I did the mystery hotel through Expedia and got this hotel. Check in was very quick and pleasant. They went through maps with us and gave us advice where to go and what to see in the area. This hotel is older so the rooms are spacious, very basic amenities but it's fine for resting your weary head.
You will not find a more convenient or more comfortable hotel when visiting the sights of Athens. Have breakfast early and be at the Acropolis within five minutes to beat the crowds and heat! The rooms and beds are extremely comfortable and quiet. Bathrooms are gorgeous with thick fluffy towels and a rainfall shower.
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.
