We spent a week at Delice in September 2011. Delice is a hotel apartment. The pictures on the website are slightly inaccurate in that they show a large white post-modern building which is actually the Hilton, opposite Delice. In reality, the exterior of Delice is more homely. The interior is in a sort of 1970s style. It's very spacious. We were in a double bedroom suite, with a separate TV room (which also had a single bed in it) and open-plan kitchen, a bathroom and a little balcony.
Everything was very clean. One of the best things about our stay was that there were daily and thorough maid services included in the price. I've stayed in some hotels where the maid will *forget* to change the linen or won't do the vacuuming properly. Here they even washed our dirty dishes.
The other great thing was the location. It is very central and near the chic Kolonaki district (15 mins). The tube station is also within walking distance (5-10mins) (beware - plenty of tube strikes because of the austerity measures so DO NOT buy a weekly ticket!). It takes a day or two to get to know your area and find the nearest supermarket ( there is the "A&B" which is pretty big and about 10 mins walk from the hotel) and the nearest restaurants. There is one around the corner which does Cretan food (take a right as you exit Delice and turn the corner).
In addition, the aircon was fantastic. There is an aircon in the bedroom and also one in the TV room both are managed with an electric remote.
Finally, the reception staff were very accomodating, whenever we needed to use the internet, or e.g if we required an iron/ ironing board or had any other query/ request they would be very helpful.
Drawbacks - no electric kettle or toaster; the shower head is placed very low - about hip level which means you have to squat under it, or use one hand to scrub and one to hold the shower head up (there is a tub for those who like baths!)....
