“A short stay in Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

I have never been to Athens before so I relied on my travel agent"s advice. She chose this because of its close proximity to the Acropolis and it is great for that as well as being close to the metro station and the Acropolis museum. The room was spacious and luxurious with quality fittings and linen and the hotel staff all fluent in English and very helpful. The roof top restaurant was great with the view of the sunset over the Acropolis food quality superb and the service almost too fast. The bar food was also good but some of the drinks seemed expensive but I guess it was peak tourist season. The pool opening hours were disappointing with the management claiming that Greek law prevents noise during siesta time so you couldn't swim between 2.30 and 5.30 which is the very time in the heat of the day when you want to!For the price overall this was an excellent hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Not all room a ahve a view of the Acropolis so if you want that you need to ask

First of all the location is excellent. Most of the touristy places are within walking distance. Reaching it by metro from the airport is not difficult.(Ryder -Beware of pick pockets) The hotel itself is typically touristy where the staff is friendly but the smiles are plastic and rehearsed. However the rooms are reasonably big and comfortable as is the bathroom. Housekeeping is good. But it should be classified as a four star rather than five. Why they don't keep a tea /coffee maker in the room is a mystery

A 5 star hotel without fault and much to appreciate, as far as my wife and after a two day visit (too short!) return visit to Athens are concerned. This hotel has all that the even most discerning traveller would want.
Located in walking distance of the Acropolis, the Acropolis museum - an equal 'must do visit', the Plaka and Manasteraki shopping and eating places but with its own gourmet roof top restaurant looking up to the monument after which the hotel is named.
Spacious, even when crowded in high season, and various seminar rooms in full use, comfortable, clean, efficient, excellent staff - couldn't have wished for better.

We ended our trip to Greece this year with 2 nights at the Divani Acropolis. We had a wonderful stay. The room faced a quiet residential street and we spent some lovely time on the balcony. We had a side view of the Acropolis. The room was a good size, with minifridge and coffee maker. The bed was comfy. The shower was wonderful, especially after 2 weeks on the islands. Service was excellent. I will return.

I ended up at the Divani Acropolis Palace Hotel rather unexpectedly when my husband had to be taken from the cruise we were on to the Metropolitan Hospital in Greece. I can not say enough about the entire staff at this hotel. The manager Mr. Themes & Mr.Loukas (sorry if spelled wrong!) could not do enough for me. They were sympathetic to my situation and were more than helpful in every request from directions to supplying an adapter plug for my laptop. Each day someone from the desk would ask how my husband was doing in the hospital. Each and every person on staff that I encountered was friendly and caring. The room I had was lovely, immaculate, safe and comfortable-Thanks Sofia!!. The hotel is ideally suited for touring the Acropolis and the Plaka. Additionally, the rooftop restaurant was outstanding as was the service and the view of the Acropolis. Eventually, after 5 days my husband was released from the hospital and every person greeted him as if he were family. My heartfelt thanks to everyone there for making a very difficult time a lot easier. I hope to return in the future under happier circumstances. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Athens.
