We booked this hotel through Oceania Cruise for one night before the cruise. Not that we got a discount price but seemed like all the cruise passengers were on the third floor. Our room was very small. I cannot imagine a princess standing there with her gown. She'd have to stand on the bed in order to accommodate a gown with any volume. The bathroom was spacious though. Do try to point the shower head in the right direction before you turn on water.
While the food at the rooftop restaurant was un memorable, the view of Acropolis was spectacular. The container in which the yogurt came in was very useful too. With the view and OK food the price was worth it.
As pointed out by other reviews, the location can't be beat. And if you are used to step-by-step Google map directions, you better bring them. Hotel staff's direction can be quite vague.
