Bar and top bar staff poor, especially Chinese / Asian girl. Would be good if hotel gave her some training. Male staff more keen to assist. Rooms a decent size, bathrooms okay. Need to sort out the WiFi and always seem to be doing work, yet nothing changes.

This is a dated old style hotel which is located in the down town area. I would say that the hotel is not 4 star material but the rooms are clean and large. It also has a nice view of the city from the rooms. We found lots of families staying here. The breakfast is large and has lots of options. Its a bit chaotic so do go early to grab a good place if possible. Wifi is provided only in the reception area. The location is very good and quite near the Syntagma Square.

Pros - spacious rooms with bathtub & English speaking news channels. Close to Metro stop. Good view from upper floors. Cons - packed out, breakfast buffet was mediocre - very limited fresh fruit (though lots of cakes) & too many people to fit in the dining area.

The hotel is situated near a metro station(ambelokipoi). From there you can reach the hotel by bus(14, 18, 19 they arrive opposite the hotel). Big hotel with 20 floors and very good staff and excellent service. Easy access to centre. Quality breakfast. Would stay again for sure.

Caters to elementary school trips. So you have to compromise for extra noise long lines at breakfast and not finding a cup or a spoon. Try to avoid the last month of the school year Staff is very friendly and prices are good.

It definitely is a hotel for large groups and I wouldn't have booked it if I wasn't with a large group (80p). In general the hotel needs redecoration and is maybe max 3 stars value, not 4. Beds are very small 1,60m is a double bed. Plus: * location is ok, not in the city center however quite central for the subway. This is a 10 minute walk but ok for us. Safe area. * nice personell, we had a lot of noise during the night of screaming youth over the hallway which lasted and lasted. We called th... Read more

attended a meeting here and the hotel was clean and friendly. My room was not the most modern but clean and comfortable and the rest of the hotel was very nice with friendly staff and a reasonable buffet breakfast. the only downside was expensive in room wifi but it is free in the lobby, or i used mobile data anyway. The location was a good are for eating out with shops, bars and cafes and was a nice area with a taxi, bus or metro into the centre in a short time.

Stayed for one night at the end of my holiday. The hotel was smart, reception was helpful and my room was clean and comfortable. Easy access to the metro for the city centre and a Starbucks and TGI Friday nearby if you have had "taverna burnout" as we had. Used the pool which was lovely with the biggest towels I've ever seen, but unfortunately there was nobody overseeing the pool when we arrived, so we helped ourselves to two towels and just settled down.

Room was clean and very comfortable, A/C very good. Roof garden/pool excellent if you can stand the smoking. The inside pool garden areas also smoky and even the hotel manager violated the "indoor no-smoking" law. When I admonished him for smoking in an internal area he did put out his cigarette but did say that all the windows were open. However, all the participants on his table were smoking and the ashtrays were full of cigarette buts--inexcusable. Breakfast OK but same every day but fruit wa... Read more

Recently stayed just for one night but was very impressed. The hotel is on a busy main street but our room was on 19th floor so no road noise etc. Check in was quick and smooth. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was lovely very large and nice bathroom. The pool area on the roof is lovely but there were no sun beds free which was a shame.

This is a good hotel but their main problem is that most of the people visit the hotel for business and their main issue is that you have to pay the wifi. free only in the lobby. Only third world countries charge the wifi. Some necessary changes need to be done in the rooms.

This obviously used to be a grand hotel. But it is slowly fading as it ages. Details like the soaps have been cost reduced. The towels are now scratchy. The staff are helpful and friendly. As long as that stays true, it ain't a bad place to stay It also had a lot of school trips when I stayed here The roof top pool and bar are great.

The rooms are a decent size, clean, working AC and TV. Staff are nice and helpful. I found the prices of room service a bit steep (around 18eur for a salad!). It's a nice hotel to stay at for a few days, but I wouldn't spend 10 days there. Personally I would not go back to that hotel because I find it outrage that the hotel charges for internet in the rooms.

Decent size for the rooms but wifi not included. They charge ?12 for the service in the rooms each day. Couple of problems with the service, they forgot to put back a pillow and bathroom floor mat and we arrived really late at night so no pillow and mat. The following day after the cleaning room service they again forgot to put the pillow and mat so we went to reception twice until someone brought the missing items! Staff was really friendly ...

In a time when low cost airlines are giving free Wi-Fi connection hotel President charges 12? per 24hrs connection in the room. A supposed 4 star hotel should offer it for free. It's not about the money, it's the fact. It's actually cheaper to turn on data roaming. Just ridiculous. Common spaces are nice but rooms feel old and ther is no ventilation so they smell funny. Breakfast pretty basic. It's more like a 3 star place.

They only have WiFi in the reception area and its not that good either. Plugs are a bit far so if you have to use the charger its not practical. Pool closes way to early, this being summer and the sun setting late they should keep it open a bit longer.
