The hotel is nice and the location is ideal. Breakfast is good but dinner is definitely NOT worth the money. The view from the top is great, you can enjoy it during breakfast or drinks, don't waste your money on dinner there, you can find many very good restaurants in Plaka. One thing that I found very annoying is that they refused to bring me an iron to use. I needed to iron 2 of my husband's shirts and I called reception to ask if i can please have an iron for 10 minutes. They told me I can't, "for safety reasons" but they offer ironing services and the list of prices is in the room. I find that very annoying because I have never stayed in a hotel where I was not able to use one of their irons for 10 minutes!!!! And we travel a lot! Ironing a shirt was 5 euros!
The staff was OK but not very friendly, I found them pretty cold and the type that could not be bothered to be nice.
