One of our best hotel experiences! Desk staff absolutely top rate. Helpful, friendly and professional. Fantastic breakfast buffet. Convenient location with easy access to transportation. Rooms clean and above average. Would not hesitate to recommend the Polis Grand to anyone. Had a wonderful stay and I'm sure you will too. Thanks to all the staff for a great job.
We loved how clean the hotel is. The receptionist was efficient, kind, and nice. Our room had everything we needed. We would have loved a bit larger shower stall. The food at the restaurant is spectacular.
We found the reception staff not particularly helpful. Breakfast at the hotel is wonderful but the packed breakfast for early excursions are disgusting. We had on two occasions and were given a sandwich without butter, a stale piece of cake that was so hard and a small juice. Highly disappointing.
Enjoyed staying at this hotel in Athens. The breakfast was incredible!!! So many choices of both food and beverages. The employees are so helpful with not only holding luggage, but also learning how to make Greek coffee and tips on how to get around the city. Thank you!
The bed was super comfortable but the shower was wayyyyyy to small. The location of the hotel was good. Walking distance from the metro station. We had dinner at the roof top restaurant...possibly the best part of the hotel. The night view was killer! So beautiful. Would stay here again. Would recommend it. Worth the price.
I stayed at Polis Grant with a friend in October for 5 nights. The hotel has medium size room & bathroom, very clean & with kettle in superior room. It's 3 min. Walk from Omonia metro station. The area is safe at day & also at night as long as you walk towards the station and plaka & not backwards towards Archeological museum. We had dinner in the roof top restaurant which has a fantastic view but just good food. The breakfast was another story, it was a celebration in itself, they had lots of options and everything is fresh, i enjoyed it a lot. Staff were very friendly and always offered help, they even made us reservation for a v. good full day tour to Acropolis & its museum & also Cape Sounion to see temple of poseidon with lunch included in v. nice restaurant "Arcadia" where they served fabulous vegetarian moussaka. The hotel was gracious to keep our luggages for the 4 nights we toured the islands in between our stay in Athens in the start & end of our trip. I'd definitely recommend.
Very kínd and pleasent stuff at reception like in the restaurant! Our room was small but comfortable and on all days perfectly cleaned. The hotel is in a real quiet part of Omonia and we could go by feet to Syntagmas in about ten minutes. We will come back!:)
Had a wonderful time. We booked the suite on the top floor. It was a corner suite so the terrace was huge. Great views on all sides minus a slight obstruction from a neighboring building. It was clean and they sent up a special gift for my birthday. Staff was attentive. I called quite a few times and they were so sweet and quick to help. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Enjoyed that each morning. Fresh juice too. The rooftop restaurant was nice. We sat inside since it was chilly but the food was great. Again another lovely view of the acropolis. Lifts are small but I didn’t care. Nice toiletries. Hot water with multiple shower settings. Room smelled a little damp when we arrived. Factor that out and it was perfect.
The rooms seem outdated if you traveled a bit and the fonic isolation is lousy. I could literally hear almost everything that was happening above our room, near our room etc. I had to wake up in the middle of the night once, to kindly ask people to lower their voices. There was even a funny incident were early on a Monday morning at our level, a group of construction workers started to drill holes in the walls, remove the woodwork for renovation etc. There was no sign announcing this or a staff notice to help us relocate to a better positioned room. Nothing like that. Cables in the bathroom above the shower were clearly left visible and the soaps were always missing (weird). How could this be rated a 4 stars hotel? There are some positives like good position relative to city center, very good internet connection and very friendly staff.
The surrounding area is a bit rough, mainly at night. Great hotel, excellent quality, food is fantastic, The view from the rooftop bar is worth the price alone. Would stay there again. Athens is a very scenic City if you can ignore the graffitti all over the City. It is time the City took action on this ugly mess and take back their City.
