We had booked a Club Room and we were upgraded to a room with Acropolis view. The 9th Floor room was spacious and nicely decorated in shades of blue with comfortable bed and... More

Very modern style with great color scheme. Marble bathroom was spacious. Superb breakfast buffet is room off the pool. Good size pool and lounge... More

This hotel is great for service and the rooms are very spacious and very easy on the eyes. I found the staff extremely helpful and pleasant to speak with. It was a good location for restaurants and general stores. Also the restaurant in the hotel served very good food with a wide variety to choose from.

From some of the low scores on Tripadvisor we were expecting a lot less...what a pleasant surprise was in store for us. This hotel far exceeded our expectations. We stayed a week in June & July in room 567...which was the size of a small suite. Spotlessly clean...with a small refrig and coffee/tea pot. Maid & laundry service was consistently... More

Dated interiors but the best hotel sheets I have ever slept on. Not a very attractive location nothing much to see or do around the hotel. Fabulous dining on the roof with view of the lit ruins of the acropolis. The one restaurant for breakfast has a fabulous assortment of fruits pastries meats cheeses juices.
