Friendly Staff and Great Location

It was a girls trip. We loved the location, the breakfast buffet, the friendliness of staff and the great Acropolis view of our room. The only problem were the doors of the rooms. Everybody needs a certain force to close their doors so you can wake up at 3 AM to your neighbor coming back if you are a light sleeper. Other than that, everything was super!

  • Liked: Cleanliness

Stayed four nights bed and breakfast - February 2020 - Room 12 - first floor. The hotel is located on Monastiraki Square with our room facing the Acropolis. Room 12 is a "junior suite" with a seating area and picture window. Tea/coffee/water/soft drinks included. A fridge is provided - thankfully not a mini-bar. Bathroom has a shower - toiletries provided. Sheets were only changed after three nights. Having a room overlooking the square/Acropolis appeared to be a good option. Unfortunately some idiots in the square play bongo drums until late in the evening - annoying. The safe was not locking. I had to ask three people before someone bothered to attend and change the batteries. I was treated like a stupid foreigner who does not know how to set the lock. Breakfast is served in the 6th floor rooftop bar, which has good views over the city. Breakfast is a buffet selection. Unfortunately the hot food was only lukewarm. The first time I mentioned this, I was ignored, in that the lady did not even bother to answer me. The second time I was told - "We are two fires down" - which I think was a reference to the heaters below the serving containers. I suggested that it is was unsafe to serve food like this and was told that it was not unsafe. I did not bother trying any hot food after that. If you cannot serve hot food, do not bother - eventually someone will get ill.
