Lonely Planet review
Modern but simple, A for Athens makes a good, central base right above Monastiraki's central square. The rooftop cafe-bar is grand, with sweeping 360-degree views that take in the Acropolis (as do some of the rooms).
Our independent authors have visited A for Athens and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Athens.
