First of all, the location is awful. The Metaxhourghio neighborhood in which the hotel is located, is populated by immigrants, junkies and drunks amongst the apparently homeless Athenians. The overall condition of the neighborhood is even more deteriorated than rest of the Athens (excluding the few richer or tourist-oriented neighborhoods).
While walking around there, you can witness the glorious sight of random needle-in-arm junkie trying to find the last uninjected spot on their bodies. Whilst feeling the crunch of a crushing used needles under your soles.
The room we reserved from King Jason was nothing like we saw in pictures, and the various differences made us think that the pictures were not taken in the same hotel at all. Although it was pretty clean and bug free. Beds were also like stone slabs. Also the noise from outside made sleeping impossible.
Few pointers that were not like advertised:
- there was no working wireless internet connection anywhere
- the view to Acropolis was a joke (one could spot a glimpse of the hill from the balcony, behind other buildings)
- breakfast was tasteless or bad tasting (excluding olives and feta...)
-although it was off-season, there hotels cafeteria/bar was never open
- it didnt have the advertised "roof top restaurant"
If youre planning to visit Athens, avoid this neighborhood like plague.
