Our family of 4 traveled to Athens for a week stay. We spent the first 3 days exploring Athens. We then rented a car to explore Sounio, Delphi and the Peloponnese peninsula. It was one of the best vacations we've ever taken. Amazing mix of history, culture, food, and landscapes.
Athens Lotus was a great base from which we could easily hop on metro to go anywhere in city. We are especially thankful to George and Antonis at the front desk who gave us great suggestions and helped us make reservations for dinner and other activities. Elizabeth at morning breakfast was also very cheerful and helpful.
Free parking for our rental car was convenient and it was actually really pretty easy to get from hotel on to the highway to Delphi and Peloponnese peninsula.
The hotel has a great location. It is close to the metro, we walked to some great restaurants, and it is fairly quiet at night. The lighting was horrible. We all like to read before sleeping. If you do bring your headlamps. The breakfast is pretty bad if you like coffee. The coffee is not drinkable. It was some kind of instant from a machine.

Wifi internet in the room was horrible !!!! The only good spot for a good signal was on the roof top. Great view of the Acropolis by the way. They need to fix that problem! I booked a renovated room. Except the bathroom. Old style. Very disappointed. It shouldn't be post pictures on the site showing an updated bathroom.

the staff will respond to the customers. at first, i was put into a room with no hot water, fridge not working, and lots of insets. After one night, they helped me change room. Although the fridge is not working still, there are much less insects.
The wifi changes password every 3 hours.
The staff is very nice.
If you intend to go around Athens and just need a clean place to rest, this is the best hotel to do so. The staff was very friendly. It is not as new as other hotels that we've too but the place has character and is very charming. We got a connecting room, so my husband and I had our privacy and each room has its own bathroom. We drove around downtown in a taxi and this area was actually one of the nicest.
A neighborhood in Athens, Metaxourgio is a place full of transition. Once home to laborers, the neighborhood is now multicultural and undergoing mass urban-gentrification. It is close to Karaiskaki Square and has its own metro stop, Metaxourgio, that can whisk visitors to central Athens.
