Overall a very good 4 star hotel located within 10 minutes taxi ride to the major tourist sites. The restaurant on the 9th floor was exceptionally good and I would visit the hotel just for that when i am next in Greece. Rooms were adequate. Staff accommodating Happy to recommend to others. Only negative - wish they left a bottle of water in the fridge for when we arrived, but this is a very minor thing.

We enjoyed a very nice stay at the Stanley. The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a view of the Acropolis. The complimentary beer & wine were a nice touch. Our buffet breakfast with a pleasing variety of choices was included. The rooftop pool, restaurant and bar area is lovely and again, a pleasing view of the Acropolis. The location is very convenient to the Metaxourghio Metro station and we used it every day of our stay. Unfortunately the hotel is located at the edge of a questionable part of town and we saw people sleeping rough in Karaiskaki Square and it was not a comfortable area to explore on foot. The food at the restaurant was good, not great and some of the wait staff need lessons in proper mask wearing. The housekeeping staff were efficient but I do wish they had reliably replaced the tea that was used and made sure the glasses were very clean. Overall a very good stay.
