Hilton Athens

We stayed in Hilton Athens during our visit and it was perfect. Good staff is one of the most important asset for hotel business and we must say, this hotel has lovely staff.

Checkin was smooth and easy and we were greeted as Diamond members and all benefits were explained. They generously upgraded us to Olive suite which was perfect and they also gave us city map and tour guide book during checkin which comes handy when you visiting new place.

This suite had a big balcony which had two chairs and table placed for sitting. Given the weather conditions, it was very nice and we did enjoyed it.

In room, a welcome letter, a bottle of greek red wine and cupcakes were placed which was nice. Strangely, they did not provide complimentary water in room which I only knew during checkout because there was a water bottle bottle which we thought was complimentary and used it. They charged us 8 EUR for that. They did not put the new one during the entire stay and we did not ask for it as well.

We were already so happy with the hotel that we did not complain or said anything to them.

Executive lounge is located at 11th floor and there were cookies, fruits, drinks during entire day and selection was much better than most of the hotels. Happy hour was equally good with nice quality food but it gets crowded during happy hour. We never had a problem finding a table but some guys needed to wait for sometime before the table is available.

View from executive lounge was nice. its kids friendly which is must for us.

We had a choice to have breakfast in lounge or main restaurent and we chose the main restaurant and never visited lounge during breakfast.

Restaurant was never too crowded and had lovely staff. They also offered balloon to a kid everyday and did offer a drawing set once as well which was nice.

Food quality and selection was nice. The only critic could be that it was same during our entire stay but nowadays its like that with most of the hotels and it was perfect for our not so long stay.

We found hotel location to be good and taxis are generally cheap in Athens. 6 EUR can get you to most of the tourist attractions if you don’t want to walk. Weather was beautiful during our stay and we did walk a lot and enjoyed the most.

We wish that all the properties could be so nice but this won’t be happening anytime. This is a solid hotel and we strongly recommend it.

We felt that we really got a lot more than what we have paid and we were extremely satisfied with our stay.
