Price and location are the strong points of this small hotel off Syntagma Square on a short pedestrianized street just off Voukourestiou. Rooms are very small, furnishings include mostly blonde wood, pale leatherette chairs, and the inadequate reading lamps that are all-too-common in Greek hotels. Both Voukourestiou and Valeoritiou are chockablock with boutiques, cafes, and what many (count me in) think is Athens' best pastry shop: Karavan. Although the Athens Lycabettus gets good marks for its service, the experience can be spotty. Discerning French friends of mine found the service "terrible" and the bathroom "incroyable," with hot water only intermittent. Still, rates are worth the gamble. Outside of peak season, actual prices can be often a good deal lower than official prices, so ask for the best one available.
