Very pleasantly surprised with my recent stay at AthensWAS. This was relatively last minute trip so didn't have the luxury of spending much one on research. Thinking I wanted to stay in the Acropolis area, I surfed arourn and came across this boutique style hotel which fits my like. Location is great ..just 5 mins from the Acropolis and the Museuem. Staff are very friendly and incredibly helpful - Barbara did a great job finding me a nice local (non-tourist) dinner spot. Rooms and facilities are real nice..and the free breakfast/wi-fi are well stocked. Would definitely stay here again!
Friendly and helpful staff, quite generally knowledgable about transportation, sights, etc. very well located for walking to historic sites (Acropolis, Agoras,) near museums and convenient to the Metro. Great full breakfast served late enough in the morning to facilitate a two- meal day. Very pleasant reasonably priced hotel restaurant with good food and, again, pleasant staff. Comfortable room, small but nicely outfitted bathroom. Finally, reasonably priced with the help, of course, of a strong dollar.
Arrived early after disembarking from a cruise. We were able to check in early. Room was spacious and comfortable. Staff was friendly as well as helpful. Breakfast was not included and thought price was expensive. Rooms had fridges and kitchen facilities so good place to stay if you are planning to stay for a period of time as can have breakfast in the room and if so inclined can also cook.

My wife and I spent 4 nights there. The location is great - very close to the Acropolis and to a subway station. The room was clean, the breakfast good. The room/restroom were somewhat tight, but I could fit (taller and broader than average). The beds were flat and comfortable. The wifi was Ok, apart from the Friday night.
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.
