“Much nicer, and cheaper than the hotel we booked!”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We were booked for 2 nights at Hotel Novus City, but on arrival were told that because of a large group having to stay longer because of plane cancellation, that we would be stying at Melia. A taxi was provided and it was not very far away. Reception staff were very nice and upgaded us to a superior room with Spa bath. The hotel was very clean and elegantly furnished. The rooftop bar and pool looked very nice, but the pool is closed from 6pm, so we didn;'t get to use it. Breakfast was included and there was a very good good selection from the buffet. After breakfast, reception organised us a taxi back to Hotel Novus City (which Novus City paid for). I would have been very happy to have stayed the next night at Melia, it was superior to ur first choice.

Dear Lynchmurray,

Thank you so much for your good comments. We were delighted to read that you have enjoyed staying with us even for a single night. If only, you could have stayed longer, you would have been able to spend the day at our pool. The Skylounge (rooftop) closes from 18:00 till 20:00, in order for us to get ready for the evening.

Hope to see you again on your future visit to Greece.

Kind Regards,

Zoi Kanto-Tourkmani

The best time. Melia Athens Hotel takes care of you right from the start of your inquiry - all my emails prior to my actual visit were responded with care within 1-2 days of sent, even when the mails went through different staff members. They were all happy to help you make the most of your visit. For me, that was very important because they put their guests first consistently. And the best experience came when I actually got there, to find the rooms very clean and spacious, with spa & jacuzzi facilities included. I agree that wifi would of been nice to be available in the room, but the hotel lobby was so cozy that I actually had no problems spending my time there for internet connection. Dinner at Melia's rooftop Sky Lounge is wonderful and reasonably priced. Special thanks made out to Mrs.Sarantidou for taking her time to welcome me as I had unfounded anxiety prior to my trip. You can also find my hotel review at my personal blog www.thesuperfairy.blogspot.com .... BRAVO MELIA ATHENS!

We got a free upgrade to a deluxe room with jacuzzi and all the services that is reception, housekeeping were v good. i have only one suggestion that they should provide free internet to guests in their rooms also.

My daughter and I stayed here last week and were very pleased with everything to do with the hotel but please beware that the area is not very nice and girls on their own should note that they'll need to take taxis to the centre at night to be safe. It only takes a few minutes in the car so it isn't expensive.

That said the hotel room, pool and staff were very nice indeed and the views from the roof are really nice too.

Breakfast was included in the tariff which was very reasonable for the standard of the hotel and it was of very high standard on each of the 4 mornings that we were there.

Room Tip: It's on quite a busy corner so we had a room on the top floor which was quite quiet.

We spend our last night there.
Was a doble lux room at first floor, not very noisy.
We choose this hotel because is just a few minutes from the arqueological museum
and also the swimming pool is nice when you have children.
The personal of the hotel was correct.
