Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 January 2013

This Hotel is one of my favourite hotels I have ever stayed in! The hotel itself is magnificent! You can really feel the Athenian touch.

The rooms are spacious and renovated. The beds are extremely comfortable and large! The front desk are knowable and the concierge is friendly and helpful.

Guest relations (Martha), fantastic woman! Professional, helpful, and friendly. Always smiling. Overall this hotel I would consider to be almost perfect!

We stayed for one night prior to our cruise departure. The front desk and GM were effusive in their greetings and we felt very welcome. Our room was clean and nicely sized. The bathroom could be updated soon, but, the amenities (korres) were lovely. I also appreciated that the scale appeared to have made me lose weight. Always a bonus BEFORE a cruise. The bed was very comfy. We enjoyed the pool too.
There aren't a whole lot of restaurants nearby. Breakfast was a little expensive, but, varied and delicious. Internet was pretty darned expensive - not a fan of paying for it.
Overall, a very nice experience.

Fantastic service throughout the hotel, especially distinguished by Dinos at front desk, who answered questions, gave excellent directions and information upon check in. Delicious buffet breakfast and tasty cuisine at restaurants. Traveled there for business trip. Super efficient and very friendly staff. Great free shuttle bus service to Plaka area that runs on a regular basis. Would stay there again and highly recommend it. Gym very clean with all the essentials. Everything throughout the hotel was fresh and clean, and great views from rooftop restaurant. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Double hung windows make rooms very quiet, and double curtains can be adjusted to light or dark.

we stayed on a Saturday nigh with the three kids and were very impressed by the entrance and modern interior. Our room was inter connecting and on the 7th floor and very clean and tidy and at the price suited us perfectly. we did walk to the acropolis which was 10-15 mins away. We also spent the afternoon by the pool which was also very tidy. would happily stay again.

Room Tip: We had an un renovated interconnecting room - the room was clean and tidy if not the most modern sty...

I know the title might throw you off a bit, but the review title is supposed to highlight the key aspects of my hotel experience. Unfortunately, this title sums it up. Amazing hotel entrance, exquisite elevators, friendly staff, but pretty mediocre old-fashioned rooms. Considering the first steps you take in this hotel, it is only natural to expect something similar when you enter the room. Alas, the dark side of the moon. Ok, it is clean, i will give you this. The bathroom spacious, as well. But that is about it. Location-wise, something to avoid, since it is situated on one of the most busy highways of Athens, 24/7, although soundproof windows do the trick. Room prices competitive depending on the season or conventions held at the hotel. Overall, pick something else.

Perfectly nice hotel with friendly staff. About average for it's price range. However, the extras were so annoying and overpriced we'll try somewhere else next time. Internet is 9e/hr, but that's not for an hour of usage, it's for the period of one continuous hour from when you sign on. If you want to check email for 5 minutes every morning, you have to pay for an hour every morning. A rip-off. Dinner was average quality, and about 3 times as expensive as any of the wonderful restaurants we tried in the Plaka district.

Super hotel. Shuttle bus into the city every hour from hotel and its free. Well worth staying in a club room. The lounge is great and complimentary drinks from 6pm. Love staying here. It's about our 20th visit. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.
