Location. Location. Location. Walking distance to the Acropolis and temple of Zeus. Staff is amazingly curteious and very helpful. Very clean. Excellent food. Balcony was huge with great views. We were on the 7th floor. Hotel has 8 floors. a note on the side to anyone going from the airport to the city, take the X95 metro. It's only 5euros/person and it takes 45min plus a 10min walk to the hotel. It's much more economical than a taxi for 45euros.
The location of this hotel is perfect! Over the years I have come to prefer boutique style hotels because of the customer service and intimate feeling. AthensWas did not disappoint. It's new, modern, and again the location can't be beat. Acropolis is only a short walk away!
Helpful and friendly staff, wonderful rooftop bar and restaurant with great views of Parthenon. The hotel is located on a quiet street, but it is near most of the major attractions, with the new Acropolis Museum only a block away. The Metro station is also only a block away, making it very convenient to travel by Metro (which is very new and clean--great way to get around Athens). Many restaurants are close by, but you will definitely want to check out the rooftop restaurant of the hotel--it has a delicious menu and great service. This hotel is very comfortable, and the helpful and welcoming staff make it a pleasant place to stay. I would absolutely recommend it to friends, and I would probably choose it as the place I would stay if I have the opportunity to visit Athens again in the future.

The hotel is handy for first time travelers to Athens just like we were. We took the metro from ATH airport and walked a few blocks from the station to the hotel. It has a large lobby that is most common with luxury hotels. The staff were the usual European business-like demeanor, direct and helpful.
I was looking for a cheaper hotel which was clean, close to Avis rental cars (very close) for the first night in Athens before we went on a road trip. I have been in Athens several times, and I have done WAY worse than this. It is not a 5 only since it does not have that extra level I expect in a higher level hotel, but met my expectations.
On the southern edge of Plaka, the pedestrianised archaeological promenade skirts the foot of the Acropolis, cutting between the pine-covered slopes of Filopappos Hill and Herodes Theatre (built 2 AD), hosting open-air performances through summer. Close by is the New Acropolis Museum, designed by Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi.
