The hotel location is right by the main shopping area at Glyfada and some sumptuous, quality restaurants are dotted all around the hotel. The rooms are a little tired but the a/c good. Temperamental Wi-Fi but really stable and strong in the main reception and lobby areas. In the week I was there nearly, the staff were second to none.... More

For the past 5 years I stay in Glyfada on my return home to RSA from a vacation in Zakynthos, and have tried 5 different hotels: not one deserves the rating they advertise! Whilst FOH at this hotel was good the room was terrible - small, dirty carpets, stale odour and limited cupboard space. Will try another next year!

The hotel location is perfect, the main shopping area at Glyfada and the restaurants is around the hotel, the room size is good, a little bit old hotel, the rooms is clean, poor breakfast, nice staff and helpful. I stayed 2 times at this hotel and the main reason is the location and the hotel price per night. I can... More

I have been to glyfada before so I wanted to take my friends and show them all the beautiful places I had been to. I booked this hotel for 4 of us as it was recommended to me. When we arrived the lobby was beautiful, however the man at the front desk wasn't really that helpful. He didn't tell us... More

We went here on a business trip in June 2015 and was slightly set back upon arriving. From the lobby it looks amazing and very classy, but upon locking into the room it's clear that this has not been updated for quite some time. The space is alright and you have a decent size bathroom and a tub, but it... More

The hotel is very centrally located as you can easily take the tram into Athens or a taxi anywhere. The lobby and pool area are very nicely decorated and clean, but that's not consistent throughout the hotel. It appears that they're renovating rooms as every floor you go up looks a little less dated. The rooms are old and look... More

Glyfada is a great location. Excellent nearby restaurants and cafes, handy to both the airport and the wharf for island ferries. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated, with a balcony overlooking the sea across the road. There is a restaurant and lovely pool area. A good well priced base for a short Athens stay or to explore the Athens... More
