We were welcomed as Ambassador IHG Members and directed to the Club Lounge where we were checked in and notified of the services offered by the hotel. We had booked a Club Room and we were upgraded to a room with Acropolis view.
The 9th Floor room was spacious and nicely decorated in shades of blue with comfortable bed and a sitting area with sofa and armchair and work desk. There was a large TV with large range of domestic/international channels, tea/coffee facilities and a good deal of storage space.
Bathrobes and slippers were provided as well as a welcome platter of fruit and bottled water, we also received an Ambassador welcome gift. The bathroom was ideal with combined bath/shower and a good selection of toiletries.
We had use of the Club Lounge which was spacious and a great place to relax with a large buffet breakfast available in the morning, lunchtime canapes and evening selection of appetisers with good range of alcoholic drinks available; snacks and soft drinks were also offered throughout the day. The Club terrace was a nice area with a good view of the Acropolis where a telescope was provided for better viewing of the temple.
The pool area although on the small side was pleasant with a good amount of sun loungers available and staff members always on hand to replenish drinks.
This is a fine establishment not too far from Central Athens with courteous staff members; we would stay again when in the area.
