Superb Location - Steady Value!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 31, 2014

A timeless yet modern Luxury Hotel, member of the ultimate luxury collection of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts. We spent 3 memorable nights out here a few days back and this is how I comment on our stay.

LOCATION: Superb with one word! Its central location could not be better. The ideal location to combine business and pleasure stays. The prominent Syntagma Square puts all that the city has to offer at guests’ doorstep. Within walking distance from the historical part of Athens, Monastiraki, Plaka, Thiseio, the magnificent Acropolis and all the great landmarks. Handy for the tube, the bus and tram. Plaka is only a 5 minute walk, the beautiful National Gardens just across and right in the shopping and nightlife district.

CHECK-IN: It was quick, the service efficient and the staff extremely friendly. It is obvious that they are a bunch of professionals starting from the concierge, reception, waiters and management who are all exceptionally courteous and ready to meet the needs of their guests with attention to personalized service. I believe with such attention it can be one of the reasons for the many repeaters.

ROOM: Our spacious, bright and elegantly decorated room had a classy touch, fully equipped with modern amenities. Being on the 4th floor (#426) it overlooked the Greek Parliament and the tomb of the Unknown Soldier where we were able to watch the changing of the guard that takes place every hour. The double bed was comfortable enough and the overall interior had soft shades of green and brown creating a warm and welcoming ambiance.
Even though it was right on the main road where traffic is nonstop, yet I can say we had a very quiet deep sleep thanks to the double soundproof glazed windows. An internal door in the room provided excellent noise insulation that guaranteed a unique sense of serenity. The hotel was fully booked but up in the room it was so peaceful that we felt as if we were the only couple on the whole floor.

Have in mind that the room lacks complimentary coffee/tea facilities but there was a courtesy treat of a bottle of wine instead!
Balconies are with no chairs and seem decorative mostly, but the view from the room was great anyway.

BATHROOM: Marbled bathroom with a bath tub, spacious and well lit. Towels were changed daily and upon request were bright and fluffy with a smell of freshness. Bathrobes and slippers were also provided. The Branded (Apivita) toiletries included a vanity kit, a shampoo/shower gel and body cream are an extra opulence touch.

BREAKFAST: Taken at the Parliament Restaurant. A rich American buffet breakfast with extensive choice of delicious cold and hot dishes, natural juices, pastries, dessert, seasonal fruit and many more.
There is anything you can think of, with plenty of healthy options as well. There is enough to fill you up for hours, and the staff is very attentive. Quality ingredients of excellent taste. Do include breakfast when booking it pays for what you get.

RESTAURANT: The only thing I can comment about the restaurant is that the interior reflects elegance and luxury. Comfortable seating, velvet curtains, mirrors and lightings are all carefully chosen to provide a classy interior. However, we had both lunch and dinner outside so I cannot comment on the cuisine and the dining experience out here.

WIFI: Internet in the room is under a fee, however there is a computer with internet access and a printer available next to the reception but most of the time there was somebody working on it.

PLAZA LOUNGES: We had three times a coffee-break at this cozy café in the lobby. Coffee comes with homemade dessert and I urge you to try it. I am sure you will enjoy this extra touch of comfort out here. The service is impeccable, the relaxing music and natural lighting and inviting ambience will make you come back for more. You can have snacks and drinks out here either down at the lobby or on the upper floor of the Plaza lounge.

EATING OUT: In the round area and close to the hotel try ‘Tzitzikas kai Mermigas’ at Aischilou 26 Street. It is quite popular. You will find Greek traditional cuisine. Try some ‘meze’ dishes for a start.
The other option I can recommend for Vegatarians and not only, is the ‘Avocado’-Food for life restaurant which is at Nikis Street at Syntagma. I have been here several times and it never disappointed me.

IN ALL: Our overall experience proved the best choice for our short breakaway. This urban chic hotel is a haven for businessmen and the leisure traveler. It is a hotel with great potential and I highly recommend it for all the above reasons.
