This hotel is perfectly situated if you want to be close to the Acropolis. This is its biggest selling point. It also has a pretty pool and beautiful view from the roof. The staff is friendly. The lobby is pretty if a bit cheesy. The rooms are depressing and the beds are uncomfortable. We probably would not stay here again.

We were 12 people staying at the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is very nice, clean, quiet and with an amazing location in easy walking distance to the Acropolis and Plaka. We loved the pool and it helped especially with the kids in our group to be able to cool off after touring the city. The rooftop lounge is... More

Currently staying at the hotel - paid for an 'internal room' so was not expecting a window, but have arrived to find that the only lighting in the room is two faint bedside lamps. We have work to do so had been planning on doing this in our hotel room which is practically impossible. We requested to move rooms into... More

Service at the reception was very good and our luggage was delivered to our room very quickly. The pool area was very nice and the service from the pool bar very good. An outstanding feature is the restaurant... More

OK! They have the view! to the Acropolis from the rooftop restaurant terrace but nothing else. Not friendly staff. Poor breakfast. Expensive. So old equipment in the bathroom. The same price for the night as at Hilton, but not the same quality.

The hotel by itself is really great location, outstanding view from window and balcony, but as most places in Greece cleanness is a problem. In balcony we found pieces broken glass, sun chairs were half broken, and balcony full of dirt. Also one common thing to all Greece hotels electricity sockets are out of walls, that means broken. Staff at... More

An owesome location for this hotel, in front of the temple of Zeus and a walking distance from the restaurant pedestrian district and the beautiful La Plaka. It's clean with good service, most of the staff are friendly specially the housekeeping and the concierge, the reception man was a bit rude. It's becoming old specially the furniture, I think it...
