The hotel is located in Glyfada, very close to tram and bus stops but one hour away from athens city centre. There are many shops, restaurants and bars in the area and a supermaket. Both public and private beaches within walking distance. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly (they took time to help us as often as we... More

Our first impression of Athens as a city was when we checked into the Golden Sun Hotel in Glyfada, Athens. We were certainly not dissapointed as the staff took great care of us with loads of advice and recommendations. Tram stop is nearby in a hip part of Athens and not too crowed. Tram ride into the city is cheap,... More

Wow! I must have stayed in a different establishment to tom below. My wife and I had a week at the Golden Sun in late May. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I agree the beds are firm but we were given a mattress topper after we mentioned this fact and that made a great difference. We enjoyed the breakfasts and must say... More

The hotel staff seemed nice to begin with but as the days went on we realised that they were surly and intrusive. We stayed in the junior suite which was spacious and clean, however the bed felt like concrete and we could have slept better on the floor. The breakfast selection was great and the quality was above average. However,... More

For the price this is a great hotel in a very "local" location in upmarket Glyfada. The reception staff, and pool stuff are extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel is nearby several popular local managed beaches (although the best are a little further out of town) It is however obvious this hotel hasn't really been updated since the 80s...

The Hotel was nice it is in a really nice location close to the beach and shopping. The staff was great some of the most friendly helpful girls I have ever met they all deserve a raise! Breakfast was included and really good for continental. The only complaint would be the beds and pillows they could definitely be replaced

The ladies on the staff here are so helpful. Especially Irene. The men not so much, more hit and miss. Sometimes we would get a tea pot with breakfast other times we would be told were we can make tea. That followed through the hotel experience. The young lady at the bar was always cheerful in giving us ice, the... More

I stayed at this hotel while traveling to Greece for a wedding with friends. The hotel's furniture is extremely outdated and has clearly not been updated in decades. However, it was very clean with a nice sided bathroom. Each room seemed to have a balcony which was also very nice. It is within easy walking distance to anywhere you want... More

Changed to this hotel after having stayed two nights in a hotel that did not quite live up to our expectations. We were very happy with the Golden Sun Hotel. The ladies both in the reception and in the breakfast room were very helpful and positive. We had a room on the top floor with a fine view to the... More
