There isn't much around the hotel, mostly garages and empty shops. But the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle into town which is handy.
Stayed in a executive room which has been refurbished recently and was very well done. The decor was very nice, bed was very large and bathroom was a good size.
Mainly ate in Cafe Vienna and Cafe Zoe. Breakfast at Cafe Zoe was good, plenty of choice and quality was good. The menus between the two for lunch are similar, and quality is very good, along with dinner at Cafe Vienna. Service is polite and not intrusive. The only issue I have, and it's quite a big one, is that the food takes a long time to arrive, between 45-60 minutes after ordering. This was not an isolated incident but every meal we had in the hotel.
All polite and helpful, check-in and out was quick and painless.
I used the gym a few times and thought it was a decent size with well maintained equipment. The pool is very small and will get crowded very quickly, don't expect a large resort size pool. However, if you're in Athens it is unlikely that you'll be spending your days by the pool.
