Don't stay here!
Posted Jun 12, 2015
I booked three nights at Rio Athens and would like to warn you that it doesn't have the amenities described. Well it does have, but they are just out of order. The room had a TV, but it didn't show any channel (the staff said it's a common problem for the hotel). The fridge didn't freeze. I mean it! It had room temperature inside and, again, the staff just didn't do anything despite my request.
To add to it, wifi stopped just before the threshold of my room so I had to go online in the lobby. By the way, the password is valid for only 3 hours then you need to login again with a different one (the give you several paper slips with the passwords at the reception)
I tried to request the room change but, of course, my request was denied. 'This is what you paid for', they said. But I didn't pay for TV and the fridge that I couldn't use! So don't repeat my mistake.
