Just returned from a very exhausting weekend in Athens. Arrived early hours of the morning 04.00am pleased to say our room was ready, very large room with all the amenities you would expect from a 5* hotel. Just one problem the hotel does not have tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms, WHY! i am sorry but it is standard practice in european hotels nowadays to provide these facilities escpecially in a 5* hotel. Having said that the roof top retaurant/bar made up for the lack of facilities, the views were to die for! avery good base to explore Athens everything very close at hand. Just to add if anyone is thinking of going up Lycabatteus Hill take a taxi to the tram station (8e) well worth it, the panoramic view from the top is magnificent, as is the little church (trams run on the hour and half hour), then walk down (lots and lots of steps to the national gardens
