This is generally a fantastic hotel with outstanding and incredibly friendly service, every amenity you could possibly need is within the establishment – plus the best breakfast I have eaten in Europe this decade.
The hotel restaurant was excellent with superb views and the hotel location couldn’t be better for visiting the city of Athens.
The only slight downsides were there were no bathrobes; we had to ask for additional towels as only two were provided and the telephone in the room didn’t work properly.
A rooftop pool would be an additional bonus to make this top notch hotel even better (unless you are fortunate enough to benefit from the one that apparently belongs to the rooftop suite).
