Firstly the location cannot be bettered, within 1 minutes walk from the hotel is the most wonderful view of the Parthenon, access to the Plaka, Acropolis museum and 'Hop on -hop off' bus stop on your doorstep.
The staff try very hard and are extreamly friendly and helpful, but this lack lustre hotel makes it hard form them to shine. If you are happy with a no frills 3* hotel then the location is worth putting up with tired rooms that are 'adequate'.
The breakfast is very good, but no evening meals are available in the hotel. There are plenty of excellent restaurants all around - avoid the one at the top of the road on the same side as the hotel however.
Go to Lycabutter Hill, via funicular railway, the view from there is well worth the trip, there is a very nice restaurant at the top, although expensive.
There were demonstrations going on at the time we went ( 15 -19 Feb 2012), but these are very localised at the Parliament Building, and directed at the Police and Government not Tourists. Some roads were closed which delayed our return to the airport, but just leave earlier for the time being. It did not badly disrupt our trip, and we managed to see the changing of the Guard which is both traditional and hilarious!
