We and our granddaughter (11) enjoyed our five nights in a triple at the Divani Acropolis, very well located for tourists, on a quiet street and within walking distance of the metro, the Acropolis and all the major classical sites.
The Divani’s main market is tour groups. Décor and furnishing were a little tired. There are spacious public areas and a small but adequate pool which was surprisingly uncrowded. Our room was small for three but adequately furnished and the Acropolis was visible from its balcony.
Breakfast was a large buffet in the basement restaurant, of rather ‘average’ quality. We did not use that restaurant otherwise but had one excellent if expensive dinner in the rooftop restaurant with its magical view. We also took lunch several times at the pool – good quality and service but also expensive by local standards.
There is wired internet access in the bedrooms, WiFi at ground level and one public computer. The charge is an irritating €5 per day per device (!).
The staff were pleasant and helpful and the general atmosphere welcoming and efficient.
The Divani is not the five star hotel it claims to be - and is more a base than a destination - but it’s a straightforward four star and we thought the €190 b and b rate good value for what we got. Recommended to tourists.
