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

We had a great time staying in The Congo Palace Hotel. We stayed for 10 nights. The room was comfortable maybe not quite what we would expect as 4**** by Irish standards. The double bed was two twin beds pushed together. What really made it was the staff at all levels was superb everyone was so helpful and friendly. There... More

Lobby, Stairs, and Breakfast room were a warm welcome. Breakfast was great. And that was about it. Rooms were way outdated and old, paint peeling, we had cockroaches on our room, loud noises in our room and WiFi that didn't work along with numerous other things. It would be ok for a night sleep but I don't think I would... More

Good rates but a bit basic and old fashioned. Not much style with big halls and rushed service, with plates serviced minutes appart and drinks not offered. Good for a big meeting where you want to save costs. There is a great seaside bar a short walk away.

I stayed here for 2 nights while in Athens on business. The service was great as was the breakfast. The main hotel lobby, dining room and communal areas were clean and tasteful and the rooms, although a little dated, were very clean and the bed was comfortable. Just 2 issues - I requested non smoking but the room smelt strongly... More

I stayed in October 2014 for 2 nights. I was dubious after reading some reviews but was very pleasantly surprised when I checked in. The gentleman who checked me in was very friendly and accommodating, ensuring my car was parked in the right spot away from passing traffic. I was provided with internet vouchers for my laptop and additional ones... More

Upon arrival I knew I chose a great hotel. Greeted with a smile and a warm welcome from the receptionist, who was very polite and friendly. Lobby reception was spotless, with couches bar and restrooms conveniently accessible. Two large elevators to choose from that took us up to the third floor. A quiet lounge on the third floor was also... More
