My husband, 15 year old son and I recently stayed just one night at the Hotel Villa Athena in room 301, a large triple room with temple views. It was the largest triple hotel room we have ever had - there was still room to use the side chairs and desk, as well as spread out suitcases etc with the king and extra bed in the room! The water pressure in the shower and bathtub was remarkable, and the bathrobes and slippers were a nice touch. Lots of room to hang clothes up was also handy. The buffet breakfast, which was included in our room rate, was very very good - a wide variety of cakes, pastries, meats, cheeses, cereals, jams, breads..... as well as the option of having made to order eggs and coffees. These made to order options were offered to us the moment we sat down at our table, and the eggs and coffee were delivered hot and fresh just a few minutes later. The service by the bell hops and desk staff was courteous and helpful, and we very much appreciated the opportunity to leave our car and belongings at the hotel after checking out in the morning while we walked to the Valley of the Temples (maybe 500m) and spent the morning there. However, the best thing of all about this hotel is the proximity to the temples. The Temple of Concordia was framed by both our bathroom "porthole" and a big bedroom window, and because it was a corner room, we could also see other temples through the other bedroom window. It was magical watching the temples change as night fell, lit up in the complete darkness, and again as the morning light brightened. Don't miss a chance to spend a night with a view of the temples - they are so close it seems you could reach out and touch them!
