At first when we walked in we thought wow amazing, but when we opened our door to our room we where greeted with a smell of a old pub in Redfern and a room that would have cost me $69 a night in Sydney. If it wasn't for the amazing view I'd be demanding a refund.

The first two nights we were upgraded to a deluxe room which was spectacular with a fantastic view of the monuments and they are illuminated at night. When we returned from our tour we were given a room in the lower levels with no view and not a great room. Rooftop restaurant has the same great view and had excellent...

The restaurant saves this hotel from getting a one star rating. The restaurant is top notch; the food is excellent and the service is very accommodating and helpful. The hotel is another story and for the most part is really falls on the front desk and management because all the cleaning staff/crew is very friendly and did a great job....

This hotel is a large conference hotel well-situated near the Plaka and Monastiraki areas of Athens, and is a good base for exploring. Staff are efficient and helpful. We had a problem with a broken window in our room and they immediately moved us to a new and bigger one. Breakfast on the 7th floor terrace overlooks the Acropolis, and...

This is not a five star hotel so don't be fooled. The room had a "king" bed but in actuality it was two twin beds smashed together. The rooms are outdated and in desperate need of remodeling. It also doesn't have other amenities such as a coffee maker nor bottled water. The only thing this hotel has going for it...

We held a works meeting here and guests stayed in the hotel. Everybody was very satisfied with the hotel - the location is great, the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus are within easy walking distance. The roof top restaurant was very pleasant with amazing views and the food good (although pricey). Bedrooms were clean and comfortable but lacked tea making...

We arrived by Cruise ship, very early am. Took taxi to hotel (about 15-20 minutes). Cost was about 25 euros'. It was great location for sightseeing. The Hop-on-off buses were half block away. The staff was great. at 9 am, they stored our luggage. We used the safes at check-in as our room was not ready. The "safe room" was...

The hotel is very well managed, in a great location, and has unforgettable views of the Parthenon, the Temple of Zeus, and the highest hill above Athens from the Roof Garden restaurant. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the Roof Garden....all was excellent! Our server, Maria, was so very kind and efficient.....she took wonderful care of us! We would definitely...
