Hotel is located in the center of city - very convenient place. Rooms in the hotel is very small. No teapot or any source of drinking water at all. There are only sitting bathroom not convenient to even take a shower. Hotel provides basic breakfast. Needs renovation.

Great location for touring Athens during the day, and in a midst of a young and hip bar scene to go out at night. The rooms and the other facilities are reasonable. Breakfast is very good, and the staff is very friendly.

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.
