This is the kind of establishment you could imagine staying in as part of your Grand Tour about 100 years ago. Big and plush about sums it up. Perhaps not the biggest hotel room I have ever stayed in but big enough! Large bed and large bathroom. Excellent housekeeping ( our room was made up whilst we were at breakfast).
Breakfast is taken on the rooftop restaurant. Both breakfast and the views over Athens are just something else. Most anything you could wish for both visually and culturally. We didn't eat dinner there so have no comment on that aspect.
The hotel is next to the Greek parliament and many of the hotels clientele reflect this.
I got the impression that the staff genuinely care about their guests.
Top end so not cheap. I reckon it's worth it though. We got a special deal - stay 3 nights and the fourth was free.
