        Roof top pool

        One day I asked reception to ask Housekeepinmg to service our room and yet the room was not cleaned when we returned in the evening. The airconditioning unit dripped water constantly and still dripped even after we had reported it.

      • Family with children

        Good hotel, nice staff. Located around 25mns walk away from Plaka. Pretty good breakfast although a bit expensive. We paid 1 breakfast fee for our 2 small kids so was fair finally. Good thing although was that they were quite open on breakfast schedules and we managed to take it late. This was in May and the hotel was not crowded, might be different in other periods of the year.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Very useful staff and extended our check out time on the last day =)

        Slow room service & family room is much smaller than i expected.

        Ambiance

        House keeping was insufficient to clean room, I found dirties of past customer behind the curtain.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        It was the perfect location for Megaro Mousikis for the concert we came to see. Also convenient for the Metro station.

        The first receptionist was a bit frosty on arrival at the hotel. My request through bookin.com for 1st or 2nd floor with a view were obviously ignored...Aview of a offic ebuilding an no explananation why?? If a hotel is not fully occupied, it doesn't cost anything to proactively upgrade a guest, especially when they are only staying 1 night. 15 euros for 24 hrs WiFi is shocking in this time of econimic crisis and competition for business!!!!! People don't want to feel ripped off. Everything else at the hotel was fantastic. The decoration, comfort and bathrooms are amazingly "Now". Excellent.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The assistance and advice of the Front Desk staff.

        Cost of beer at the bar and the lack of a shower 'curtain' which made showering difficult.

      • Single
        7.4

        the bed was not smelling fresh hence not easy to sleep

      • Couple
        6.2

        Nice room, clean, central

        Internal costs were far too high. 8 euro for a small bottle of beer and almost 30 euro per head for breakfast is far too high. I have stayed in several five star hotels and none have had costs as high. I think the hotel is a good 4 star but hounded to do something about internal costs.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        The hotel is in a relatively quiet spot and close to a metro station, so it's a good base for exploring Athens. Staff were polite and helpful. The rooftop pool is small, but a welcome retreat from the heat of the city - especially for families with children.

        The "family" room is really just a standard twin-bed room, so for a family of four the beds were on the small side.

      • Couple
        7.0

        Clean room, bathroom; Good standard in general.

        Room was relative small, Mini-Pool only on the roof;

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        comfort of rooms; friendliness of staff

        swimming pool an surrounding area too small
