good location but the worst rooms

Posted 01-Jul-2015
Pros: pool area & restaurant was very nice with amazing view
Cons: rooms need major renovation & care
Location: excellent location. lots of restaurant & night life
its was our honeymoon, we were in Greece for 10 days. Athens was our last stop after visiting beautiful Greek Islands. we stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. we had the worst smaller room I have ever stayed in my life. no consideration was given that it was our honeymoon. there was a panel (not actual wall) dividing our room from next door. I can hear people next door walking around & flushing toilet. so intimate. very poorly design washroom, every time I took a shower, whole washroom was flooded. its not a 5Star hotel, 3stars at best.

Impressive Service

Posted 01-Jul-2015
This small boutique hotel is in the heart of Athens' most prestigious residential area. Surrounded by trendy shops and restaurants. Convenient access to public transportation and historic sites. Spectacular view of the city and Acropolis. The staff could not have been more accommodating. The service was excellent. The concierge's recommendations were spot on given our requests. Thank you for being our home away from home!

Posted 15-Jun-2015
Enjoyed the amazing view from the rooftop bar overlooking Acropolis and view from the pool.

Most Horrible Stay I have had in 25 years

Posted 15-Jun-2015
Pros: If we could have been placed in a proper room other than the basement there were good views
Cons: There is absolutely no excuse to give us the worst room available because we booked on Expedia.
Location: Just made for the most miserable experience ever and would never ever recommend this hotel to any Americans booking via Expedia.
I have been traveling for more than 25 years and have used Expedia a great deal for personal travel. My wife and I decided to travel to Greece early June for my 55th birthday. Greece was fabulous and so were the people. Santorini and Mykanos was awesome. We booked our travels (hotels, local airlines and transfers) via Expedia. Upon check in at the St George Lycabettus the person at the front desk made a smart comment about not using a proper booking agent and booking with Expedia. Since we booked via Expedia our Deluxe King Suite with a View turned out to be in the basement next to the staff elevator. Upon entering this small room we noticed 3 single beds? Not at all what we are used to. After opening the curtains for the view of the Acropolis, we saw nothing but a wall and an air conditioning. Not what you would expect for almost $1000 USD for 2 nights. We tried to put our documents in the safe and it didn't work. So we tried to call the front desk and the phones were out. We went to bed early but couldn't sleep since all you could hear was the staff changing right next door and the constant noise of elevator. Early the following morning we asked the manager to please help with a better room and again she asked why we should get a room with a view since we booked on Expedia. She said she would try to move us. Later in the day we inquired and no one knew what we were talking about and the hotel was full. We left the bottle of wine thin the room.

Fabulous View and Great Staff

Posted 11-Jun-2015
Pros: The staff, room and view.
Cons: Nothing that we found.
Location: Fun pedestrian area sidewalk cafes and shopping. Not far from other Athens activities.
The hotel sits atop a hill and has a breathtaking view of the Acropolis. The breakfast is outstanding and the evening restaurant is also very good. The staff were always very helpful and friendly. Because the hotel is on a hill, walking to other areas are a little more difficult, but for those who don't want to walk, taxis are easy to get and very reasonable.
