Fabulous Views of Athens

Posted 14-Aug-2014
Pros: Location, service, the terrasse.
Cons: nothing
Location: 1 Wandering through Kolonaki 2 Having a cup of greek coffee and a piece of baclava in one of the restaurants on Kolonaki Square
The hotel is located in probably the most beautiful part of Athens, Kolonaki. It is a very classy place, yet not pretentious like the similar class hotels in the US. The staff are pleasant and friendly, yet very professional. They were extremely helpful with every issue and every question we had regarding our exploration of Athens (and believe me, there is a lot to see and experience there). The rooms are clean and comfortable, very quiet considering the hotel is in Athens, with all the amenities. The crown of this hotel is its unique and fabulous terrasse on the sixth floor with panoramic views of Athens, where you can have your breakfast (excellent food with good variety buffet) and plan your day while enjoying the breeze and the beauty of Athens. A memorable stay in the most positive way - will come back for sure.

This is not a 5 star hotel....a 3 at best. Decent location, but nothing luxurious. Be advised...not a 5 star hotel.

Athens worst, not even a 3 star !!!!

Posted 15-Jul-2014
Pros: The roof top view
Cons: Room to improve everything !!!!
Location: Just Ok location
Great location and great view from the roof top. But the rest of the hotel is very old dirty and low class. In the USA this would not even be a 3 star hotel. I can't believe they got a 5 star rating, Corruption in star rating system ????? Expedia should help audit some hotels before promoting them as 5 star. Not a good hotel, dirty and old.

Stunning views

Posted 24-Jun-2014
Pros: everything
Cons: pool area could have more sunbeds
Location: a morning walk up to the church on top of Mount lecabettas not to be missed.
Beautiful hotel with stunning views across Athens from the restaurant, A good 15 minutes walk to the tourist sights, hotel is on a hill but worth the effort.

Great hotel in elegant Kolonakei

Posted 29-May-2014
Pros: The views and lobby.are super
Cons: The room decor and color scheme do not match the sumptuous entry to the hotel.
Location: Surrounded by nice stores and cafes, close to Syntagma place and Plaka, though an uphill return walk!
We stayed 4 nights here after a mediterranean cruise.The lobby, restaurant on roof top and swimming were great, the room was big, but the decor a bit too sparse. Wallpaper looked like masking tape, Trying too hard to be a boutique hotel.. Otherwise a great experience, especially the rooftop with super views.for breakfast and dinner.

Most Spectacular View In Town

Posted 15-May-2014 on Hotels.com
The Hotel Staff were all lovely. The Restaurant was decent. It was good value. The 5*s are definitely awarded for the location but all in all a great place to stay.

Tricked by photographs

Posted 22-Mar-2014
Photographs online were very deceiving. Was rated as a 5-star hotel but the quality of the hotel from the room quality to the elevator size to the overpriced breakfast, this hotel should be considered a 3-star. Checked the lobby out the night before booking and thought it's aesthetic would run throughout the hotel, big surprise. Horribly hard bed, pillows either way too thin or obscenely fat, tiles in bathroom moldy and cracked, room was just ugly. Did not reflect the beauty of the country. Would never return, place was just average.
