I hate to disagree with Mr DavidAram, but the Hotel Akraion I stayed in bore no resemblance to the one described in his review. One can only assume he'd got the name wrong or he was a man with a grudge!! I was in Athens, supporting a mate who's daughter had swine flu and I can only say that the staff were kind, helpful and courteous. The rooms were clean, quiet and beautifully designed and there is a fantastic library of books and games. Many of the rooms have balconies overlooking Athens and the contemporary Terrace Bar has the best view of all... the perfect spot for an early breakfast or a late night Metaxa. Nothing was too much trouble for Eleni the hotel's owner, whose family have run the hotel for years.
The only difficult thing I found about the hotel... was leaving it!
Can't wait to go back!
