Room was quite small but comfortable. Internet was expensive but free wifi in some public areas. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Housemaids and breakfast waitresses were "just doing their jobs" and never smiled. Actually seemed as if we were inconveniencing them or intruding. Not made welcome at all. Grounds were quite pretty. Nice walk down to the harbour. Expensive drink prices but you get little snacks with your beer or little bikkies with your coffee, that is when you managed to get someone to actually take your order.. Hard to get a hot coffee here as it was always barely warm. Breakfast did not have a huge variety. Free shuttle bus provided is a great place to get up to the main areas. Exhorbitant mini bar prices. Go out of the building, turn right and go around the block to a fantastic little kiosk where you can buy water and snacks etc even a hienikken beer for one tenth of the price. Also on the same street is Alkiones a traditional Music Tavern. The food and hospitality is so amazing and delicious and home made. Best place to eat in Athens and so cheap!!!!. We did eat one meal in the restaurant in the hotel and it was lovely but expensive and they pour water before you realise you are paying big bucks for the water!. I suggest you eat outside of the hotel, especially at Alkiones, visit the kiosk, catch the shuttle bus and you will be better off. Hope the staff cheer up.
