Great location & hotel

Hotel was perfect in every way. Concierge arranged pick up at the airport, personal tour of Acropolis with knowledgable English-speaking guide, maps of the city and metro, tips about getting around. Front desk customer service excellent from check-in, exchange of money, help with wifi. Pool and pool bar/restaurant was great for both overall service, drink and food quality. Breakfast buffet was amazing and the view spectacular. Lobby bar/restaurant was excellent as well. I didn't use the spa but I heard from friends living in Athens that it was top notch. I give them high ratings and I tend to be quite critical.

Take a walking tour of Syntagma Square and surrounding monuments, including the Acropolis with a personal tour guide. Expensive but well worth it!

"Lovely sanctuary"

Arrived 9:30am, expected to wait for check-in but was immediately given rooms. Upgraded to Butler Floor (don't waste money booking this upgrade) Concierge services mark up excursions, tickets and taxi trips. Their advice was not always accurate. Overall, hotel and staff wonderful. Location directly center to everything you want to see. Rooms beautiful/elegant. Over-priced breakfast in keeping with ***** hotel. Roof-top bar has must-see view. Hired taxi driver for two days - private tour outside of city to see Corinth and Sounio ruins and beach. Better fit for our schedule than group tour. Plan to walk Monastiraki flea market only on Sunday morning. Great experience and local character. Breakfast in local street cafes much better than near hotel.

Negotiate with taxi driver for private tour outside of city. Personal fit for your schedule; less wasted time than group tour. Drove to Corinth and beach. Next day to Sounio and beach hotel (lunch, showers,umbrella and chairs on beach. Driver stopped at port on return to Athens for our prepaid ferry tickets. Avoided early arrival next morning for ferry to Mykonos.

An Excellent Hotel to Stay

This was an excellent hotel recommended by a friend. We always stay in good hotels when out of town, but have never seen such a classy hotel with excellent service. The view of the roof top restaurant is truly breathtaking. We strongly recommend this hotel to all and will definitely go back there on our future trips to Athens. Athen is a beautiful city with very nice people to visit. When planning a trip do not forget about visiting as many islands as you can. The three small islands we visited in one day were so beautiful.

Watch out for an "upgrade"

The Hotel is Ideally situated for the traveler to athens the rooms are Increadable but maintanance is poor. Watch out for the "upgrade" we were to get a suite with buttler and got a smaller suite without buttler, no refund of cost difference because it was an "upgrade" to what?

You are three blocks to the center of history and it is all there for you to experience as must do at least once in your life.
