I don't write many bad reviews as I usually check tripadvisor before I book a stay and end up satisfied. I gave it 2 stars because I really felt this is what is deserves. Stood here with my girlfriend in January. On the fifth floor for 4 nights. I have been to Athens multiple times as my girlfriend has family there. She is greek and speaks fluent.
Location is great for walking around the acropolis
Breakfast is included and above average
Employees were all very nice
Noisy! The maids start cleaning way too early and you can hear everything because the walls are thin. People in the hallways and the room next to us. Also they had someone cleaning the stairways 7:30am!
Wi-Fi. Pathetic. It's 2014 time to spend money and get hi-speed wi-fi in the rooms. The wi-fi that they have is very slow and not up to par with most hotels. Not good if you have business to tend to while away.
Air conditioning in our room was also very poor. Our room was very moldy and musty and I am not sure why. I don't know if every room has this problem but ours did. In the middle of the night we would wake up to a very warm room and the air conditioning did not seem to work.
Atmosphere- Very touristy. Everyone seemed to speak English first. Not the place if you want to dive into the culture. If you want to be a typical tourist than you may like it.
Might just be a bad experience but I will not stay here again.
I have had much better stays at King George and Aeros
