We upgraded to the club level, and it was well worth it. Great concierge service, and the nicest people working at the hotel. Make sure to get a room with a view of the Acropolis! It is worth the extra money.

Stayed at the hotel for 5 days on business. For business travellers preferring a somewhat standardized yet top notch service package the hotel is close to perfect. Cleary the competitive pressure has brought this place to its peak.

Hotel is a little out of the centre but offers a free shuttle bus and in the evening the taxis are pretty cheap. We upgraded our room to be on the newer renovated 7th floor giving us access to the club lounge. It was 60 euro's per night to upgrade. As the breakfast is a staggering 37 euros per person... More

at 10 minutes walking to reach the Plaka, this hotel is just fantastic. Rooms are big and modern, the breakfast is very good and the restaurant on the top is so good. The decoration is also very nice, the gym and the pool is perfect.

spacious rooms, quality amenities; free shuttle bus available every half hour into the center of Athens; the buffet breakfast was quite pricely so we opted to eat at local restaurants at the Plaka; secured a very good price on hotels.com well beneath what was offered at the hotel website.
