“Great view and close to everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

If you stay here make sure you get a room facing the Acropolis and not on the inner side of the hotel facing a big hairy man's apartment. The view of the Acropolis is lovely and the rooms are nice and clean. The buffet breakfast has a large selection and the hotel is within minutes of the Acropolis, the New Acropolis Museum and about ten minutes from the Plaka. There is a laundromat nearby and convenience store that has cheap beer and other things like toothpaste. Just be careful walking around however - my husband and I were headed back to the hotel one night and saw a woman have her purse stolen by a man on a motorbike. Ladies - always put your bag across your body and not just hanging off one shoulder!

I have just returned from Greece and a stay at the Divani Acropolis. I highly receommend this hotel if you are a tourist in Athens. It is close to the Acropolis and the new Acropolis Museum, which is fabulous, and an easy walk to a lot of reasonably priced restaurants and shops. The decor is pleasant and the reception staff could not be more helpful. The bar and pool area is lovely and very well maintained, and the roof top restaurant has a stunning view of the the Acropolis. The Breakfasts were very good and the food at the Rooftop Restaurant was great. Drinks are a little pricey but wine very affordable. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights. WONDERFUL breakfast buffet as well as dining food!! The room was outstanding, comfortable and with great views. VERY UPSCALE and worth every penny. Will definitely stay here again next time. The only down side was the rooftop bar closing earlier than we'd like, for the views of the Akropolis are outstanding.

The good thing about this hotel is that it is close to the acropolis, to the plaka area (where you can find good restaurants) and about a 10 minute walk to the metro. Rooms were clean however the furnitures were a bit old. Hotel doesn't provide a free wifi in the room. Most of the rooms doesn't provide a good view.

This is a good Hotel offering all the amenities you expect. Rooms are clean and good size but the bathrooms could do with a update, however rates are quite reasonable. Whilst they are not alone in it, I feel all Hotels should be offering free wi-fi these days and those that delay and resist run the risk of deterring repeat customers. Staff are pleasant and helpful, breakfast buffet was good with all you wanted.
The location is just about perfect for central Athens with a short walk to both the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.

One of the better hotels but still far from the American standard. Food at buffet is very standard. View was not as good as I hoped. The roof view that was the best was locked and unavaible. wiFi not FREE and expensive.

the hotel is very good and the staff is very friendly. the only problems are:
1-air conditional in the room does not working well
2-the position of the room is above the rubbish and sometime the smell is fastidious
3-the aspirator doesn't work well
4-we think that someone has tried to open our padlock, but we don't have the proofs...(in the morning it work fine, in the afternoon the lock is broken)

the good things are:
1-located a few minutes from the metro
2-below the Acropolis
3-near the central square
4-quiet
5-chic interiors

Room Tip: do not choise the 557 room...
