The hotel in Athens should have originally been located within an easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions such as the Acropolis but was a long 35 min walk instead. Too far to stroll out on an evening to experience the restaurants and cafe culture in the city centre. Therefore the brochure and description were not true to what our expectations were and if we had been located with in eye dropping views of the acropolis, the holiday would have been so much better.
