My family and I have stayed at this hotel for many years. It has great memories. It is close to the beach and town. The pool area is great with lots of sunbeds and a quick walkway out to the town. The food was good and the beds were very comfy.

This hotel is extremely well managed and the staff were very helpful. The hotel was clean, the room was big, breakfast was great and the pool was lovely and quiet even though we visited in the busiest holiday period. The hotel was easily accessed using the X96 bus from the airport, costing less that 5 euros. The hotel is located... More

The lobby is deceivingly nice. Once you go upstairs, the rooms are very disappointing. There was no shower curtain in our bathroom and the decor was odd. What's weirder is decor varies by floor, getting newer and nicer each floor. Nice pool.

Pricy with incompetent staff. I wouldn't recomend it. Only If the price was close to 70€ I would go again. At one point a member of the staff asked us to leave from the breakfast table. It was 11 and the breakfast was closing at 10.30. And it wasn't very nice either.

I came with a group of 52 college students studying abroad and this first hotel was a great place. The staff was so kind and patient towards all of us. The breakfast is AMAZING! They have chocolate crepes, eggs, toast, juices, coffee, and so much more. The location is great! There is a bunch of shopping around and great restaurants... More

Nicely placed in the center of Glyfada city,close to restaurants,shops,beaches and nightlife,but expensive for what it offers especially during summer season.Could be more affordable,while the reception looks very nice,not the same for the rooms.

Public area is quite good. Service is also OK. But, everything else is terrible. Room for 4 person had no single chair, no table. No lights in the first room. Breakfast was poor. It is typical for greek hotels to be presented with beautiful pictures (probably corrected with Photo Shop),while in reality little of this is true, but in case... More

When you view the website of the Congo Palace you think wow - what a place for the price. The reality was different and if a hotel in the UK had such a different website from reality they would be done under the trade descriptions act. You walk into the foyer and you think this is good for the price.... More
