nice little down town hotel. Unfortunately the area very down town,post riot damaged buildings boarded up, graffiti and litter everywhere.Athens was once a beautiful city,with its people proud and courteous. On many occasions elderly people stood on public transport,whilst children sat.
The hotel was clean,with a lovely roof top pool/view,food ok. One night it rained,so we attempted to bring our drinks into the inside bar,only to be told we are not ALLOWED?? Lots of places nearby to have breakfast,the hotel try to get you to join some scheme to enable breakfast?? I got towels in the up stairs Spa,when our room ones were taken and not replaced. There are many lovely hotels in Athens (Plaka area looks good). Melia was just OK,nothing special.
