Summer - dad and sons history trip
We chose the Radisson Blu Park hotel because it had a rooftop pool and a reputation for quality. The hotel works hard to maintain the very highest standards in clearly a very difficult economic climate. The makeover that the hotel had some years ago is a little worn but don’t let that put you off.
The hotel is staffed by the most pleasant and professional people, who are warm and proud of their city and heritage. They are keen to know of any disappointment and did their level best to compensate. Despina, in customer relations, heads up a very sharp team. She understands global standards of hotelier and goes above and beyond to ensure customer enjoyment.
Food and drink are second to none. They do understand profit though, and you pay a lot for corporate hotel fayre, but it’s actually worth it!
The location is great for bus and metro and being a couple of stops away from the tourist centre gives an air of a more authentic Athens experience. The surrounding area is in decline but gives you a taste of the real Athens, in contrast to the political and ancient areas of this fine city. Nonetheless, the people, who clearly enjoy working there, will give you an excellent stay, and we’d certainly go back without hesitation. Thanks guys!
