The location is fab, just down the street from Syntagma square.
Not a bad place if you're in the black building (same one as the reception) or the white building (across the road). I was in the white building, my colleague was in the black building. The black building room was spacious and had a great balcony, with no complaints. The white place, on the other hand was well below par - the room couldn't get dark at night due to the loose fit of the door and the light coming in from the corridor; there was lots of elegant but impractical furniture - no desk wide enough to put a laptop on or a chair suitable for hanging a suit jacket over; and a cleanser smell which pervaded the whole white building. It was also one of those hotel rooms with too much inappropriate technology - the shower was too complex; i tried to phone reception to ask how to turn the water on but couldn't figure out how to dial (there were no directions on how to phone reception) and I didn't fancy crossing the road in my pyjamas to ask. I had a good laugh with another colleague of mine who was also in the white building as he found himself in an identical situation!
The breakfast was OK (in the black building on the top floor) but it was a shame that in such a wonderful climate they couldn't find some outdoor space for it - after the first day I had my breakfast in a cafe around the corner.
