Reviewed May 19, 2014

Had a very pleasant 4 night stay. View of the Parthenon from the balcony, very helpful and friendly staff, ideally situated in a quiet area just a stone's throw from Plaka and the Acropolis. Very good breakfast combining an anglosaxon cooked breakfast, continental viennoiserie, cheese and cold meats, and Greek feta, olives, pickles, tomatoes, yoghurt and fresh fruits. There is an outdoor swimming pool on the ground floor accessible from the bar and conference area lobby.

Room Tip: Our room was a standard one on the front of the hotel. The rooms at the back do not have a view of...

Really good sleep. Room on 6th floor, nice size and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was excellent and the staff very helpful and knowledgable on all my requirements. 7 min to metro and it's really easy to navigate. Outdoor swimming pool. There are some restaurants about 3 streets away

Stayed for two nights as part of a tour. This is a big hotel and quite a few conventions were also there. Rooms are okay but no coffee/hot water pot. We had evening and breakfast buffets. Limited varieties and were not replenished timely. Deserts were good though. Location is okay but not as convenient as what I would like.

The service was very slow, the breakfast was basic, the pool was basic, the shower was shocking and there were two air compressors on the roof which made or room sound like there was a motorcycle revving up in it through out the night. The room air conditioning on the other hand was non-functional. The rooms were very clean.
I would not go back and I would not recommend it

Room Tip: Do not get the 7th floor on the street side, you will get AC unit noise, try to get a room on the ro...

We stayed for 5 nights as part of a business incentives trip so we didn't have to foot the bill. To be honest I am glad I didn't have to pay as the hotel was fairly average and I think I would have been quite disappointed as the hotel has 4 star feel and definitely not a 5 star one.

The rooms were compact but big enough although the décor looked a bit dated. The décor in the hotel generally looked a bit dated in my view - lots of 1980's style glass and bling. The beds were comfortable but the 2 single beds could have been fastened together properly so that one of us didn't sink into the gap! The bathroom was ok but really, I shouldn't have to fight with a flappy shower curtain and deal with water pressure problems in a 5 star hotel. Our balcony faced the street but because we were fairly high up we didn't have problems with noise. We could also catch glimpses of the Acropolis which was nice.

The hotel was popular with tour groups and conferences which made it a very busy place. The breakfast crowds were a bit overwhelming and catching a lift in the morning was a bit challenging.
We didn't take many meals in the hotel other then breakfast and 1 lunch. The breakfast buffet was average and the one lunch buffet we ate was rather nice. I am glad we didn't eat here much because the dining area is in the basement which lacks atmosphere. There is a dining area next to the pool which wasn't being used - the hotel should consider protecting this area from the weather so people can take their meals here.

The hotel is located on an ordinary street but very close to two metro stops and within easy walking distance of the acropolis and the quaint streets of the plaka shopping district. It is very, very convenient.

We experienced mixed service levels in Athens and the service in this hotel was really good. The staff are friendly and efficient - nothing was too much trouble for them.

Room Tip: Choose a room on one of the higher floors facing the street - you can catch glimpses of the Acropoli...

All your comments have been shared with my team and efforts are made to solve every issue. However please note that the hotel offers 3 restaurants: The main restaurant where breakfast is also served, the Bar next to the swimming pool also giving the chance for a lunch next to the pool and the roof garden restaurant operation only during dinner with beautiful views of Acropolis.

We hope that during your next trip you will have time to explore these choices

Thank you again for your review

Stayed 2 nights here in May. On arrival not question feels and meetings service expectations of a 5 star hotel with welcoming staff and nice foyer however rooms are average.

Rooms are clean and comfortable and Hotel is in perfect location for sight seeing and business needs, however doesn't quite hit the mark expected of a 5 star hotel, even in the renovated rooms.

Buffet was one of the better through Europe however not that of the large American Hotel chains.

Unfortunately in May the roof top restaurant was yet to be open with would have made the hotel all the worth while with views of the Acropolis and surrounds.

Personally no Gym facilities and needing to pay for Wifi in rooms was a negative for us when in a 5 star hotel.

If you are after a nice quality clean hotel in Athens and with limited time to explore I would highly recommend this hotel.

Would stay again!

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the 4th floor or above.

I booked 2 nights at Divani Acropolis Palace Hotel since I was unable get get more preferred hotel in Athens.

The location is very good, 5 minute walk to the Plaka and Acropolis. Internet worked on and off. At times slow, other times fast. Service at this hotel shows that it is indeed a tourist hotel with lots of groups. I am a business traveler, and I was not happy with the service.

Looking at Divani Acropolis from a tourist point of view, it is probably a decent hotel. However for business, it is not recommended.

Room Tip: Get a large room on the top floor away from the conference and group-tourist noise.
