We enjoyed staying in this hotel. The location is great for visitor attractions and especially the Plaka. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. We arrived late and were, perhaps correctly, placed in a room near the lift (Room 608), which was noisy in the morning, but we were able to move to a quieter room (412) for the rest of our one week stay and that was fine. We did not have a view of the acropolis, but some rooms do, and so does the nice 'rooftop' restaurant which is actually on the fifth floor, and the adjacent pool area, which has a bar where snacks are available. There is a 'spa' with another nice pool and helpful attendant rather hidden away on level -1, beautiful, (especially when it is quiet).

Perfect location, amazing views & pool

I stayed here as part of a long weekend for a wedding. Not a lot of places in Athens have rooftop pools so this was a really good find. The pool isnt the biggest but so amazing to have when it's hot. The views from there are also stunning. Location wise it's perfectly located so when you arrive from airport via metro, its a 5 minute walk from syntagma station. Likewise all the sites & restaurants are a short walk. Highly recommend for convenience. Breakfast buffett was great too! Staff is lovely. The rooms are a bit standard, nothing special but then I wasnt staying in one of the expensive ones. Despite the slightly higher price tag, given the location & pool, I would definitely recommend!

Great location

Pros: location and facilities
Cons: Room size and layout
Location: The area is rich in shops and food outlets and within walking range of all the main attractions
We spent four days at the hotel and enjoyed the spa and fitness centre but particularly enjoyed the rooftop restaurant. The food and wine were as good as the view of the Parthenon. The only downside was that the room was just a little too small.

Das Hotel liegt in der Plaka und ist sehr zentral gelegen. Alles ist schnell zu erreichen. Hat wirklich eine super Lage. Mit dem Verkehr vor dem Haus ist es eher laut, und auch die Zimmer sind sehr ringhörig.
