All in all, not a bad hotel, very attractive decor in the lobby and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the maid staff did an outstanding job! We were on the sixth floor and the balcony was great; however, the road can get a little noisy and the church bells are quite loud when they go off....

Not enough light in the bathroom, which was quite odd. I'm a guy so I don't wear makeup, but I do wear contact lenses. The lighting in the bathroom in front of the mirror was...

Very nice, modern hotel. The staff was warm and friendly with an excellent command of English. They let us check in very early (730 am). Only negative was the road noise on the east side. It was very bad all night long. This would be rooms 104 105, 106, & 107 for the first floor.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
