Acropolis View Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 17, 2007

Now this is more like it! ...A nice, big, clean, air-conditioned room with a small refrigerator, a giant bed, and a large spotless bathroom! This is the first place I've stayed in Greece where the shower could accommodate a regular-sized person instead of an elf. The shower also has a place to sit down and glass doors instead of a flimsy curtain. After all the hill-walking on the Greek Islands, I can't wait to give my feet a good, long soak. But first things first--I have to see the Acropolis.
I walk out onto the balcony humming to myself. The hotel is called "Acropolis View", but straining my neck I can't actually see the ruins from here, even though I'm fairly high up. Anyway, better get going...
The mustachioed hotel owner is high-strung and somewhat neurotic. He points me toward the Acropolis and I set off. And suddenly, unbelievably--I'm there. The entrance to Acropolis is within a ten-minute walk from the hotel's doorstep! Fantastic!
Later that night, after my historical walk and dinner with friends, I enjoy a coffee in the hotel's lobby while writing some last-minute postcards. It's hard to describe the decor--it all looks brand new but it has a very 1975 feel to it. The owner's daughter is slouching on a nearby sofa enjoying an American television show overdubbed in Greek while the owner himself works behind the desk answering calls. Sometimes they argue--she rolls her eyes at him and I try to not to chuckle at their banter. I accidentally spill my coffee on the glass table. The owner rushes over, wipes the mess up, and sets about making me a new one. "No problem, sir! No problems!"
On my early wake-up the next morning at 5:00 AM, I reluctantly get out of the amazing bed, pack my bags, and go down to the lobby. The owner's daughter has been expecting me. She's made breakfast early especially for me and says, "I have already called your taxi to the airport--they will be here in 20 minutes." "Thank you very much!" And I can't help but smiling at her poor tired eyes.
These are great people! This is a great hotel!

Directions: Filopapou--Right near the entrance to the Acropolis.
