The building is beautiful and very well decorated. I found it nicer than the Hotel Grande Bretagne, just next door. The room was nice and the bathroom was good. Breakfast, which was good, with such a stunning view over the Acropolis is a very good way of starting the day. On the positive side, I also wish to refer the friendliness and professionalism of the staff.
On the negative side there was a persistent bad smell in the room which lasted for the four days I stayed there. The room was also rather noisy and on the first night I was woken up by what sounded like firecrackers. The location on the 7th floor is convenient for the restaurant but noise is the price to pay. Other negative details include the bedside lamps, which did not work, the lights system, which is not user friendly, there is no free Wi-Fi in the rooms and the safe battery was out (not that I intended to use it but the staff member who accompanied me to the room insisted in making a demonstration...)
