Well a quick 17 hr bus trip and we were meant to arrive in Athens. We still had Koshy travelling with us and just as well as she can always be relied upon to turn a bad situation into something we could laugh at. Quick my ****! It was without a doubt one of the worse bus rides of the trip. There were so many smelly Albanians who have obviously …
I think Greece is going to win the best host award for this trip, hands down!
Great drive, not much traffic and beat the tom tom prediction by 40 mins.
Booked a jnr suite in a 5* Hotel for 3 days as a treat (not that we have been slumming it, in fact quite the opposite, we are just spoilt)
Checked in and got upgraded to a …
Amazing day! We got our rooms when we arrived at the hotel (at 7 am) and then almost immediately headed out for a tour of Athens on the hop on hop off bus! The top deck of a double decker bus is heavenly in this incredible city in this fabulous weather. Then a little nap and off again to explore the acropolis even with my ankle... Wasn't too bad …
Greece is the Word www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjuzyPzRxeg We loaded onto a bus this morning. It is a nasty day. It is raining and cold. We really have had great weather the entire time that we were in Istanbul. We will be flying to Athens from Istanbul on Olympic Airlines. The bus dropped us off at the front of the airport. When we got there we had to …
... fairly sketchy part of town (last time I let someone else book hotels and flights without me checking it out), so we had to use the metro pretty much every day to see anything, or go anywhere to eat. This being said, we got really good at using the metro, which made the city feel more "ours". It was nice, getting to see different types of people, and seeing parts of the city (some of the metro was above ground). The food was absolutely incredible everywhere ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Classical Athens Imperial
I booked this using Orbitz, and I thought that the building was very nice. But let me tell you, the picture is much greater. But, the real thing is this. This hotel is located in front of a underground. From here you go anywhere. The pool upstairs is super. You can see the Acropolis, and me and my wife stayed in the night, watching it, and also having a drink, was like paradise. Also has a small but nice pool.
Stayed at the Imperial based on recommandations from fellow managers who worked the Olynpics in 2004.
my wife and i stayed there for 2 nights.
A friend and I travelled to Athens for the weekend in early October 2005. The rate we paid was extremely reasonable, having found a special rate for American Express cardholders on Orbitz. The hotel looms right in front of you as you exit the Metaxourghio Metro stop. The lobby was a decent size and floors polished. The staff at the front desk were more than accommodating, as we often had inquiries for them. They even allowed us to extend our checkout time by over 3 hours without charging us more. As our flight was not until the late evening, the hotel held our baggage for us until we were ready to head out to the airport.
Best hotel I have stayed in
An amazing hotel! Bedroom was excellent - fluffy pillows, comfy sheets, very clean, room is equipped with ironing board, huge TV and radio/CD player. Bathroom was spacious and clean. Breakfast is great - a huge buffet selection. Beware - the staff are bipolar!
My husband and I spent only one night here, our last night in Athens before flying home, but quite liked this hotel. It is modern, spacious and clean. A major plus for us was the fact that the bathroom is wonderful - it had a glass enclosed shower and a separate bathtub (this is rare in Greece). Best of all, is the wonderful SOFT bed, unlike most other beds in Greece where the mattresses are HARD! Also had all amenties expected from a 4 star place, such as hair and skin products. We did not eat in their restaurant as the prices seemed a little steep. We went instead, across the street to Alexander's restaurant and had wonderful food for reasonable prices. The only down-side was the poor lighting in the room (hard to read, either from the couch or in bed). We would consider this hotel again, if we return.
We stayed for three nights at the Imperial during the middle of summer in late August. We were impresssed by the lobby and was greeted by friendly and helpful hotel staff.
Gorgeous views, large room
I stayed at the Grecotel Athens Imperial Hotel for 3 nights while in Athens. I was very impressed. The main lobby was all marble and was very nice. My friend and I stayed in a room with two twin beds and I was shocked at how large the room was, definitely not typical European rooms. The bathroom was large, with a bath tub as well as a separate shower and was marble and tiled. The rooftop pool and bar was the highlight of the hotel. You had an incredible view of Athens and the Acropolis. We took many pictures from up there. We were within walking distance of everything and there was a metro stop right outside of our hotel. I felt safe at all times and we ate twice at the Alexander the Great cafe across the street from the hotel, very delicious.
I stay at imperial for 1 night and i was very satisfied with my choise.The room was spacy (European standards) ,large very clean bathroom and a nice view of Parthenon.Expencive furnitures ,big TV and a 'worth the money"feeling after all.The staff was very friendly and helpfull.The grecotel company (the full name of the hotel is grecotel imperial) is a trusty company in greece.At the roof there is a pool and a bar with nice views of ,modern and ancient ,Athens.Also an not so gently barman but ....he do the job even if you ask for somethink out of the ordinary.Try to book a room with breakfast ,the food is giam giam!!!! ----- is the site of the chain and you find good prices for last minute reservasions.Now the dark side of the hotel.Location.The area is propably the worst in Athens.Close to the metro ,busses etc but you don't want to hang around late at night.The safety is not so bad (police station 100 meters) but ....And the last tip,high floor rooms is much better ;)
I stayed at the Athens Imperial on a five day group trip to Athens. It is a brand new hotel built for the 2004 Olympics and it is fabulous! So close to the Plaka and pretty much walking distance to all the major points in the city. The hotel staff were super friendly and all spoke English impeccably. The rooms were just wonderful; huge bathrooms, everything ultra modern, and all the rooms have either a view of Karasaki Square (which is ALIVE at night - but you don't hear anything in the sound proof rooms), or of the Acropolis! The hotel serves a wonderful buffet breakfast with just about everything you can imagine. The hotel bar is open until the early hours of the morning, and once again, with the friendliest staff. This hotel was wonderful and is a credit to Athens and the newly re-designed Karisakaki Square! Oh, and by the way, there is a FANTASTIC little restaurant right opposite the entrance of the hotel, which serves true Greek style, or American style food, and once again - all the staff spoke perfect English. This was the best meal we had in Greece!
