Not a real 5 stars hotel

Posted Jun 27, 2016 on Hotels
The only highlight was the location. You can see the city from there but also there is a mountain above that has the same view. For the value of the money not a 5 star hotel. We stayed in the newer wing of the hotel but the room didn't look as in the pictures, Very small and didn't have basic toiletries for a 5 star hotel: Shower Cap, Ear Cotton, Sewing Kit. You don't expect this from a 5 star hotel!! All 5 star hotels even 3 star hotels give you at least 1 complimentary water specially in places where you can't drink from the tap. Here no, you pay Euro 3.5 for 1 bottle of water!!

Highly Recommended!

Posted May 12, 2016 on Hotels
We booked whilst in Athens on hotels.com deal of the day. Considering the price we paid this was an absolute bargain. The hotel is very well appointed, clean, in good condition offers compact but very comfortable rooms. the location is a little over 1km from the city centre. An easy down hill walk into town, not quite so easy uphill on the way back but it works off all those cheese pies! The views of the Acropolis and Parthenon as amazing. The spa is very tranquil and offers a full range of services. The roof top pool and bar are a little small but still very well presented. The staff to an individual were extremely friendly and helpful. Some people might take the language barrier that exists with a few members of the team to be unfriendly, but that was certainly not our experience. We did take the buffet breakfast each morning which was of good quality and a wide enough choice to mean there was something for every taste.

Spektakulær utsikt over Athen og Acropolis

Posted May 10, 2016 on Hotels
Hotellet er litt slitt, men det veies opp for ved andre momenter på hotellet. Velg hotelrom med utsikt mot Acropolis, det gir en helt fantastisk panoramautsikt mot byen og Acropolis, utsikten er verdt hver krone. Rommet hadde egen balkong som passet godt til soling og avslapping. Bra med basseng på taket, nok en gang nydelig utsikt over Athen. Gratis Wifi som faktisk fungerte meget bra med høy hastighet. Meget gode og komfortable senger! Sentralt med 5 min gang til sentrum/parliamentet hvor det også er t-bane. Alt i alt et meget bra opphold og anbefales på det varmeste!

Lovely View, Good Location

Posted Apr 13, 2016
Pros: Staff, View
Cons: Pool, Air conditioning in April
Location: Explore Athens and Lykavittos hill which is outside of the Hotel
April visit to Greece great time to go. Hotel was good and my overall rating would have been higher if the pool was open and the air-conditioning switched on. We had great weather above average for April and found the hotel room very hot as we did not want a draft from the window while asleep and the hotel does not turn the air-conditioning on yet. It is probably standard practice to have the pool closed at this time of year though I would have swam. It was a week stay and later in the week the room became more comfortable. The staff were lovely and breakfast has a great view though not worth the price for more than one day if you do not have it included with your room deal. I will probably try a different Hotel on my next visit.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your observations. We are glad to know that you enjoyed our wonderful view and marvellous location. Please may we assure you that we take the greatest care to ensure our valued guest’s comfort. The pool is open in the summer as the weather in Athens can be changeable. The hotel features a central climate control system with in-room thermostats to fine-tune the temperature. Our breakfast buffet has a huge range of items selected by our chef with an emphasis on the produce from Greece. We are happy to serve a la carte items for our guests who wish a smaller meal. Quality and value are a priority at the St George Lycabettus Hotel. We hope you will choose to stay with us again in the future; this summer our new roof terrace promises the best views in the city! Kindest regards, The Management Team

Hotel on a hill.

Posted Apr 10, 2016
Pros: The view and the restaurant.
Cons: The beds (rubber mattress cover was very uncomfortable) and the A/C.
Location: It's in the old part of the city on a hill. There are many shops, cafes and restaurants in the area.
Hotel had great views. Rooms were a little small and the beds not Marriott standard but okay. The A/C didn't work so we slept with the balcony door open. Good thing it was only April.

Very poor service I'm not amused

Posted Apr 6, 2016 on Hotels
I checked in & had 2 girls visit. The front desk called me to ask where my friends sleeping over which i thought was very Unappropriate, front desk also told me that I will have to book an additional room. On top of that there wasn't anywhere on their site that that the pool would Be closed and we couldn't take pictures of the views. Late night security was sent to my room to see if I had guests visiting. The room had no working air and was told open door and get breeze Frm Balcony. I'm not impressed.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Please may we assure you that we take guest safety and comfort most seriously. To this end, non-residents are requested to liase with reception. Our team is responsible for your safely and well-being. Our reception team was alerted to non-resident visitors with suitcases; it is a health and safety procedure to have accurate occupancy information. The late night call by our team was due to the unacceptable noise level from your room which was causing a disturbance to other guests. Our breakfast team noted four guests for breakfast, and requested payment because the breakfast was not included in the price of the room for the extra persons. The roof top pool is open in the summer months - this is stated on our website and in brochures etc. The hotel features central climate control with in room thermostats. Every care is taken to ensure your comfort, and it is always our pleasure to address any issue which may arise in a courteous manner; our dedicated team deserves similar treatment. Kindest regards, The Management Team
