Comfortable room and a great selection of food for breakfast. Staff were generally efficient but it all felt a bit impersonal. The one dinner we had was uninspiring and expensive so after that we ate out. The rooftop pool was a good size and generally quiet. The gym was well equipped but cost 12 euros per day!

Over all a nice week long stay. in specifications: location: 2 bus stops away from Syntagma square which is the center from you can go easily to most tourist attractions (you can take bus x95 there is a stop 4 minutes walk away and it's in front of Hilton hotel, or take metro m3 and get down after 1 stop). walking from Syntagma square to the hotel is 25 minutes walk. The cost for a taxi from Syntagma square to the hotel is around 4 euro the hotel offers a shuttle to Syntagma square if I remember right the hours 08:00, 11:00, 14:00, 17:00 one day it was full and a few people left behind, there is a shuttle back from Syntagma square to the hotel as well ( 17:40 and 19:40 . there might be an additional times) form the airport to the hotel and back – bus X95 , 45 minuets ride (6 euro per pesanger). if it is really important to you to be close to the center of main attractions without the need to use public transportation I will advise you to consider twice before booking this hotel and get one which is closer to Syntagma square. Near By: the area is nice and safe ,there are a few nice restaurants and coffee shops. Taverna Elia is a recommended nice restaurant very close to the hotel. Breakfast: repetitive but nice, vegetables, cheeses, omelets, pastries, different kinds of breads , fruits, yogurts , pork, sausages. Room: make sure to write your preference while booking your room smoking or non smoking!! our room was in the 7th floor (executive floor) the room was comfortable, with a bath and a great view , cleaning service twice a day , Service: was helpful, every request was answered (printing a boarding pass, checking why the tv didn’t work…). Fast and easy check in and checkout, Nikos the concierge really helped in booking trips, and helped with useful information. Swimming pool: not big but nice , great views and air. The pool bar service was a bit slow and not always helpful (first time we got up no one acknowledged us/ brought a menu or asked if we need something). as we booked an executive room we were given a two cards per day for an alcoholic drink, we were told we can book them from 19:00 on the last day while in the pool bar they took the cards from us during day time – so if you get this cards make sure exactly the time and where you can use them)

The hotel has a great location, and is definitely old, but beautiful. Our suite was very spacious with a huge bathroom & sitting area. I was SO disappointed in the beds! My husband & I felt like we were sleeping on straight box springs. I'm making it a point to write this review so that others don't experience the same let down. I honestly contemplated checking into the nearby Hilton for our 2nd night. I won't be returning to this hotel.

The Divani Caraval is a gorgeous and historic hotel a little away from the craziness around the Acropolis, Zappeion, National Garden, and all of the shopping and cafe's that surround these historic landmarks. It's simple to get to and from, and worth the walk back (less than a mile) from the a day out. The staff is great and check-in was extremely quick. The corner room suite was perfect for the two-weeks-worth of luggage from 11 days on Rhodes (a must) and the large bathroom was a welcome change to the resorts we'd, somewhat, gotten used to. The rooftop pool and associated bar provide an amazing late afternoon & evening location for some drinks while watching the sun dip behind the Acropolis and you can see the vastness of Athens. Unfortunately, the beds (2 twins making up a king) were a disaster. 11 pm local time and getting in late a good night sleep was required for the full day ahead shopping and site-seeing; this did not happen, however. After first lying down I actually checked to see if the mattress was actually a box spring on top of the usual box spring. I found it was, indeed, a 'mattress' complete with a mattress pad possibly thinner than a 12-year old ratty undershirt. Luckily, the stay was short. Breakfast was certainly doable and there were plenty of options from cured salmon and meats, plenty of breads, baguettes, yogurt, eggs and sausage, sauteed mushrooms, and fruits.

Located about 2.5 km northwest of the Acropolis, the hotel is within easy walking distance of most of Athens' tourist hotspots (for those comfortable with walking). The hotel lobby is large and impressive, with a vast cathedral ceiling dominated by a massive crystal chandelier. As one would expect in Greece the lobby is covered in marble, with glass, chrome, and brass accents. The initial impression is a very positive one. Check-in was quick and easy, having booked several months in advance. It was fortunate that I had done so because the hotel was fully booked for most of my week-long stay. The staff at the front desk are fluent in English (and other languages) and very friendly. Typical of European hotels the elevators are small, but there are four of them so the wait is seldom long despite the full guest-load. IMPORTANT NOTE: Also typical of many European hotels is the fact that you are permitted to smoke, both in many of the public spaces and in your room (if you've requested a smoking room, that is). Here's the important part: when booking your room online, even though it is not asked, you must state your room preference (smoking or non-smoking). I did not do so, so I ended up in a smoking room but was lucky because nobody had actually smoked in that room for some time so the smell was muted. My business partner, however, was not so lucky and was forced to endure the full-blown stench of the previous guest's noxious leavings. That whole area of the hotel reeked of smoke which billowed from the smoking rooms in caustic clouds every time a door was opened. This is something we in North America are - thankfully- no longer used to experiencing. Requests to be moved to a non-smoking room could not be accommodated because of the hotel's full status, or so I was told. The room (657) was spacious, by European standards, and well equipped. TV, in-room safe that's opened with your key-card, bathrobes, slippers, large marble bathroom, desk, chair, mini-fridge (with the typical overpriced drinks and snacks), kettle with instant coffee/tea assortment, and a couple of small lounger-type chairs. There was no iron or ironing board though. My room had a large window overlooking the street and areas to the north-east (not the famous landmarks). Also lacking were sufficient power outlets to plug in and recharge your electronics. The only options were to unplug a lamp or radio. Also, don't forget your outlet adapters if you're coming from outside Central Europe. Another room note: because of the hotel's angular shape there are some rooms which only have a view of the opposing stone wall of the hotel. Room 722 is one of these. If you're hoping to have a view of Athens, then you need to request it or at least request an outside-facing room. Staying in one of the "no view" rooms would be like having an inside cabin on a cruise ship. Perhaps the best feature of the hotel is the rooftop pool and lounge area. The glass walls deflect much of the wind and provide fabulous views of Athens. The pool is cool (at least it was in late September) and there are a limited number of lounge chairs. Towels are available by the bar, which has a variety of beverage options. Be aware that a beer will cost you 8 Euros. Another negative point, although not quite as bad as the smoking situation (IMO), is the hotel's exercise facility which is co-located with the top-floor spa. Even though it offers a fair selection of equipment, it is quite small and you must pay 12 Euros per day to use it! For a five-star hotel I found this to be extremely disappointing. In fact, this is this only time I have ever seen a hotel charge its clients for the use of an exercise facility. Ever! Breakfast is included in the price of your stay, and the huge buffet provides a vast selection of dining options for your first meal of the day. Coffee and tea are served to you by friendly and attentive staff. It's worth getting up for. Check-out was similar to check-in: quick and courteous. The front desk staff also arranged for a taxi, which was seamlessly passed to the bell-man who had it waiting for me nearly by the time I walked across the lobby. I'd recommend the hotel, but with a couple of negative points to be aware of: the smoking policy, the fee for the exercise room, and the weird "no view" rooms.
