“Rip off for communication services”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

As though the hotel is ok and has good view to the Acropolis, a nice roof bar and a large pool for a City hotel in walkings distance to the Syntagma place (20 min) it has a really expensiv disadvantage for business travellers. The charge for WIFI in the room is 20 Euros per day no matter how many days you stay and the additions to telefon landlines are ridicoulos high.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back side are more quite but have no good view. Rooms on te front side around the...

Although located at a busy intersection, the rooms are sound proofed to block most of the traffic noise. Convenience in general is a major amenity of this hotel. Do check out the nearby Oroscopo Taverna for lunch or dinner!

We had a great room with a balcony facing the Acropolis. From our 8th floor room we could even see Piraeus & mountains disappearing into the haze. The staff was efficient & very accommodating. We were on a reward stay so I can't really complain. As mentioned, Internet was a crazy €20 per day & my status was not high enough for free service. Likewise the breakfast buffet is €35 (€20 if you pre-book at check-in). Luckily there are several inexpensive cafés & a Starbucks around the corner to fill the gap. The Evangelismos subway stop is a minute away across the very busy road to easily connect with anywhere in Athens. As a bonus, the wonderful Milos Restaurant is attached to the hotel.

Room Tip: Up high with Acropolis view

I might say that this hotel was extremely excellent. We were upgraded to the Executive Suite (thanks to my brother in law whose a member of the hilton's). Foods are 24/7 as in you can eat and drink as much as you can. Free wifi. Rooms are big, clean and very quiet. Nice view of the Athens. They have indoor pools if you don't want to be sun burned. Service was good.

Was there on business, so the check-in was pre-organised. The room was spacious and clean. No free WiFi in rooms. A Bottle of water costs 7.50 Euros!! Breakfast was very good, wide variety, service was efficient. Roof top bar has excellent views, service too was good. I asked for a late check-out and although I was given one, the reception staff were not too happy to oblige! Did not have lunch or dinner at the hotel, so cannot comment. Location is good, very central. Walking distance to many areas. Metro is not far and in 2-stops you are neat the Acropolis.
Overall good stay.
