It claims to be a 5-star hotel. The rooms do not even have a properly working air conditioning system. We're staying here right now in the month of March, where it gets fairly warm and the only way for ventilation is to open the windows.
Moreover, the internet is so pathetic, specially after 6pm that they should be obliged to write " extremely low speed internet", if any. The rooms aren't pretty and are small. There are no facilities in the room such as iron board, microwave, etc. I am here to attend a conference, and was deeply disappointed during my first visit to the great city of Athens.
The pictures (with view from the windows) are a myth for most rooms at least.
