This hotel is recently renovated, clean, has friendly staff and is ideally located to easily walk to most of the ancient sites in the city center. It even has a rooftop deck with a great view of the acropolis hill perfect for sipping wine and ending the day. I would stay here again if I returned to Athens and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Fabulous location in Plaka, easy access for many of the ruins, walking distance. Restaurants, shops, bars, all in that location. There were 4 of us staying there and we would definitely stay there again.

Awesome boutique hotel

This hotel is too cute. It is in walking distance to everything. The staff was extremely nice. The continental breakfast is limited but who cares when you have the view of the acropolis.
