“Once is enough !”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Our room was clean and comfortable enough apart from the pillows and these were TERRIBLE ! However this hotel does not live up to it's star rating. The prices for the mini-bar were :- small toblerone 7Euros ; Pringles 5.5 Euros ; Water 3 Euros ; Kitkat 5.5 Euros. I mention these prices as I notice other reviewers have commented.
Our problems began when the air-con failed to cool our room. We were not able to resolve this and so had an uncomfortable night. Our buffet (pre-cruise) in the lower dining room was a fiasco, no free tables and when we finally manged to get a table no cutlery, no waiter to serve coffee. It took us 15 minutes to get coffee served. I can find far better than this hotel when in Athens !
If you want an evening meal there are some nice independent tavernas along the side of the hotel where you can eat in the garden. We had an excellent meal.

We discovered Caravel Hotel from a nice Google banner I came across the other day. We decided to stay two nights before fly over to Mykonos Island. Everything was perfect. Service, breakfast, staff and of course the areas. It seems to be a classic valuable hotel in Athens and the location was useful for us since we had a connection to the shopping areas as well as the popular attractions.
Note: We lost our photo camera and the Reception made an announcement at the monitor that a Nikon camera was found!!
Thank you, Caravel.

This Hotel is highly recommended

Awful experience. At 10am they started to drill close to our room fixing something in the hotel being impossible to sleep. We called to reception and the answer was: “It is 10 in the morning, and sorry but we cannot stop the works”. After 30 min of complains they gave to us another room. It is unacceptable that you are on hollidays and you cannont wake up when you want and overall, in a five start hotel to receive an answer like this. I will not come back.

I've stayed at the Divani Caravel many times now and have written several reviews. The service is consistently excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is great. So many of the larger hotels in Athens suffer from being on the main north south artery but the Divani is set back behind the hotel and enjoys relative peace. The rooftop pool is also a great plus point.

One of the popular hotels in Athens.

Its central location makes it popular to tourists who wish to be around the city centre but yet outside the noise and crowded areas.

Service is ok, breakfast variety satisfying.

A nice short stay.

Lack of security. Bad housekeepers. Rooms are old. Piscine service stops at 7pm. Tried to get stolen things back manager never believed us. Dishonest housekeepers. You have to lock your suitcases !
Breakfast is very good.

Having stayed in many five star hotels around the world, this is not anywhere near the same standard. The rooms are tired, we had to ask to move because of noise, it's out of the centre of Athens, the pool has no shaded areas, you have to pay extra to use the gym and sauna. We gave it a try because some reviews said it was good. It is not worth the money and you would be better to look in other areas for better deals. Those who've said it is the best hotel have not stayed in very many to make this comparison. We were amused at the sign which said it belonged to the great hotels of the world.

Room Tip: If you stay on some floors you will have noise all day because of ongoing renovations. Check before...
