... on trade and being socially comfortable (sounds like somewhere else I know). Rome eventually took over Corinth and salted the land making it inhabitable. Singing for a high school audience, or really doing anything for a high school audience, is sure to be entertaining. I felt like the bass section had a solid last performance and overall we hit all the notes and queues. That being said, I could only reminisce my high ...
... harem pants. Let that sink in. Denim harem pants. There were a few Minoan frescoes and some things from Thera, a settlement that might have been the inspiration for Atlantis and was destroyed by a volcano and swallowed by the sea. Then I set off for what was supposedly the ruins of a sanctuary to Artemis and where she supposedly took Iphigeneia after demanding her sacrifice then sparing her right before be Trojan War. My app led me to someone's ...
... left four and a half hours before our flight. A little overkill but we thought we would rather be at the terminal really early rather than miss our flight.
Well after the first one and a half hours in which we had only moved two kilometres down the road we started to get a little nervous. So too did a lot of other passengers that had flights to catch, presumably a lot earlier than ours, and after much consultation with the passengers going to the airport the ...
... was a great option sitting in an air conditioned car taking us to visit the Parthenon Acropolis, Temple of Olympian Zeus Parliament House, The University and the library. Finishing off we drove along the coast of Greece to the most southern point to the Temple of Poiseden overlooking the sea then off to the airport. A very memorable tour with lots of photos. It is amazing what we saw in Athens in less than a day. Thankyou Dimitrious, our taxi ...

We spent about four hours in the hospital, during which time they hooked Rachelle up to an IV drip to bring her fever down, and did blood and urine tests, an ultrasound, and X-rays. The good news was that she didn't have malaria, the bad news was that they didn't really have much to say regarding ...

Historical Traveler Reviews O&B Athens Boutique Hotel
Great hotel, accomodating, hidden location
We stayed in this hotel for 5 days in September. The location is not in the best part of Athens and is in fact somewhat hidden (i.e. some of the taxi drivers do not know where it is) but it is within a couple block walk of the Monastiraki train station and old Agora. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms among the biggest in the various hotels we have stayed at. The breakfast, which is included, was excellent. Service was warm and hospitable. They charged for internet access but this seems the norm for Greece. There are some very good restaurants nearby but you need to know what you are looking for (good food over ambiance). Would definitely stay there again.
Don't be fooled by the swanky pictures on their web-site or the questionable reviews below.... this place is located in perhaps the worst part of Athens. The street is full of adult rated shops, discount mattress sellers and burned out shop fronts.
It was a real treat to stay at Ochre and Brown on our return from the islands this year. Above all, the staff were outstanding and made the stay memorable - service really could not have been better or more helpful or friendlier! We were absolutely delighted.
Trendy and super location
We find this hotel has a great location , very trendy and clean with a staff that did everything to please us.We stayed here 2 nights before returning home after a trip to Crete and Spetses it was perfect . We recommand this hotel ,it is a small hotel with a personal touch.
My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at the end of our island hopping honeymoon, the hotel is stylish, intimate and in a good location for exploring Athens by foot, both day and night. Above all else the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming.

Perfect Hotel in Athens
I stayed at this hotel in Sept 2006. I found it to be very clean/ stylish with friendly staff. It was perfectly situated for two days sightseeing in Athens. I would strongly recommend this as a place to stay.
We stayed in the hotel for 2 days in April. It's very centrally located, only a few meters walk from the subway station. The hotel is new (it opened in December 2005).
The rooms are very clean and have very comfortable beds, new stylish furnishings and high-tech equipments (CD & DVD players...).
The breakfast is generous and the personnel polite, smiley and helpful. Taking all this into consideration, it was an excellent value for money.
The elevator is indeed small but since there are only 11 rooms in the hotel we never had to wait in order to use them.
We are looking forward to visit it again soon
Not so good
It is not so good. The staff is not so friendly and we had problem with the air-condition! The location is good but the hotel is not a four star hotel! The servibce is for two stars!
What an amzing little hotel! The Ochre and Brown is small but perfectly formed. It is stylish and comfortable and located in the coolest part of the city (Psiri) near to some great clubs and restaurants. The rooms are not huge but they are comfortable and have all the amenities you might require. But the best bit is the amazing service you recieve from really friendly and attentive staff..... nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are huge and really tasty by the way! Definately stay here if you can it's well worth the money.
Having just returned from a 4 night stay, we fully recommend Ochre & Brown to those looking for a really good non-chain modern exceptionally clean hotel very well located in the centre of Athens/near the main tourist sites and newly trendy districts of Psiri and Gazi.
