If you are going to Athens, this is the hotel to stay at!
The service, the amenities, the location can't be beat. I was fortunate to have a room on the 6th floor in which you have access to your own personal butler (they were so helpful) to assist you with all of your needs - simply amazing!
The rooms are pure luxury, the spa was fantastic (request to have a massage by Vaso), the roof top pool is a wonderful break from the heat. I also recommend dinner/drinks at their outdoor restaurant with the spectacular view of the Acropolis in the background.
One last note, I had left my new, expensive sunglasses in the room when I departed. I took a chance and emailed the hotel to see if they could check for them. They found them and told me they would send them to me immediately - now that's service!!
I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return.
