“Five stars prices”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

Hotel is fine and the room we had was large and very confortable. The only thing with this hotel is the prices, everything is expensive, from the small bottle of water in the mini bar (4euro, but .50 at the small kiosque next door) to any drink or other product. The personnel at the reception is correct but cold and sometime impatient. We would not recommend this hotel.

The overall experience at the Divani was very good. The front desk team was particularly friendly and helpful and their recommendations were good. The rooftop pool is a very nice escape from the bustle of Athens but with an excellent view.

The hotel itself is a bit dated but well maintained.

The location is a bit off but there is a shuttle service a few times per day plus a taxi is cheap.

Charging for wifi access clearly pulls down the overall five star experience - eur 15/day...

Room Tip: See if you can get a room on seventh floor

Luxury hotel, clean (twice per day clean service), spaceful rooms with almost everything inside, perfect breakfast. Didn't like the roof garden.

P.S. Don't expect low prices.

Our travel agency, Central Holidays Travel, booked us at the Divani Caravel for a 4-night stay in Athens. We're glad they did!

We are a family of 4 (Dad, Mom, college-age daughter, 14 yr old son) traveling to several spots in Europe. Two of us flew in from the U.S., and the other two flew in from Paris, so we arrived at different times. Even the guys, who arrived around 10a, found their room ready for them. We were given adjoining rooms which was unexpected and very convenient. Rooms and bathrooms were spacious, particularly by European standards, very clean and with sufficient drawers, shelf and hanging space. Comfortable beds with high-quality linens. The internet work well. We had some trouble with the A/C being very noisy in one of the rooms, but the front desk and maintenance staff addressed that quickly. The gym and pool are outstanding. Pool is rooftop; check out the view. There is a charge for internet (about 4 Euro per day) and gym (12 Euro per day), and that was a little disappointing given price of room(s).

Hotel is well-located--not far from airport, pier and many attractions in Athens. Divani Caravel caters to business groups and private travelers and seems to work to keep them separate. For example, we were directed to a different dining room from the business people for the breakfast buffet which is included with the room. Buffet was fantastic---variety, quality, service. We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant our first night in Athens, and the food and service were absolutely outstanding.

Divani Caravel is a large hotel, but they offer very personalized service. Front desk staff spoke English well and extended themselves to us. Waiter and bartender recalled our first drink order when we stopped by again on a later evening.

Besides the internet and gym charges, our only complaint is that 1 of the 2 rooms did smell of smoke, and we had requested and been told we had been assigned to a non-smoking floor. Fortunately, the smell wasn't pervasive.

We would definitely stay at the Divani Caravel again and would not hesitate to recommend it other travelers.

At a 5star hotel, in a superior room, there was not even a pair of slippers...
Some of the staff were impolite and made offending comments...
I couldn't find an iron to refresh my clothes ( I asked for an iron in order to do the ironing myself, I didn't expect for "ironing service"

However I have to admitt that the location of the hotel is excellent.

I stayed her with wife and teenage daughter for a small meeting in Athens. We paid a heavily discounted price since it was booked by our hosts (who paid most of the charges, we covered 2 extra nights). As usual in big hotels, internet is expensive 35 Euro/3 days, minibar is extraordinary high. go to a small kiosk across the street to get snacks, water, beer, etc. All in all, we liked the place. Curtains did not block light well and street noise was audible on the 5th floor.
