Great sized refurbished bedroom, very well equipped with modern furnishings/colours and massive comfortable bed. View of the Acropolis was obscured by large building in front of hotel, we were on floor 5, but rooms higher may have better view, although probably more expensive rooms. Very good selection at breakfast to choose from. Pool small considering size of hotel, but very welcoming in the August heat. Hotel is situated along main route to Piraeus and as stated before is quite a distance away from the centre and main city sights. There is a courtesy bus, but we didn't use it as we had an organised tour included, so were picked up anyway. There are also places to eat nearby if you seek them out. Simply Burgers a 15 min walk further along the main road did some great ones, there is also a Starbucks along there and an Italian style restaurant all at reasonable prices compared to hotel. There was a builders skip and waste chute coming from part of the hotel, so it looks as if the bedroom refurbishments are still ongoing, so hopefully the less impressive 80's style decor rooms will soon be a thing of the past, but we were really glad not to have been allocated one of these as quality of room for the money is a much more important factor these days in a competitive market, hotel chains take note!
