눉The decor could do with an update. The area around the hotel does feel a little intimidating until you get used to it, but actually it was very safe. The mattress is hard but we still slept well. The road outside is a little busy.
눇The location was good, a very short walk from the metro station, the forum, and the bars and restaurants in plaka. It was easy to walk up the hill to the acropolis and then wind your way through the ruins down. The area around the hotel looks run down but was very safe and a lot of Athens looked run down to be honest! The best part of the hotel was the view of the acropolis from the roof which made for a very pleasant breakfast (and the coffee was decent!) and a great start to the day. In terms of the room, you get what you pay for, although aesthetically it could do with a makeover, the shower was powerful,good wifi, good aircon the bed comfy and the tv had BBC world news. If you plan to be out and about for most of the day, this is a good hotel to choose. We were able to walk to most of the places we wanted to get to. It was also really easy to get to the port for seven in the morning!
