Very nice hotel, nice rooms. Staff was great, very helpful. Stayed for 8 days, very comfortable. Access to ATM in the lobby. Breakfast was great fresh juices, fresh fruit, best yogurt ever!!! The neighborhood wasn't that great, but it wasn't scary. We walked everywhere. Restaurants were right down the street, and the grocery store was a couple of blocks away. You could see the Acropolis from our hotel at night.

Room Tip: There were rooms that were remodeled and some were not. Make sure you get a remodeled room.

Dated interiors but the best hotel sheets I have ever slept on. Not a very attractive location nothing much to see or do around the hotel. Fabulous dining on the roof with view of the lit ruins of the acropolis. The one restaurant for breakfast has a fabulous assortment of fruits pastries meats cheeses juices.

So, the lobby, restaurants, conference rooms, and bedrooms in this hotel are really really top notch. I have a ton of space in my room and nice leather chairs. couch, everything, I am very impressed.

The staff has been great so far - I am staying here for a 3 day conference and stayed the weekend also afterwards.

The breakfast very good, almost excellent

Beautiful rooftop bar as well!

For europe, the fitness center is very nice.

Did I mention that the room rate is very reasonable? Especially because thus far I have described it as luxurious basically

Here is the problem - they basically ROB you with minibar, and bar prices!!! I mean, it is outrageous - 12.5 euros for a local beer at the bar?? Chocolate bars from the minibar are 7-8 euros? This is greece come on I took a 20 minute cab ride for like 6 euros and even then I think the guy cheated me.

The single thing that would make me rate this 5 stars is if they lowered their prices for these other things. But I am sure they rake in the cash by keeping the prices high and its worth it to them to not change it and remain a ~4 on tripadvisor. (I didnt eat at the restaurant but I looked at the menu and its the same - super expensive)

But anyways, just want to throw out this info for you guys!

I probably wouldnt stay here again because little things like that are just frustrating.

From the moment we arrived for this three night stay we were so very pleasantly welcomed by every staff member that we came into contact with. We opted for the Club Room giving us access to the Club Lounge which was a haven overlooking the Acropolis. Well worth the extra paid to sit, sip, nibble, and view from the terrace! Albeit there was a high profile delegation taking place whereby the lounge facilities were relocated for a couple of days, the hotel coped admirably and little was compromised!

We dined at 'Premiere' and can highly recommend the taster menu with accompanying wines.
Wonderful all round experience which will have us recommend and return!

NO WORDS to describe the amazing staff in here, before even talking about the hotel itself.

Am on a honeymoon with my wife, and still did not checkout yet from the hotel, but I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel, and specially for those who want to have a SPECIAL SERVICE!

The guest relation are EXTREMELY nice, the Concierge "Pavlos" is a sweet gentleman... The receptionist ladies are beautiful, and... The GM honored us with a bottle of Champaign yesterday !

Am a frequent traveler (traveling once a week at least due to job requirement) and I stayed in a lot of hotel, but I can CONFIRM that this is the best experience I EVER HAD SO FAR!

This is a typical luxury chain hotel that lives by his standards, good service, good rooms Good food and a great view of the Parthenon from the top floors. I prefer small boutique hotels, but if you prefer a good quality (and pricey ) standard quality hotel this is a good choice

Spacious and clean rooms. Has a beautiful rooftop bar and restaurant with awesome night views of the Parthenon. Nothing to be concerned about it staying here. Has a shuttle to main square and Plaka area every 40 minutes or so and is usually punctual. Staff very helpful.

Unusually low rates right now due to the local economy. A great value.
