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.

The day is hot and we are sweating it up outside on our walking tour working up an appetite.

The tour actually left us right at the station next to our hostel in Monastraki Square.
We docked early this morning but after too much fun last night the kids had to be dragged out of bed. Our guide George, of George's Taxis (I'm guessing there are a few George's that work there) picked us up at the gate and gave us a quick tour of the Port of Zea before heading up to the Acropolis. Once at the foot of the Acropolis we met our tour guide, Dora. A teacher who has gone on to do her doctorate in Greek history we couldn't have been in better hands. She had the kids ...
... could see the excavation of ancient Athens below us. We weren’t allowed to take any pictures until the top floor. We saw all the original sculptures of the Acropolis including the metapease, frieze, and caryatids. My legs were straining and my heels were hurting. We all walked back toward the hotel and sat down at our regular lunch spot and ordered gyros and salads. I tripped on the way there because I wasn’t looking where I was walking. All of Athens has broken ...
... Also Taylor Campbell played his solo guitar piece and Bennie Ashton played his piano piece, Blue Rondo ala Turk.
Before the concert began we had some time to mingle with the audience and meet some students. Many of the students were excited to talk with us and learn about who we are. It was nice to speak with the students before singing.
The concert was a lot of fun. The highlights for me was Blue Rondo ala Turk, I Got a Robe, ...
