This hotel was extremely disappointing. The staff were cold and unfriendly and were irritated when we asked for a spare toothbrush. We also had some questionable service trying to get a cab. The staff insisted on calling one of their cabbie friends, who after 20 minutes called and said he would be running even later. All this of course, while we watched a dozen empty cabs go by. It all seemed pretty sketchy. The hotel advertises a beautiful lit up view of the acropolis which is completely false. Worst thing of all is that the rooms were so incredibly cluttered with impractical furniture, it was difficult to maneuver around it. We had little space to put our things and kept bumping into things. You can't see it at all from any angle or any room. This hotel failed to deliver in every way.
