The location is very convenient for sightseeing and to restaurants and shopping, however, visitors to Athens should be aware that when there are protests in Athens, which is often, they take place in the square on which this hotel is located. This can be incredibly inconvenient for anyone staying at any of the hotels on the square.
I stayed in a renovated room on the first floor. The room was large and comfortable. There is a balcony, though the street noise was deafening so it was not practical to ever have the door to the balcony open. The glass doors were very effective in keeping the street noise out and when the doors were closed, the room was very quiet. The bed was comfortable with four down pillows. The flat screen LCT TV was oddly small for a newly renovated room but the selection of channels was good. The lighting in the room was provided by a number of chandeliers and was very elegant.
The bathroom is a bit odd. The counter and sink are approximately a foot too low (it was not a wheelchair accessible room). There is an outlet in the bathroom, however, the hair dryer is chained to the dressing table in the main part of the room. It was however, a full sized hair dryer so no complaints there. There were plenty of towels and they were soft. Robes and slippers are provided.
The climate control in my room wasn't working on arrival and when I called for assistance, someone arrived to help almost immediately.
I had dinner at the Parliament restaurant. I was the only diner. The service was very attentive. The food and wine were both very good.
Overall, this is a good hotel but nothing special.
