a stay of two halves Posted 21-Oct-2014
Our first room was not great. we paid extra to be upgraded to a "superior" room with a balcony and we were very disappointed with what we found. In our first room the decor was old, the shower was limescaled, the bed was a twin (two singles and 2 duvet pushed together) not a king/superking and the view from the balcony was of a building site. We requested a room change. However the hotel was fully booked, meaning we spent half our trip in this room. Once we changed, the new room was much improved. We had a brilliant view of the acropolis from our balcony, and a proper super-king bed with improved decor condition. In summary, if you could ensure a room as our second one, we would recommend this hotel. However we wouldn't recommend our first room. The hotel is up a steep hill, about 15 min walk from the nearest metro. If you dont care about having a good view from your hotel, book one closer to the center. You can always get the funicular to the top of lycabettus hill for the same view.
