This hotel had a lot to live up to given previous reviews and its review in the American Express Departures Magazine. Opened in November 2009 it delivered this and more although we were disappointed that the " hidden roof garden for sundowners" was not yet open -- did American Express write their piece from experience or a press release?
But that frankly is a tiny tiny issue. The hotel was far more than we had hoped for. Brilliant location -- we could walk to every attraction and top restaurants -- Seven Seas, The Island and Molyvos (don't miss this last one in our opnion the best in the city). The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, the rooms bright, contemporary with exceptional lighting and really comfortable beds. We travel with friends to "second cities" twice a year and this was a stunner; everything from scheduled BA flights from Gatwick for very good prices to the 25 Euro 25 minute taxi ride from the airport arranged by the hotel. Enjoy the walks along the sea front and the fabulous museums.
