We spent five nights in a superior room, with breakfast included. We had an 'evil eye' room which was wonderfully decorated, clean and comfortable, if not that spacious. Comfortable bed, good aircon and free wifi appreciated. Small little things were missing from housekeeping but promptly dealt with once we notified reception.
We arrived early and the staff were very welcoming, offering us drinks of water on arrival and they did their best to arrange for us to check in early, after only a little wait.
Hotel is decorated in wonderful, modern, creative decor from the lobby, throughout the rooms, to the roof top. Loved the use of recycled materials used so creatively throughout the design. One of the best contemporary designed hotels we have stayed in.
Perfect location, in the centre of Athens, walking distance to most main sites and Plaka area.
Enjoyed delicious breakfast daily, good selection with eggs made to order to your liking. Also had dinner in the restaurant downstairs which we enjoyed. Dinner on the rooftop restaurant which much the same, except with wonderful views.
Roof top terrace is a great place to relax for a drink in the evening after a busy day, with great views over Athens.
Staff were always friendly and helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

From the bus we put our bags in the ferry building and then went off to have lunch while we waited for the ferry. A group of us had gyros at a restaurant with plenty of shade it was nice just to relax and talk. After lunch i went for a ...
... middle, smaller on both the bottom and the top, and were strategically tilted inward to support the roof. This, combined with the design of the roof, creates the illusion that the Parthenon is actually straight when seen from the city below. However, while you walk around it, you can see these features and realize how brilliant and advanced the architectural approach was for a construction built 2,500 years ago.

... with Gypsies, who are
persistent thieves, and stray dogs, who roam in packs and who are sick and
mangy. Despite the dogs at every stop,
we enjoyed the bus tour sites, getting out to take pictures of the Olympic
stadium and video for the changing of the guards at the Parliament.
We walked through Athenian streets to a Taverna, with live

Just around the corner, we could see the ruins of the Temple of Zeus with the Acropolis in the background. A free walking tour took us past the major sites in the city. Hadrian's Gate, the Parliament and changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Agora ...
