Simple but clean and comfortable. This hotel is a great location, short walk to Acropolis, metro and right in the city centre so we were spoiled for choice when it came to breakfast, lunch or dinner. Breakfast is €5 but we decided to get pastries from down the street which I'm sure was a cheaper option.
Bathroom is a good size, water pressure is excellent and nice steamy hot showers. For the price it was fantastic and we'd stay here again.

... Athena and Poseidon. A olive tree grows here to remind people of the myth. If you could look inside the temple it's said a trident mark is in the floor, apparently from Poseidon. The maiden sculptures holding up part of the roof are recreations. Five of the originals are in the Acropolis museum, the sixth is in the British museum. We got a great view of Athens from on top the Acropolis. We explored the southern slope. The theatre ...

I have been looking for a 3/4 length jacket for a long time but haven't found anything suitable back in Oz but I asked here and was shown upstairs into a room that was chockers full with all sorts, shapes and sizes. I tried quite a few before I found one that was the type I ...
... of being a feast for the mossies...tough one isn't it! Went with a bit of both. And did spray myself with areoguard at some point in the night! We packed up and reluctantly left our bags in a store room next to the reception...hoping for the best! Off we went in search of some old stuff and culture. We found it, eventually. Wandered on through 'Zeus's Temple' then attempted to get into the 'acropolis museum' but our tickets weren't valid for that ...
... waves ( like a lake). I learned that how I had tried to ask for clothespins at the market (clipping gestures and exclamations of Plyntirio!) was super offensive. Apparently, clipping you fingers in an
outwards, round motion is a Greek gesture for get away, move. This is probably
one of the many reasons the supermarket workers ran from me.
We returned from the beach for a swim in the hotel pool and
