“Very fine hotel!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Hotel room had all the 5 star comforts you could think of. The staff was fabulous, and would do absolutely anything they could for you.
Ask for the Acropolis view side of the hotel. Stunning!!!
Food very good. Had the huge buffet, which had many Greek specialty foods. Food expensive, but worth it!
As Hilton Diamond members, got upgraded to club floor. It was the best one of many we have been to!
The staff there was great. They even let us have 3:30 late checkout for a late flight, which let us make the most of our visit to Athens.

The staff were friendly and their service, excellent. The room was well appointed and the food was of a good standard. The view from the lounge across the Acropolis was superb. We stayed here overnight, leaving the bulk of our luggage behind while we traveled around Greece and Cyprus for two weeks. It was easy enough catching the train to Piraeus port near the hotel. Upon our return we stayed another night and our luggage was returned to us intact. On the morning of our early departure we were presented with 'happy-meal' type boxes containing an assortment of food for breakfast.

We spent 1 night here prior to a cruise and it was our 2nd time staying at this hotel. As a Diamond member, we were given a room with a view of the Acropolis on the Executive floor where the lounge was.

Our room was just as clean and functional as our previous stay. As a Diamond member, we had complimentary wifi for up to 3 devices and it was very fast.

We had continental breakfast in the lounge and it was adequate. The snacks at dinner time was average.

There was a mix up in my reservation and I thought the staff handled it well.

We took a taxi to the Acropolis and it was about 15 euros. However, the return trip from Monastiraki area was only 10 euros. From the hotel, we took a taxi to Piraeus port for around 25 euros. From the airport, we took the blue metro line and got off Evangelismos. If you take the "hospital" exit, once you pop up to the street level, walk across the street and walk left and you will see the hotel.

Overall, I would stay here again and recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Athens.

We stayed in Hilton for a weekend, my wife, my two daughters (6 and 5 ) and I. First of all I was astonished by the large, spacious room with an enormous bathroom that was seperated by the main room with glass. The staff was friendly, the services were perfect ( although a little bit overpriced) and the breakfast was beyond imagination. What can I say: a perfect hotel for either a relaxing weekend or business travel

Hotel as such quite ok. The price for the overnight stay incl. breakfast was reasonable. What is not ok is the € 18 charge for Internet use. Other 5 Star Hotels give this for free. Also the prices in the bar and the minibar are excessive and are the most expensive that I have come accross worldwide. I have been coming for over 20 years, but next time I might look for another hotel.
