The hotel is a good position, not so far from the Acropolis and in the center of Athens. It is a nice big hotel, good as well for business and meetings. Good breakfast, nice rooms and excellent service. Sometimes they are even too nice, and they take ages to explain things and come and say hi 2-3 times just to... More

This is a beautiful hotel. The staff are very helpful. Having an IHG credit card which gives Platinum status we were upgraded to a spacious room with a view of the Parthanon. The only downfall of this hotel for me is its location. It is about 10-15 minutes drive from the city centre so without transport you are more or... More

It is one of the best hotels in the city with very nice, spacious and clean rooms and at a convenient distance from downtown Athens. Some rooms have a great view to Acropolis and / or Lycabettus and the lobby is quite "refreshing". Regarding location, you can use the metro and walk for 2-4 mins to the hotel in case... More

Conveniently located in a short walking distance from the exhibition centre, however, there is very little else around this hotel location so be ready for much walking or taxis or metro trips are required to see Athens. The hotel breakfast was very good with a great variety of greek and Western foods on offer.

This hotel was great for my business trip. The staff are efficient and polite and the rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean although the mini bar prices are very expensive. The hotel position was convenient although unfortunately I didn't get to see much of Athens.
