Reviewed 13 June 2010

I have stayed at this hotel twice - once for 3 nights, and once for 4 nights.

When booking the hotel I had some reservations about the location, as I like to stay in hotels that are located centrally. I must say that for Athens this location is very convenient. First, the hotel shuttle is very reliable. Second, much public transportation goes towards the hotel, and cab rides are not too hefty.

During my first stay there had been a confusion regarding my reservation (they thought I had two rooms), which was resolved. They
promised to upgrade me on my subsequent stay, and they kept their word, so I got a larger room with the view of the Acropolis. Though, I should note that my first room was very nice too.

Both rooms were spotlessly clean. There was a wide selection of TV channels, without any charges, though one had to figure out ho to operate the channel selection process.

The hotel is stylishly modern, with cool features, and architectural and design elements. The Premiere restaurant serves world-class food. \

The concierge is very helpful, readily providing any necessary information. I would go back to this hotel without hesitation.

Nice hotel. The services of the business lounge on the exec floor are very good. You pay plenty enough for it though! The beds are really comfortable.

This hotel was FANTASTIC. While the staff at check-in were a bit snobby at having two college students entering the hotel, the plush rooms, great pool, and friendly/helpful concierge were excellent! The room itself was to-die-for, complete with a pillow menu with seven choices of different pillows that made us want to stay in the hotel the entire time, despite the appeal of beautiful Athens. And while the hotel is a bit further away from the city center and the historic sites, the hourly shuttle made up for this slight flaw. Also, the rooftop restaurant and bar gave a breathtaking view of the Acropolis at night. One caveat: beware of the exorbitant charges for the mini-bar, restaurants, and room service.

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in May as part of a cruise vacation with my wife. Room was very large, very clean. Hotel has all sort of infrastructure (restaurants, spa, swimming pool, etc). Food and beverages extremely expensive (six euros for a very small coke). Unlucky with room selection: double room instead of king (unavailable), and we were waken up by a machine used at refurbishing at the upper floor. Hotel has a free shuttle to downtown that takes you to main tourist attractions (Acropolis, Plaka neighborhood). Overpriced breakfast that however is equivalent to a big meal.

stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with my family and a large tour group . room we got was huge and even had an extra bed for my daughter . nice lcd television and mini bar amenities. they had an offer of free unlimited tv internet access and movies for 35 euros in a 24hr span. airconditioning though was quite poor but we didnt bother to complain since we are always tired from our sightseeing activities upon arrival. location- quite far from acropolis complex and plaka . buffet breakfast in the coffee shop was excellent, with so many choices, i like the station which serve minute steak and grilled cheese. what i like about our stay is that our tour group made 3 request that they granted without much hesitation. a 5am and 3am breakfast , buffet continental set up , and an 11pm late dinner served ala carte, now thats what i call accomodating. the shuttle bus driver even offered to drop my friends off in front of acropolis museum and even had them picked up later. good service indeed
