Yes, we had an amazing view of the Acropolis and the rooftop dining at sunset was spectacular, however the "amazing" part ends there. The hotel rooms (we rented three) all smelled of sewage, we could not cool the rooms enough to sleep in, we were not able to get face cloths or enough towels for our bathrooms, the service was...

Where to start? It's only 30(ish) minutes in a taxi from Athens International airport. It's a 10-20 minute walk from everything you might want to see, Plaka, Acropolis, Temple of Olympian Zeus, and Parliament to name a few of the places. It could not be better placed. When we arrived we were blown away by the glass front and 10/10...

This is a reasonably priced hotel in a great location. Loved being able to explore Plaka and the Acropolis just a short walk away. Rooms are outdated and furnishings still in the heavy drapes, etc. fashion. No real work out or exercise facility. Pool is decent although smallish. True tourist hotel with many large groups staying here. The staff can...

This was our first visit to Athens and this hotel was a great choice. We had the panorama room. The view from the room was amazing - we could see the temple of Zeus which was just across the road and so was Hadrian's Arch; Lycabetus Hill was clearly visible; the Acropolis was to the left. The view of the...

Nicely located hotel, close to the Acropolis and interesting areas of Athens. The staff were helpful, with the exception of those at the Reception who were really rude, becoming almost impolite when I objected to the room I was given for being of a lesser category than the one booked and paid for. Service decent. Rooms are so-so. Don't expect...

We booked panoramic view room which was nice and big, location was near a few places. Food in the restaurant wasnt all that good consider price was a bit higher that average places around but I guess with was because of the view.

We enjoyed two nights in lovely rooms. The rooftop restaurant and bar have amazing views of the Acropolis and city. Very easy access to the Plaka for walking, shopping, dining and strolling. Helpful staff and nice ground level pool for cooling off after long, hot days in Athens.

This is an impersonal hotel, with very indifferent reception staff. The Housekeeping staff, however, were very friendly and helpful. The lobby is big and impressive. The lift system is just plain silly! (will explain later!) The restaurant (7th floor) has wonderful views across to the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus. It is well located for the tourist areas, and...
