I would never usually pick a 5 star hotel in Athens for lunch because of the price. However, I treated myself on this occasion and I was impressed. The cost of a sandwich here is around 16 Euro and a coffee 7 Euro so yes, very expensive. However, the food was delicious, beautifully presented and it was an enormous portion.... More

Very professional and friendly service. Beautiful surroundings, very comfortable arm chairs. Snack and food quality needs drastic improvement. Unacceptable wine service. Brunello is served literally warm in a ridiculous quality glass but it is still charged @ 15 euros.. Food is again medium quality, pity for a place like this. Drop the prices, add some good greek wines and improve... More

This is a beautiful room in a very upscale old-world hotel in the best location in Athens! But 38 Euros for high tea - tea and finger sandwiches [& no gluten items]... well it is a great hotel to visit and you can see the room for free.

One the most beautiful place I saw in Athens... Was there for a business lunch in one of the lounge areas. The buffet was absolutely excellent.

It used to be the Best restaurant in Athens. Top quality, top service and top prices. I visited last week, and only the top prices have remained. over 150 euros for mediocre food and wine. Even worse the service was slopy. Sorry guys, you have been resting on your laurels and many many others have bypassed you.

They overlook the acropolis and the parliament building. You can see the changing of the guards and the beautiful lights on the acropolis at night. The sunsets are amazing and... More
