    Stunning view from room and rooftop bar. Whilst obviously a converted building and a simple product, it had been finished to a high standard. Good sheets and comfortable bed. Excellent service in bar on a Friday night despite a wedding taking place and lots of trendy local customers!

    Breakfast orange juice was actually squash but reception staff mentioned that this would be changed very soon- hotel only open 8 weeks.

    The hotel has an unforgettable view on the Acropolis. The rooms are spacious and the decoration is tastefull. The staff is so helpfull and nice. We arrived at 2 oclock in the middle of the night after hours of delay on our yourney and the staff gave us a superior room with a balcony and view on the Acropolis. The bar on the roof is a great place to have a cocktail and breakfast is served on the roof.

    A lot a noise during the night. The hotel is at Monastiraki, the heart of nightlife in Athens. Screaming taxidrivers, singing and drunk people disturb your sleep during the night and unfortunately the windows are not super isolated. We slept with earplugs. Breakfast is basic for a hotel of that standard.

    Perfect location in the heart of Athens. Brand new hotel, beautiful view from the roof bar, where breakfast is served. Babybed was ready when we arrived. Perfect hotel for a visit to Athens.

    The elevators are small and slow.

    Superb

    Location, location, location. Right on Monastiraki which is very central with many of the main attractions within easy walking distance. Friendly staff who went above and beyond to ensure I had a pleasant stay. The biggest asset to this hotel is the view from the 6th floor bar with an uninterrupted view of the Acropolis. Great for winding down with a cocktail watching the sunset. Recommended highly.

    Although you can pay extra for a good view towards the Acropolis, in my slightly cheaper room, the window overlooked a pretty nasty looking side street. Was not a major problem though.

    Exceptional

    New, clean, good sized (for an inner city hotel) room and bathroom. Helpful, friendly staff. Great view from the breakfast restaurant - of the Monastiriki square and of the Acropolis. We had a similar view from our room - as we had requested when booking. Good location in the heart of old Athens with ancient sites and shopping within easy walking distance. Being next to the Metro station (on the airport line) makes it really easy to travel to and from.

    There is nothing about the hotel that we disliked enough to stop us going back. The lift is a bit small and slow so be prepared for a delay at times (E.G. checkout time). Bed pillows are fat (even their small pillows) so if you like a very thin pillow you might have to ask specially for one (don't know if they have them). The noise from the square is minimally intrusive in the room - really no more than you would expect in a busy part of the city.

    Friendly staff, awesome location literally right next to Monastiraki metro station. Good breakfast with an excellent view of the acropolis. Really good bed, also air-con was nice. Would definately stay again.

    The street were you enter looked kind of like a dump, and the elevator who basically fits two people (especially if one has some luggage) were at times really annoying when you had to wait for 2-3 minutes just to get in the elevator. Not a big problem though.

    Fabulous

    1) Excellent location, Metro entrance is just next door! 2) Acropolis view fr my room is amazing! 3) the rooftop bar (also the place for breakfast) is cool!

    1) It is facing the Square & road, a bit noisy at night 2) the lift extremely small, can barely accomodate 4 persons, the rooftop bar is quite popular there so at night, many people going there. We need to queue & wait long for the lift! 3)Choice of breakfast is not wide enough.

    Absolutely fantastic for everything. We are impressed by friendly staffs, stylish rooms, and stunning views of Acropolis and square. Breakfast is really nice and the view from the roof is superb. This is one of the best hotels we've ever been.

    The hotel staff were great. Also the view from the rooftop bar was excellent! Breathtaking views directly facing Acropolis. Also rooms have big glasses facing Acropolis. Brand new hotel!

    All staff have been exceptional and especially kind. Breakfast buffet also very good. The view of the Acropolis was absolutely fantastic from my room even more from roof top where the breakfast served. Free wireless everywhere!! Rooms and bathrooms were stylish, modern and clean. What do I have to say about the location..metro station Monastiraki is 5 meters away from the entrance of the hotel, commercial streets and the area of nightlife such as Psirri, Gazi and Plaka in walking distance. Great value for money. I surely recommend this hotel to everyone. Ps I did the check in 3 hours earlier without any problem
