Amy Adejokun Section editor

Located on a private peninsula in the Vouliagmeni Bay, the Westin Athens forms part of the Astir Palace Resort complex. The latter also includes the Arion Resort & Spa, and the W Athens set to open in 2016. The complex covers a total of more than 74 acres. The Westin shares its facilities with the Arion Resort & Spa. Guests can therefore take advantage of the two hotels' facilities during their stay. The hotels are decorated in a contemporary and modern style with a stunning sea view.

    Location 3.34 /10

    Located between Attica and the Peloponnese in the Saronic Gulf, the Vouliagmeni Bay shelters the peninsula where the Westin Athens is found. The airport, the Acropolis and the port of Piraeus are all around 15 miles away, while the Temple of Poseidon and Cape Sounio are approximately 22 miles away.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The 162 guest rooms (including 9 suites) are divided into four categories: the Grand Deluxe Room (44m²), the Ambassador Suite (86m², located on the 3rd floor), the Excelsior Deluxe Suite (93m²) and the Imperial Suite (172m²). All of the guest rooms have a balcony overlooking the sea, the beach or the swimming pool. They are also all communicating rooms, except for the Excelsior and Imperial suites. The classic guest rooms are decorated in a contemporary style, in tones of mint green and blue. Take a minute to relish the comfort of the famous Westin trademark, the Heavenly® Bed with its lightweight duvet and the plump pillows. The shower and bathtub are separate in the bathrooms. In terms of amenities, nothing is missing: slippers, bathrobes, a hair-dryer, toiletries, a minibar, room service, air-conditioning, etc.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Although the facilities at the Westin are less extravagant than those at the Arion, the establishment nonetheless offers a high level of comfort. The architecture of the main building is not particularly appealing due to its slightly imposing aspect, but the interior decor is tasteful. A modern and contemporary style reigns supreme throughout. The hotel has a charming swimming pool area that directly overlooks the sea. The Olympic-size pool is surrounded by wooden deckchairs topped with comfortable cushions. Guests can cool down at the Blue Pool Bar without having to go far thanks to its location near the pool.
    The hotel does not have its own spa, but guests can use the Arion Spa. The spa area is very pleasant, and perfect for relaxation with its Zen atmosphere. However, the entry price is ?25 (£20) per person, not including treatments, few of which cost under ?100 (£78).

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The Kymata Restaurant is located just next to the swimming pool. It is open for breakfast (7:00am to 11:00am) and lunch (1:00pm to 6:00) but only serves light meals. Both Greek and international cuisine is served. For dinner, the Galazia Hytra places particular emphasis on regional cuisine. It is open from Sunday to Thursday from 7:30pm to midnight, and from Friday to Saturday from 7:30pm to half past midnight. Guests can quench their thirst at the Sofa Bar (10:00am to 2:00am) or head to the Blue Pool Bar by the pool for a cocktail or a snack between 10:00am and 8:00pm.
    Guests at the Westin can take advantage of the facilities at the Arion Resort & Spa. This includes the Alia Brasserie, which has been very tastefully decorated and emanates a cosy atmosphere. There is also the Il Tramonto for Italian dishes, the Matsuhisa Athens for Japanese dishes, and the Taverna 37 where Greek cuisine is served with fresh salads and grilled dishes. Lastly, the Alia Lounge Bar serves both refreshments and snacks.

    Beach 6.20 /10

    The beach is the Westin's weak point. Most of the seafront is fitted out with wooden sun lounges running along the sea. There is very little room left to actually walk on the sand. However, there is certainly no lack of wooden deckchairs or parasols. And the beach bar means guests can cool off without having to leave the beach. Water sports enthusiasts, on the other hand, will have to make their way to the water sports centre at the Arion Resort and Spa and pay an additional cost.

    To know

    Guests at the Westin can use the facilities at the Arion Resort and Spa at no additional charge.
    The hotel runs a kids' club for children ages 2 1/2 to 12 years old.
    The hotel is equipped to host business conferences. It has 6 conference rooms that can accommodate between 15 and 1,000 people.

      One of few hotels in mainland Greece that has earned an official star in the Easyvoyage classification. An achievement which deserves to be noted. Indeed, this hotel is outstanding; firstly, due to its location, at the foot of the Acropolis, and secondly for its modern and very pleasant architecture, decor and furnishing, making it a great place to visit to stay when visiting the Greek capital for a couple of days.

      The Plaka hotel offers excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and the decoration is modest. But you can especially take advantage of being literally at the gates of the beautiful district of Plaka with its army of small restaurants and busy streets open late at night, at the foot of the Acropolis. Finally, the luxury!

      The Plaza Hotel is part of the myriad small and affordable hotels that have mushroomed in the centre of Athens. They do not offer many amenities but allow travellers with a tight budget to find comfortable accommodation in the heart of the town as a stopover to set off, entirely on foot, to see all the major monuments. A great advantage for this town with suffocating traffic.

      Open since the 30s, the King George proudly sports the "Luxury Collection Hotel" label. This elegant establishment enjoys an exceptional location in the Plaka area. Unfortunately, it does not have much to offer in terms of facilities, but it is comfortable nevertheless. The hotel decor gives pride of place to various tones of beige which blend perfectly with the wooden furniture. The King George carries out regular renovations in order to keep the hotel at its best. The latest renovation work took place in 2013.

      The Electra Palace Athens is a pleasant hotel with charm. It is one of the best hotels in the Greek capital. The facilities are comfortable and the service level is very respectable. Its greatest attraction is its view over the Acropolis, under a mile's walk away. Its location in the Plaka district is also an asset - the moment you step outside of the hotel you are instantly immersed in the Greek atmosphere of the city.

      The NJV Athens Plaza is a comfortable hotel with a certain charm. Its facilities are well laid out and decorated, even though the standard guest rooms aren't to everyone's taste. Its lack of facilities is compensated by its agreement with a nearby club. Clearly the location at the heart of Athens is one of its main assets.

The main building's architecture is not particularly appealing from the outside but it contains a wealth of surprises inside.

      Open since the 1960s, the Arion Resort & Spa is named after the legendary poet. Its infrastructures were updated by architect Manolis Vourekas five years after its opening. At the time, it welcomed many famous guests, such as Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra, Jane Fonda, Jackie Onassis and Tony Blair. In 2004, the P. Masourides Company architecture firm and the Hirsch Bedner Associates interior design company carried out some major renovations. Their goal was to retain the establishment's classic style all while adding a touch of modernity. After it was re-opened in 2006, the Arion was welcomed into the Starwood Luxury Collection family. Today it belongs to the huge Astir Palace complex, like the Westin Athens and, in 2016, the W. The grounds extend over 74 acres on a private peninsula.
