Five nights in late May. The hotel is a typically comfortable and modern Novotel, small enough so that the personable and helpful staff became familiar faces quickly.
We loved our stay at this hotel . The location is great ,the staff very kind and helpful, the facilities very clean ,my family and I really enjoyed our stay. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and if we visit Athens again we definitely stay here again.
We were pleasantly surprised about our stay. We were upgraded to executive level room and room was very comfortable for our party of 4 (2 kids and 2 adults). Hotel reception was very helpful when we reported that our car was broken into near Acropolis and they guided us about reporting it to police. They provided toothbrushes and even a charging plug for our phone when we reported that we lost our charging plugs and bag containing toiletries(during car break in). We were surprised to hear even French prime minister stayed there one of the days when we were there. Dollars to Euro conversion for urgent taxi fare can be done at reception. Parking is underground and is safe. Overall very affordable 4 star accommodaton.
Novotel was very accommodating and inviting. The room was comfortable and spacious. They also provide the history channel in English, which was entertaining.
I only had one night at the Novotel but the bed was wonderful and the pool on the roof was very lovely. The part of the city that the hotel is located in isn't that good, though. While I didn't feel "unsafe" there are many closed shops, the area seems a bit run-down, and there are hardly any real restaurants (opposed to bakeries and quick sandwich-shop Everest in the Larissa train station) apart from the hotel's own which is a little pricey. I wound up getting a sandwich from Everest and taking it back to the room.
Really well designed hotel! Lovely bathroom with some nice touches, easy to use shower, elegant frosted glass doors. Like many European hotels, all the electrics in the room are turned on or off by placing your key (or removing it) in a slot by the door when you enter or leave. This keeps people from leaving the room with the lights on. Unfortunately, they had a spare key in the slot, negating its energy-saving effects. We picked this hotel because we got a great deal on it from one of the internet travel sites. Slightly sketchy location, not near the major tourist sites, but very convenient to Larissa train station.
The hotel is very nice on the inside, just not in a great area. It is a 10 minute metro ride to the Acropolis and a40 min cab from the airport.
Novotel is a nice modern upscale place but it is in the heart of the foreign enclave and frankly, I would not walk around the neighborhood at night. Taxi drivers warned us about crime in the area. The rooms are standard for upscale hotels though the beds are typically hard as seems true all over Europe. It is clean but the Greek obsession with cigarettes leaves a tang of tobacco everywhere and although we had a non-smoking room, there was an ash tray. The roof top pool is great and the gourmet but pricey food service there after 8pm is fun especially because you have a great view of the Parthenon and all of Athens.
