    Beautiful and comfortable room, gorgeous pool and sitting areas, perfect location to see Acropolis and new museum, rooftop bar and restaurant is not to be believed! View from rooftop has to be the best in Athens. Go to see Acropolis late in the day to avoid the crowds and see it in the gentle light of sunset...you won't be disappointed.

    No free Wifi Internet in hotel and internet fee is expensive.

    The view from the seventh floor is magnificient especially at night, the staff are very courteous and helpful, and the hotel is very clean.

    We didn't like the idea of going out of the hotel to access the business centre/internet office. For security reasons, the business centre should be located within the hotel

    Location ´- could not be better in Athens. All important sights at a walking distance -and could even be seen from the window. A nice shopping and restaurant district in the old city also nearby. Luxurious , comfortable rooms in the upscale category, and a fabulous breakfast with a breathtaking view to Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus

    The hotel is ideally placed and within easy walking distance both for the Plaka and the Acropolis. The rooms facing the pool area are quiet. The rooms were very clean. The price for the room was ok. The breakfast was outstanding - with a large variety of dishes. The pool and the pool area looked good - but late March was a little too early for bathing - but it must be nice when it is warmer to have the opportunity to cool down in a pool in the middle of a big city.

    The roof-restaurant probably has the most fantastic view over Athens and the Acropolis. There is no doubt that the chef is very ambitious - and the service is very good. But it is very expensive and the choice on the menu is very limited. The evening we dined there, the restaurant was practically empty. If the restaurant had more choices in a reasonable price range - much more people could enjoy the restaurant and its fantastic setting.

    Location

    Only 1 staff member serving at pool who was so busy we did not get served and waited ages for towels. Breakfast is definitely not what is expected at a 5 star hotel. I had to request that they replenish two dishes which were empty and the response was we are busy!! A 5 star hotel??
