this is by no means a 5-star hotel. it is simply too old. they should either do a serious renovation or reduce the rating.
the staff is fine, they are helpful and attentive, but the experience in the rooms is just not up to 5-star standard.
you should avoid the low-priced executive rooms at any cost, we were lucky to get an upgrade to a deluxe room, which was fine, but also not 5-star.
location is great, the bed was comfortable. the bathroom has a bathtub with an annoying curtain to it, that really gets on your nerves while taking a shower. at night the hotel is noisy, as you hear a lot through these old walls.
the breakfast is a bit poor, given the amazing standard of food in greece. but the view from the restaurant is beautiful.
