“Good location to Athens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

We camped here for 2 nights in early September. The staff were extremely helpful, on check in we were given a pamphlet about the bus and train and she highlighted what we needed to know. She then gave us a map highlighting where the campsite is, train station and route the bus would take us to the train. She then went through the main attractions writing down opening times and told us the public transport tickets available! The location is great! There is a bus across the road that takes you to the main train station and your in Athens within minutes from there!

The bathroom facilities are plentiful and clean and there are many pitches under shade. The ground however was very hard and we were only able to get 8 of the 13 pegs into the ground for our tent. We saw many other tents in the same situation. The mini market is small but has the basics. There is a massive AB supermarket 500m from the campground (turn right from the entrance and follow along) however so you can get supplies. We didn't try the onsite restaurant as we are vegetarian and there looked to be little on offer for us, plus the prices weren't great.

The wifi only worked near the restaurant and market bit there were plenty of seats and tables and electrical points to charge there. They had the odd habit of hosing down the pavement in the restaurant area in the afternoon even if people were sitting there and they would literally flood the area with water so your feet would get soaked and it was awfully slippery. Also they charge €6 to use the washing machine, €4 for the dryer and €1 for powder! The dryer and powder I think is reasonable but €6 to wash clothes is the most I've paid anywhere in Europe!

The main thing to note however is the noise. It's on a very major road and the traffic noise is relentless. I come from a big city and im usually fairly easy going with respect to road noise but
I simply couldn't sleep well here. This is the first place on our travels where I've had to use my ear plugs.

Overall however it is a good campsite in a great location.

My husband and I camp everywhere we travel...and this site is great for being so close to the city. Although it does take about 45 mins to get into the city between bus and train..We loved it because it was quiet so you got out of the hussel and bussel of the city and the camp site is very well maintained...the facilities are clean...there is a nice pool. the people are very sweet. the camp sites are comfy with lots and lots and lots of shade...when we went it wasnt very crowded so we got a great spot. There are also supermarket and restruants about a 10 min walk down the road...would go back if I ever wanted to visit athens again!

For a city campsite, Camping Athens is very convenient with good transport links to the city, high levels of cleanliness and very helpful staff. However, it is situated next to a three lane motorway which makes it incredibly noisy and difficult to sleep. My advice is, perfect for budget accommodation but pack the ear plugs!

This is a good equiped camping with free wi-fi connection (ask for a password in reception), in reception you will get a free map of Athens and "manual" how to get to the town with the bus and metro. Tickets for the bus you can buy in camping shop, one ticket is for 90min I think, and it takes 20 min to get to the Syntagma square. The only problem here is the big road outside the camping - 24h noise, but it was a problem just first night.
