My sister, my Mother and I have just returned yesterday from this hotel. It is supposed to be a 4star hotel but it's more like a 3star. We had a triple suite and it was called an executive suite, it wasn't really ideal for 3 adults, there was 1 double bed and a pull-out bed from the sofa. Not good.
The room was noisy, the traffic outside keeping us awake at night. The piano bar and the cafe down on the ground floor weren't operating. The bar on the roof was good but closes between 6 - 8pm. That means there is nowhere to get a drink anywhere in the hotel between those hours. Again not good if you want a drink before dinner.
Breakfast buffet quiet good, the menu at the pool bar is basic. The food is typically greek, basic menu, with salads and vegetables coated in oil.
The hotel is in a poor location, we wish we had booked somewhere nearer to the main shops, we had a bit of a walk to get anywhere, which wasn't very helpful with our Mother.
We wouldn't go there again, saying that we probably wouldn't go to Athens again, it's basically dirty and scruffy.
