Dirty and noisy hotel, the walls are made from paper. The beds are reasonably comfy but they look like they are made by someone who has not seen a bed in his life (just some rods welded together). Bathrooms are decently clean but the equipment is poor quality. The staff is quite unpleasant and their English is bad. Almost as bad as the breakfast...
Room was reasonable and comfortable. Location was close to subway and even closer for tram. Beach within walking distance. Taxi readily available.
Would have been nice to have water and yogurt for breakfast. TV selection was not great but not a problem.
freindly staff, location on subway route, reasonably priced
The price was very good and also it included breakfast
The breakfast was just eggs and cereal. The location was not in the greatest part of town.
The staff was very helpful, room was comfortable, good size for us, Bathroom had a tub and was really great to relax after a long day. Breakfast included, was not special but was reasonable. AC worked well keeping room cool when sleeping.
The TV choice was very limited, breakfast could have used more variety but actually reasonable and quite satisfied.
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Provided us directions, recommendations and even pointed us in the direction of cheaper food when we didn't want to eat at the hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. There's a subway stop about 60 seconds walk away with access to the whole city. You can't beat the value. We would stay here again!
Can't complain about a single thing during our stay here!
-Close to metro.
-Breakfast very simple: bread, cheese, ham, hard boiled eggs, filter coffee and orange juice. -Not in the best part of town. -Room was dusty upon arrival.
The service was excellent! Perfect location for all travel around the city! Very good value for money.
The room was in good condition, recently renovated. Flawless painting. Good noise insulation from traffic. The room was situated at a promenade, what also reduced traffic noise. The room was clean. The bathroom was very small but also in good condition. The hotel is close to the metro station.
1. The single room was very small, there was not even a closet inside (about 6 sq.meter). No hooks to hang your cloth, just one chair to use for that. 2. The air conditioning was not blowing cool air, just blowed air without cooling. 3. You could hear voices from the adjacent room, thin walls.
Absolutely nothing. This Hotel is one of the worst hotels i have ever been and i, sincerely, do not reccomend to anybody to book here.
The list of the things i did not like is so long that it would take a day for me to mention all of it. Firstly; the rooms that are adverstised on the Booking.com are not the same ones like in the hotel; ii: The staff of the Hotel is extremely not polite and it is better not to ask them for anything because u will be insulted and deeply dissapointed; iii: Rooms we were given indeed do not deserve to be called rooms since the room facilities, comfort, hygiene etc does not meet the human standards; iv: wifi does not work and qhen i asked why the Menager of the Hotel told me it is up to him whether ge wants to provide the wifi or not since it is free of charge and i have not paid enough money to get the wifi(eventhough a made a regular booking as per adrvertised price); the list of things i did not like is much longer but, i strongly reccomend to everybody NOT to use this Hotel since it will completely spoil your visit to the beautiful city of Athens
H ευγενεια του προσωπικου ,οι παροχες του hotel σε σχεση με την τιμη ,και οτι ειναι κοντα στο μετρο και οχι μακρυα απο το κεντρο
Η ελλειψη WI-FI στα δωματια και η αδυναμια ευρεσης ελευθερη θεση parking
location value for money
Location, value, comfort, cleanliness. Facilities were nice but wifi signal was bad.
Didn't care for staff except one: a man at the front desk (Alice Cooper fan), was pleasant; the wifi was terrible and had to go to a Starbucks or other locale to get a signal that was better.
The cost and location to the metro
The person that was checking us in, an older man was very mean about us paying with credit card. And charged us more because of that.
Breakfast was good and fresh. Service was always good.
Rooms needs upgrades. Dirty sheets and rooms not cleaned or garbage emptied every day.
Small rooms Minimal staff
Hotel looks nice outside in the pictures.
We got the most terrible room from downstairs at the darkest corner of the hotel: no windows ! I asked a different room, but there wasn't any available. About ten minutes later hotel receptionist anyway found a new one but it was just nearby our room. So, no better situation and we kept the first one 'cos we have to overnight only one night in Athens. I felt like cheated.
Location - only 4 stops on metro from Acropolis and 3 from change for airport line Excellent value for money Quite quiet considering close to a busy road
Not a lot in the area in terms of restaurants etc Bathroom door a little bit broken Air conditioning run by a central system and this was turned off once the temperature got below 25 deg C
attentive personnel, hotel is not far from metro
loudly working system of ventilation
This hotel is owned by the amazing family who run it and work there at the same time. They are very helpful friendly and all in all really nice. Downstairs, by the reception there's really nice lounge with TV and the restaurant owned by the same people with amazingly tasty greek food. The location is - central (1 metro stop or 15 min walk from Acropolis). The room we had was standard - clean, hot water present, fridge, wardrobe and all the basics one may need.
The fact that this hotel is so close to a central metro station makes it ok.
The rooms were not great and very dark, the bathroom did not give the impression of being clean at all, the breakfast was very poor and some of the staff members were not friendly at all. Although the hotel looks very nice from the outside, the truth is that it is rather unpleasant.
