Highly Recommended – Repeaters Love it!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 18, 2015

I have known the hotel for years when I used to come with my students who were having their English Exams some years back. I have even attended seminars and lectures held at the Europa and Ouranos halls. A few days back I was here again on a short stay with my husband.

LOCATION: Right in the heart of the Historical and Commercial Centre of Athens, between Syntagma & Omonia. Located on Panepistimiou Avenue it is surrounded by the most significant historical and cultural monuments like the Acropolis and the Archaelogical Museum, the University of Athens, the National Library and the Parliament, as well as the modern commercial shops and the city malls. In all, it offers a wide variety of sightseeing and entertainment choices due to its unique location and of course with an easy access to the airport, port and train stations.

CHECK-IN / SERVICE: It did not last more than 7 minutes even though the reception staff were busy that time, due to a group arrival and several others who were checking-out. I simply had to fill up a form and sign it since it was my first visit. They seem to know well how to handle with punctuality, this stressful post when the phone is ringing for information and guests show up to check-in. They are extremely friendly making check-in smooth. Housekeeping was also punctual and discreet.

AMBIENCE: I was really impressed the moment I stepped in, but I guess all visitors feel the same. The ground floor, by the Reception area is covered with ‘Pentelikon’ marble and mosaics, the Dome & the popular “La Brasserie” give a feeling of luxury found in 5* hotels.

MEETINGS & CONFERENCE: The hotel prides for its Conference Centers, the Europa and Ouranos Halls which are the unique venue for business, scientific and social events. In fact this is one of the reasons we came here since my husband had to attend a conference meeting.

WI FI: It is complimentary on all common areas but not in the rooms. An hour’s cost is €4.50, premium connection for the same time is €5.50. For a whole day €12.00, premium €14.00, for 3 days €26.00, premium €29.00 and for a week the cost comes to €46.00, premium €49.00.

SUITE: Our suite # 920, was spacious and functional, with nice inviting colors. I am sure it was one of those that recently had been refurbished. The paintings on the walls and style matched well with the character of the suite and created a cosy and warm atmosphere. The double glazed windows opened to a narrow balcony with an incredible view of the Acropolis.
When night falls and lights go on and the Acropolis is lighted little by little, the view becomes breathtaking and all you wish is a glass of wine and have the time to sit by the balcony and simply stare at this stunning masterpiece that looks like a piece of art in gold. There was plenty of storage space and a safe deposit box with a personal security password and a fully stocked mini bar.

Instead of the usual coffee/tea facilities there was just a kettle and nothing else, but when I called housekeeping I was brought all the rest shortly afterwards.

BATHROOM: The marbled bathroom was roomy with a bathtub, a huge mirror and a complete set of toiletries, and plenty of fresh towels. Bathrobes and slippers are provided as well as a hairdryer.

BREAKFAST: The variety was ample. I appreciated the double Greek coffee which I had to ask for and I had it in minutes, as well as the fresh orange juice…perhaps not totally fresh but 85% seemed to be fresh anyway. There was tomato and apple juice as well. Plenty of cakes and pies, dry and fresh fruit, marmalades and jams, fried eggs and omelets ….the buffet had it all.

OLIVE GARDEN: I went out there out of curiosity and it is a marvel. The view of the Lycabettus hill and the Acropolis beneath starlight Attica’s sky, is breathtaking. I can’t say that I experienced the cuisine of the restaurant, but the restaurant has gained several distinctions in the past and is well known to Athenians.

LA BRASSERIE: The Café restaurant Piano Bar is set to be the City’s favorite all day meeting point, offering tempting varieties of gastronomic creations.


THE OVERALL IMPRESSION: The stay might have been short but it impressed me. Unique for long or short stays, for shopping, sight-seeing, and business trips. It is worth paying the few extra to get a room with a view on the upper floors. It is a steady value and repeaters notice how it gets better year after year.
Thanks for the great hospitality, keep the good work up guys …you are all great!

Nice hotel in a good location.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 29, 2010

Hotel Titania is a big 4 star hotel situated on "the right side" of Omonia square which is very nice as the other side of the square is getting more and more dodgy these years.
The rooms are nice and very functional and I always had very good experiences with the staff there the two times I have stayed at the Titania.
There is a roof top cafe with a fantastiv view over the Acropolis, but be ware that the prices at this cafe are not cheap.
Like most other 4 star hotel they have a business center where the internet connection is expensive and not very good, so bring your own laptop and go wifi or go to one of the many internet cafes in the area when you need to go online.
All in all this is a very nice place though and I will happily return there again.

Unique Quality: Good rooms and a good location.

Directions: About 100 meters from Omonia square towards Syntagma square in the same street as the university.

THE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE OLIVE GARDEN

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 7, 2010

It is not fair to comment on the Titania Hotel. It looked very reasonable in the late Athens sunshine as we approached it, from Omonia square (which it proudly boasts is nearby). As we negotiated Security guards on the doors to Macdonalds, Drunks, Hookers and Heroin addicts (all adding color to the mighty city, and obviously a fine square as the Titania is so proud to be near it) our dinner at the positively reviewed (by the management obviously) Olive garden on the roof of the Titania should have been welcoming. It was not. The view is the finest in AThens, one of the finest in the world and as such a premium is expected. The premium was outrageous. The prices, for mediochre to down right terrible food were 300% more than they should have been. The limited menu lacked any skill or execution in delivery. Starters arrived one at a time, over a period of 35 minutes. 40 minutes after they were ordered. The last to arrive was a cold soup. Presumably they were making the ice, or growing the tomatoes for it. Staff were poor in attendance, and delivery, dropping a large bowl at one stage, and kicking the remains beneath a nearby table, to which they then showed a couple. The main course was unimaginative, and stodgy. No deserts of coffee were offered with staff carefuly avoiding the eye of all those attempting to attract them. The bill finally arrived after this 4 hour marathon of an excuse for a dinner and we left, 250 Euro (for 4) lighter, never ever to return. I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in the world, some simply because I liked the view. Never will I return to this excuse for a restaurant, and I will do all I possibly can to ensure those whose opinions I respect, and who I regard as friends never make the mistake of wasting any time considering it. The view is astonishing, but most hotels in much nicer areas (Omonia is a truly nasty part of Athens in the evening) have similar or identical views. Eat at this restaurant at your own risk. If you are feeling wealthy, have no respect for money, and have an extremely low threshold for the quality of the food you are paying for, then feel free. If you are simply a fool with your time and money, then I am sure you will have a fine time. Please do read the other reviews here. The positive ones were, I am certain, written by the staff at this restaurant, and if not were written by people with little or no experience of good food and good dining and who are very easily impresed. The view is nice though. Pop up and take a picture then leave immediatly and quickly, back to theunderground in Omonia, stepping over those injecting and find your way to almost any other restaurant in Athens. Olive garden, SHAME on you. Taking advantage of people is one thing. We all expect an unreasonable mark up on the wine list in the great tradition of extending your margins, but this was beyond acceptable. The worst dining experience I have ever had. Eat here at your own risk. Awful. Dreadful. 0 (ZERO) out of 10

Directions: Follow the tube to Omonia. Ask any drug addict or prostitute. They will know where it is I imagine. Ignore them, get back on the tube, and go elsewhere.

Good Hotel in the Heart of Athens!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 15, 2004

While I was there on a school trip and put into a double with another student, the room was very nice for the week stay in the hotel. Considering the downtown location, there is very little outside noise giving a very comfortable sleep for the night. There were nice lounging areas on many floors for those talking outside the rooms. The hotel is in walking distance of many activities and great food.

Unique Quality: While this is not unique in a tourist city, the attendents spoke many languages at the front desk and always appeared willing to help. They will exchange travelers cheques at the front desk so there is no need to go to local banks, but expect the cashier to take a little off the top for the hotel, its to be expected. You will get better value for money from a bank, but the convience maybe everything to some.

The Olive Garden! a meeting place and more

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 24, 2003

We have stayed many times in this hotel with my husband, as it is right in the heart of everything so I can combine a very comfortable stay in Athens, with no loss of time for whatever I need to do:shopping, visiting family, visiting museums, going out to the theatres or to the historic cinemas of the centre, dining out...

Even if you think you can not afford staying there or dining there, it is an absolute must to visit the Olive Gaden on the 11th floor of this hotel at least for a drink:this is the highest building in the heart of the centre of Athens, with the best and closest view of both the Acropolis and the Lycabettus Hill.

You go to the terrace which is a great open space with a wonderful small garden of roses and surrounded with olive trees. The scent of the roses on a summer night is something I always recall.

The Olive Garden is a great meeting place at night, with easy listening music. You will see that there are many locals that choose to go out to this oasis,either to drink in good company or to enjoy the wonderful mediterranean food.

I can not leave Athens without going there, at least once, before I leave Greece. This can be a place to unwind when going for shopping or business; and it can be a romantic place for a dinner for two...

Unique Quality: The Olive Garden is the absolute must in the centre. Great service. And if you stay there, you can not beat this as a place to take your breakfast with the view of the Acropolis and beyond.

We last visited the hotel this October and the rception is unrecognisable: the hotel is going through refurbishing and it is lovely. Much more modern, and ready for the Olympic Games..

Directions: heart of Athens, close to Panepistimiou underground stop and to Omonoia underground stop.
