc. It started at 7:15a.
I left Athens for a couple of days to go to the Peloponnese and they locked up my bag so I did not have to drag it with me.
They set me up with a great car service to and from Piraeus and to and from the airport: Welcome Pickups. The drivers were there when they were supposed to be, they were friendly and extremely professional. As I found out, the prices were on par, if not a little bit cheaper than calling a taxi and they are also located in other cities (at least Amsterdam).
There is a business center down the stairs from the reception. You pass the stairs on the right after you leave the reception desk as you head to the elevator.
The noise from outside was a little loud. The first four nights I was on the 5th floor and the last night, after returning from the Peloponnese, I was on the 4th floor. I love everything else about this hotel so I will have to figure out how to find a quiet room in this hotel. I was so tired that I passed out each night. less
