“Great value for the price we paid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We went to Athens for a wedding, stayed 3 nights in this hotel and it was great location for us and at a very reasonable price (which included the breakfast).
The hotel is at:
- 35-40 min by bus from the airport (5.8 Euro for two tickets) or Euro 35-40 by taxi.
- 5 minutes walk from the Glyfada shopping area, 7-10 min from restaurants/bars.
The rooms were simple, clean, decent size, renovated bathrooms, at 3rd and 4th floor you get a see view (not full as there are a few buildings in front obstructing it). One thing I discovered only during the second day is that the balcony had direct view to the hall way so not much privacy.
There is a rooftop pool, if you get up later you will have to wait for towels, and may not find a sun bed in a busy weekend day.

The staff was very helpful, friendly. If you need an ironing board and an iron make sure you speak to reception way in advance as there is only one for tourists and other people might have booked it already

The entire experience was very pleasant.

Room Tip: 3rd and 4th floor if you want some sea view, and also avoid to be in the rooms at the end of the hal...

Stayed here with family in May. Great hotel, friendly, helpful and welcoming staff, a short walk to beach & Glyfada. Weather was great, 28/30 degrees for most of the week. Good food and plenty of it. Would recommend a room towards the back of the hotel as the motorway is noisy! Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back are less noisy but rooms to the front have sea views.

Stayed here with a large tour group in July. The lobby is nice--didn't charge for wi-fi. Breakfast buffet was the best of our trip--many options. Rooms were simple, not fancy, but bathrooms were newly redone and nice. Rooftop pool isn't huge but it was clean and refreshing. Lawn chairs out by the roof bar to soak in sun and friendly bartender. Can also order food on rooftop, where you can view the sea. Another plus was walking only a couple blocks to many restaurants and nice shops.

Front desk lady was sooooooo nice and helped me out after I bought 2 left shoes on a Greek Island! She called them and a store in Athens, got them to replace the wrong shoe, drew out my route on a map, etc.--just went above and beyond!

Negatives? Hard bed if you prefer soft. It is RIGHT on the very busy,highway--so dangerous to cross or even get out of a cab! However, I could NOT hear the highway from my room at all. Double doors on the verandah do the trick. Not a great view from any room unless you are on top and can view the sea.

Superbly helpful staff in a comfortable and air conditioned hotel.
Good food in the restaurant at lunch and dinner. Breakfast gave a great choice.
Pool bar & pool on the roof is great, especially good watching the sunset.
Tram service runs nearby for access to central Athens.
Would be very happy to stay there again

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the back of the hotel, from the road. Higher floors for better views.

The hotel is clean and well worth the price. Staff are friendly. Rooms are not very modern and some furniture are not to the European standard but it is acceptable if you are in a beach holiday.
The bar on the roof is nice place to relax if it is not too hot or too cold. It has plastic clear curtains so you can enjoy it even when it raining. Bartenders are warm and funny.
Internet connection is not very good but again if you are in holiday you can live with it.
Beach is within 10 minutes of pleasant walk in green valleys.
Don't miss the nice restaurant near the beach. It is 15 minutes walk along the beach from where the hotel is, towards the West.
You can go to the city by tram and it takes 45 minutes to reach city center where all the beautiful historical sites are.
You can come and go back to airport by bus.
both bus and tram stations are within minutes to the hotel.
There are lots of bars and restaurants in Glyfada center which is 5 minutes walk form the hotel to the East.
If you take rooms with sea view, be careful as the street in front of the hotel is busy all night and the cars are quite noisy.
If you cross the street be sure you cross when the designated area is. Poeple do not drive live other places in Greece.

Room Tip: Rooms facing West are less noisy as they are far from street but you still have the sea view.

Very noisy rooms with old cheap furniture painted with cold grey colours that makes you feel uncomfortable. Not only the high way traffic will not allow you to sleep but also the room maids that started talking loud every morning at 7:00. Reception did not pay any attention to our complaints. Bathroom was nice. Drinks and internet was very expensive. Hotel staff was not friendly at all apart from the polite barman. Breakfast was very poor and of a bad quality, dinner was awful. Restaurant was dirty in general. This is one of the worst hotels i have ever been.

This is good hotel with a very good price. Room and bathroom are clean. Food is ok, and hotel is near the sea. It is located on the main road from Glyfada to Pireus, so it is a bit loud, but not too much. I've stayed in this hotel few times over the past few years and the impression was the same. It is at the walking distance (10 minutes) from the center of Glyfada. Tram station is just a few minutes away.
