We had stayed in the Melia, Athens in February. The hotel is near the Omonia metro station and so it was convenient to travel to the other parts of the city. The National Archaelogical museum is a couple of blocks from the hotel and is a few minutes walk. The main areas of tourist interest like Syntagma square and Monastiraki are nearby and take few minutes by metro. The hotel staff were friendly and professional. The buffet breakfast had a decent spread. The hotel has a rooftop terrace area with a swimming pool which was closed to hotel guests in February (maybe because it is the lean season). The rooftop has great views of the Acropolis. We felt that the area around the hotel was a bit "depressing" but that may be due to the economic scenario.
Overall - we had a good stay at the hotel.
