“Perfect hotel, very convenient location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

The hotel is excellent, perfect mix of luxury and comfort. The pool in the highest floor has a magnificent view of sunset thru Acropolis, very magical! Rooms are wide enough, nice bathroom, friendly staff who recommended good places.
Location is fantastic, nice walk toward Acropolis, touristic places (Plaka, Thission, Psyri), restaurants, markets, etc.
If you travel there, you would like to know that most of maps are in English, so if you have the choice to take a Greek one, just do it since the road names are in greek, so believe me, really hard to match both when you have "symbols" there. Anyway, everybody speaks English and all the people is very nice.

The hotel is in a perfect location. There is also a minibus taking the residents of the hotel- free of charge- to the centre and to shopping areas. Same way for return to the hotel, at established hours.
The rooms are great, lots of space, clean, elegant and full of good taste.
Towels are changed several times a day, they are never let to stay wet in the bathroom. I never knew when they changed them, but I was grateful. The personnel is amazing, polite and helpful. The swimming pool on the roof is an asset!
I had the best Greek coffee in the lobby, where there is a restaurant-bar.
We had pre-arranged meals, all was perfect, no worries, no stress, just enjoyed the place!
I understand there are also attractive offers on the stay there, so it's good to study them before one goes!
To tell you the whole truth, I appreciated the Divani Caravel even more after I stayed in other hotels and I was aware I compared the places... Divani came always first! And my friends said the same thing!

Room Tip: The hotel is quiet, it doesn't matter which side your room is. Maybe it's better if you stay...

We spent five nights at the Divani Caravel from 25th -30th August, celebrating a friend's wedding. This was our first time in Athens for many years, we loved every minute of it. The hotel was very central which made it easy to get around. The facilities are good, the room and bed extremely comfortable and the house keeping on our floor was well managed. We found all of the staff exceptionally helpful and friendly, the quality and variety of the breakfast was very good. We also ate lunch at the roof garden (pool bar) which was very nice if a little expensive, 26 euro for a chicken ceasar salad! The bar prices too were on the high side which meant we normally only had the one drink rather than staying for two or three. Perhaps a review of bar prices or the introduction of a happy hour may encourage people to use the pool bar a bit more. However in saying that we found the bar staff on the Roof Garden very attentive, providing us with cold water at regular intervals, very impressive.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and will certainly consider staying here again as we will certainly make another trip to Athens in the future.

I spend 4 days here, during my business trip, and everything was excellent : room, food, clearness, staff. I choose this hotel because was close to the City and to my business.
You can relax and have a good time, in the evening/night , on one of the several "tavermas"/restaurants in the area of the hotel.

Stayed for 3 nights and then returned 3 weeks later for a final night before our flight back to USA. Staff was wonderful; welcomed us back like we were old friends. Roof top pool and lounge area is nice.Room was very comfortable. Prices in the hotel (minibar/bar) are expensive, but no more so than you would expect at an upscale hotel. Large selection for breakfast. We enjoyed the area around Caravel Square, more quiet than near Syntagma or the Plaka, but still within walking distance of everything. Have stayed at several other Athens hotels, and this one is one of the best.

Hotel is fine and the room we had was large and very confortable. The only thing with this hotel is the prices, everything is expensive, from the small bottle of water in the mini bar (4euro, but .50 at the small kiosque next door) to any drink or other product. The personnel at the reception is correct but cold and sometime impatient. We would not recommend this hotel.

The overall experience at the Divani was very good. The front desk team was particularly friendly and helpful and their recommendations were good. The rooftop pool is a very nice escape from the bustle of Athens but with an excellent view.

The hotel itself is a bit dated but well maintained.

The location is a bit off but there is a shuttle service a few times per day plus a taxi is cheap.

Charging for wifi access clearly pulls down the overall five star experience - eur 15/day...

Room Tip: See if you can get a room on seventh floor
