During our stay at the Hilton I was between appointments so there was no time to do much, -visit a museum or even get down to the city center.

First 2 nights in Greece

We love the facilities. It's a little on the expensive side, but as a comfortable change before we head back home, it's very nice. Highly recommended.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Athens
Tripadvisor reviews were bang on with this hotel. 1 of the best Hiltons with its recent renovations for the Olympics. The IOC used the hotel as its headquarters during the Games which should give you an idea of the quality of the premises (the IOC being is the king of perqs, luxury & "free gifts"). As a HH Gold member, was upgraded to Executive Floor with access to the Club Lounge. Very impressive - service, drinks, snacks, views of Acropolis. Knock your socks off buffet breakfast - belly will hurt after due to array of options.
Best in Athens
Beautiful, chic, and modern. I love this hotel. The lobby is beautiful and the roof top patio is very cool. I had a great room with a view of the Acropolis. I stayed at the Hilton and the Grand Bretagne and I preferred the Hilton. 9 times out of 10 I prefer SPG over Hilton, but not in the case of Athens or Los Cabos. The shower was the best I've had with great power. The entire hotel is brand new with Italian sofas and art through out the lobby. The location is not as good as GB, but I'd still rather stay here. Great job Hilton.
One word: Superb
As a gold member of Hilton, I stay many nights in Hilton hotels around the globe. I have seen bad ones (Detroit airport hilton) and great ones (Hilton Dubai Creek). But the Hilton Athens is the best until now. The old fashioned exterior transfers via the lobby slowly into the great modern rooms. Wooden floors, great design, a bathroom seperated via glass walls. Great shower, two showerheads, one normal and one mounted at the roof (With an enormous water flow). Don't forget to check the fabolous night club at the top floor. Great design (again) and great snacks, with a view at the Arcropolis..
Athens?? Stay at the Hilton, its worth it
This was one of the best Hiltons that I've stayed at. I was really surprised because the hotel looked pretty ugly from the outside. The looks are really deceiving. The hotel is beautiful on the inside. It was renovated about a year ago in a very cutting edge style. Hilton did not spare any expenses. The aesthetics were very pleasing. Large hallways, sleek metal, marble, natural woods, and high tech buttons and dials. The hotel was like a self contained oasis in Athens. Think Lost in Translation. There were so many amenities that I had no reason to leave the hotel. I was fortunate to stay in an Executive suite. My wife was a Diamond level member so we got a free upgrade. The Executive suite is worth the price. The room was spacious. The shower had an overhead large rain shower fixture. The suite also afforded free access to the Executive lounge and health club and pool facilities. The Executive lounge was open all day and was constantly stocked with fruit, pastries, hors d'oeuvres, juices, and soft drinks. In the afternoon and evening, it had beer, wine, and liqueurs. All this was free! The health club was just as good as any upscale gym in America. The gym was very quiet, and all of the equipment was brand new. The only problem was that I couldn't figure out how much weight I was lifting because everything was in kilograms. The hotel also had 2 pools--one indoor and one outdoor. The indoor pool looked really cool. It was slightly elevated. The walls of the pool were made of glass so it looked like a giant aquarium. Access to the health club and pool normally costs 10 Euros for non-Executive level rooms. I still think it's worth it. I can't say enough about this Hilton. I've stayed at a lot of Hiltons but not one like this.
Good service and ammenities, but not the best in Athens
I stayed at the Hilton Athens upon arrival 01May in Greece for 4 nights, and then at the Grande Bretagne 17May as my last hotel in Greece for 2 nights just to compare the two.
The Athens Hilton is a good hotel, you will certainly not be disappointed. Rooms feel totally new, ultra-modern and large, and fairly clean (the usual dust behind the bed and furniture). The view of the Acropolis and Mt. Likavitos all the way down to the sea and to islands beyond is spectacular and worth the extra $$$. The buffet breakfasts are extensive and an adventure in itself. On the down side, I arrived on May 1st (a holiday weekend). There was a skeleton crew and the service was non-existent. My reservation was incorrect. They ran out of wash cloths on Sunday. Service improved greatly on Monday. There is no full time concierge at this hotel and there is frequently a waiting line at the front desk. Wakeup calls are automated messages. You have to take a taxi or the Metro to eat or see anything. There is no carpeting in the rooms, just small bedside area rugs. The thermostat is incredibly complex. Someone had removed all the chairs off our balcony.
If you have a choice, the Grande Bretagne is the superior hotel. For tourists, it is much better located right in Syntagma Square so a taxi is almost never necessary. There is a full concierge staff. The entire hotel staff tries hard and is extremely efficient (some can be admittedly haughty, but this is true at the Hilton as well). The buffet breakfast is not nearly as extensive as the Hilton, but quality is high, although no eggs-to-order cook here. Beds, carpeting, inlaid marble and furnishings (including the gilded chandelier) look and feel luxurious, are new and impeccably clean. Cable TV has not only the ever-present CNN and BBC, but CNBC, Bloomberg and Discovery as well (if you decide to stay in your room!). Nightly turn-down service includes a bottle of mineral water by your bed. A newspaper each morning. Food and service at the GB Corner Restaurant is top notch if expensive. Best of all for finnicky people, you are able to flush the TP down your toilet without guilt (the only luxury hotel we found in Greece without the ever present foot-operated trash can next to the toilet)!!
From the exterior, the hotel looks like a tacky 1960's throwback you'd see in on a postcard from your grandmother. But step inside and 'Opa!' This is a beautiful hotel that combines 'hip' and 'chic' with classic and comfortable. The room was modern and sumptuous with breathtaking views of the Acropolis through large glass doors leading to the deck.
The bathroom is also glass-enclosed, with top end fixtures. We took photos of ourselves in every corner of the room, sporting our robes.
The location is good and easy to walk to the hip and happening locales of Athens. The express bus from the Airport stops directly in the front of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.
Definitely world class!
I was here for 2 nights on a reward stay. When first looking at this hotel from the outside, it seems a little drab. However, once you walk inside, it's a different world. This Hilton recently spent big $$ renovating the hotel and it shows.
The check-in and lobby are just beautiful. The space is very modern but extremely tasteful. I'm a HHonors Gold so was told to go to the 18th floor for check in. Although it was a reward stay, they gave me an excellent room with a beautiful view of the Acropolis. (Ok, it's a little far from the Acropolis but the view was still magnificent.) The room itself was beautiful. Actually, words can't desribe the room. I'm a business traveller who logs over 60K in airline miles a year and this is definitely one of the best hotels/rooms I've ever stayed in. The room was very modern and had a separate bathtub and shower.
The Club Lounge is great. The breakfast offered is definitely one of the best in any HHonors lounge. It had different meats, smoked salmon, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, fresh squeezed OJ, selection of wines and beers. Oh, and the food keeps coming after breakfast. In fact, there's food here all the time.
The reception and staff are extremely pleasant and I do not have any complaints whatsoever. There's a metro station about a block away so it's very convenient for sightseeing.
I highly recommend this hotel. Currently, it's listed as a HHonors Cat 3 hotel but that's definitely going to change. Book a reward room here fast before it does change.
I previously stayed at the Athens Hilton and I found it to be the most fantastic hotel in the entire world! Its beautifull inside and out. I reccomend that you go to the top floor for drinks and cocktails and to take in the stunning skyline. Well done to the Greeks! good luck for the2004 Olympics Costas Psarros
From May 21 to May28/03 I had the pleasure staying at Athens Hilton. I can not say enough about the service and the courtesy of the personnel.
I am an experienced traveler and know a good thing when I see one ! The Athens Hilton,is without question the best in the world. This was a marvelous experience for me and hope to return soon !!

A very nice hotel
I recently stayed at the newly renovated Athen Hilton. At first the exterior facade put me off as looking very much 3 star property but once inside everythign was of a five star quality. I stayed at the executive floor and the lounge was one of the best ones in any hilton property worldwide. There were 5 food presentations a day and of extremly high qulaity and standard. The rooms were very spacious and mine had a balcony facing the acropolis. However the health club and pool were not ready during my stay and I am sure it owuld be a great one as well. The hotel simply deserves to be the right choice for the forthcoming olympic games
