We were somewhat worried having read other comments however we were not disappointed. We stayed a total of 6 nights and had booked an executive room. It was large comfortable and clean. We faced the inner courtyard and overlooked the pool. Not being on the view side of the hotel made it somewhat more quiet.The view from the rooftop garden where we had breakfast (included) was fabulous overlooking the ruins across the street and the Acropolis. This view particularly at night was a real bonus. The staff were friendly and helpful particularly the Canadian born doorman!The only detraction was that the bathroom while large had not been renovated and the shower was still in a bathtub with a shower curtain. Given that the hotel styles itself as "luxury" class this was disappointing. What we also loved was the location--close to the subway and the Plaka as well as Acropolis museum and the Acropolis. Overall we would recommend a stay here.
