Luxury Hotel with convenient shuttle bus.

Pros: Shuttle bus. Clean.
Cons: Extra charges.
Location: We used the Hotel shuttle to get to the centre of Athens and walked to all the tourist sites from there.
We had to join their club to avoid paying 6 Euros per day to have internet. There were extra costs for almost everything except the shuttle and breathing the air. There are eateries nearby which are quite satisfactory and much cheaper although the area is a little run down and seedy. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Nice!

Nice! Value for money. Breakfast at 34€ per person a bit expensive. Lots of space in our room And our own lounge area! Parking around hotel easy to find a spot. Gym was well equiped and clean. Roof bar has great views of the Parthenon, especially at night! Six lifts to your room, so very little waiting time in foyer.
