Hotel is very clean with friendly staff. Breakfast is yoghurt, fruit, meat and cheeses etc 7am-10am. Bar opens at 6pm. View from rooftop is fantastic. Hotel is close to all of the main sights (within walking distance) and has an abundance of cafes and restaurants nearby.

Lovely clean budget hotel . Felt very welcome at this friendly little hotel close to loads of bars and restaurants came with an awesome breakfast with views of the Acropolis thrown in . Has a great roof top to sit on and just absorb the city. Walking distance to everything you want . We will be back .

We went as a couple and had nice room, the only problem was that we had two separate beds. But after the first night, without asking, they gave us a different room with a 2 person bed. Which was really more comfortable. breakfast was at the 7th floor with a great view on the Acropolis, and the breakfast it self was good. The neighborhood where the hotel is in, looks bad but is actually not so bad. We did't had bad experiences, but i can image that a woman doesn't feel safe here So i can reall... Read more

We were assured that it is not a dangerous neighbourhood just in need of urban regeneration. The rooms are fine and the shower is suitable for children under 5.

This is a great hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean. The area is a little weird but we walked the area during the day and night and did not have any problems. The hotel offers breakfast with a nice variety of things (cereal, toast, eggs, croissants, coffee, juice and/or tea). The best part is that you can have breakfast while admiring the wonderful view of the acropolis. You can also walk to the acropolis.

We agree with the previous reviews that this neighbourhood is a bit rundown but within a couple of minutes walk you are in some great places. Psiri neighbourhood is known for music, it's just a few minutes to the Plaka, Monastaraki, and Syntagma neighbourhoods including Acropolis, National Gardens, Temple of the Olympian Zeus, Agora, etc. Great restaurants and bars in all these places. During the week the neighbourhood is busy with shops that sell everything from shoes to spices to meat and chee... Read more

Great facilities. Clean. Helpful, friendly and accomodating staff. Only stayed for one night. The room was reasonably spacious and had a balcony over looking a run-down street. Diagonally opposite was a colourfully painted house that's definitely worth a photograph or two. The approach to the hotel is a bit off-putting. It's less than ten minutes from Monastaraki but you have to walk down some pretty run-down streets to get there. Once inside it's a little oasis. There's a stylish lobby with c... Read more

I stayed here for one night in June. While first impressions of the street might not be great, the friendly staff and lovely accomodation made up straight away! The staff were very helpful to point me in the right direction and give me advice. While the building itself may look old, the rooms are quite nice. The breakfast was great with lots to choose from and has a brilliant view of the Acropolis. Lots within walking distance so location is great!

The location of the hotel is excellent. It is 100 meters from "Psaris" and 300 meters from monastiraki/Ermou. Both receptionists were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and specious (I stayed alone). The area around the hotel does not look very safe for walking at night (but I guess this is the case for many places of a big city like Athens).

I spent one and my last night at Evripides: a single room with a full size bed and full bath. Room was very clean, black-out curtains and a very good AC. Location wise it's within a 5-10min walk of Monistirakiou Center, and not far from a nice set of local restaurants in "Hero's Square" (crossroads of Aristofanous and Ag. Anargiron).

This hotel was great value and well situated for sight seeing. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms spotlessly clean. Breakfast offered a good variety for all tastes with great views of the Acropolis. The only downside is the hotel is situated in a rather run down area and we didn't always feel safe walking to the hotel especially at night. However there were lots of police around - not sure if this is a good or a bad thing!

When visiting Athens, the Psiri neighborhood is probably the best place to have your base-station. I've visited Athens before and will always try to find a hotel nearby.

The location might not be for everyone (it's perhaps a bit edgy for older couples and families) but we thought it was great. A lovely, practical, budget option. Room was spacious and cool. Breakfast was good for the money. And we really liked having the roof top bar area with really cheap beer and wine to ourselves. We'd stay here again.

Good value for money hotel - the location is convenient - only a 15 minute walk to the Acropolis, a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro and just a 2 minute walk around the corner to lots of trendy bars and restaurants. The hotel bar itself has great views of the Acropolis and is very cheap (two euros for a glass of good wine!). Would recommend for a basic but comfortable and convenient stay.

I??ve reviewed this hotel before because we always stay there. I??d just like to draw attention to the roof bar and restaurant. It has always provided spectacular views of the Acropolis, but until this June visitors had to contend with pigeons trying to snaffle your breakfast and the rather chilly winds which blew into the open outside area. This has now been transformed by huge glass windows which mean that you can enjoy the view fully. We were glad to see that the ever cheerful Dimitra st... Read more

It's difficult to understand where all the positive reviews are coming from. This is a basic budget hotel, but not at a budget price. (I had been mislead by the price and by the positive reviews into thinking it would be a lot more comfortable.) The rooms are clean, but nothing special. The breakfast buffet was poor quality: again, it would have been acceptable in a budget hotel, but not at this price. But the view from the roof terrace is great.
