Very convenient to get anywhere, restaurants and bakeries within footsteps. Easy to take bus, taxi, metro, or hop on hop off.
only stayed a night, convenient location to the airport just crossing a street. good room, nice shower and clean.
Beautiful rooftop, amazing view of acropolis, staff was all extremely pleasant and helpful and the location is perfect!
The Niche hotel is a boutique hotel Dianne’s to accommodate tourists. It is in the heart of the Acropolis district of Athens, walking distance from Plaka and the shopping areas. We enjoyed our stay in the Niche hotel especially in dealing with the staff, all professional, courteous & super friendly. ...
Fantastic location. Easy access to all the tourist stuff - especially the Acropolis. And very nice staff too:)
Excellent location , amazing breakfast with actual honeycomb and first-rate views of the acropolis from breakfast outside on the terrace/balcony. They Recommended a private guide to tour the Acropolis and she was extraordinarily good. I would return again.
Location near the airport was good and we only stayed one night. I wouldn't want to have an extended stay there as it was too far from the city center and attractions but it worked as a good place for our short layover before flying back to the U.S.
