“Oh you are my first passenger to the Wyndham Grand this year”, said the taxidriver, when he drove me from Athens Airport to this centrical hotel at the beginning of June. “That’s really good news, it has been closed so long”. Indeed, many tourists will be happy that the central Five-Star-Hotel located next to Metaxourgio Station started to operate again. It is a great place to combine work and holiday in the heart of Athens. You can find very well designed work areas and an efficient conference centre.
Many of its 276 rooms offer a breathtaking view to the Acropolis. You can choose between city or Acropolis view, but the presidential suites offer both of them. The rooms with high speed Wifi are pleasant and clean, the staff is multilingual and extremely helpful, even arranging transfers and further bookings.
The breakfast is served at the rooftop in the ninth floor, where you can enjoy the most astonishing views all over the city while serving yourself at a sumptuous complementary buffet. A very inviting pool next to the rooftop bar helps you to cool off after long city walks. The Spa offers traditional Greek massage, but I did not really have time since Athens has so much to offer.
Conveniently located right next to Metaxourgeio metro station Wyndham Grand Athens hotel is the ideal starting point to explore every major attraction and significant landmarks within minutes. With 276 rooms and suites in 8 floors, Wyndham Grand Athens hotel offers a wide variety of brand new accommodations to suit single, couple or family needs for business or leisure travelers.
