    Superb

    We stayed here at both the beginning and end of our trip to Greece. For the first stay they upgraded us to a suite, which was really, really nice. We made good use of the rooftop pool (a rarity in Athens). Also, loved the housekeeping and turn down service in the evenings. Very comfortable bed.

    The prices for "extras" are outrageous-- 15 euros/day for Internet (wired or wireless), a cup of coffee is 6 Euros, the breakfast buffet is 29 Euros (and not worth it). If we hadn't gotten a good hotel rate, I would have felt totally gouged. Tip: There is free wireless internet at the restaurants in the square next to the hotel (E.G., Pita Pan).

    Its like a construction site wiith too much noise! Builders, drilling and knocking down rooms. Impossible to stay in your room from 8am till afternoon

    The stuff was helpful and very polite.

    I believe that the information that the hotel disposes in the Booked.net description is misleeding and out of the reality. This is not a 5* hotel at all. Hereby I mention some of the problems we faced 1) there is only 1 swimming pool in the roof garden with 60km/h wind. In the description there were 1 indoor, 1 outdoor, 1 indoor (seasonal), 1 outdoor (seasonal). Now they have changed it after i made complaint. I did not get an answer, neither an apology for my complaint even after they admitted that it was a mistake in the description 2) Breakfast 29 euro. 3) Fitness with surcharge. 4) Wired internet was charged even if they say its free in the description of the hotel 5) Tv crt 20 years old. They say satellite tv but i could hardly find a well known tv channel. I dont know which package the pay for (if they pay for it :-) ) 6) No space for your legs in the toilet. And i am only 1.75 7) There is no place to find breakfast nearby. For lunch dinner there is Pita pan by the corner (greek gyros) 8) spacious lobby with only 10 seats. It means that if you want to spent time you have to go to the bar and ... pay! 9) They did not change the cover sheet when it was dirty. 10) The size of the room is small for a 5* hotel and the furniture chosen make it even smaller. 11) there are 6 stairs in front of the hotel and i had to lift the pushchair of the baby every time i went in and out.

    Superb

    Room was clean and nice - bit small for 4 people but serviceable. The rooftop pool is great after walking around Athens in August - very refreshing and nice views. A number of convenient restaurants on the same block.

    Bit of a walk (30 minutes) to the major tourist areas (Syntagma Square) but the metro is only 10 minutes away.

    Pleasant stay, large comfortable room and bathroom, but a bit out of date. Old fashioned TV.

    The price of the breakfast buffet outrageous at €29 per person. Luckily, there are a lot of cafes within a few hundred meters from the hotel.

    The room could use a flat tv. The bath amenities were great, the bed excelent mattress. The wifi was free of charge which is great in other hotels could get over 20,00 Euro a day with good signal. The most impressive of all was at my early morning check out by Mr. Giorgos, he was the most polite and efficient receptionist I have ever met.

    The friendly staff. The location, easy walk to city centre but far enough to be quite offering a calm easy accessible area for Taxis etc. Nice little square with a park and evening restaurants near by. Fabulous view from the swimming pool and excellent spa.

    Rather expensive Drinks in the Lounge Bar

    Great staff, excellent service, clean and very nice rooms, great views too. Pool was amazing.

    Breakfast price meant we never tried it (28€ pr. Person). They lose business with those prices. So much cheaper to eat around the corner. Also not very fond of smoking in the pool area. Very disgusting.

    Very professional staff, bed was amazingly comfortable, very good view!

    The luxury as described was a bit outdated in style, meaning it was more luxury from the 70s rather than today. Just mentioning here though it is not that important...

    Expensive drinks and food for breakfast.

    Fabulous

    The hotel itself is great. The location was OK as there are few restaurants to dine in around the hotel.

    They charged for using the fitness center. The nearest translation is walkable but in summer it was not a good idea.
