I have E Mailed to complain but have no response.You are advertising facilities at the hotel which were not available . I did a lot of research into booking the right hotel for our stay in Athens as it probably be the only time we will visit and as a keen swimmer a nice pool was important for me and I also wanted a hotel with a great view and Melia Athens ticked both of these boxes. When we arrived the weather was fair but we were told the pool was shut because a storm was due we could not even go to the roof top to enjoy the view, I totally accept that you cannot control the weather but the storm lasted about 3 hours and by 2pm it was really hot and it would have been lovely to be able to enjoy the pool and its surrounding and relax. We then thought well at least we can enjoy the view over dinner in the rooftop restaurant but of course that was shut too. I believe that you are incorrectly advertising facilities at this hotel. The day we left the weather was lovely and we went to the pool and it was still not open I think this was a cost cutting exercise as they did not need to pay the lifeguard if the pool was shut . I do feel sorry for the staff who ave to deal with complaints about pool closure etc they did try to make up for our dissapointment by allowing early check in and a spa bath room but this was not why we booked this hotel The lovely photos of the rooftop pool and restaurant in the lift just added to our anger each time we used it. I have used Trip Advisor for reviews quite a few times but this is the first time I have complained.

Although located in a rather decadent suburb, it is very close to Sintagma Square. Hotel is welcoming, staff is helpful and polite. Food selection wasn't that wide but decent and fairly priced apart from the prosecco - bit overpriced and not so distinctive as quality. Overall it was a wonderful stay and a special mention to Foutini the best waitress ever!
Good location to stay in Athens

We stayed in a guestroom with a Queen bed for 4 nights while we were in Athens for our honeymoon. The hotel is about 10 stories with a pool and restuarant on the roof. Its location in the center of Athens is not a very nice spot, but is conveniently located at the intersection of two main roads which make for very easy 15-30 minute walks to great spots in Athens, including the Acropolis, Plaka, and Psyrri districts. The room is nice, if a little business-feeling, and the service is good. I would recommend the Melia Athens for anyone staying in Athens for the first time who wants a nice place to stay which is walking distance from the things to do in Athens, and does not want to deal with the downsides of booking an AirBnB or hostel.
Solid Hotel, very nice staff

I have stayed at a couple of Melia Hotels and this one was up to the standard. My room was a bit dark but very quiet so I appreciated that. I did not have the breakfast as I thought it was a bit overpriced considering the regular prices for food in Athens. The neighborhood is absolutely fine, I traveled alone as a woman and I felt completely save.
Service failings and tired

We arrived early in the morning and were told no rooms in our category were available. Two ladies who were already staying in the hotel were also at reception and wanted to move rooms..they were immediately given an available room in our category….. not a good start. We sat and waited in a dark lounge. The coffee shop was not open and we had not been offered a drink on arrival which is pretty normal in hotels in warm climates. For some reason the pool didn’t even open till 10;30 so forget any idea of a pre breakfast swim; and of course we couldn’t even sit in the sunshine to wait. You had to sign for the pool towels - not sure why anyone would consider taking them as they were very very old and very frayed. The pool has a nice view of the Pantheon. The room had a lot of wardrobe space but when showering before dinner we found there was no shampoo or body wash in the containers ( nailed to the wall). The towels were again threadbare and a long way from the white they should be ( shades of grey). We advised reception of the missing amenities on our way out to dinner. On our return 4 hours later, we immediately checked the containers… still empty. A very angry call to reception resulted in an employee at our door within minutes with a bar of soap and shampoo. Afterwards, we found that housekeeping had left supplies in the room but on a corner of the sink instead of refilling the containers and we had not spotted these. The toiletries were actually of good quality and smelt nice! We called reception and apologised for our ire. On checkout no one acknowledged or mentioned the issues we had. Whilst waiting for our Uber on departure the toilets in reception did not have hand soap and the air dryers did not work. Having stayed in many Melia hotels around the world this one fell short of the quality I have come to expect from the brand.
