This hotel is great on the eye, it's beautiful, decorated with taste and very clean, the best bit is the rooftop bar and swimming-pool, where I spent my last day. Even though my room didn't have a great view, as it was just an ugly building, it didn't matter, as my room was so beautiful and roomy. I love Korres products and was very happy to find some in my bathroom. It is very near Omonia station, 5 minutes max. The breakfast is very very good and the waitresses very polite and pleasant.
We stayed for four nights and it was excellent. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. They booked tours for us and showed us sites to visit on a local map. They also gave good advice about the metro.
We had an unusual knocking sound in our ceiling and, when we reported it at breakfast, we were immediately offered a room change. We declined the offer and returned later and noticed workers in the ceiling outside fixing the problem. We had no more noise from then on. Brilliant!
Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. No kettle in the room although free tea, coffee, and biscuits were available in the lobby.
There is a fresh fruit and vegetable market outside which also has a huge range of olives and nuts for sale at a low price.
The rooftop bar has incredible views of the city and out to the sea. The hotel is near a Carrefour and a Bazaar supermarket as well as a Hondos Centre where you can get some duty-free bargains. There are numerous restaurants, cafes, and bars nearby. There is a flea market near the Acropolis which is also within walking distance.
The Monastiraki metro station, on the line which goes directly to and from the airport, is less than five minutes walk away. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the airport on the metro which is better than being in a taxi and stuck in Athens traffic! The first metro train to the airport leaves Monastiraki station at 0535.
We had a great time in Athens and would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Tired hotel with bathroom needing a complete refurb and air conditioning was fairly inefficient.
Great roof top though with a bar and a small pool which was refreshing after a hot day visiting.
Overall - decent hotel
This hotel is in the heart of the market. It is small clean, safe and cheap. The wifi was excellent. Do not expect a separate shower from the toilet, and the rooms are tiny. Bed is ok but stiff. Overall ok, but you get what you pay for.

Recently renovated room, with excellent staffs, you won't find nicer staffs at another hotel. The location is very convenient, we didn't take bus or anything to Acropolis.
Just 2things, the environment - the whole Athens is not in good shape, but the streets are oddly clean; the sound proof - not very good.
Overall, we love our stay. The service is like 4-stars hotel. The room is definitely like a 3-stars hotel.
I was nearly convinced to give up this hotel by the negatives about comfort and neighborhood. Both are actually OK (Omonia is now a much better quarter than it used to be). I am very glad I stayed there my 2 nights in Athens. No security problems, never felt unsafe day or night. Staff is lovely, helpful and precise.

close to all the sites interested to see, front desk and the rest of the of workers very nice and attentive to all your needs, ready all the time to help you with the questions that you can have, and recommending places to go and eat making your state more pleasant.
The only negative thing will be the smoking in the lobby and front desk, no very pleasant when you are having breakfast. Also the WIFI it is only at the lobby, making your state at lobby no to pleasant.
Once an area of leather tanning workshops, Psirri was transformed a few years back to make it Athens’ prime nightspot. Packed with an ever-growing range of bars, tavernas, and dance clubs, it offers mainstream entertainment. Several Latin and Oriental-themed bars add the spice. Psirri lives after dark, though the nearby Central Market is worth a look in by day.
