I can't begin to express how perfect my stay was at this property. It's been some time since my visit, but still wanted to go back and show my appreciation by expressing to the world how amazing they are.
First off, location! I took the train in from the airport and the stop was just next to the hotel making that quite convenient. The property is also walkable to the Acropolis. I took much of my time just walking around. They are also in walking distance to nightlife which was quite fun!
The property: BEAUTIFUL and luxurious. You experience that from the moment you walk into the hotel. The room was stunning and huge. It also had a long balcony facing out to Syntagma Square. I also took time to enjoy their spa which was quite lovely as well. Then there's the rooftop. WOW! What a beautiful view of the Acropolis, especially at night when it's lit up.
The rooftop restaurant: Service at the restaurant was spectacular. Wait staff was helpful with recommendations and was always attentive. The food and wine pairings were all lovely. I enjoyed every last bite of the dishes I experienced there. The bartender was also helpful in providing suggestions on where to head out for drinks in the area, and he made some wonderful cocktails as well.
Reception: walking into such an extravagant hotel, I expected to feel a bit out of place. I was wrong. They made me feel welcome and were incredibly friendly in each interaction. This was very much appreciated, especially since I was traveling alone and it felt reassuring that they really pay attention to their guests.
This was easily one of my top 5 favorite hotel stays and recommend this property to anyone visiting Athens.
