I stayed for 3 nights in the hotel together with my girlfirend. I am not really a difficult guy when it comes to hotels but the first thing we mentioned when we entered our room, were the two seperate beds. Big bummer! After informing with other couples and internet researches, we found out that this is mostly the case in this hotel. So, we didn't complain.
The Location is not really that interesting. There is really nothing to do in the surroundings of the hotel. But there is this wonderfull possibility to take a tram to the city of Athens. In 45 minutes, you will arrive in the center of the city. Also very cheap. Ik think for us (students), it costs around 60 eurocents. Much cheaper then here in Belgium
The restaurant was very good. Not that much choice but it did it. The last 2 days we stayed in the hotel, a wedding was arranged in the hotel. They informed us by hanging up letters in the elevators and so on. But in the end, I found it quit ignored. You pay for the service and then suddenly, You have to eat earlier, are not allowed to go to some places in the hotel and so on. I asked for some compensation but nothing was given. Another bummer
Sleep quality was quit good. I heard some couples talking about noice of the tram and so on, but I heard nothing. Also very good beds. the rooms were not really well equiped but it was clean. Very satisfied about that.
Conclusion: It is a good hotel when you only stay for a couple of days or when you are young and don't have that much money to go to expensive hotels. Otherwise, I advise you to choose a hotel a bit closer to the city, where al the fun happens. And if you stay in the Palace hotel, I hope you don't get weddings on the menu ;)
