        Super luxury in the heart of Athens”

        The view from the top floor retaurant is second to none.

        this is a top-class hotel with a great history and first rate service. the decor is wonderful and the rooms are very comfortable. one of the great selling points is the upstairs restaraut which has a simply fatastic view of the acropolis (and the rest of athens) that we never tired of. the staff were very attentive and it is no suprise that everyone of importance has stayed here over the years.my only critism (very small) is that starwood need to get a modern approach to internet conection. this is now a standard throughout the world and to have to pay for wi-fi is simply an annoyance that we could all do without. in every other respect a luxurious place to stay that will add to the pleasure of the athens experience.

        Fantastic hotel. Well above European standards, extremely clean with a great location. You must try out the breakfast buffet on the top floor balcony with amazing views of Athens (plus the great food). Stuff very attentive and polite. Nice pool area as well and the rooms are beautiful.

        We loved this hotel! Unfortunately, we could only stay one night and we wish we'd been able to stay several. We didn't have a chance to explore the area or take advantage of all the facilities s a result. Beautiful place, nice staff and extremely comfortable and roomy rooms.
