This three-star hotel offers comfortable accommodation, an excellent location, and very nice views of the Acropolis, Lycabettus Hill, and a lovely park very near to the hotel.
The Balaskas features an excellent restaurant and a comfy bar, has a public lounge with television and a lovely terrace on the roof with superb views of the city and of the sea.
This is a simple, yet very comfortable hotel in a good location.
Bedford Girls’ School, April 2019I cannot think of any improvement to suggest. Would like to mention how brilliant your staff have been throughout all the planning period. They always listened and tried to find a solution to all our requests even though some of them were made at a very late stage and all communication was excellent. We are delighted and will definitely book out next trip with Halsbury.
