    Superb

    The rooms with the balcony view of the Acropolis are fantastic. Our family will always remember our stay in Rooms 507 and 508. The rooftop restaurant has an amazing and romantic view of the Acropolis, but is very pricey compared to nearby rooftop tavernas. I was on business, and for me the hotel Divani Palace Acropolis was not business friendly, the wifi did not work, they wanted me to buy an international card for 10 euro, the little "business center" was too small and too crowded and you must pay a lot to print documents. I wound up going to a nearby wifi coffee shop where everything was free and the proprieter let me use his printer for free. Likewise the 20 euro breakfasts each! Are extortionate, so my family and I went out for breakfast to a number of different local places which were charming and all four of us had breakfast and endless coffee for 20 euro total all four of us. The Staff was very friendly and helpful concerning touring the city.

    See above - not business traveller friendly - wifi not working even though it was in all the nearby coffeeshops and tavernas in the bneighborhood. Also no irons or ironing boards provided for love or money, which made it difficult to get presentable for my business calls each morning - I was pressured to use the housekeeping laundry service for 50 euro per suit and 25 euro per shirt. Fortunately my resourceful wife was with me and she ran up to kat / Kiffissias on the Metro and bought us a travel iron for 20 euro and we ironed on a towel on the room's desk. Please note the rooms are great - beds are comfortable - the desk was very large so I could spread out materials to review and prepare for meetings - but I had to go outside to The Jukebox coffeshop/taverna to type out or print out documents and email same to clients..

    it was not realy what i ecpected from i 5 star hotel

    when they mention that its possible to add a bed in a room then they should be ready for it and could organise

    Location was great, the room was very nice, with a balcony.

    The roof deck was closed, one of the biggest selling points on the hotel. Also, no transportation service available to/from airport.

    Superb

    + Perfect location close to subway and lots of restaurants and other amenities in the neighbourhood. + Really service-minded staff. Not something to take for granted when in Greece. - For being a 5-star hotel the breakfast was on the poor side. One expexts to get fresh juices at this standard.

    For being a 5-star hotel the breakfast was on the poor side. One could expect freshly squeezed juices instead of these watery fruity lemonades that were served. The bed pillows were anything but comfortable

    Superb

    The rooftop restaurant with the view of the Acropolis was spectacular. The food was high quality and the presentation was excellent. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The beds in the rooms were extremely comfortable. The water pressure in the bathroom was such a relief, as so many accomodations in Greece (and Europe) are "old style". The pool area was lovely and the location was central to sites, restaurants and transportation.

    It is situated very close to the Acropolis. The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms are very nicely finished, Hans Grohe fixtures in the bath, flat screen TVs, nice wood detailing on the closets and desk/dressers. There's even a pool. The views from the rooftop bar are spectacular.

    The only thing we wanted that wasn't on offer was free WiFi. Also, the location is very close to the Acropolis and the new Acropolis Museum, but restaurant choices in the immediate area are limited. Plaka would be a more preferable neighborhood, but also more expensive. As it is, Plaka is a short hike uphill. The toiletries were generic and no conditioner or body lotion was offered, which is surprising from a chain that boasts spas in its other locations. Bring your own. The King-sized bed was 2 twins pushed together, which we ran into elsewhere in Greece.

    The hotel is extremely outdated. The hotel is not maintained. In our first hotel room, the ac did not work, the shower went from hot to cold, the tub was falling apart In out second room, the shower went from hot to cold and our toilet leaked. No iron in the room. The carpet was stained. The breakfast was poor quality. The light bulbs in the breakfast area were out and no one seemed to care. The orange juice was terrible, like a power mix. The eggs were disgusting, the ceral was poured into big bowls and set out for hours to get stale. The pool was very cold and not appropriate for children. For some reason the bar tender told my husband that our 2 year old daughter was making too much noise at the pool when she was just laughing and having fun. No one was around and no one complained. The hotel could not even give us change for 200 euros. I would never ever go back to this hotel and I would never recommend it to anyone. I suggest that you take this hotel off of your web site.

    Great location being very close to the Acropolis. Easy walking to cafes, restaurants and shops. The metro stop at Acropolis is less than a 5 minute walk away. The excellent Strofi restaurant is 5 minutes walk away.

    Very good

    Location, location, location! It was ideal for taking in all the sights around the Acropolis.

    Promoted that they had free Wi-Fi, but that only is in the lobby of the hotel. No internet or Wi-Fi available in the rooms. I overheard several other hotel guests complaining that they were charged extra for internet services, but was never told. Rooms are very old and bathrooms in poor condition. I.E. Mold in the tub. Housekeeping did the best they could cleaning the rooms, but the bathroom looked filthy due to the age/condition of it. King size bed was actually 2 twin beds pushed together. Not comfortable at all. I would recommend squeezing into a queen, as it would have been more comfortable.

    It is an easy 5 minute walk from the Acropolis and the Acropolis Archeology Museum. Also a pleasant stroll away from interesting shops and restaurants at Plaka and a short subway ride to the Changing of the Guard at the Parliament. We were upgraded on arrival from a Deluxe Double to anExecutive Suite. Well appointed in every respect, free WiFi and excellent breakfasts. We have already recommended the Divani Palace Hotel enthusiastically to friends and two of our family members will be staying there this month. We would return without hesitation. Staff members were invariably polite, helpful and well informed.

    No complaints whatsoever.
