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

The place was nice. Great value for money. Staff were very friendly. No free wifi except next to the pool. Location is amazing. Next to a lot if shopping centers, restaurants and bars. Good beaches near by. We went to south coast beach which was less than 1 km away

We stayed here because it was recommended by a local, and needed a place to stay as our plans changed last minute. The reception staff was very professional & cleaning staff was very polite. The staff at the pool we found rude--the young woman towel attendant was taking towels back at precisely 6:30 when people were still in the pool.... More

This place bills itself as 4 stars, but it is not. To be fair, 70€/night in summer is more of a budget price. I ended up here because of the location in Glyfada and, as my other choice was booked, I needed to grab a room. From Congo Palace, you can readily navigate to the beach (public or private), walk...

We booked this hotel at the last minute for the last few nights of our vacation. This was the only hotel we did not check on Trip Advisor before booking as we hadn't decided whether we wanted to go back to Athens. As a consequence, we were somewhat disappointed. We wanted to be near the sea and had been advised... More

The staff in this hotel are fighting an up hill battle to sell something not worthy of Glyfada. Staff were helpful but after being shown 3 rooms we decided not to stay. Carpets, walls dirty. Needs total revamp. Foyer updated and gives false impression on website. Would not recommend in this condition.Forfeited one nights accommodation .
