Divani Palace Acropolis
Ranked #68 of 281 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed October 6, 2012

One of the better hotels but still far from the American standard. Food at buffet is very standard. View was not as good as I hoped. The roof view that was the best was locked and unavaible. wiFi not FREE and expensive.

Stayed: October 2012, traveled with friends

the hotel is very good and the staff is very friendly. the only problems are:
1-air conditional in the room does not working well
2-the position of the room is above the rubbish and sometime the smell is fastidious
3-the aspirator doesn't work well
4-we think that someone has tried to open our padlock, but we don't have the proofs...(in the morning it work fine, in the afternoon the lock is broken)

the good things are:
1-located a few minutes from the metro
2-below the Acropolis
3-near the central square
4-quiet
5-chic interiors

Room Tip: do not choise the 557 room...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and while the rooms were clean they seemed to be tired. The bathrooms definitely need to be upgraded. The location was great to walk to the Acropolis museum and the Plaka. As with most hotels in this region there are no tea/ coffee making facilities in the room which is a problem if you want to have a cup of tea or coffee in the early morning or else during the day. The staff are very business like and definitely do not behave like they work in a customer oriented industry but that was the feeling I got in most of Athens in restaurants and shops. Maybe it's got to do with the problems with their economy which has made them unhappy.

The hotel is quite close to all things. Shops, restaurants, laundromat, metro and especially the Gelato shops. The service was good, staff friendly and the room was huge. We did have 3 adults so we were pleased. I couldn't get my WiFi working on my Ipad so their IT guy helped me get connected. We were happy with their breakfast, a lot of variety and loved their Creamed Rice. Close to the Plaka shops so again have lots of money.

We stayed at this hotel in mid August 2012. It is made for Westerners without losing its old world charm. It is very clean. The staff is extremely helpful. Food was very good in the lobby restaurant/bar. We had dinner on the roof terrace staring directly at the Acropolis. We've stayed in Athens many times and we can't imagine a more inspiring or more memorable view. This is it! Our room was average in size but adequate and had a small balcony overlooking the street. There was some minimal curb/road work being completed during our visit but should be finished by now. Check before booking. The location is perfect if you are visiting Athens for the first time. The new museum is a two minute walk and the Acropolis is just beyond it. The hotel is in the middle of the Plaka area which is the oldest part of the city. There are many cafes and restaurants within a 3-5 min walk. Take a stroll around the paths that encircle the Acropolis. It is pretty well laid out and worth a few hours to hike the entire circle around the site. Believe me, you'll never forget it.

Room Tip: We had room 604 which was great and had a view of the Acropolis from our small balcony. Anything at...

After a long trip we were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready for us at 9am. The staff spoke English very well - all friendly and professional and ready to please. The location was fabulous - easy walk to sights and throughout the Plaka neighborhood. There is a great convenience store across the street - for water, snacks, etc. The room was lovely and the bath spacious. The pool area is lovely also, with service from the bar restaurant. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the view of the pool and the acropolis from our window.

The Divani Acropolis is in a great location for reaching most sites in Athens. It's a short walking distance from the Metro, which is extremely clean and user-friendly, The Plaka, Acropolis and many restaurants. The staff was very helpful, especially John, the desk clerk. The rooms were clean and decent sized. The lobby is very nice.
The drawbacks were: the restaurant is unattractive and way over-priced, breakfast was 20 euros! Better choice is simply to walk a block or 2 to a cafe and buy breakfast there. The air conditioning in the room didn't cool the room off, there are no irons to use...you have to use the hotel ironing service. I think it was 6 euro to iron ONE shirt. There is no WIFI in the rooms. You have to stay in the lobby to use WIFI.
Overall, a good choice while in Athens!
