We spent five nights in a superior room, with breakfast included. We had an 'evil eye' room which was wonderfully decorated, clean and comfortable, if not that spacious. Comfortable bed, good aircon and free wifi appreciated. Small little things were missing from housekeeping but promptly dealt with once we notified reception.
We arrived early and the staff were very welcoming, offering us drinks of water on arrival and they did their best to arrange for us to check in early, after only a little wait.
Hotel is decorated in wonderful, modern, creative decor from the lobby, throughout the rooms, to the roof top. Loved the use of recycled materials used so creatively throughout the design. One of the best contemporary designed hotels we have stayed in.
Perfect location, in the centre of Athens, walking distance to most main sites and Plaka area.
Enjoyed delicious breakfast daily, good selection with eggs made to order to your liking. Also had dinner in the restaurant downstairs which we enjoyed. Dinner on the rooftop restaurant which much the same, except with wonderful views.
Roof top terrace is a great place to relax for a drink in the evening after a busy day, with great views over Athens.
Staff were always friendly and helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

... where we didn't speak the language, where streets don't have rules or laws, at night. ****. It was a good thing Mitch came along for this trip or I may have gotten in a lot more trouble.

Thank goodness he knew that because I'd no idea. The map was not as helpful as you might think. It wasn't the detailed map ...
... to help tummy ache and ulcers. Richard had some of that. Then we went into the meat shop. This was filled with hanging meat but unlike the Italian shop they were all faked we tasted the traditional flattened and spiced meat , Mipan and smoked olives here. Our final stop was the fruit market. The prices of nectarine, peaches and all other fruit and veg continue to surprise us. We bought a kg of nectarines and peaches for .50c. ...
... Now a ruin of its formal glory, it is still easy to imagine crowds of eager Athenians gathering in the amphitheatre to take in a Satyr Play, or a tragedy - invented here in Athens by Thespis (hence the term thespian for actor).
We followed up lunch with a visit to the Acropolis Museum, which makes a nice addition to a visit to the Acropolis. While ancient ruins are impressive, it's often difficult to tell what you are looking at without a PhD in ...
... visited back in the 1970's but we can honestly say we did not recognised the place with cafes and bars all along the waterfronts. We have to be back on board by 1.30am when we set sail for our next island, we are back in good time for me to write up the blog to share with you a great day in Athens and our first port of call.The ship is quite a bit different to our usual cruise ships It's going to be a different type of cruise for us but one we are going to enjoy very much. ...
