A quality hotel but not very close to Acropolis”

Roof top pool and bar, and jacuzzi in the bedroom

the hotel melia athens is a luxury hotel, with excellent service and facilities. the bedroom was spacious and the bed extremely comfortable. the room had all the facilities you would exert from a quality hotel, including a huge bathtub with jacuzzi, which i found to be most enjoyable and relaxing after a day walking around athens in the heat. the only downside is the location, which is near omonia square. the location is fairly central, within about 15 minutes walking distance of the acropolis, however omonia is not the nicest of locations in athens. also, the view of the acropolis from the rooftop bar is further away than it appeared when i booked online. however, all in all i had a very pleasant stay at this hotel, and it was extremely good value for money, given the high quality of the hotel and its facilities.

Value for money, Good location, nice rooms

I've read reviews on people saying safety is an issue due to the location of the hotel, but I definitely do not find it dangerous. I travel with my female friend, so it was just the both of us. (both female, small built). And the hotel is 5 mins walk to Omonia station & is 10 mins walk to Athens National Library. Thus it is extremely convenient. The open rooftop skybar & swimming pool has great view of Acropolis & Mt. Lycabettus (Likavitos). The hotel rooms are clean & cosy. I've stayed there for 3 nights on the 12, 15 & 18 Oct 2013. The hotel staffs are friendly especially the one at the open rooftop skybar. Receptionist help us call for cab when we needed and advice us on our enquiries. Even before my trip I've lots of enquiries thus I emailed Melia Athens for help. They replied all of my emails promptly and are very kind & polite despite the many questions I had. The only thing I didn't like was that hotel do not provide complimentary water bottles. Will recommend this hotel as it is affordable (app. 160SGD), value for money, convenient, nice room, comfortable bed, jacuzzi bathtub, friendly staffs.

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Melia Athens Hotel and wish we had stayed for more nights! We were given a free upgrade to a larger room, which was quite spacious, with a comfy bed, jacuzzi tub & rain shower. The hotel staff was quite helpful and gave us lots of information about sights in Athens. If we'd stayed longer we would have loved to try the spa!

rooftop pool/bar, great shower, good location

We had a nice stay at Melia Athens Hotel. We had to change our rooms due to the smell of smoke but the hotel was very accommodating. The showers were very nice with great back jets. The beds are comfy and relaxing. The pool bar at the top floor was amazing! It was very busy during our stay but great view of Acropolis and cooling off in the pool was much needed after a day of sightseeing.

Great hotel in great location”

Clean comfortable hotel with very helpful staff

we arrived early and were taken up to the beautiful roof terrace where we had coffee with barry who helped us with our sightseeing plans, pointed out sites close by and marked a map with our intended places to visit. the hotel is so easy to get to from the airport unlike other hotels in istanbul. the location is perfect for sightseeing as so many of the major sights are a short walk away. breakfast had a large variety with some changes each day and complimentary pastries and tea served at 5pm. while breakfast was served on the lowest level it is possible to take breakfast up to the roof terrace which was beautiful with the view of the marmara sea and all the shipping. lovely sitting there with a drink late in the afternoon and possible to have dinner there which we didn't do so can't comment on the dinners. room while not particularly big was very clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful. would definately return again.we needed to change our hotel for our last night in istanbul as our plans had changed and the melia was fully booked, they arranged the taxi and told us the expected fare and assured us we would not get ripped off by the driver as they are familiar with the drivers, something we were aware off is quite common in istanbul with taxi drivers so it was a relief to arrive at our other hotel without a hassle with a taxi driver over the fare. also provided a bottle of water each day as tap water is unsafe for drinking.

pool, central location, friendly staff, clean
some walk to the shopping district, no free internet in rooms

We had a long weekend in Athens and this hotel served us really well. Underground stations were really close and there were some bargain shops around. Also eating out is easy. The best feature of the hotel is its nice pool and sauna area on the roof. The staff is really friendly and they, e.g., turned on the sauna just for me when I asked. Rooms are clean and modern. Free internet is available only in the lobby and pool areas, unfortunately.

Good staff. Good Location ”

Kostas, the front office manager took very good care of us , He was gracious and helpful. The breakfast staff were efficient, professional and very nice, I took off 2 stars for the hamam which is a steam room and was not working well For our time there , but management made it up to us. The layout is a bit odd and the sauna a bit tight.The pool and rooftop deck are beautiful,(Nice long pool for length swimming ) but hours in the winter season (November ) a bit short, so not open for a morning swim before heading out or an evening swim after a long day out. Jacuzzi, cold , Sauna and gym open though. Overall a very positive and pleasant experience .Close to everything. Rooms lovely, a good size and cleaning staff very good as well. Thank you for a good home base in Athens for a week. Best Wishes, jamie from Canada

The Level Experience
Stayed 2 nights in August 2015

Hotel Melia Athens- ”

Room was finished to a high standard, comfortable bed and luxury whirlpool bath , Great views from roof restaurant with a lovely pool, Staff helpful and friendly.

We opted for "The Level Experience" this entailed a room with access to spa treatments, free bottles of water daily though we were only supplied with the ones that were there on check in- that said we didn't request a restock so no real quarrel with that. Generally we were really happy with this hotel the only negatives I can really bring up are 1. Despite having "The Level Experience" which was branded as an exclusive service booking, we had to pay €48 for the airport shuttle. This was just a taxi with his meter running. The meter price was €26 2. The food at the rooftop lounge was disappointing and we both left our mains pretty untouched. Despite telling the (very friendly) staff that the food was not very nice they made no offer to strike it off the bill. We actually wanted to go for food elsewhere after this sadly disappointing meal but it was a public holiday in Greece and Athens was like a ghost town so we went to bed hungry. Luckily the gigantic breakfast brought to our room as part of the Experience was of good quality. Overall- lovely hotel in an interesting part of town with great rooms and friendly staff. We were happy with our 2 night stay and would probably stay again.
