Emmantina hotel is situated relatively close to the airport (~30min by taxi) and close to Glyfada town center, where there are a few restaurants and buses to various parts of Athens and the city center. Parking is available but very limited space, but that did not bother us as we relied on the public transportation. The hotel is near to some of the bars / night clubs in Glyfada.
The hotel is clean with friendly and helpful reception desk. Rooms are a bit small and WIFI connection was a bit slow when we were there. Breakfast is very basic but good to start off the day. However, the rooftop pool is quite nice (especially looking to the Ocean under Sunset).
Agree with other posts that the hotel may cater to large tourist / student groups. The two periods we stayed there (before/after we visited the islands) a group of high school / college students were there and were a bit rowdy in the pool / breakfast hall.
Overall if you don't mind the commute into Athens city center (~45min by bus, over an hour by the tram), it is a decent hotel choice, but would recommend to try to look for hotels closer to downtown first.
