0.5km from Domino's Pizza Athens KypseliAs other reviews have noted, this is very much a no-frills budget hotel (it does not pretend to be otherwise). There are no lifts, which might be a problem for those with mobility issues - I don't know how many floors there are as we were on the first floor. The rooms are pretty Spartan (sorry...), but don't let that put you off as there are a huge number of pluses to this hotel. The staff are really friendly and helpful, with excellent English. The air conditioning works really well and, as it was 35 degrees, this was most welcome! I had read reviews of other hotels more centrally-located saying that noise was a big problem. In contrast, Brazil Hotel was almost silent, which was a huge positive for me as a lighter sleeper (the beds are on the firmer side, which is how I prefer them - I found them very comfy). Our room was spotlessly clean and it looked just like the photos on the website we booked through. The shower has very good water pressure and easily adjustable temperature that you can set to your liking. There are some complimentary toiletries and an older-looking hairdryer. The TV was simple to use, with a decent number of English-speaking/subtitled channels, which I appreciated as someone who does not speak Greek. To address some of the comments about the neighbourhood, my (male) partner and I found it to be fine, even in the evening, with a fair number of women and children out in addition to the men milling around the square. Pickpocketing is, unfortunately, a problem in Athens as a whole; simply exercise the same caution near the hotel as you would elsewhere and you will be fine. There are some decent restaurants nearby and these are much cheaper than the ones located in central Athens, though there is less choice. Opposite the hotel there is a handy shop called Jony's Minimart that sells drinks and snacks. I don't know if we were served by Jony himself, but we went in pretty much every evening and the man behind the counter was absolutely lovely - he waved to us each time we left the hotel! Do consider giving your custom to this shop if you stay at Brazil. The outstanding National Archaeological Museum, which houses the golden mask of Agamemnon and the Antikythera Mechanism, is a ten minute walk from the hotel. It is about five minutes walk to the nearest metro station (Victoria) and from there maybe about 20-30 minutes into central Athens, so it is very easy to get to the main attractions. In addition to the fact that the hotel looked clean and close to good transport links, the final factor that led us to choose Brazil was the price. We paid about £35 per night, which is obscenely cheap for a capital city. Overall, this hotel probably has the best quality to price ratio of anywhere I have ever stayed. So, then, the big question: would I stay here again? Absolutely, without question.
