We stayed two nights in June 2013 for 2 days in Athens (all most people want)
The location is fabulous at the base of the walking path for the ACROPOLIS and across the street from the Hadrian Arch and Temple of ZEUS.
Our rooms were on the 6th floor (try to get the higher floors for the views which are great in day and night!)
Checkin was perfect- no hassles with water and sweets waiting
No busy "four seasons" mentality- I prefer to just take my own bag and wander to the room without all the fuss- but if you need the fuss.....
Friendly and helpful
Internet is the usual "pay" with free in the lobby and the porch (I never understand this)
Computers are free to use and print boarding passes in the Lobby which is nice
Rooms are VERY clean- smallish but room to move around
Beds are duvets and clean- I always bring earplugs in the city but given the Athenian noise they were well insulated
Décor is modern and simple but tasteful
Bathrooms also are crystal clean and well appointed but small as well
Felt very safe and the views from the roofdeck are lovely (as are the meals)
Breakfast was a usual preprepared (I would like to see an omelet bar as the eggs are just yucky in a bowl) but adequate and the usual yogurt/ fruits and nuts
Juices were plentiful and staff always pleasant- nothing special, but always receptive!
