I came here for a work event at a nearby conference venue. The hotel is comfortable, large, the staff at the guest services and reception were really friendly and helpful.
The rooms are very nice, but not 5* - I'd say 3-4* facilities (pool was closed, breakfast was rushed and you pay for wi-fi?). House keeping was efficient and to a high standard, the noise wasn't too bad.
The prices are definitely 5*, looking at around 6.50 for a small cola, and the service in the bar was very underwhelming. We went for a drink and I asked fro a menu for drinks - soft drinks, coffee etc... I was given the cocktail menu - when I explained what I wanted it was blank looks and a walk off.
Breakfast was amusing - at one point the waitress removed my friends plate whilst she still had the fork in her mouth - a clear sign we were in their way.
The location is around 1.5 miles (walking) from the main square. There is a shuttle service there free from the Hotel which is quite good, the location is not the best - quite a number of adult shops around and I didn't feel 100% comfortable walking around the area on my own.
The hotel has a chain feel to it, quite friendly in some areas but probably not my first choice when I return to Athens.
