“Dusty 5-Star Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2011

The hotel is situated on a nice little hill and with a splendid view on the Acropolis! The room is generally quite nice and well equipped, but when the luggage was placed there was almost no space to move to the balcony/table. The hotel has a pool but it was closed and a big spa area, but I could not get an appointment since only one person was working there.
In general, the hotel would need a renovation. At first look it looks very nice but at a second look one finds also a lot of dust and things that do not work. Also the internet on the room which is heavily charged (6 EUR per hour) could not be started. Only in the lobby the WLAN is free of charge. To summarize, I was very disappointed compared to the pictures shown on the internet.

Lovely, cosy hotel situated in a quiet neighborhood, near the city centre. We were very happy with our choice.
The rooms are fantastic, breakfast was served in the roof garden-beautiful view of the city. We loved the restaurant on the ground floor. Also the service was nice and friendly. Can't fault it at all.

The hotel looks/feels dated and overall our stay was fine. You can't beat the view of the Acropolis from the room, but other than that, there was nothing special.

We choose to return to this hotel after being in Skopelos and Skiathos for 10 days. We had stayed at the St George 6 years prior and loved it then but love it more now. The taxis were on strike so the the hotel arranged a car and driver to pick us up and return us to the airport. The rooms are nice if not a tad small. But comfortable and had a great view and balcony facing the city. The pool on the roof and bar are better then before. Great bartender up there. We had room service and breakfast and both were very good. We asked for ice x3 and it was delivered quickly and with a smile. Can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: High up facing the city

The location is in one of Athens's finest neighborhoods with great restaurants and cafes nearby. The hotel has a wonderful friendly staff and a great bar and restaurant on the penthouse with superb views of the city. The rooms are very clean with comfortable beds.

Room Tip: virtually any street side room. higher floors have fantastic view of Athens and the Acropolis

We stayed here for a few days in late August and were very disappointed.

The hotel is not worthy of 5 stars. It is over-priced, the staff are off hand and one occasion rude, and you have to pay an extortionate amount for internet access.

I really could not recommend this hotel I'm sure that there are far better in Athens that are cheaper.
