As we normally do we picked the hotel because of previous reviews and as normal we were not disappointed. We arrived early of a cruise ship and were given a room with no waiting, we had a room in the back corner so we had a view of the Acropolis and from the end of the balcony we could see the Temple of Zeus, the room was a good size and modern looking. The rooftop restaurant had great views, but was very crowded for breakfast especially if wet outside, we went for dinner there as there was a thunderstorm with pouring rain, the service was excellent and the meal was good.
Location is extremely good as walking to the tourist sites is easy. This would be our first choice of a hotel in Athens and would highly recommend it.
The only thing that the hotel room lacks is a electric kettle or jug so as you could make a hot drink.
