Not a bad hotel if you're looking for a good rate with a nice rooftop pool with bar and a clean environment. Wifi is only free in the lobby and poolside. Decent food by the bar, good breakfast. Get to the pool area and grab a cabana or lounge chair before it gets too busy!

We were very disappointed to arrive late at night after a long ferry ride from Naxos to check in at Melia and be told they had no record of our booking even though we had the confirmation and receipt from Expedia. To their credit they did find a room at a nearby hotel and paid for a taxi to take... More

What made us choose Melia was the ideal location close to all tourist attractions. The hotel itself was fairly average. The room was ok - I would say about a three star. The pool was small and forever crowded. Breakfast options were poor with very little vegetarian options and hardly anyone there to serve / help out with the food.... More

Centrally located 2-5 minutes away from a fantastic array of bars and restaurants along the streets en route to the Parthenon. Only negative was the charge for in room Wi-Fi (which in this day and age I think is a rip off) and a few undesirables on the streets but hey you get this in every major city nowadays?, The... More

If you're on foot in Athens, this hotel is great! You're within easy walking distance to everything you want to see and cabs are only a rescue ride away when your feet get weary! There are other hotels that are a tad bit closer to the action, but this one did well. There are a lot of residential buildings, pharmacies,... More

Very good, well located, good staff, wonderful breakfasts and Athens! What else? And everything at a reasonable price. Well connected (buses, metro, taxis, etc). The surroundings are mostly "urban" although the National Archeological Museum is at 10 minutes walking (not to be missed !).

great hotel, pleasant staff, handy location. nice roof top pool area. spacious, comfortable, clean rooms. good sleep quality regardless of busy location, due to good isolation. tip: avoid somewhat seedy area directly around the hotel and head straight for downtown attractions. national museum in its neighbourhood is a must-see!

I stayed 6 nights in August, my room was called a shower cabin on the 5th floor which was excellent, very clean and had everything I required. I don't need a mini bar stocked or nibbles / chocolates - may I suggest that in future you don't stock rooms with beverages and nibbles! It's a great location, possibly on the... More

The hotel is close to Omonia Square and within easy walking distance of Monistariki, Plaka and the Archaeological Museum. Contrary to some reviews, the check-in staff were friendly and helpful and we were upgraded to a superior room which was very spacious and with a big bathroom. The roof top pool has wonderful views over the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill.... More
