I stayed at this hotel over 2 nights at the beginning and end of a trip to the Greek Islands with my girlfriend.
The first visit was incredibly disappointing. We were given a room on the second floor which just had two single beds pushed together and the room decor was like something from a cheap motel. Incredibly dated with no sense of style.
For an expensive hotel it was extremely shabby.
I was going to change my hotel for the return trip because i was so disappointed, but never managed to.
On my return visit i made sure to ask for a room with a proper double bed for me and my partner. This time our room on the third floor was a vast improvement. It was like a different hotel. A massive king size bed, new decor and bathroom, with a balcony overlooking the street.
Much more befitting of the price tag.
It's a great location, but really is a complete gamble whether you get a good room or a shabby one.
The major thing going for it is the nice roof deck where you can have a drink and see the Acropolis.
And also, a common gripe for expensive hotels - you have to pay for internet and can't do it from the room. You have to get a card from the lobby.
