I stayed here a for a few days in June 2013 soon after the hotel opened. We used our stay in Athens as a jumping off point for a long trip. We loved the hotel and after a long day of travel, the plush accommodations were a lovely luxury. We were upgraded to a suite which was absolutely fantastic and well appointed with antique pieces. They didn't appear to skimp anywhere - even the soaps, etc were of good quality. (That is a pet peeve of mine - nice hotel's, cheap soap). Our stay felt truly luxurious.
We did not take a meal in the dining room which overlooks the Acropolis, but the view was lovely. Its central location was great. An easy walk to attractions, food, coffee, shopping. We felt safe walking at night and went next door to the adjacent hotel for roof top drinks each night (GREAT!). Also, I took advantage of the free internet in the lobby and had help from the staff for arranging restaurants. All the staff we encountered were most pleasant, helpful and patient as we asked for advice.
The gym is small so I ran outside and felt safe doing so. If I had one note to the hotel, it would be - the lights in our room were surprisingly confusing. A note card or a staff person to explain at the beginning of the stay might be useful. But perhaps we were just jet lagged?
