We went there to take pictures for a photo shoot. The staff was very understanding and sweet. We used almost their whole lobby. We were there for about 2-3 hours. They never bothered us. It was very pleasant and an overall easy experience.

Stayed in a suite for my birthday, loved the location, the room service, and the room. Until a closer look revealed a number of worn pieces of furniture and broken items. No big deal really except they were charging for pristine. The manager contacted me immefiately and asked me to let them prove the remodel will be perfect. Can't ask...

Stayed here for a week on a business trip and this is hands down the best place I've stayed in Athens. The rooms are spacious and modern and my only complaint would be that the lighting was too dim. I stayed on the top floor so during the day with the curtains open those big windows let in a lot...

We made reservations for Valentine's Day night and were very excited to try the hotel and see if it lived up to the hype.

This is a very stylish hotel with great service. I love how they are so environment friendly. The key card doubles as the light switch and there are paper and plastic recycle bins in the rooms.

Positives: Excellent location. Can't beat the walking distance to downtown. Very nice decor; modern and European, which makes everything at least look very clean and new. Beds are comfortable and rooms have everything you need. Bar is open at night and the lobby is inviting. Neutral: Price. Yes, it is more expensive than other hotels, but it is really nicer...
