I was only in this hotel for one night and that was enough. It wasn't BAD, it was just not what I was used to. Staying in a Contiki group (quad share) I had expected an average level, but to have a bathroom door that doesn't close (and if it does, you need someone to shoulder slam the door from the outside to open it) didn't leave me very happy. I also don't understand the handheld shower head, although this is very common in Greece and was in all of the hotels we stayed in.. but seriously, as a capital city you would think that installing hooks to hold the shower head wouldn't be too much to ask. The rooms themselves were spacious, the breakfast was adequate and the location was good for eateries, shops and the metro... although the neighbourhood itself seemed a little sketchy. It was approx 45 mins travel from the airport on the metro.
The good thing about this places was the rooftop bar, restaurant and pool. A gorgeous 360 degree view of Athens (inc Acropolis) and the well priced drinks left us happy. They close at 2am so it was great to come back from town after dinner and have a few drinks before bed. I'd stay here again in a group or as a family if I only had 1-2 nights there, but not for longer and not on business or as a solo traveller.
