we just stayed here and it was an ok stay honestly. not sure I would say a 4 star hotel, but barely if so.. the reviews had us expecting a lot more.
here is my honest review/comments
-nice view of acropolis
-very close to metro (red line which is best)
-hotel is the nicest thing in this area it appears
-staff was very nice and spoke English. no complaints with staff at all.
-wifi worked decent in room
-room had a safe and a small fridge
-ac worked well
-for Europe, the room was a vey good size.
-good water pressure in shower
-everything was clean. lobby, rooms bar. hallways only thing a little rough in spots
The not so good:
-one slow elevator
-small bathroom, shower splashed/soaks half the bathroom and counter
-rooftop pool closes sometimes at 6, sometimes at 8. no nightime swim despite the wonderful promo pics at night. also just changed water, so it was ICE cold when we were here. not heated.
-no spa, no hot tub
-2 twin beds pushed together (common in Europe it seems) with only 2 pillows total, 1 per person. one sheet and one paper thin blanket
-1 20" or so TV on a patched/repaired wall that needed painted
-towels were coarse and thin, very cheap
-no nice restaurants or good shopping in the area. area nearby wasn't great. dirty
-with bathroom door open, little room to walk by, so enjoy stepping on the closet door rail on the floor a few times. a day. lol
They could improve this place if they wanted. a few little things would go a long way (towels/sheets/pillows/TV's/paint...). we will stay near Plaka next time. better shopping and food choices, cleaner area etc..
Still had a great trip, hotel served its purpose, but was expecting more based on the reviews/ratings. My honest feedback above. I call it average.
also worth noting, our flight to santorini was at 6am, so we had to take a cab to airport over metro. the flat rate is 35 euro in day and 50 at night. this was confirmed by the hotel. the cab driver went in, gave the desk guy some cash, then overcharged us 5 euro at the airport. sure it is 5 euro, but the principal... nobody likes being scammed. said it was a called service which is more. [--]/scam and the hotel chose to use this cabby.
