Stayed here 21 - 23 October 2005
Very cool hotel, within a 10 minute walk of Kifissia's shopping district, many bars and restaurants.
Positives: hotel will arrange meet and greet pickup from airport (35EUR) - simply email hotel with flight info; ultra modern; very friendly, helpful, English speaking reception staff; excellent "rain type" shower with hand shower; mood lighting in room; 24 room service (breakfast served @ 04:00); free WIFI in rooms - ask for login name - and free internet access in lobby; free DVD and CD collection to use in room, available at reception; very good but expensive restaurant in hotel which turns into a bar on weekend nights.

Negatives: many taxi drivers do not know about this hotel or recognize the address; very few authentic Greek restaurants in the area - take the great subway into Athens;

Unique Qualities: Unique qualities: cool decor and use of colour and lighting; high tech gadgets - scrolling electronic sign on the floor outside room can be changed from 'do not disturb' to 'please clean room'
