Nice hotel close to sights

Staff were outstanding. Roof bar has wonderful view and serves breakfast there but at night it's open to public and noisy and crowded. Rooms spacious and well appointed. Next to Monastiraki Metro so excellent for getting around.

A for Athens is in a great location and the staff were excellent. The room was spacious and a big shower. The only downside was that the smoke smell filtered through the air conditioning.

Noisy hotel in the centre of Athens

Pros: staff were friendly.
Cons: double glazing and a no smoking policy
Location: right on top of monastiraki square
We were recommended to stay at this hotel. Our first room had a stench of cigarettes. We dropped our bags to go out for dinner. on our return the room still stank. as a side note, the noise from the square below was so loud you couldn't hear the tv in the room. great view of the acropolis, which of course we paid extra for. we asked once for a different room, which we were told no rooms available. after about an hour of the smell we asked again, and were moved to a new room, which smelt great in comparison. also not as much noise from the square. so basically, i paid for an expensive acropolis view room which smelt and was so noisy a normal person would not have been able to sleep.
