I chose it because I spent a week there on business many years ago, and I remembered the location. Not a central position, but in a local neighborhood close to the Acropolis: ask around and you'll find plenty of places to eat on the way to/from the Acropolis (on foot, tram or taxi). Yes it's a big property, but it's...

What this hotel lacks in terms of location it more than makes up for in terms of service and the beautiful view of the Acropolis. We had a balcony suite with an amazing nighttime view of the Acropolis. You can also enjoy the view from the club room lounge.

I stayed here for two nights whilst on business. Typically I look to spend 150 euros a night maximum for such trips, however a colleague of mine had used IHG points and got a good rate, however I did not. €240 and €220 per night without breakfast is crazy money.
