This is you typical international business hotel with excellent conference facilities. We had a group of 200 people over 3 days for a conference and it went very well.

Though located a few kms out of the city centre in a downgraded neighbourhood (in the rear), this hotel is a city in itself, room was very spacious, clean, quiet with a fantastic view and service was up to usual 5* standards.

Stayed here this October for three nights. Handy location that is about 20 minute walk to Acropolis area. Good news is the tram is literally 100 m from front door and goes right to Syntagma station which is easy walk to everything and also metro line to Airport. Rooms are clean and staff are helpful.
