As we arrived to hotel it was in a remote area---not much for night life or restaurants in the area...abut a 10 min walk to Syngrous subway station and there are restaurants/pubs in that area. The service at the hotel was wonderful--it was our honeymoon so they gave us a complimentary upgrade from standard to a Junior suite---they were trying to get us to add breakfast but was very expensive--to expect at a 5 star hotel. The lobby is beautiful. The room was nice--i wouldn't say 5 star quality. The bed was very comfortable and very good size bathroom. The view of the acropolis from the rooftop bar was amazing---first night in Athens. The pool is nice--small, but has lower and upper level decks for laying out in sun--also has outside dining---very relaxing atmosphere.
Location to the Acropolis/Plaka area is about 15--20 min walk--depending on pace. We did use there free shuttle service to the Parliament--that was nice. Taxis are outside the hotel at all times if you want to use the taxi service. Very easy to figure out where you are going as like I said there there is not much in the area except a very high pace street--where cars/motorcycles drive 60+ mph!!
Really the only downfall was---when we would ask the concierge about restaurants in the area of hotel---we really didn't get any help---no one could suggest anything--probably because there is nothing.
