The Golden Sun Hotel is convenient because it is about 25 minutes from the airport via the airport 96X bus which costs only 5 euro. After getting off at the Pikpa bus stop, you cross the street and the hotel is about 30 feet on the same side of the stop. The area is a quiet residential area and borders... More

The Golden Sun Hotel in Glyfada is located very close to the bus stop "pikpa" whre the airport bus stops. So it is easy to get there. To be sure you should ask the driver to tell you when to get off. The bus we took had no sign anouncing the name of the next stop (well: it did have... More

The hotel was nice, has a decent pool and is close to the beach and the reception girls were all very pleasant and helpful, all that you could want. Glyfada, on the other hand, is pretty awful. If you are impressed by boutiques and named brands, then it's the place for you. If, however, you are more interested in authentic... More

Just returning from a few days business in the Glyfada region of Athens. The Golden Sun Hotel is in a great location close to the center, and if you have the time, only 5 minutes from the beach. Staff were very friendly and the room spotlessly clean. Would recommend with no hesitation

Hotel staff advised us to board express bus from Athens International Airport for a 35 minute ride to hotel - only 5 Euros per person! Bus stop is at the front of the Hotel. Hotel location couldn't be better - short walk to shopping and restaurant precinct and the beach! Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay... More

We arrived in Athens too late to head on to our chosen island. Picked this hotel at random as it was on the way to Piraeus, glad we did. Although the room was on the first floor, it wasn't too noisy. Clean and tidy if not a bit dated in the decor. Nothing was too much trouble for any of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and found the location to be fantastic. If ur coming in to Glyfada by tram then it's a 5-10min walk away and very direct. It is walking distance to the shopping area and restaurants and of course the beach! The hotel itself is in desperate need if updating and feels like a 70's hotel.... More
