“Excellent Value, excellent service, location so so”
Reviewed 8 April 2011

I recently stayed at this hotel. The location admittedly was not that fantastic, just like any hotel in downtown area of any major city in the world. However the metro was just 3 minute walk away and all major places of interest were totally easily accessible. The reception was wonderfully friendly and helpful and went the extra mile to take care of us. The food was served in the dining room was excellent, traditional food, nice greek salads served with delicious tasty greek dishes. For breakfast there was wonderful greek yoghurt served with honey plus real greek coffee made over hot sand. The staff were wonderful - delightful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Value for money, i would say that this was a hidden treasure. you just have to be a little street wise in the area.

Along with most of the other reviews I would like to start off stating that the location however convenient, it was very sketchy. The staff is very very very helpful and the rooms are decent. Breakfast was simple but is expected in Greece.

I work in anti human trafficking. I was surprised to find easyjet reccomended this.
It is two doors from the casino where pimps meet, there were Romanian girls prostituting within 30 metres. We passed a guy injecting heroin in his groin, trousers down outside the hotel. Nice hotel otherwise, although not for families or children, internal landing huge windows are open at just above knee height to a sheer drop. Security is a concern, if you dont lock windows there is a 2 feet wide shelf outside, easy for access to rooms. breakfast was pretty good. Its close to Amonia - the one place you dont go as a tourist, had a purse stolen in first 3 hours, and met several others at police station. Amonia full of addicts dealing, prostitutes and pick pockets. not safe.

Possibly the best breakfast you will find in all of Greece. Especially for the price! The neighborhood is terrible. Hookers just outside the door, reminded me of late 70's Hell's Kitchen! The beds were horrible BUT CLEAN. The rooms leave A LOT to be desired.
The staff was extra friendly and willing to help in any way possible. Wake up calls were dead on! Perfect hotel for those that will only need a place to sleep and leave there bags.

The hotel is 5 minutes from Omonia Metro station, central and quite easy to find, a good base. The area around Omonia square leaves a lot to be desired, dirty with homeless, prostitutes and drug users, although with a high Police presence doesn't feel threatening. The hotel is basic but generally clean, although a little old with signs of wear. Two lifts take you up to one of the nine floors. The room was of a reasonable size and quite comfortable with a refridgerator, but no kettle. Breakfast is served in the restaurant on the first floor and consisted of a reasonable selection of cold items and also warm bacon, 2 types of eggs and sausages. There is also a bar but we didn't use it.
Good value for money, would certainly go back again.
