My husband, 12 year old son and I just returned from a trip to Greece, which we took because our son is studying ancient Greece (in California). This hotel was fabulous! We could see the Acropolis by leaning out our balcony, our direct view was of an old and beautiful church and a park. We loved the modern bathroom and unusual modern touches. The breakfast was amazing, with fresh squeezed orange juice (my son had several glasses), pastries, homemade omelets to order, and delicious yogurts, fruits, etc. We walked to the Plaka and the Acropolis and ancient marketplace very easily. My son loved that there was a McDonald's between the Syntagma Metro (a few blocks away) and the hotel. This metro stop is a straight shot from the airport, which was very handy. The staff was incredibly helpful with renting a car and finding our way around, there was a nice computer/business room in the basement and also a fitness center. This is one of our favorite hotels anywhere!!
