The Titania is well located being about a half mile from Syntagma Square with plenty of shops and a restaurants and bars to choose from. The riots of the last couple of years have left their mark on the area with graffiti everywhere (in fact graffiti in Greece seems to be endemic).
The lobby of the hotel is pretty impressive and very welcoming with friendly and efficient staff on the reception desk.
I stayed for two separate nights and therefore in different rooms. The first, a single room on the 10th floor, looked out onto a into an area with a small courtyard at the bottom. The lack of working air conditioning meant having the window open and the proximity of other rooms with windows opening on to what was in effect an echo chamber was not conducive to a restful night's sleep with the sound of a resident's TV up too loud.
The second room was a double but had what would have been a sitting room attached albeit with a few sticks of unmatched furniture. A bit bizarre really. It did have a good size bathroom attached and a balcony which was a nice touch.
I stayed here as part of a tour and don't know the room price but a comprehensive, varied and well cooked breakfast was included.
The much commented on roof terrace is well worth visiting and provide spectacular views of Athens.
Once out of the lobby it is possible to see that the hotel is tired. Grubby in places low ceilings, battered, paint chipped doors and the sense that this is a hotel that needs a sprucing up is inescapable.
For all the negatives the location is good and the staff are friendly and the hotel was busy even in early November so they must be doing something right.
