"Definitely not a five star. Major upgrade needed"
People were good and views from rooftop great. beds, linen, room appointments, plumbing, water heater, hallway ac in horrible shape and no better than two or three stars.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great neighborhood location near sites"
It was a nice hotel but it was definitely not a 5 star hotel as advertised. I heard many complaints from people about their rooms and lumpy beds etc. I felt a bit taken by the way the hotel was shown on line and 5 star rating. If it was advertised as a 4 star I would say it was a great stay. Besides that the staff was wonderful, the breakfast spectacular […] but the bathroom was not cleaned properly - the previous guests hair was found all over the floor. Great location.

"middle of all historical sites"
A very good hotel for families. Excellent breakfast buffet. The hotel is a walk distance to all the historical sites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aging hotel full of bus tours"
It's a good location with rooms showing their age. It's close to, but not in, the noisy tourist area. Short walk to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent! Clean rooms, nice decor, small refrige, hair dryer, safety box and could exchange dollars to euros. Close by many must see sites & a hop on hop off bus stop super close to get on to go to sites far away. Also restaurants, shops, grocery store & bakery in walking distance....felt very safe to walk around there even in the evenings! Had a balcony […] room with a great view to the acropolis !!!

"Horrible, not at all like the pictures"
The rooms in one wing are old and dingy with only plug in Internet and the other side is updated with wifi and newer but smells and the connection is not good. The pool looks nothing like the picture, not a place you want to sit by as is much of the rest of the hotel. Nothing like the pictures. If you want a nice place to stay go to the water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rude staff restaurant"
Very rude servers at the restaurants ..the rooftop bar as well as the hotel restaurant downstairs ....location is not that great nor the sourrandings. The parking is awful bad..hotel itself is amazing...Bed mattresses pretty hard to sleep on ...do not get souvenirs around the hotel .. Go to PLAKA AREA close by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Service was outstanding (5), hotel, rooms and food above average (4). Location-great (5).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is within easy walking distance of Akroplis area, Metro, shops, and cafes. Had some issues with phone not working and not getting a wake up call - luckily it was not the day we were leaving for the airport and staff resolved issue right away when brought to their attention.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet but convenient location"
This was our second stay because it is hard to find a great hotel in an attractive, quiet neighborhood in noisy, crowded Athens. It is a very short walk to the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum. The staff members are delightful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very convenient to everything in athens, walk up to the acropolis, plaka, local restraunts. great stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A sanctuary in Athens"
Clean, cool, very professional staff. Only downside is that one must walk in tiny neighborhood streets with cracked and jagged sidewalks. Not a great place for elderly or feeble types. Otherwise, a perfect respite from the hectic Athenian city!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for visiting the Parthenon"
This used to be a very upscale hotel, in a great location in Athens. My sense after returning after 8 years is that it has not kept up in capital improvements, and the interior looks quite dated. Furniture and the bathroom feels quite worn and used. The location of course is still great, and for this reason, staying here still makes sense for vacation […] tourists.

Hotel Divani is rated as a four star hotel and you might expect more of what you really get at the end, would´t recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not recomended to any one this is a 1 star hotel"
it was the wotrh hotel i have ever been i dont recomed to any one they should rate a 1 star hotel and not five stars the only positve think is his location near the acropolis if someone need to stay thereGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is well located , very close to the Acropolis, the new Acropolis Museum, METRO and the Plaka. It has a lovely rooftop and groundfloor swimming pool. We appreciated the helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
close to Acropolis, ok amenities, feels like 4 star hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Filthy, disgusting, and backwards."
Though the receptionists were very professional and tried to make us happy. We went to Divani with the notion that it is a 5 start hotel and every where they were advertising it as a 5 star hotel. However, the rooms were very old and worn out. The bed and the sheets were simply disgusting. The hallway smelled of cigarette and mold. This hotel has not […] been updated since early eighties. What a waste of time and money! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Location and amenities were very good, with access to Acropolis and Museum terrific. Staff was very helpful and responsive to questions and requests. Lots of middle and high school tour groups made the lobby and hotel noisy, but with everything else positive, I'd consider staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"fun time in Athens"
The staff was fabulous! They couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They were so helpful and friendly. The rooms were a little small and need some updating. I would rate the hotel appearance as a 3. The staff as a 5. The location was a 5 minute walk to the Acropolis. The food in the restaurant bar area was really good. The rooftop […] restaurant was closed but Stoffi's up the street has a fantastic view of the Acropolis while you eat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a very nice stay at the Divani Hotel. It was walking distance to the Plaka and the acropilis.The front desk workers were very nice and helped us with all our needs. They all spoke English and were able to direct us to any places we needed to go. They even recommended a great place to see a dinner show. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. […] The breakfast buffet was also very good. I also enjoyed swimming in the pool. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best location ever"
The Divani is in a super location. Steps from the Acropolis, the Acroplis Museum and the Plaka. The rooms were very comfortable, well decorated and clean. The roof garden restaurant has a wonderful view of the acropolis! I also thought the price was quite competitive. The only downside was the interior noise. My room was very well insulated from outside […] noise but I could hear much of what happened in the room next to mine as well as above. My friend who was in the room next to mine said his room was quiet. So go figure. I would stay here again and perhaps request a room on the top floor to eliminate noise from above.

"Great Location & Friendly Staff"
If you are looking to see the Acropolis and Shop in the Plaka this is the perfect hotel. It was clean, freindly and just what we were looking for in a vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great room and good location."
For the price this was a very nice two room (sitting room and bedroom) suite. The location was near the Acropolis and the new Acropolis museum and the Acropolis metro station. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Walking distance to Plaka and the Acropolis and Acropolis museum. Beautiful view of Acropolis at night from rooftop bar. Room was a little small, but acceptable and clean. Hotel employees were mostly helpful and courteous, with the exception of maybe one. It happens. Pool was very nice. Overall would definitely reccomend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"VERY close to Acropolis"
Rooftop restaurant/lounge has excellent evening view of Acropolis & Parthenon. Location is superb, walking distance to Acropolis and Museum. No onsite parking, but there is secure parking a couple blocks away for ~17€/day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Acropolis, Food and Shopping"
Great location and helpful, English-speaking staff. There is air-conditioning, which is a must in Athens. Very short walk to the Acropolis and Plaka area of the city. Would reccomend to other travelers.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, good service"
The location was very close to the Acropolis. Desk attendants were very helpful when asked various things. Took metro from aiport, got off at Acropolis station, very closeby. Rooftop dinner was nice, but don't let the photos fool you, there is only half a view of the Acropolis, depending on where you sit. Also is a huge tank in the view. But service […] was good, and food, too. We were celebrating our 25th anniv, and when we asked for an upgrade, were only given the same room on the front of the hotel. When we called, the desk attendant said she had given us a room on that side, which had an Acropolis view. There was no view. Had to stand on tip-toes on balcony to even see it. Obviously, no upgrade. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a great location as it's really close to the acropolis, but when I found out to see the view that the hotel promised I had to bend over from the balcony it was really disappointing same thing with roof top restaurant it's not like the picture shows rooms and lobby furniture needs a real make over and updated overall three star rating. […] The worst thing about the hotel is the hotel rooms, very dark, eerie, smelly and outdated furniture. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We are well traveled Australians with high expectations and I was rather concerned after booking to see a few negative reviews, I am pleased to say that for those people having a bad hair day when reviewing Divani they should stay away from the computer!! as everything was as per the advertising photos quality etc etc The rooftop garden has been the […] highlight of all restaurants so far with the view of the Acropolis stunning at night and not expensive But superb food and great service.

"Wonderful hotel and ideal location"
This hotel was exactly what we needed, being our first time to Athens. The location is perfect close to all the main attractions. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Staff were more than happy to help us with all the usual tourist questions. They made us feel welcome, and confident in exploring this great city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel with a great location"
Thought the hotel was a great choice, really good location close to the Acropolis and other main sites, and as it was only 5 minutes to the tube station, it was easy to get around the city. The hotel staff were friendly and polite, and the facilities were very good. Our room was immaculate on arrival and was clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Poor quality. Personally it's a 3 star hotel"
Foyer was extremely noisy and when guests were asked to be quiet they became aggressive. Reception staff poor service. Rooms have no kettle or basic hot beverages. Far better hotels close byGenuine Expedia guest review
"Definitely Not a Five Star Hotel"
This father and 18 yr old daughter stayed at this hotel for five nights on personal recommendation from Australian Greek friends. It was reasonably comfortable and is well located for visits to the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. The area is a bit run down (admittedly fairly typical for central Athens) and the hotel staff were somewhat indifferent despite […] being nearly deserted in the off-season except for the occasional tour group. Not a bad hotel but suspect there are better at the same price if one has time to thoroughly research the options. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A total of five nights over two stays at Divani Palace during January which seemed all but deserted except for an occasional tour group. The property was clean and comfortable and the staff reasonably friendly and approachable. About a five minute walk to nearest Metro stations (Syngrou-Fix and Acropolis). Did not eat at the hotel due to high prices. […] The hotel is located in a rather run-down area, but that seems to apply to much of Athens. Would recommend this hotel with qualification.

"Nice hotel, close to major attractions"
It's a nice hotel, near the main attractions and close to metro stations. Staff were helpful and let you get on with things without fuss. Rooms were nice enough, not really a 5 star hotel though. And the rooms were always cleaned to a pleasant standard after you leave the room for the day. There is no wifi in the rooms which was a disappointment. However […] the wifi is available in the Hotel Lobby and there is plenty of room to sit down and do your web 'surfing'. Do ask for a room on the higher floors for a nice view of the Acropolis.

"Great location at base of Acropolis."
Nice clean & modern rooms. Price is reasonable. Very friendly staff & Aphrodite, the Breakfast manageress had us all laughing with her witty conversation. Pool is small & surrounded by buildingsGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel but the free wifi is a wastof time. The onlookers wifi available in in the lobby and that drops out regularly. Don't try and send a large file it will disappear.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good value for what we got, the room was clean, spacious, and the staff were helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
On the plus side, friendly and professional staff in all departments of the hotel and a high standard of cleanliness in the rooms. On the negative side, the rooms are quite basic with old CRT televisions instead of flatscreen tvs, no iron or ironing board for clothes in the room and old style hairdryer fitted in the bathroom. The pool is located at […] the back of the hotel and due to the presence of surrounding high rise buildings only captures the sun for a couple of hours every day. Overall, a good hotel, but not, in my opinion, a 5 star hotel. Perhaps a rating of between 3 and 4 stars would be more appropriate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location, Location, Location"

"Nice but not 5 star"
Beds were not comfortable Mini bar prices extremely over priced Nice hotel well located Would have liked Internet service offered in the roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Get an executive room on the renovated side"
Once we switched rooms we thoroughly enjoyed our stay but the original room would have had a rating of "one", not "four". The hotel is literally two hotels in one. One side is lovely, recently renovated, stylish and clean and the other side is old, in need of repair and dirty. The "old" room had peeling wall paper, dirty carpet, a strange odor and a […] dead roach on the floor. The refurbished room was clean, had great air-conditioning (which was great during the heat wave), a flat screen tv and comfortable beds. I can recommend the executive rooms but would strongly advise someone not to stay on the other half. The "old side" does not have wi-fi in the rooms. It was for this reason that they agreed to switch us to an executive room for the last three nights of our four night stay. The reception was quite good about making the switch to a different room and no extra cost was incurred. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gret place, great location, great service"
Highly recommendedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is probably the best you could find in Athens - I definitely recommand this area near the Acropolis. If you want to visit the historic sites - the Acropolis and its museum, the Agora, the Kerameikos cemetery, you don't even need to use public transportation. The Acropolis station is very close so that you can go everywhere else. The rooms […] are not very large, but clean and very comfortable, the breakfast is great. One detail: Internet isn't free, which is a little bit surprising and the connection was not very good the day I tried to use it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
