Great location, easy to walk to the Plaka district. The hotel restaurant and pool snacks are extremely expensive. Rooms are wonderful. Large, fancy and clean. I think the beds are a little outdated and older. Our mattress sagged, and remember in Europe they put two twins together to make a king, both sides older. As was the bedding, my opinion is it's due for a fluff up in that regard. We had a HUGE lovely room, first floor, with a view of the Temple of Zeus. The roof top restaurant had interesting gourmet food that was so expensive, so we walked to the Plaka to eat.
I will say that four of us had room service our last night in Athens and the waitstaff were fantastic, the food good, and surprising not too expensive. My tip? Go down the street a block and buy some Greek wine to drink in your room, surprising good and cheap! Another tip is that we booked way in advance, we were on a cruise so we knew exactly when we would be there so we booked it, it was $300 US additional from our booking price that weekend! Wow , what a difference!
