    Comfortable room, very clean and well decorated.

    Central Athens, but not the nicest area. The hotel was nice, but they did not have face cloths in the room. They brought some if you asked for them, but housekeeping never replaced them when they cleaned, they just took them away and you had to ask for more.

    While checking-in, our backpack was stolen from underneath our feet, in the presence of two receptionists, a security guard, a porter, and security cameras. As we just arrived from the airport, we were carrying all our valuables with us. Two laptops, an iPad, an iPhone, a debit card, a passport, and other items were stolen, with a total loss of almost gbp 5000. The hotel refused to provide any meaningful assistance beyond a report to the police (not even to look at their security cameras), expecting our insurance to cover the loss, and therefore not a big deal. From staff conduct and manager's statement, it was evident there have been similar incidents before. We arrived by taxi from the airport with our 4-month-old daughter. When called to the counter to check-in, we took our passports from our carry-on backpack and placed it by our feet. A couple of minutes later, the receptionist checking us in asked "do you have all your bags or is something missing"? (What a strange question to ask?!?) We looked and the carry-on backpack with all our valuables was missing. The other receptionist ran in front of the hotel, but the person who just left the lobby allegedly did not carry anything. The security guard and porter said they did not see anything. We explained the value of the things just being stolen and asked the staff to look at the security camera footage but they refused, claiming that it would be against Greek law for them to look at the footage and only the police can look at the footage after the police formally request the footage from the hotel. The receptionist took us to a local police station to make a report of the incident. The hotel claimed nothing else could be done and kept refusing the security footage. We ultimately hired a Greek lawyer, who confirmed we were actually entitled to see the footage. At that point, the hotel started saying there was in fact no security footage available.

    Was told breakfast would be included upon check-in. As my wife and I were eating breakfast we were asked for room number and were told it was not included. Was charged 38 euros for breakfast that included cold eggs and bacon.
