“Could be better”
Reviewed June 27, 2010

We selected this hotel because of the attractive price due to an offer from Yeego. General impression is positive but it could be better. Very helpful staff at reception and bar, We asked if it is possible to have a room with nice view and they searched and found. Our room was large with double bed, 32''TFT TV, and powerful air conditioning. Maybe the furniture and the bathroom need a renovation .. Cleanliness was OK -no complaints. The breakfast could be better and "richer" (basic were missing). There was available free WiFi in the lobby - it was charged at the roomt. It is located 10 minutes walking from Glyfada Square. Positive is that you can go for a swim in the beautiful beach which is about 500m distance. It is near a bus and tram station. I would recommend to a friend only if he found a room at a lower cost than the standard one because I believe it is expensive

is nearby, that is a fantastic thing! there is not a lot of other facilities nearby unless you walk to Glyfada itself, great to see the Coastal Tram making it's way along the coast, saves a great deal of time and is much better than using the bus.

the hotel itself is on a very noisy Poseidonos Ave, no way in the world could you sleep with the door open given the amount of traffic noise, the view of the Aegean was ok, would like to have been a little less obstructed, I guess the fact that the beach is 200m away makes up for that.

bed was not bad, but the base looked rather old and tatty, I probably would stay again, it is Greece and you can't expect too much given the current situation.

all up, fairly decent hotel with just enough basic amenities to see you thru.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staffs were friendly, helpful and spoke excellent English, the rooms while not spacious were really clean with lovely views of the sea and the food was really really good. We had breakfast which usually for Greece was both hot and cold and we really enjoyed the dinners which tasted like home cooking. It is a short walk to the beach which is OK not the best in Greece it has to be said however the sunsets were just wonderful.
It is just across the road from the tram and the bus stop is just outside.
We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in Athens with good food and clean rooms.
We had free wifi which worked in the rooms well.

A very decent hotel... very friendly staff... good breakfast... wi-fi access (paid) and just a couple of minutes away from a pebbly/sandy beach.
However, located between two service stations, in a VERY busy road where drivers seem to have their feet go numb on the gas pedal. The town centre is around 30mins walk away... and that's where all the restaurants and shops are.
I'd still recommend the hotel as it's good value for money ... paid only €60/night for a non-seaview room. Had a balcony overlooking the street - wasn't wise to open it for long as exhaust goes right in even up to the 4th floor. Balcony doors are virtually sound proof too... so that's a plus.

With a helpful and polite staf at the front desk, the hotel situated not far from the beach you would expect a pleasant stay.. As soon as you enter the room you realize just how wrong you are. We payed 150 euros for a sweet that brought us to a smelly bathroom (canalisation trouble I guess) with tiny and uncomfortable bed.. not to mention the tasteless arrangement of the room itself which by the way has nothing to do with the one portraid on the picture.
The constent noise of traffic coming over from the nearby road does not let you relax in your pathetic little room. And don't even think of getting more out of the minibar then 2 small bottles of water...

It is hard to find it, especially when u go by airport bus X96. The location is quite ok, i didnt care about the very loudy road, i got used to it my city. Room big enough with balcony and great bathroom. Room quite clean, comfortable beds, LCD, A/C and so on. Curtains very dirty. Very small elevator especially for tourists with luggage. A huge plus for breakfast, so tasty in a beautiful room. Minus is that there is no shop close to the hotel, u have to go about 3 tram stops to center of Glyfada where u can find some shops.
