We arrived well past midnight from the ferry in Santorini. Our bookings were waiting for us and a pleasant surprise was waiting. We had a room with a view which was an upgrade. There was a great view of the temple of Zeus which was good as the other hotel we stayed gave us a view of the Acropolis. There was some room noise from the street below, and a funny wailing noise that I found out the next morning was from resonance due to the wind in the window. Opening the window or drawing the thick curtains cured it somewhat. Beds were comfy. Bathroom was good and very clean. The room had a minibar, safe TV but no coffee.minibar prices are on the higher side. If the prices were reasonable I would have tried something, but the kiosks a short walk from the hotel where prices are much better offer the minibar some competition! The rooftop bar offers breakfast from 6.45 to 10.30 on weekdays and upto 11 on weekends. It offers the best views in town with the temple of Zeus on one side and the Acropolis on the other. Breakfast is adequate but the menu is not much varied each day. The staff are helpful and friendly. We were offerred a late checkout in one of the rooms for free! Very good. The hotel also has a fantastic location 50m from the Plaka area and very close to Acropolis, the Acropolis museum ,The Temple of Zeus and Hadrians arch. I'll definitely recommend the place.
Room 315 has a view but no balcony and the wind noise can be loud
