I must start this review by stating that this is NOT a 5* hotel by any standard. Having stayed in numerous hotels around the world I would place it in a standard 4 star category.
The only thing similar to a 5* hotel is its price range but this is something that a traveler must expect when looking out for a hotel in Attika. The real 5* hotels of the area have double Plaza's price.
My review is rather hard on this hotel just because they advertise themselves as a top hotel.
The check in procedure was fast and the reception staff very friendly, helpful and professional.
The room was rather small and the bed quite uncomfortable. I asked for a double bed which they promised that they will deliver with a slight time delay, but in vain. We had two twin beds attached to each other, with separate linen for each bed, which is definitely not the standard for a hotel of this price range.
The hotel was overall clean enough but outside our room, on the corridor floor, a room service tray was lying there for at least 8 hours before anyone picked it up.
The breakfast was just ok, with a mid-range selection of food and a dozen of hard working employees trying to cope with the busy restaurant of a Sunday morning. We had to wait for at least 15 minutes to be served coffee when it is so easy to have a self service coffee machine for the clientele!
There is a nice beach within the hotel premises with enough sun beds and there is a fairly big swimming pool too.
Overall the hotel is not bad but, as I wrote above, it is not a five star establishment.
