London Hotel
Ranked #2 of 14 Hotels in Glyfada
Reviewed June 9, 2012

I had to stay in this hotel because there was nothing else available in the area. I had not high expectations, but I believe that for 180 EUR per night a much better service should be offered. The building is from the 70's with some basic refurbishments (new windows, carpets and painture, that's all)

Worse thing in London Hotel is the noise from the guests and from the street. Avoid rooms to the street if you intend to sleep without earplugs. My room was supposed to be a "see view", but it is actually in one lateral of the building, so I could not see the see, only another hotel.

Rooms are not thoroughly cleaned everyday. My last night I believe that the maid only made the bed. Bathroom and floors were forgotten, same for new towels.

The beaches in Glyfada are not good. I would recommend going to Vougliameni for a swim or relaxing day.

Only an overnight stop on way to airport. paid extra for a beautiful sea view/sunset on fourth floor. Room very clean and comfortable with all you need. Lobby a bit cafe looking and drinks at the bar were a bit pricey. Got caught up in the middle of a wedding so restaurant service on the slow side, but worth the wait, as it was superb at a reasonable price. Excellent breakfast to start the day. A bit further from centre than expected with not much around it. Bus stop to airport just outside (5 euros)Traffic noise at front of hotel.

Room Tip: Get a sea view a couple of floors up.

We stayed at London Hotel at the end of our trip to Greece. We arrived late at night back from our trip to the islands, We were so dissapointed. The hotel looks old and with poor maintenance. Basic and a little scruffy. Next to road and gas station, noisy at night. The lobby is not inviting and the restaruant very dark.
Goog points, beautiful view from balcony and Best Breakfast we got in Greece, fresh fruits, eggs, pastries, excellent.

Room Tip: We asked a room with sea view, together with the breakfast saved our stay.

The hotel itself is fine, but the noise from Poseidonos avenue (passes in front of the hotel) is quite strong; it's like you're close to a high speed highway.
It is very far from Athens center (approx.1h using the tram).

Hotel London was an absolute gem. Seated in Glyfada, just 20min or so outside central Athens, Hotel London is a quaint, family owned hotel. When we arrived we had a beautiful seaside room, incredibly friendly service from the concierge and a many enthrall long conversations. Their breakfast was satisfying, they booked all of our tours and taxis for us and were quick to help in any way that they could. Their restaurant also had great food, we ended up eating in far more than planned just to enjoy the lounge. Would absolutely stay here again. We also stayed at the four star hotel next door and found Hotel London to be far more satisfying!!!

Room Tip: Seaside rooms are well worth the request!!
