The staff at the Melia Athens were quite helpful during the many strikes and protests going on in the city. The room was spacious by European standards and the bed was quite comfortable. The two primary shortcoming of this hotel was the lack of in-room WiFi and the lack of a nice evening restaurant. Also, the main breakfast restaurant was far too expensive, while the cafe had almost no choice for breakfast. The location is borderline-- with unsafe neighborhoods farther from the city center.
