Positive Reviews

Rooftop terrace offering Acropolis views

The hotel’s rooftop terrace is undeniably its top feature. Guests love heading up to the roof and taking in the picturesque views of the Acropolis, views which prove to be unobscured and unforgettable. The panoramic views prove to be the ideal backdrop for breakfast in the morning or a drink at night.

Central location in historical Plaka

Tourists looking to take in the historic sights and sounds of Athens will find themselves perfectly positioned at this hotel. Many of the city’s top landmarks – including the Acropolis, Hadrian’s Arch, and the Panathenaic Stadium – are all within a 15-minute walk, a detail guests are quick to mention in their reviews.

Good standard of cleanliness

Guests are impressed with the standard of cleanliness at this hotel. They report that rooms and public spaces are kept clean and tidy at all times.

Negative Reviews

Outdated rooms in need of TLC

Guests tend to be disappointed with the quality of rooms at the hotel, suggesting that they are marred by outdated décor, worn fittings, and a general sense of disrepair. Those staying in basement rooms go on to complain about the compact size of rooms and a lack of natural light.

Unsatisfactory bathroom arrangements

According to reports, guest rooms include a wet room-style bathroom, an arrangement that receives plenty of criticism. These rooms, guests report, are very small with old fittings. Furthermore, they lack a shower screen or curtain, which results in every square centimetre being covered in water during a shower.

Noisy air conditioning

Those trying to catch forty winks during the hot summer months find they must choose between a cool room with a particularly noisy air conditioner running, or a hot and stuffy room with it switched off.
