Overall an okay stay. One of the bigger hotels in the city. Not a lot in the immediate area around the hotel, but walking distance to other areas and on metro line. Rooftop bar has view of Acropolis.

Great stay!!
Our stay at The Stanley was wonderful. When we arrived they had upgraded our room which was nice since it was our anniversary and they send up a bottle of champagne and chocolates which was so sweet of them!! It was such a lovely surprise. The front desk staff were awesome and very attentive! The rooftop views and pool were awesome!!

Good value for money
To start with the positives, this hotel has a really nice vibe. The communal areas are all well decorated, and the staff are friendly. The food and drinks in the restaurant and the rooftop pool bar are high quality and there are options to suit all budgets. Breakfast on the other hand was a little bit of a let down. The location is not far from most tourist sites on foot but it also the surrounding area isn't anything special itself. The view of the acropolis from the rooftop is also amazing. In terms of downsides to this hotel, the standard bedrooms are definitely on the smaller than average size. There was very little storage for clothes and it was a tight squeeze in the bathroom. A little bit more attention to detail in cleaning could help. Our room had an obviously broken shower head from the day we arrived and it was just left that way (though, in their defence we never mentioned it; it should still have been noticed by a cleaner). My friends and I would recommend staying here but would suggest paying extra to stay in one of the superior rooms if possible.

Should apply for VIP membersip for long stays
We stayed for two weeks in November 2022 (check 13 December 2022 review) and another 9 nights now in April 2023. Staying at a hotel for so many days can be tiring, but that was not the case here. Our room was quite spacious with a balcony and the hotel had large communal areas including an amazing rooftop to enjoy the pool or have food and drinks. Our shower was leaking and was reported, but half fixed. Room door did not manually lock from the inside (broken lock) but it was swipe card access and probably not a big deal (not reported). Breakfast was also served on the top floor with great views across Athens. Breakfast has a lot of variety with many items made by good quality ingredients, but the hot food available becomes repetive very quickly. All 9 days breakfast was exactly the same (scrambled egges were sometimes swapped with omelette). Hotel is centrally located and you should expect some traffic noise but it is managable (didn't wake us up). Mataxourgeio metro station was located literally next door. Would we return? Keep the prices competive and yes we would.
