I read with amusement all the terrible things that everyone has written about the poor old Fivos.
Frankly my response is - what on earth do you expect for less than £20 per night? I am always amazed that some people expect accommodation like the Ritz at such bargain basement prices. What would you expect to get in any other capital city for that sort of price?
No - you wouldn't want to spend more than a night or two there, but the location is excellent and its somewhere to get your head down (eventually) and get a cheap breakfast in the morning. Once again - are some people expecting eggs benedict followed by smoked kippers and freshly squeezed orange for breakfast at that sort of price?
Don't expect the earth for your money and you won't be so disappointed. You can pay a lot more than this in Athens (and many other cities) and not get anything drastically better.More
