This hotel was great! We checked in quickly, were greeted by the lovely smile of Marina from guest services. She gave us her card (which came in handy for cab drivers that didn't understand English too well), walked us to our room and made sure we had everything we needed before she left. The rooms are comfortable. Only complaint is that the bed is harder than we like. The staff was very helpful to bring up a few toppers for us to use under the sheets to make it more comfortable. High praise for the whole staff, but the Guest Relations staff, especially Marina and Aristea are great! They are knowledgeable and friendly, quick to help, they even checked us in for our return flight while we went for a walk.
The hotel is at the top of a hill. This makes for an amazing view of the city with breakfast or drinks, but if you aren't up to walking then you will be paying for a lot of cab rides. It is walking distance to everything, Plakka, the Acropolis, the stadium, the park, tons of restaurants and little eateries. There is a pharmacy and a little convenience store a block or two down the steps.
We had the breakfast buffet included in our package and it was very nice. The hotel is a little dated, and the television selection is limited to news, but are you really in Greece to stay in your room?
We didn't find it much different than some other hotels in Europe. The website was very clear about the rooms and which ones face the city. We didn't feel the need to spend more money for a room with a view and we were happy with our decision. The pool area is a little small. Only a couple of chairs around the pool (which is not heated by the way so a little chilly in June) which fill up quickly. The umbrellas are down a level and only a few of those to be had. The view is amazing though!
All in all it was a great stay and we will be back the next time we are in Greece!
