I chose this hotel for a one night stay primarily because of its location, which was in the right district of Athens for business and close to the airport bus stop. It was clean and the breakfast had a good selection of buffet items - though a bit more fresh fruit would have been appreciated.
The minibar in the room was missing a lot of items and contained half drunk miniatures - but when reporting this to the management (to make sure I wasn't charged), they simply said that most of the rooms had similar issues!
The room safe didn't work and as the maintenance man wasn't around after 5.30pm, I had to leave my valuables in the reception safe instead. This was inconvenient, as it was about the only facility I wanted When returning from my evening out, I was told the room safe had been fixed, but this was too late for my benefit.
The following day I asked for a late check out, as I was feeling poorly and my flight wasn't until 8pm. I offered to pay, but was told the hotel was fully booked. Eventually, they grudgingly extended the check out time to 1.30pm.
There was nowhere nice to while away my time and I ended up visiting a friend who was staying at the President hotel just down the road - this had a lovely airy rooftop bar and I was gutted I'd not chosen to stay there instead. The price was about the same, but the ambience was much nicer.
I was a single traveller - wondered if the room and service would have been better if I'd been part of a couple.
