Very centrally located in terms of sightseeing and transport (3-4 minutes on foot to/from Monastiraki subway station / Hadrian's library), with magnificient views from the roof terrace (Acropolis, Lycabetus, etc.) and some of the rooms. Breakfast includes a huge variety of Greek food and is administered by extremely cordial staff. Rooms and common areas look modern and well-maintained. read hotel review

Love this hotel. It is my third stay - this time I checked out other recommend hotels for my next visits. After visiting five other hotels, I decided I have already found the perfect hotel for my time in Athens. The roof top terrace is the wonderful with comfortable seating, wifi, and a direct view of the acropolis. All of the staff are welcoming and helpful - one of my favorites is Elsa who serves drinks on the rooftop. The hotel is located next to just about everything that you will do in a short visit and close to the ... metro stations. Rooms are very nice and a/c works great. Breakfast is a great selection of hot and cold. Highly recommend. read hotel review

My second stay at this hotel was just as good as the first. The hotel is clean, friendly and well equipped. Breakfast is plentiful. However, it is the location and the roof top view of the acropolis that cannot be beat! Highly recommend. read hotel review

Centrally located in Athens

  • December 2014
The location was centrally located with the view of Acropolis. The staff were more than helpful. We stayed here for only two nights . The bedroom was very clean and we slept very comfortably, the bathroom was modern. Breakfast was basic but highly recommended for dinner around the main street. The highlight of the hotel was the view of the acropolis from the hotel terrace read hotel review

Expected more!
  • Recommended hotel

  • City break
  • May 2014
I expected more from this hotel as it is a little more expensive than their sisters Hermes Hotel. But staying in Hermes fist, Plaka was not what I expected it to be. Its more futher away from the airport buss station and its located on the busy street where you can hear the noise even late at night with the windows closed. The hotel itself looks dark, old and I would say it needs some renovation (compering to Hermes hotel). At least the size of the room was huge and I guess you pay for the view from the rooftop ... terrace because noone can compete that!:) read hotel review

It is a small hotel with rooms of reasonable size (over 15 sq m), some offering a wonderful view of the Parthenon temple. The breakfast room is quite decent, bright and cheerful with a view of the street. read hotel review

    Unfortunately, there is no fitness centre or swimming pool in the hotel. A shopping street is located a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.

  • Room

    The room is spacious enough (around 15 sq m), the design simple and not particularly appealing. However, my room had a nice view of the Parthenon temple on the top of the hill.

    Breakfast was European / mediterranean style and good. I liked the design of the breakfast room with a lot of windows overlooking the street below.

    It is very conveniently located, with a lot of restaurants, coffee shops and stores nearby. The city's pedestrian-zone shopping street Ermou is less than 100m away, and also is a walking distance from Monastiraki where you can find a metro station and the path up to the Ancient Agora of Athens.
