5-stars....you must be kidding me.
The hotel appear kind of worn down, when you walk in the lobby.
We got the room "Panoramic Twin Acropolis View", on the 4th floor (no. 412).
The view was really beautiful and the room was equiped with a huge bed, which made our sleep excellent. The bathroom was a bit old fashioned. The doors were very thin, so you could hear everyting that happened outside in the hallway. Even the neighbors morning wake up call from the reception and their following gymnastic excersises could be heard at 7am.
The cocktail bar just beside the hotel is very loud Friday and Saturday night. Though the windows take some of the noise...but some of the rooms are very close to the bar, so just be aware of it, when booking your room.
Paid a crazy €160 per night, even with the 15% discount per night included. It is 5-star in the paper, but it needs a serious make over to make these 5-star count for real.
Checking out was a bad experience, when I got to deal with a cranky man behind the counter.
I was suprised about the room rate, so I questioned it, which seemed to offend him. Really not my problem.
Anyway I paid the amount without any further objections. He ended up printing the invoice and throwing it on the counter. Not the Greek service I have met on my 2 week long trip in Greece.
I hope this was a one timer, or that he just had a bad day on the job.
Pool on the roof top, small, but ok.
Great panorama view of the city and Acropolis from the bar/restaurant on top as well. Though the prices as €15 for a cocktail or €9 euro for a beer made us spend our money elsewhere.
