Very nice hotel that is centrally located to the sites. Excellent breakfast with lots of choices. The hotel room is very comfortable. The pool could use some more lounge chairs as there is room for them. Overall, our stay was very nice.

The hotel is beautiful and the service is fantastic. It has a great view of the Acropolis, especially from the rooftop. In the spa, it has a wonderfully warm pool and spa services, such as massage and facials. The breakfast is included. Finally, it is in a perfect location near so many sights. Most sights or areas of interest are within walking distance.

We flew into Athens for a weekend trip. This hotel was excellent in terms of quality and service. Rooms are very nice, top floor restaurant has beautiful view of the Acropolis and hotel is in easy walking to all antiquity sites. I recommend purchasing the breakfast service as well. Lots of choices and fresh fruits. Staff provide excellent service. I plan to revisit and will definitely book this hotel again.

Last minute upgrade.

Pros: Whenever I travel, customer service is extremely important. Our hotel staff was always polite, engaging and friendly. They were very personable.
Cons: nothing
Location: We stayed in Plaka, the heart of old Athens. The Acropolis was nearby. Our "Taste of Athens" was a walking tour of all the major cites in Plaka.
I took my sister to Athens for her birthday. What a beautiful trip! The room I had selected was not large enough, did not have a good view and had no lounging space. It was a standard room. We requested an upgrade and was initially told that the hotel was booked for the week but that they would try to help us. The next morning we were contacted and told that a suite was available. We were invited to look at it prior to having our things moved. We received the suite at a discounted rate since I had already booked the week. What a major difference at an affordable rate! What made the upgrade even more spectacular is that we were able to see the Parthenon on the Acropolis right from our balcony! We were ecstatic!
