I choose this hotel because the sky lounge view, but it was close under maintenance

Room are clean and front desk staffs are friendly and quickly services

Fabulously appointed room. I got a great deal on it thru Orbitz, and paid half as much as friends who shared rooms close to the Plaka which were much smaller. This place is about a 15-20 minute walk to most places you probably want to go out in Athens, but you're going to do a lot of walking anyway, so .8 of a mile isn't excessively more to add on to your journey. It is in a more business-ey district (as opposed to residential), so many things will be closed on the weekend, and there will be some homeless people around, but no one was bothersome in any way at any time of the day I tool walks around this area. (I'm a female who took solo walks until about 11pm on less-populated deserted weekend evenings as well - it is perfectly safe.) Fantastic pool area, good for just relaxing. Staff was super helpful and nice.

Reception was incredibly helpful and pleasant. I would say the sky lounge needs to have better service as the servers weren’t very attentive.

That the air conditioning does not work, the temperature of the room was 24 degrees Celsius

Increible view, great rooftop pool and bar area. Easy access to all of the major attractions and the staff were absolutely fantastic. Could not recommend this higher it was all that I had hoped and more.

Detail-oriented organization, professional, courteous and caring staff. Staff is attentive and experience is personalized. I injured my knee during our trip and the staff ensured I promptly had ice frequently throughout our stay and staff inquired about my well being when we went up to the sky lounge - which was beautiful. Overall, the experience was very good. We felt very safe and comfortable at Melia Athens.

Too much graffiti everywhere and not a lot of food choices. Every place offered the same thing no variety. The view was nice from the roof top.

The rooms are comfortable, quiet and perfect for two people. The front desk are friendly and efficient. The roof top view is amazing. Reasonable, walking proximity to the tourist areas. We would return here

I was glad to be on the 8th floor, as Athens has a lot of car pollution ( combustion engines & smokers ). Next to the nearby Akropolis on the hill, it was great to have fresh air up there. Hotel steam room is very nice and one of the few places in Athens which actually really have steam in an acclaimed and named steam room. Whirlpool bath is very nice - Its hard to find a Jacuzzi in Athens, so the whirlpool baths are a good addition. A great hotel :)

No what I paid this is.no good the food.staff desk. Not tv.chanels.the light on bathroom not working

Quality nice. Pool/bar great. Rooms comfortable. Only issue was neighborhood. Short walk to Acropolis, but wouldn't venture out too far. Even taxi driver warned us about area.

-No air conditioner -No hot tub or pool in service -doing maintenance on hotel so electricity was out for a period of time during the day -hotel staff said we were not allowed to bring food to our room from outside -extra 10 euro per day charge for our 4 month old infant to stay in our room -hidden fees for everything -Internet was extra charge per day -location was not close to any of the major sites -front desk staff was rude
