We stayed at this hotel about 2 weeks ago at the end of March for 1 night before a flight to Santorini. We decided to take the metro from the airport and it was easy to find although the neighbourhood appeared a bit sketchy but still safe nevertheless. The neighbourhood appears to be a new immigrant part of the city and lower on the socioeconomic scale. So we were surprised to see such a fancy yet cozy hotel nuzzled in the middle of it! Front desk service was consistent and high quality, such a friendly staff! The room was standard, clean and comfortable with a little balcony. Thank goodness the staff explained to us how to use the heater because we needed overnight.
Service: I actually got an eye infection when I got to the hotel and the staff downstairs were super helpful in arranging a taxi to take us to the closest pharmacy, wait, and then bring us back. My infection improved overnight because of their prompt service.
Location: This is my only caveat with this place. The closest attraction is the national archaeological museum (which is a MUST SEE), but otherwise you will have to take the metro to the acropolis, plaka and other sites. The metro stop is just under 8 minutes away and this hotel is at the edge of downtown Athens. Transfer to airport was 40 euros and took us 25 minutes in the morning, but can take up to 40 minutes during traffic.
Overall we enjoyed this hotel and the service and would recommend it to anyone looking for a budget high quality place to stay!
