    Good stay

    A very good hotel and enjoyed my stay. The pool area and bar is fantastic. I didn’t score higher as even during the day the music is so loud . Also the lifts are not adequate for the amount of guests. There is a small reception desk which I think is too small for the hotel - always a long queue to speak to someone . Saying that they are very helpful. Finally, there was no kettle in the room. Maybe not a thing in Greece but would have been a good addition

    Painful lift experience. Only 2 lifts for too many people. Rushed out of breakfast (time limitation), anlthough breakfast was good. Late night ice cream was warm and not cold. Cappuccino cold and not hot during evening late drink. If your going charge top rate, serve top rate. Swimming pool is good but why bother with elevator lift music on poolside. Don’t bother. Staff seem fed up everywhere….perhaps it’s everywhere in Athens. Breakfast is good but rushed at closing time. Not cheap either, perhaps normal experience for those staying in Athens. Sorry won’t return.

    Melia can do better

    The unfortunate reason for this low review is there was no hot water for showering this morning. This was not resolved for the entire morning; we left for the day at 10:30 AM. The room, breakfast buffet, and overall service is good. We have the breakfast included option, but to get coffee in a to-go cup we were charged.

    Pre cruise stay in Athens - Easter 2024

    We booked the Melia for the roof top views of Athens from the pool and bar. Unfortunately we were a week too early and the area was having maintenance work. We could go and see the view in the evening but was not quite what we expected. Our room was a lovely size and the jacuzzi bath a nice touch. Although on a Main Street the noise was minimal with the windows shut. We did find the bedroom quite warm for us, we do like it artic. The hotel location is walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants and we felt quite safe making the wander back. We booked the night before boarding a cruise. The hotel is quite a distance from the cruise port, however you get to see some sights on the drive. Traffic can be really heavy so allow plenty of time. We would stay here again as was a comfortable hotel.

    PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE, IT IS NOT SAFE!!!!! The hotel is located at the worst possible location, way too many homeless people, garbage all over the place... That is somehow understandable due to the difficult situation Greece is having; however it is inconceivable that they don't have any security there... NO ONE! You are basically all by yourself. On April 2024, we were picking up our luggage and someone from outside came in and took my wife's backpack where we had all of our passports. When they showed me the surveillance cameras, you can actually see the moment where the Albanian homeless takes the backpack and the guy from the front desk walks into him just to ask him if he needed something. But when me wife came back to ask for the backpack, the response was that someone just took it. To be clear, I know the guy is from Albania because at the end of the day, tI managed to catch the thief with the help of the police, following them with the "Find my Iphone" app, but the passports were already gone. After that, the hotel provided some help with the international calls and calling the police, but after other than that... nothing. They took CERO responsibility; they even said that there was nothing they can do because the lobby is a public space. They said that they couldn't help us with a room, and that they will not pay for any other hotel... So there were we, with a 4 year old daughter, in the wild. My wife wrote the next day to Melia International, and the response was that they provided all the help and that we decided to stay, even after advising that the Tourist Police could give us a paper to leave the country (which by the way, is not true).
