First Day Shopping and Touring

We arrived in Athens and had an authentic Greek meal at Zorba's restaurant. We drove by the site of the 2004 Olympics. Our hotel Divani Palace was very close to the Acropolis. The Parthenon was beautifully illuminated at night. I walked with my roommate Virginia Davis to the Plaka for jewelry shopping.

Finally arrive Athens about 2PM. Immigration and customs was a breeze - walked right through, with minimal wait at both queues.

Drive was waiting. He had a van for 8 for just the 2 of us. Checked in by around 3PM.

First evening, we (Pa & Mei) took a walk to the entrance of Acropolis which was just up the road. Walked round to …

After a quick breakfast at the hotel restaurant, we met our tour guide, Joanna, at the reception. She spoke perfect English which made it easy for both parties during the tour. Our driver from yesterday, Akki, was again driving us around today. We drove through weekend traffic and headed towards our first stop – old Olympic stadium. It was …

The Story:

We were booked on Lufthansa flights from SFO, with a stopover at Munich, to Athens. Friday went way too fast and before we knew we were in the Super Shuttle headed to the airport. A few weeks back there was so much chaos with the EU flights due to the Icelandic volcano ash. We felt very fortunate that the ash was no more a …

It was a right bunfight getting onto the Athens bus from Patras.....quite chaotic. Maybe it's because the railways have become unreliable that there were so many waiting to get on board the buses. Me managed to get on though without too much fuss. We were pretty fagged and shagged from the ferry trip...so the bus trip allowed us to nod off and dribble over the poor fellow passenger who was sitting next us.

That said though, between the naps there was ...

    Divani 4-Day Stay

    Right at the foot of the Acropolis - location couldn't be any better. Room fairly good size, just the colours a bit dated. No complaints at the promo (4 for 3) rate of average 110 Euro per day.


    Literally a 5 min. walk to Acropolis entrance. Likewise 5 min. walk to nearest street Makrigianni, where there is a whole row of eating places, very reasonably priced - touristy but still good quality and good ambience.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Divani Acropolis Palace Hotel Athens

    3 blocks from acropolis--great location

    from

    We just returned from Greece, and stayed 4 nights at the Divani Acropolis. I found the location to be ideal--very close to acropolis, plaka, and temple of zeus/hadrian's arch. The service was pleasant, if occasionally a little brusque. The rooms were fine, the best part is the acropolis view from the balcony. I would definitely stay here again.

    Best Part of this hotel was the bartender, Fotis

    from

    We were very disappointed with the customer service at this hotel. We found the front desk staff rude, at times. One morning, while on our way out for a tour, I handed one of the staff at the front desk a stamped post card and asked, "Would you mind mailing this for me?" She refused to take the post card and told me the mail box was around the corner to the right.

    Close to Acropolis, but average hotel

    from

    The main thing going for the Divani Palace Acropolis is its proximity to the Acropolis, which is only a 5-10 minute walk away. The hotel is neat and modern, but the rooms seemed small and dark. The "Acropolis View" is a misnomer. To see the Acropolis from any room (the hotel is situated sideways to the Acropolis view) one has to stand on a tiny balcony and look to the side.

    The immediate neighborhood is mainly commercial/residential and not that interesting. Service was okay, and the buffet breakfast was good.

    Great Spot

    from

    The location of this hotel was perfect for getting around. There are wonderful shops all around. If you stay at this hotel make sure you go see George. If you walk out of the hotel and turn right and go down the hill to the second block, turn to your right you will see a shoe store and in the corner a liquor shop. Tell George that Miami(Mamie) and Bet (beth) sent you. He will take you in and feed you like you were his own. Trust me!!!

    The mattresses in this hotel are hard as rocks, but other than that it is a great place to stay.

    Excellent Location!

    from

    Short uphill hike to the Parthenon. 10 minutes walk to Plaka (shopping!). Close to 2 subway stations. Save some bucks and buy your water, food & snacks at the grocery store across the street. Many restaurants & food places around the hotel as well. Clean, comfortable rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast!

    Avoid the Hotel Restaurant

    from

    The Divani Palace Acropolis Hotel has a good location, near the Acropolis and Plaka, but watch out for the buffet dinner scam. It works like this: you check into your room, and there's a flyer on the table that says "free bottle of wine with your dinner in our rooftop restaurant." So you go to the rooftop restaurant, sit down, get your wine, and ask for the menu. But there is no menu: your only option is the buffet. So you inquire, "How much is the buffet?" The answer is a mind-boggling 45 euros per person!

    Great Location

    from

    Not overly fancy, but we did get the room on the side of the hotel that we requested both times we stayed there (one with an Acropolis view). The room was very clean and perfectly located near the Acropolis, Plaka, metro, temple of Zeus. Easy walking to Ermou street for wonderful shopping. We would definately consider this hotel again when returning to Athens!

    Excellent Location!

    from

    My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Divani Acropolis Palace in June 2004. Overall the hotel is nice. Although when requesting your room, try to get one that's not near the elevators or near the rooftop restaurant, otherwise you won't get any sleep. We were beside the elevators and these are the noisiest elevators I've ever heard. We ended up being moved. Then they moved us to a room right underneath the rooftop restaurant and we had to be moved again because evertime someone gets up from their table, you can hear their chair move. It's worth it to stay at this hotel just because of its location. It's just about a block from the base of the Acropolis, and a 5-10 minute walk from the Plaka. We would stay here again just for the location.

    Nice place!

    from

    We stayed here at the tail end of our honeymoon and honestly didn't have high expectations after coming from Astra Apartments in Santorini (awesome place). We were pleasantly surprised with the whole place.

    Nice helpful staff, clean large rooms, great location to Acropolis and Plaka (walking distance to most everything). We had a great view of the Acropolis from our balcony, and at night, it really was an impressive sight.

    It does seem like they do quite a bit of tour business (saw lots of tour buses coming and going), but it didn't detract away from the overall experience at the hotel.

    They also were kind enough to bring us a complimentary fruit basket and bottle of wine to our room since it was our honeymoon!! Very nice touch. Highly recommended.

    Great hotel clost to everything

    from

    We stayed at the Divani Palace in late May 2003 at the recommendation of a Greek travel agent. The room was clean, large and comfortable (including the bathroom) with a nice view of the Acropolis from the balcony. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooftop restaurant was OK, but a little pricey. A very short walk to the Acropolis and the Plaka. The area seemed very safe and friendly. Overall, we really liked the Divani Palace and would definitely stay there again.
