The outside was the best part. The hotel felt run down, especially the rooms which had NO view (a brick wall and the local cats) and very noisy air con. Hotel position was rather a long way from the old centre of Athens though very convenient for the museum & a very nice square with variety of good restaurants. Breakfast on rooftop was adequate & staff were ok.

(Be sure to buy Krokos Kozanis Saffron from the airport. I buy it for myself but I give it as present to friends as well. Believe me it makes an excellent personal gift).
... fairly sketchy part of town (last time I let someone else book hotels and flights without me checking it out), so we had to use the metro pretty much every day to see anything, or go anywhere to eat. This being said, we got really good at using the metro, which made the city feel more "ours". It was nice, getting to see different types of people, and seeing parts of the city (some of the metro was above ground). The food was absolutely incredible everywhere ...
During Saturday/Sunday night, someone came into the room while Victoria (my new bestest buddy) and I slept, our last two Australians having left either the day before or that day, I can't really remember now. Anyway, it was full on night and my stuff was everywhere, so I moved my purse out of the way in case the person wanted the bed beside me. The next morning, I woke up and didn't remember the new roommate. I was on a single bed with ...
