With 4 days in Athens, chose a 4 star rated hotel over the usual 3 star hotel, and went a bit over my usual budget . I will not repeat all the good TA reviews, but simple list the good points in short , which made my holiday that bit better .
Location , central ,near Plaka , below the Acropolis , two blocks away .
Close to Acropolis Metro station and all the major historical site .
Large bathroom and good sized sink with side shelves for stuff.
Clean a freshly made Double bed with extra pillows.
Very friendly and helpful reception staff ...Stella.
I will recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Athens and I thank the local expert who gave me the idea of going for a 4 star at a few Euro difference .
A few suggestions to the Management to raise the already high standards ,my rating 9 out of 10 .
The bathroom was large and had all the extras including a hairdryer for my better half ,but needs a small stool to help one to exit the wet bath at the same level as the bath base , to eliminate the chance of slipping when stepping out of the bath .
For a 4 star , I would consider , the area Outside the front door to be more pleasing and would spend some money on cleaning the plain and run of the mill pavement setting of the area . The interior foyer is very good and pleasing and is a contrast to the outside pavement on the high road .
I may be wrong on this , as I usually switch off the electronics while on holiday , but the internet is not free in the hotel , and may not be a good attraction for the younger generation.
Overall a very good experience , in line with many other reviews . Thank you for a nice break .
