We have stayed in this hotel several times, both in 2005 (two weeks) and 2010 (three weeks), and it is a very nice hotel with a perfect location in Glyfada. This hotel is a good choice if you want to combine a holyday with swimming and relax with the possibility to visit some of the great archelogical sites in the Athens area.
You can choose between a regular room with a separate bedroom or a room with a little kitchen (apartment).
The center of Athens is just a 15-25 minutes drive away with a taxi (20-30 euros),depending on the trafific, or about 45 minutes or so with the tram. The center of Glyfada with all it has to offer, is just a 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The rooms are clean and decent, but som of the bathrooms may need some renovation.
But there are a few things that you must be aware of:
The hotel is located on the coastal road -this is a highway with a lots of traffic 24\7. To get to the beach you have to cross this highway which can be risky from time to time. And never let the children try to do that on their own! The nearest beach will never win a contest for its beauty either, it is not like the beaches that you will find on the islands. But the hotel have a nice pool area so you dont have to go to the beach every day.But when you go to the center of Glyfada, you dont have to walk along the highway, there is a another smaller road you can use. But watch out for some wild and agressive dogs on this road! But hopefully the dog-problem is solved now, but it was a problem last year. If you are afraid of dogs, ask the hotel about this situation before you order.
When you place your order, ask for a room with a pool-view, than the noise from the traffic will not bother you and you can enjoy a bottle of wine on the balcony in peace and quiet (almost).
But all things considered, Oasis is a very good choice and we will definite come back for another visit.
