    Fabulous

    This hotel was really nice and clean. As it was overbooked, I was upgraded to a junior suite, which was really a very nice surprise. Rooms were enough big, bed was comfortable and big. This hotel situates in a small quiet side-street, still a bus stop is not far away and the connection with the city center was good. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    Compared to 4star hotels in Central-Europe the breakfest could be better. Still everything was fresh and delicious. They don't offer any porridges and I was suprised that there was no fresh juices. But these are my personal preferences.

    Superb

    Exellent staff, gourmet breakfast, nice location and safe ( next door to the US Embassy). Very near transport facilities and shops.

    Room was small for the price we paid and the shower was broken and needed to be repaired, we complained about it but nothing was done. Everytime we had a shower water and foam would flood the toilet floor, all they did was clean it.

    I had booked another hotel but the area it was in was not to my liking so I used the Internet and made a booking for the next 3 nights at this hotel. I am so glad that I did. From the moment I arrived, I was given courtesy and attention. The location is safe and quiet. Any question that I had was answered and I was told about places that might not be safe. So, I would have to say that the staff was the best. The next thing was that the bed was comfortable after sleeping on what seemed like boxes with sheets for the 2 weeks in Italy and other parts of Greece. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Finding the hotel initially was difficult.

    Superb

    Best thing about the hotel was the knowledge of the staff about the city... We heards a few things about Athens as a bit unsafe for the tourists... So we requested the receoptionalist about the various places to visit and which ones to avoid. They gave us a proper instructions as where to go at what time and what places are to be avoided totally. In the end, due to various circumstances we ended up at the unrecommended places and found that the things mentioned by them were absolutely right.

    Just a couple of comments: The address which we received in the mail was not recognized by taxi drivers. Maybe they can mention the name of the nearest square for easy identification. This is a minor one... the air conditioner did not had a control, so it was operating at the preset temperature.

    Very good

    The room was big and comfortable and although close enough to a big avenue with lots of traffic (especially during a subway strike), there wasn't much noise at night.

    The staff at the front desk barely smiled (only one person was nice, out of the 4 I saw at the front desk) and were rude in English. When I checked out, they tried to charge me again for my room (I had a prepaid reservation) and I had to get upset with the front desk staff so that they wouldn't double-charge me for my room!!!!! Although the facilities are okay and the location is great, I will never stay at this hotel again because of what happened at check out.

    Away from a busy road, warm rooms, big bathrooms.

    No change of the linens for three days. Very dirty floor of the bathroom. Not clean enough rabbish baskets.very poor breakfast area and buffet. Every morning the same things, not professional equipment for the food.

    Superb

    Friendly staff (explained us where to go, where not to go), safe neighborhood (well lit area and police presence due to American embassy nearby), close to metro and comfortable rooms. Breakfast options also quite varied.

    Difficult to keep the floor dry when taking a shower. Small elevator

    Good

    The best western plus is located very near to the Amrican Ambassy and about 7 minuets walk from the Migaro Underground. 3 Museums are only one stop away . Sintagma is two stops away. Room was large and comfortable but I did not love it as the design was all wrong.

    The hotel is just OK. Nothing to write home about. It is small (much smaller than you are led to think by the pictures of its outside). I think the design is all wrong. Actually there is no design. The hotel is a combination of colors that simply do not work. The room us painted light green, the bed cover is dark blue .the bathroom tends to pink. Nothing works!! Breakfast was OK . They should do much more. Eggs scrambeled were full of oil. The Jam is simple colored mess. They do not need to spend more money . For the same expences and some care Breakfast would look different. For the same price I could have chosen Better.

    Excellent staff, especially receptionist, so kind and helpful about all our questions. Excellent location, walking distance to Athens nightlife and most popular cafes and bars. So close to metro and bus station, very easily reachable from airport. Clean, comfortable and cosy room. Good breakfast. All my recommendations for this hotel.
