"Great efficient hotel, poor area"
We stayed as a couple here in the cheapest double room for 2 nights. The hotel itself is compact and basic but implements this very well. The room, albeit small had everything we would need - TV, hairdryer, safe, soaps etc. The breakfast in the mornings was great and well worth paying for. The location is not great, I am glad I travelled with a male as I would not feel safe on my own. In saying that, if you wish to walk for longer, then you can follow the main road. Surrounding small streets that are quickest to the metro are dark and have beggars and smell from the rubbish. I would be happy to stay again however would probably pay more for a bigger room as it was a tight squeeze with our suitcases. If you're spending all day everyday sightseeing then its not much of a problem and beneficial since its only a 5-10min walk from the metro. I would possibly stay elsewhere in a nicer neighbourhood if a bigger room is the same price as another equally reputable hotel in a safer area. Overall very clean and modern and staff (24h receptionist) all very friendly.
"Very good hotel in a very bad neighborhood "
We stayed here with a group around and in new year. It is very difficult to rate this hotel as it is good with very nice and clean rooms, very good and helpful staff, but it is located in Omonia which looks more like a North African town than Athens. Greek people don’t live in Omonia any more and the area is full of immigrants and homeless people sleeping in every corner. It is crowded and the hotel is on a Main Street which is good but it may be scary. One evening at 3.30, there was an incredibly loud disco music which woke all of us up. But the hotel is nice, very clean, the metro is close by. Athens is not so big so you can easily walk to Syntagma, Plaka or Monastraki in about half an hour ( maybe less). The shampoo and shower gel are of excellent quality with olive oil. Yes, the bathroom is made of opaque glass. If that will bother you, it may be a problem. The breakfast room is small and not so nice with half windows but it is good with cheese, ham, tomatoes, olives, jam ( try esp. the fig), Cereal and delicious pies ( try the spinach pie). There is free WiFi. The two elevators are very fast and efficient. However there is no lobby or waiting room if you are waiting for something. But you can weigh your luggage for 1 euro. One special tip: Don’t ask the man at the reception for a restaurant and don’t go to the restaurant he recommends giving you a brochure ( club Neon) as it is like a school cafeteria, cold and bland food if anything remains for the evening). There are much nicer places in Athens. For example, you can try the Athinaikon in Omonia district, a nice and old typical Greek meze Restaurant.
"Definitely not a 4 star hotel"
I was seriously unimpressed with this hotel. As soon as I entered the room smelt of cigarettes which was horrible. Had to sleep with the windows open. The area is not that nice at night but it is ok to walk around in the morning and it is not a long way away from the centre. I am not sure where the 4 stars come in - this is NOT a 4 star hotel by any stretch of the imagination. At best, it is a 2 star. However, the staff was lovely and very helpful.
"Nice and clean"
This hotel is quite conveniently located near Omonia Square subway station (2 min. walk) and about 15 minutes walk to Ermou street. But it is in a neighbourhood appropriate only to cosmopolitan travellers. Do stay on big avenues at night. Apart from that, everything is fine with this hotel: staff is english speaking and very efficient; room with a fair enough size, good mattress and bedding, hair dryer, fridge, safety box, very strong free Wi Fi, acceptable breakfast, room price is very reasonable.
"Not really that chic"
Hotel has nice staff, helpful. Rooms and nicely decorated with most having balconies. A decent breakfast is what that can expected. Hotel located in the centre but not the best place in the centre. Room Size is pretty small. I would say it’s worth a stay only if you get the price right.
