I love this hotel. Have stayed there three times. They have upgraded all the rooms with new A/C units. The rooftop terrace is great for breakfast and evening visits. The location is perfect for walking to many sights and public transportation. All the staff are very efficient, friendly and helpful.

I booked this based off Tripadvisor reviews and they were accurate! For a 2-star hotel, I give it 5 stars. Location location location!!! Right in/near Plaka... within walking distance from the Metra stations, both Syntagma and Monastiaiki Squares, and very close to Acropolis and Museums. Not only that... but the men at the front door are SO nice! Very helpful...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
