Fodor's Review

Stay here, and you may develop the impression that Athens is all fun and not a car-packed, frantic metropolis—simply put, there's no better spot to stay, location-wise, on Athens's most beautiful pedestrian walkway. Guest rooms feature brightly colored curtains and bedspreads with some basic amenities. By night, Thissio and Plaka cafés and restaurants are within walking distance, so you'll want to join all the happy Athenians strolling up and down cobblestoned Apostolou Pavlou under a floodlit Acropolis. This is a basic hotel but an ideal location for exploring the heart of Athens.

The best for visiting Athen's ruins....

This is not a luxury hotel but a luxurious pied d'archaeologie. The rooms, though small, are clean and chic with marvelous views of the acropolis. The food is delightful with fresh squeezed orange juice, espresso, and baklava available for breakfast. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The area has great restaurants and a carnival street atmosphere without the creepiness. Located on the Archaeological Walking Trail but with taxi drop and pickup,

the Phidias is perfect for those couple of days spent visiting the acropolis, forum, and local tourist areas. Cheap taxi service also allows you to travel throughout Athens from this base camp. It is absolutely perfect for the serious and the youthful tourist of all ages.
