This hotel was sweet – amenities, service and quality! Loved the pool area – on the rooftop, bar alongside, a small jacuzzi, all with great a view of the Acropolis. Right inside there is a spa area with a steam room and sauna, and you can even order up a massage for an extra charge. The room was luxurious and comfortable – in a fresh, modern style. There were robes waiting for us, a stocked fridge, and a safe as well. Breakfast is optional, and they gave us a choice of a basic continental or a full ‘American’ breakfast buffet start to our day. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous, obviously wanting to make our experience here a good one. I guess it’s not the best part of the city, but you’re isolated from it in the hotel, and you’re close to most of what you want to see.

They have a very impressive luxury roof top massage center including sauna and steam room with beautiful and tasteful art work on the walls. I’m even more impressed by the outdoor pool, jacuzzi and restaurant offering a menu of international cuisine and also an amazing side view of the Acropolis. A binocular on tripod setup by the pool makes it fun also! The double room has no balcony and I’m not bothered by it because the view is of a very busy intersection. The bed was firm and back-supportive and the bathroom was just fabulous with glass shower and very subtle and attractive mirror lighting. The hotel had fantastic fish-themed large sculptures in different spots but no particular overall ‘designer’ look. The neighborhood is gritty and urban but being a minute’s walk from the Omonia station Metro made it convenient to travel to other hotspots.

A really great hotel in a really bad neighborhood!
I am Greek and already know that Omonia Sq is the worst area in Athens.
Let me be more specific 28th October St is the worst street in the city and the unfortunate place that this hotel is located.
Melia is a wonderful chain but I would stay elsewhere because of the things you would see right outside the main door of this hotel.
Sorry to say its bad even during the day.
Its sad because the hotel rooms are nice and the restaurants are ok.

Ok, so neighbourhood first: sleazy but central and very well connected for transport. But then you could't have the same thing in New York, London, Paris or anywhere. Really friendly and helpful front desk team - though felt for them as they're reception, check in / out and concierge rolled into one. Rooms are comfortable, though floors were filthy. Nice bathroom. Excellent roof terrace with a nice pool and view of the Acropolis. Felt like good value,
