Great for arrival and departure
Posted Sep 23, 2016
Second time staying here during my departure from Athens (Aug 2015 and Sep 2016). This year, we stayed for 4 days and nights after being in western Greece for 3 months. Great experiences. Being close to the airport, we learned much more about what is available in the SPATA AREA: easy access to transportation, e.g., rental cars, taxis, railroad, metro, sunrises, sunsets, and good sampling of airport food. Note, it can get expensive to commute daily to the center of the city and be wary that if you arrive at some of the metro/train lines after 2330 you may have to get a taxi to complete your trip back to this hotel. None of these are the causes of this hotel, but I want to share our experiences. HOTEL: Superb staff -- reception, concierge, assistants, restaurant, housekeeper, spa, etc. Our initial check-in for this stay resulted in us needing a better view than just parked cars -- within 5 minutes, we had 3 people asking how best to help and a new room, plus keys and our luggage in place! Great spa for wife and I to enjoy a well-needed massage with oil. Solid "free" internet -- worked for our laptop and 4 mobile devices and helped me watch my house while it was being drowned in rain for 2 days. Wife and I concur, we will stay here again in 2017 upon our arrival and departure to Athens.
