Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very happy to return
I’m a repeat guest at this hotel. It’s so convenient for the Metro to the airport as well as to some fabulous restaurants and of course the Acropolis. The poolside bar is just perfect for a late afternoon wine looking up towards the Acropolis itself. The breakfast room is stunningly located on the eighth floor. The reception staff are welcoming and very personable. It’s quite an old-fashioned style hotel, and sometimes that makes a nice change from the minimalist and modern.I would definitely recommend this hotel. Are used to stay at the Bretagne, but it’s become overpriced and not good value in comparison to this little gem.

This is probably the best hotel in Athens. I was upgraded to a great room with view of the Acropolis, Plaka and the pool. All personel was kind and helpful. Breakfast was served in the room due to the covid situation.

Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The location of the hotel in the city center of Plaka is excellent and at the same time quiet. The view from the rooftop pool and rooftop restaurant area facing the Acropolis is simply stunning. However, the rooftop pool area is equipped with only 8 deckchairs (!!) and only a few tables equipped with chairs and (partly) umbrellas which is totally insufficient. Indeed the pool area is quite small but at least for busy times a lot more deckchairs could be stored somewhere else and made available if needed. Even considering all possible understanding for challenges during COVID times, but the situation during breakfast was not acceptable. Waiting times at the buffet could easily reach 15 minutes and reordering of coffee, juice or pepper and salt was a gamble whether you got it within 2 or 20 minutes; obviously with proper task management and flexible staff allocation this could be prevented. Overall, the courtesy and friendliness of the staff leaves room for improvement.
