Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

The entire time I was staying here there seemed to be a stream of dignitaries either coming or going. While plenty of security around as a result it was not obtrusive or disruptive. Easy walking distance to great restaurants and bars with local transport options close by as well. Every taxi driver knew the hotel immediately.

Stayed here for a business conference. Good hotel facilities, clean rooms, good shower although the toilet was rusted inside the bowl which was a put off. The breakfast and lunch was excellent although the drinks were a rip off. A bottle of beer was near 7 Euros and the wine choices were very poor. The location is close by to restaurants and bars although you need to get a taxi to the main town. Overall a good stay.

Stayed here in Feb as part of a conference. The hotel is well appointed, and is very clean throughout. The view from the roof terrace across to the Acropolis is fantastic. However the bedroom, while comfortable,misses things I would expect in a hotel of this standard. There is no facility for a hot drink in the room, and in the bathroom, although there was shampoo and body lotion, there is no conditioner. Also while there is a towelling robe there is no face flannel.
The location is good with a great restaurant round the corner and easy taxi ride to the acropolis. but its use for special events can be irritating. The need to come in through airport style metal detectors, presence of a security on each floor, not always silent at night as a result of an EU conference took the gloss off the stay. On the final day it was normal to have to wait over five minutes for a lift to go up or down.
Good but not as good as I expected

We stayed at the Divani Caravel Hotel in mid-August to early September 2013. The hotel is well located and has a shuttle service that takes guests to the city centre (Syntagma Square - also the starting point of the Hop On Hop Off tour). The hotel staff are impeccable and pay great attention to details. The room was of a decent size, a bit larger than most European hotel rooms. The breakfast is great, and although we stayed here for two weeks, we always looked forward to the breakfast and never got tired of it. We were here for a conference, and I must say the buffet lunch is fantastic.

My only disappointment was the quality of the hair dryer, which in my opinion, works more as a hand dryer than a hair dryer. A good hair dryer means the world to ladies, and I believe it is something the hotel should look into if it wants to be considered a first-rate hotel.

The hotel is also close to eateries and watering holes. We frequented the nearby Oroscopo restaurant which serves delicious Greek and Mediterranean food.

Room Tip: We stayed in the standard room which is really good value for money. The more expensive rooms have...

I really recommend this Hotel. The staff was very helpful. Every part of the Hotel was spic and span. Rooms are very spacious. Food is outstanding and the same for the service given by the waiters. Value for money.

I booked this hotel as a conference venue, and was extremely pleased by the service provided. My room was spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The staff spoke excellent English, and were helpful, accommodating and available at all times. The location of the hotel is just a 15 minute walk from the centre, and there are plenty of local restaurants nearby. Wifi is free and available throughout the hotel. The conference rooms were spacious, well equipped and well maintained. My only two negatives were (a) room service is very pricy; and (b) my room was not no-smoking.
