              The cooperation of the staff (Stefano the concierge was great, and the receptionist Christean was so so nice) The room upgrade to a nice suite The location is perfect

              It is not a 5 star hotel but ok according to other hotels in Greece but not compared to other countries.

              i liked the breakfast, the hospitality and the way they make our stay pleasant. they were helpful and I did not have the feeling they were trying to get more money from us like some hotels do. Free wi-fi, complimentary sauna and jacuzzi, printing...

              The room I stayed in did not have a shower and that was the only problem with my stay

              Great service! Wonderful breakfast! The location is perfect! We felt at ease from beginning till end of our stay, we really had a great time!

              Spa facilities could be a bit larger. We like to put our window open at night, but there was a lot of noise of industrial systems at the courtyard.

              The breakfast was very good. The view from the Restaurant astonishing. Dinner was good but comepletely overpriced.

              The hotel room was very spacy. The bathroom dated after post world war. After every shower the bathroom was flooded. Airconditionning was not reacting to commands. Why does one need in April airconditionning - hence enjoy a refrige box in the room.

              The location is perfect of those wanting to walk to all major city centre sites.Service was excellent throughout the whole stay.

              Gym equipment was literally in the hall way of the spa! The little touches were missing from a hotel of this size. A separate work space with privacy would be good, hotel computer was again in a walkway to the spa. No cushions for back support on sofa's.

              Central - close to all amenities, transportation and attractions.

              Breakfast should be included in price.

              Location, incredible breakfeast, view from some rooms on the place and for very few on Akropolis, indoor swimming pool, very kind and efficent staff

              You have the choice between rooms with a super view on the city but very noisy (insulation from street noise is very bad) and dark rooms but quiet. No outdoor swimming pool contrary to the pictures given on the web site

              The staff was wonderful, profesionnal, very friendly and discrete: thanks to all of them for making us feel welcome and at home. We were upgraded to a suite with view to Syndagma and balcony, and although the traffic is very noisy, the room was beautiful and quiet with the windows closed. Beds very comfy, we slept like roses. Airco perfect. Bathroom perfectly equipped. MP3-, cd- and radioplayer were a good idea. Acces the Spa pool was free and we liked it a lot. Also happy we had free Wifi acces. Location is just the best, never even needed public transport for our visits. Breakfast and dining room view is wonderful, and breakfast itself is top notch.

              Dined in the hotel restaurant one evening and thought the food a bit disappointing, especially as it's pricey. On the contrary, the view to the Acropolis by night was well worth it!

              Excellent location, very friendly staff, nice view from hotel restaurant to Acropolis!

              Rooms that look to square are a bit noisy.
