    The Pool Garden area was good quality and had a view of teh Acropolis

    Location is a little down market area however it was close to Metro and other facilities

  • Single
    7.8

    The hotel was extremely comfortable, but I stayed at the time of riots and it was very scary, all the window panes in the front of the hotel smashed in and riot police out front, but the staff did not help in this situation they refused to answer questions, not a good location, I understand this is a one off at the present time but still uncomfortable area to be in. I usually stay in the Plaka and will go back there. The hotel is extremely comfortable and excellent amenties.

    I staff were not very personable if you did not speak Greek.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Our room was compact but had everything necessary, however the bathroom more than made up for this, it was huge and luxurious. They were renovating the roof terrace and pool during our stay (beginning of May) which was a pity as this would have made the hotel more appealing. Internet was charged in the room but free wifi was available in the lobby. The area was very convenient for Omonia station and a few stops to everything - very quick! but Omonia square is full of beggars etc. so don't linger there.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Not told before that rooftop bar and pool not available as being upgraded. Pillows too hard and no soft, feather ones available. No tea/ coffee facilities in room. Room should be a bit larger.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The facilities were great and staff exceptional

    For such an international hotel I would have expected wifi available in your room rather than having to go to recpetion for a password each session and then sit in the cafe/bar.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Service, luxury and the quiteness in the room all lead to an excellent stay. This is the second stay and we use again.

  • Single
    7.0

    All in all, I had a pleasant stay.

    The lock of the door to the balcony had a problem; they did not fix it, although I asked them to and they said they'll do it.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The room was very comfortable. The jacuzzi and jet shower were nice too though the jacuzzi looked a little dirty, in fact it was just scratched up and the shower head would not stay high. Staff was very helpful. Beware that to order anything in the hotel costs a fortune. Hotel pool was nice though I found the hours to be a bit short. Wifi in the rooms was expensive but it was free by the pool and in the lobby which was ok.

    The location. The first night we got lost trying to find food and accidentally went north. It was a bad neighborhood and I was thoroughly scared! I would avoid it at night though we did take the metro and walk home at night on other evenings but it was ok since we knew where we were. That being said the metro line is very convenient when it comes to getting to the sights. Don't stay around Omonia at night (nothing to do there anyway) and you will be fine.

  • Couple

    The fabulous pool. Comfortable beds. Big bedroom and friendly helpful staff.

  • Couple
    6.6

    The good location near the metro station was a plus .. although the neighbourhood did seem dangerous at times.

    The rooms arent isolated and you could clearly hear sounds coming out of the other rooms. A Problem occured on our first day where there was no hot water to take a shower and it took them 4 hours to fix it .

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The staff made our stay. Reception staff were very helpful and the skybar personnal were fantastic.The rooms were light and airy and very clean and the decor tastfuly done. The bathroom was really good and I especially loved the jacussi bath.I found the drinks a bit pricey in the skybar but I think it would be the same in any city hotel in peak season.

    The thing that let it down was the area the hotel was in which was not very nice to walk through at night. We saw drugs changing hands and quite a few spaced out characters and certainly didn't feel safe when walking to and from the hotel after being out for an evening meal and we were there for a concert which didn't finish till 1.30 and it was not nice having to return to the hotel at that time . I cannot fault the hotel and I suppose it is within walking distance of a metro link.

  • Couple
    9.6

    The Melia has a wonderful rooftop pool and bar, with great views to the Acropolis. The rooms are modern and comfortable and very clean. The hotel staff were very helpful giving us great restaurant suggestions and even booked our ferry tickets. Free wifi. Will be staying here again on out return through at the end of our trip.

    The hotel is easily walkable to the plaka and Acopolis, which is great. I am just glad I was with my boyfriend as some of the streets surrounding are a bit rough. We even saw some people injecting heroine only a block from the hotel. Keep to yourself and they keep to themselves but just be aware.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Spacious and clean room, polite and helpful personnel, free upgrade. Very good breakfast and amenities (pool, gym,sauna...)

    Wirelles internet not strong reception in the rooms and I should be free.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel was very busy but we were served very well.

    I didn't like the location because it was in a rather dangerous area. Had I known this, I may have changed my stay.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Very good room, clean and confortable (with jacuzzi). Breathtaking view form the roof garden (with swimming pool) and good restaurant. The best breakfast ever! Just 1.5 km to the acropolis (15 min walking).
