“Fantastic views”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The Divani Acropolis hotel is ideally situated within walking distance of the Acropolis museum and the Plaka shopping area. The breakfast buffet is amazing, with a wide variety that could easily sustain you until an early dinner. There's even a little bit of archaeological history on site and a cute little curio shop.
The rooms are a fair size, and we had a balcony with an amazing view of the Acropolis (even more amazing at night). The rooms could probably do with a touch of white linen to update it a bit - the current flowery décor is a bit outdated, but still in good condition. The shower in bath had a shower curtain.
The free Wi-Fi in the lobby (and in the rooms although not advertised) is a bonus for checking in with loved ones back home. The bar prices was a bit steep, but in line with 5* in a European city so not unexpected. And dinner at the rooftop restaurant was excellent, with good service and that amazing Acropolis view. Overall it was a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Ask for an Acropolis view room, and for a short stay it's worth the upgrade.

If you want a hotel that is in walking distance to all the "action" in Athens but still quiet and serene- this hotel is it. We loved everything about it, especially the rooftop terrace! This is one instance where the pictures on the website actually do the view justice.

The Divani Acropolis is a five-star hotel, and it really is quite lovely. Nice rooms, lobby, outdoor area, and a great gift shop which actually offers reasonable prices and friendly service, too. Good location near the Plaka district and the New Acropolis Museum. Lunch tip: the hotel has a delicious Greek salad - which costs 2 or 3 times what I paid for a Greek salad elsewhere in Athens! Instead… from the front entrance to the hotel, turn left, and find the small bakery about a block away. Buy a piece of cheese pie or spinach pie, and you will have an absolutely delicious lunch at a fraction of the price of that salad! :)

This was exactly the right place to be on our first night of an 11-day anniversary vacation! Our flight had arrived very late, and it was after 10pm when we arrived. But the staff immediately got things off the right start by welcoming us kerbside, from the cab, and then getting us pleasantly and efficiently checked in, then seeing us safely to our room and making sure we knew how to control the a/c and lights.

And that wasn't all! Our porter even told us that although we couldn't see the Acropolis from the hotel's rooftop that night (the rooftop restaurant was closed that night), we could glimpse it from the big window at the end of a corridor on the 7th floor. And we did!

Everything else about this hotel was outstanding: the rooftop restaurant with its direct view of the Acropolis lit up at night, its easy walking distance to the Parthenon, the Agora, the Plaka shopping district, and so much more. The rooms were sparkling clean, modern, and very well furnished; the staff were extremely friendly, efficient, and helpful.

Would we stay there again? In a heartbeat. I hope we get the chance to go to Athens again soon!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Acropolis!

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and had a splendid stay. The hotel has good facilities, nice and helpful staff and a perfect location in Athens. We would certainly recommend a visit to the hotel's secret roof top garden restaurant.

-The hotel is located in very nice and quiet neighborhood.
-The front desk staff were great, from recommending restaurants,clubs and local advice.

We arrived after an 8 - day cruise for an overnight stay prior to leaving for a land tour. They graciously accepted our bags of laundry, secured our luggage, and booked our dinner reservations!

A comfortable walk to the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, and many of the desired sites of Athens.

Our room was a family suite, however it was described, didn't really match. Still, it was comfotable, spacious, clean and we'll appointed. We couldn't believe that our laundry was done and waiting for us.

The highlight here was the rooftop terrace restaurant that looks up at the Parthenon...you have to keep pinching yourself!

The food was excellent, flavorful, attractive and our steaks were cooked perfectly. The menu offered enough variety to please everyone. The view is extraordinary! The prices and portions are well-matched. The service is very good, attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly.

Our only complaint was being unable to swim during the afternoon siesta.

Overall, a very pleasant stay!
