I come here every year and stay in a suite with the butler service. Been coming since 2006.
Recently visited twice on trip in June/July 2014. Great service, incredible/unique architecture, great rooms. Lot of marble. Gotta love marble.
I have stayed in many hotels around the world of the same class. This hotel comes first. Rooftop breakfast and afternoon drinks is what makes this hotel my favourite. The view of Athens and the food available is outstanding.
It makes me annoyed to see people complain on here and give this hotel low ratings over very stupid things. The only reason these people will give low ratings is because they were most likely disrespectful towards the staff and impatient during very busy times. I saw a lot of disrespectful tourists this year and it was pathetic and disturbing, from around the world. Yes, there may be a breakdown in service, but give them a chance first, they're only human.
There was this couple with a child in the elevator and the child dropped all this food on the floor, leaving a huge mess all over the marble floor. Of course, they left it there for the hotel to pick up like nothing had happened. No respect.
My butler this year was great, George (I think his name was). He was helpful in arranging transport to the airport and he also went to a store to buy something for me around the corner as I was not going to arrive from the airport in time to get it.
Another great stay. Always enjoy the richness and class of this hotel.
