Reviewed 22 May 2016

Almost luxury standard and ideally suited for exploring the Athens city center. Highly attentive staff, always helpful, nice room, fast and easy WLAN, interesting bathroom. Downside: church with loud and fancy bells, if you are on one of the lower floors you participate in Athen's traffic - at least it sounds like ;) Excellent: the breakfast!

Its a really beautiful hotel & the staff were very helpful & accommodating.My room was a bit small, but it is what you expect when you book in boutique hotels. However, it was spotless clean, & included all amenities. Excellent service & a very tasteful, fresh breakfast buffet. I would visit again.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
