“Best hotel experience ever!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

I have traveled abroad extensively and stayed in many fine hotels for over 40 years and generally tend to avoid American properties in order to have a more "real" in country experience. The Hilton Athens just proved me wrong. My wonderful new husband booked a junior suite with a view of the Acropolis for our honeymoon arrival in Greece and it was stellar. If there is a more beautiful view of Athens and the Acropolis, I can't imagine what it might be. Just pay the upgrade; you will not be disappointed. Smart contemporary decor, excellent location for metro or walking to the Plaka, the port, and all ruins. The staff is perhaps the best, most generous and cohesive group I have ever experienced anywhere. Executive floor food selection is incredible for breakfast. Truly, it just doesn't get better than this.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed at the Hilton and cant really complain. You get the usual Hilton prices (small Evian bottle €7) but also the usual Hilton standard. The staff were all friendly and happy to help.

The hotel isnt centrally located but is a 5 min taxi ride (again as ever, Hilton have their own trusted taxi drivers so you dont have to worry about getting ripped off). There are some nice restaurants located outside the hotel and a starbucks just around the corner.

The breakfast was nice and had a wide selection although the staff seemed stretched given there was a conference on.

The outdoor swimming pool wasnt opened when I visited, so I cant really comment
about that.

The room I stayed in had a fantastic view with the only downside being the noise from the building works opposite.

Happily book in again.

Excellent in facilities but very disappointing experience with internet access. I purchased the internet access for 3 days but was shocked to learn that the paid net is only accessible in the room. If I want to use the internet in the lobby I have to purchase the plan separately. Even after spending a bomb for the internet one cannot access the net in all the corners of the hotel. The best part of the hotel was breakfast. The spread of breakfast was the best I have ever seen. There were a lot of choices for both vege and non-vegetarians. The bar and the resturant at the rooftop is awesome more because of its view in the night.

The Athens Hilton has one of the best locations for a luxury hotel in Athens, Greece. The Athens Hilton has a beautiful view of the Acropolis from the balcony rooms. You can walk to Kolonaki, one of the high-end shopping districts of Athens. Spring for the executive lounge access, as this provides a nice breakfast and a afternoon tea pick me up.

A very central Hotel with a breathtaking view of the Acropolis. The room is spacious, with a balcony which overlooks the hotel's large swimming pool. Room always cleaned to the highest standards. Breakfast offered a very big selection of food, which looked more like a dinner buffet. Service is very good in every area of the hotel, being the reception, restaurant or bar. Restaurants open till very late thus very convenient. Only negative is the lack of free wi-fi in the room...I expect better from Hilton.

Room Tip: Rooms with the view of the Acropolis of course

Good location. Run-down rooms but clean. Poor wifi. Good restaurants especially MILOS. Nice bar. No value for money for executive rooms or suites. Parking and room-wifi are extra for hotel guests which should not be so. Generally average experience. Will probably stay again due to location, and due to average standard of all other Athens Hotels.

I stayed here during a recent business trip and while the hotel room is comfortable and the breakfast very nice (as mentioned previously) I spent a good deal of energy frustrated by the price of internet (20EUR) and the quality of the connection. They don't even offer free wifi in the lobby. You can only get free wifi in the restaurants. I stayed at a smaller hotel in town earlier on my trip which was half the price and much better service. It also had a rooftop bar with an excellent view. I don't see the point of paying all this money to be frustrated by the service and internet when you are trying to work. I wouldn't return here next time I am in Athens.
