Wonderful hotel, a short walk to the Plaka. We had dinner on the rooftop resturant with sunset views and than full lighting of the Acropolis. The food and service was excellent and with the view it made for a very memorable stay in Athens.

Pretends to be a World Class Hotel

By: Benji

Reviewed on: 23 Apr 2017

The Hotel, while elegant, is tired. The service is quite good, and the roof terrace is by far the best part (especially for breakfast overlooking the Acropolis). Rooms are small, even for European standards. We had a Deluxe Suite, so one wonders what a standard room is like. Noise from parties permeates all the way down to the fifth floor rooms, even those like ours which face into the courtyard. the GB, wants to be considered Luxury, but does not uphold the same standards that a Four Seasons, or George V offers.

This hotel was beautiful and in an excellent and very central location. Loved the rooftop restaurant. Thought the hotel room was a bit small for the price but I think for Athens it was one if not the top hotel.
