Editorial review:

This hotel was renovated for the Olympics, with great results. The rooms are nice, if small, the spa is amazing, there's a combination pool/bar/restaurant on the roof deck which has breathtaking Acropolis views. The staff bends over backwards for guests. It's recommended to get a room with a view.

                                      economy lighting made the decor look drab and uninviting also difficult to read a book; room a bit small considering the price' shower did not work properly; toilet too squashed into the bathroom space

                                      The comfort and service were of the highest quality. We enjoyed our stay, and were made to feel welcome.

                                      The food and beverage prices were extremely high, so we availed ourselves of these to the very minimum!

                                      Lo staff molto accogliente e disponibile. There is a feeling of positive flow the way the personnel works - easy interaction between colleagues. I travel a lot and although this particular trip was for pleasure I could not help noticing this particular detail that often is missing in big hotels. Grazie.

                                      My stay was only one night. No complaints on anything..

                                      Absolutely exquisite. A perfectly run hotel with Old World charm and sophistication and New World Amenities. Breathtaking views of Athens from the restaurant and pool. The highest standard of decoration in the rooms.

                                      Very nice bar and restaurant on the top floor. Good rooms and amenities. This is a luxury hotel, you can see it and you feel it.

                                      We requested a room with 2 beds, they turned out to be single beds and not double so not confortable.

                                      None, but I would prefer to have breakfast included in the room charge.

                                      I always stay at the hotel when when visiting Athens and was lucky this time to get an upgrade in a beautiful suite. I have always been satisfied by hotel services.

                                      This hotel is stunning! Everything we expected and more. Beautiful rooms; gorgeous large marble bathrooms; wonderful service and great breakfast with perfect view of the Acropolis. We celebrated our 30th Anniversary here and had a gourmet dinner for two at the rooftop restaurant - everything was perfect!! Reception staff were helpful and welcoming and the wintergarden room in the beautiful lobby area was magnificent.
