On arrival we were delighted to find out we had been upgraded to a suite! A beautiful, old fashioned, rather "over-the-top" lavish room right at the front of the hotel with a fantastic view of the Temple of Zeus. The staff were friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The breakfast (included) on the roof terrace was fantastic with a good selection and a priceless view of both the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus. (NOTE: breakfast was cleared away very promptly - check times carefully!) Cocktails and bar snacks on the roof terrace were VERY pricey but magical and worth it on the first night when we were tired and didn't want to head out into the city.
The location was great, an easy tube ride from the airport (one change) with a 5 minute walk from the station to the hotel and close enough to walk to to the Acropolis and museums, coming back for a cool off in the pool at lunch time before heading out recharged.
