The Hilton Athens is an excellent option in Athens, as long as you take the Executive Lounge option. As a gold member, we were upgraded for free to the Executive Lounge level (lounge is on Floor 11). I understand this hotel charges around $30 per day per room for non-HH members and couples should give this consideration. The lounge has many options for breakfast (few hot dishes, but many cold options) and a spread during the afternoon and evening as well as free-flowing alcoholic beverages. The view of the Acropolis is beautiful during any time of day.

The rooms are rather modern, with wood floors and IKEA type furniture. However, the one real problem I had was the glass wall in the bathroom! There is no privacy afforded in that room and it's really quite funny that a hotel would design this sort of bathroom.

This hotel is about 5 minute walk from the metro station and near a very pretty park. It was quite convenient as well to the tourist bus. We only walked by the restaurants in the back of the hotel, but did not eat at any of them. They would be a better option than dining at the hotel's very expensive restaurants.

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of days earlier this month, and although the facilities were lovely, we did feel that a lot of the "extras" were very expensive. As another reviewer has already noted, prices of drinks both at the bar and in the mini-bar in the room are astronomical. Whist I appreciate this is a luxury hotel, and I've seen from the comments by the hotel that they feel their pricing is in line with the local market/competition, I think it is important for guests to know what they are getting. Even the internet access costs money - but other hotels I've stayed in (of all grades) generally now include that for free!

The location is great, the rooms were beautiful and the breakfast was plentiful. Just watch out for your bill at the end!

The hotel overall is nice. I let them know that it was for my honeymoon and they wonderfully obliged by giving me a room facing the acropolis and also sent wine/fruit which was really nice. Overall the rooms/patio was nice and the facilities seemed good although I wasn’t in the hotel very long. It definitely was a nice place to stay and the location was pretty good. We were only a short walk to the train and short train ride to plaka/syntagma square. We also enjoyed our lunch at this small fast food place around the corner. Overall, it was very good and I would certainly recommend.

This is a decent city centre hotel but beware, the Hilton Athens make huge additional charges for everything a guest does other than sit in their room. Expect to pay 9 euros for a beer from the mini bar, 14 euros for a G&T and (wait for it) 10 euros for a box of Pringles! In addition to these high costs the Hilton Athens also looks to charge all guests 15 euros to take a dip in their indoor pool, even when the outside pool is closed. In terms of additional charges, this is one of the most expensive hotels you can stay in. It makes some of the worlds best luxury hotels look positively good value in comparison. Unfortunately, top end luxury the Hilton Athens ain't, so the prices aren't justified.

If you're on an expenses paid business trip fine, but if you are traveling at leisure I'd recommend to take your own refreshments to the room and drink/eat outside the hotel :)

This is a large modern hotel. The rooms are large, well decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom was particularly nice. We found the staff to very accomodating and provide us with exceptional service. Our flight to Santorini was cancelled due to a general strike and the staff went out of their way to help us get reservations on a ferry.

The hotel is in a nice neighborhood and is about a kilometer from the center of town. I like to walk and it was a lovely walk to town center, past parks, nice homes, and the Parliament building. My wife doesn't like walking as much, so we also took the subway, which is a bout a block away. The subway is very nice and efficient and doesn't cost very much.

I had a free breakfast with the room and the breakfast was a large buffet and was excellent. I didn't pay to eat at any of the restaurants here, so I can't comment on them.

I also stayed at the Athens Gate which is located closer to the center of town. Although I liked the Athens Gate, my wife and I preferred the Hilton. Overall I thought it was an excellent hotel and would definitely stay here again.
