Very nice hotel, not crazy about the location
Posted Aug 10, 2016
Perhaps we just weren't prepared for what seems to be normal in Athens. The graffiti is everywhere...not just at this location. But we didn't know this when we first got there and the taxi driver was warning us that we weren't in a great neighbourhood and to be careful. The neighbourhood was dirty, full of graffiti and we were concerned at first.
Had to take taxi's everywhere and for the most part they were good but some of them will try to take advantage of tourists and take 'the long way around' so pay attention.
The Hotel itself however was very nice. Clean, modern, comfortable and the staff were all excellent, friendly and helpful. I'm sure they had a good giggle at us silly Canadians trying to figure out their elevator system. LOL
Overall, our stay was pretty good, even after the scary warnings from our taxi driver but if you want to be closer to the shopping and restaurants, you may want to stay someplace different.
