Customer Comments:-

"The location was just a 10 minute walk from the train station which takes you right to the main sites. And it was walking distance to the Archaeological Museum as well as restaurants, grocery stores and good bakeries! The free internet was a definite plus as was the lift. The staff was really helpful and friendly. The bus to Corfu was also very convenient. Overall, a pretty good place to stay in Athens."
