This hotel is indeed a little bit out of the city center, but a short taxi ride (usually less than 4 Euros) or the complimentary shuttle bus (runs every hour) gets you on Syntagma Square in no time!
The hotel has wonderful staff who were more than helpful and friendly! Ambassador members do get recognized and a complimentary upgrade to a club junior suite was provided upon booking a club room with Acropolis view. This was a wonderful upgrade as the junior suite was quite spacious with a seperate sitting area.
Restaurant Premiere is an absolute 'must do': wonderful dinner with a magnificent view of the Acropolis by night. The menu is okay and it's no wonder this restaurant has been recommended by the Michelin Guide in 2010 (as well as in previous years).
Breakfast in the club lounge was good and the evening snacks include a variety of hot snacks varied every other day or so.
The only down side was loud music from some kind of terrace playing until late in the evening (it didn't stop until 1AM) on the first night of our stay, but fortunately this was a leisure trip and I didn't have to get up too early the next day. ;-)
I would stay here again any time for both leisure or business!
