Great location, inspiring Acropolis view from rooftop café, and perfectly decent, but not enchanting, rooms. Balcony rooms on the fifth and sixth floors have fine views over the Plaka, while some have Acropolis views. Lots of Greeks stay here, and so do some tour groups, but it also receives a share of independent foreign travellers like you. One possible drawback: This is not a warm-and-fuzzy hotel. I have friends who stayed here twice a summer for 15 years and were never greeted as return guests. But the price is good, and the quality justifies the impersonal disposition.
