The behemoth-size Divani Caravel is a luxury chain property that has 471 rooms, 42 suites, and two presidential suites, and offers gorgeous panoramic views of the Acropolis. Located close to the Kolonaki district of Athens, the hotel is near art galleries, authentic Greek restaurants, shopping, and historical sights. The hotel is pleasant, with marble flooring in a spacious lobby, an outdoor heated swimming pool, and a large indoor spa. Rooms are fresh and lovely with tasteful artwork and creative lighting. But overall, the hotel lacks a “wow” factor, and it could use an update. The ubiquitous office ceiling tiles and dark-brown furniture age the place. Visitors might want to check out the Royal Olympic Hotel, another luxury hotel nearby whose rates are generally lower.
