Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with my family in adjoining executive rooms. The hotel was recommended to me by an Athens resident because of its excellent location. The location is brilliant. All sites are in walking distance and the immediate area is quiet / residential.
The Divani is not a real 5* hotel. Frankly that was clear from the room rates - you get what you pay for. In my view it's really 3 1/2. Rooms were well equipt, clean and cool (given is was 39 outside!). They are also small we heard a lot of noise from the furniture scraping elephants staying upstairs.
The hotel facilities are solid but basic. The pool is a disappointment (tiny with pigeons and mosquitos.) with 20 people poolside it's totally packed out. The breakfast was free (about the best I could say for it). The rooftop restaurant has a stunning view - and cost double the next most expensive meal we had in Athens (which also has an acropolis view).
So why 4 stars. For a short touristic break in Athens the location (for the price) just cannot be beaten. I would recommend this hotel to friends on this is basis. Just do not expect a Palace!
