Other than location this place was a disaster. AC didn't work, water damage on walls and floor. Breakfast was OK, if you could get a table.

At the end of the day I come home to make dinner, shower, and work on homework. It's a very limited experience of Athens. We spend most days within a half-mile from home. To be honest, it's a little disappointing. Rome felt like a vacation for two months (even though we did have class and homework) ...

There are lots of dogs around, just ignoring people or lying asleep in a bit of shade. Older ladies are sitting around the place keeping an eye on things and when some one sneaks under a rope for a better photo they blow their whistle to tell them off. It works really well.
