We stayed here on several occasions during our 2 week stay in Greece. We stayed 9/25-9/28, 10/2 and 10/5-10/6. Each time check-in and check-out was a breeze. The front desk concierge was wonderful and friendly.
Rooms--Clean and sufficient for a night or week's stay. Very comfortable beds and clean bathrooms.
Location--Not in the best area of the city. We did walk around at night for dinner/drinks and felt safe. Common sense needs to be used & also knowing where you're going! Not a far walk to the Larissa metro, which can bring you to pretty much anywhere in Athens (Acropolis, Piraeus, Parliament, Plaka, etc.). Also taxis are very easy to come by outside of the hotel. If you need a taxi, the front desk will be happy to call one for you.
Restaurant--The breakfast was fantastic -- plenty to choose from and filling. We ate dinner here twice and it was average at best.
Pool--Located on the top floor. Unfortunately, we did not have the chance to experience the food/bar on the top floor, as it closes for the season during September. The view was gorgeous of the Parthenon and I'm sure it is wonderful up there during the summer months.
All in all, this was a great place to stay as our home base, while we visited family north of Athens and on Lesvos. I would gladly re-book here again in the future if the need arises! The price ran between 89 - 109 Euros per night; we booked via the Novotel website.
Also, the gift shop on the first floor has plenty of very nice gifts/souvenirs - in case you need to pick up something quick before you run to the airport!
I will add some photos of the hotel shortly.
