Centrally located

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 23, 2008

Location:
- Very centrally and conveniently located.
- 5 minutes walk from Metro Akropolis station.
- Walking distance to Acroplis, Ancient Angora, Temple of Zeus, Plaka neighborhood, national garden, Philosopher’s hill and so on major touristy sites.
- The street block where the hotel is does not look exciting, there are a few run down looking houses until the end of street where the brand new hotel building with a Greece flag in front (also a tall stainless glass peacock) appears. It seems rather safe around there, though.
- The hotel’s roof garden restaurant has a reasonable view of the Parthnon.

Access:
- From/To the ATH airport
Metro:
Take Blue line to Syntagma station, then transfer to Red line (towards Agios Dimitrios direction), get off at the next station Akropolis. Then 5 minutes walk to the hotel.
Total Metro time takes about 45 minutes, and €5 per person.

When going to the ATH, one needs to be careful getting on the right blue line train. Not all of them goes to ATH, some stops at Plakentias only, then you have to transfer to a suburban train to ATH (we were very lucky to have a very kind man helped us, we were very grateful).

Bus:
In case the Metro is not available, you can take the Express bus route 95 from ATH to Syntagma Square, then transfer to Metro Red line (towards Agios Dimitrios direction) or taxi to the hotel.

Reception/Lobby:
- The lobby (Floor 0) is very nicely designed (the deco somewhat reminds me of Frank Wright elements).
- It has a sitting area with two sofas for you to view a few books full of beautiful photos of Greece while either waiting for your room to be ready or meeting up with friends.
- It also has a bar in the lobby.
- Staff are serious with their duty and resourceful.

Unique Quality: Room (303):
General:
- This room has a small balcony facing the Falirou street, and a view of partial top of Parthenon afar.
- We requested a non-smoking room, but our room has an ash tray.
- The safe is not large enough for a small lap top.
- It has a refrigerator, good for us to stock up fruit bought from nearby stores.
- TV has English channels.
- It provides slippers

Bed:
- One firm queen size bed (maybe too firm for some people).

Bathroom:
- This is the best bathroom during our entire Greece trip. The bathtub/shower combination unit has well installed three-penal sliding doors. No water leaking during shower. The toilet leaked from time to time, though.
- Nice towels. It is the only one has a clothes line.
- During our Greek trip, we often saw a pull string on the wall next to the bath tub, we do not know what that is for. I pulled once or twice, nothing happened. 
- Nice black marble looking sink top (large) and floors.
- It also has a close-up mirror.

Breakfast/Buffet (included in the room rate):
- The breakfast area is at the same floor where lobby is. It has a dome shaped ceiling.
- The dining area is very nice, artistic and comfortable.
- Food includes the usual stuff we had everywhere, except it has one unique thing is the strawberry jam tart.

Internet:
- Free wireless internet was never worked in the room during our three days’ stay. The staff could not solve the issue. As a result, we had to use the public computer in the conference room (Floor H). The computer there was old and internet connection not the fastest so be patient.

Close to the center.

I liked very much the location (very close to the metro station) and a nice walk to syntagma square. I also enjoy the nice room, small, but nice decorated...i can easily say "warm".
Also there is a parking place.

Unique Quality: I gave an apoitment with some friends in the hotel restaurant, because of the stormy weather we couldn t go out, and the Acropolis view was fantastic, all the scene was fantastic.
