My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay at the Oasis. She appreciated the fact that the sofa in the living room area was relatively comfortable so she didn't have to share a bedroom with her wall-rattling, snoring dad. The room was very spacious and yes, it was very noisy with the patio doors open. This wasn't an issue for me because we kept them closed with the a/c on. There were some motorcycle racing wanna-bes going up and down the highway on occasion, but overall the noise level wasn't intrusive for us. The hallway carpets are well past their prime and stained, but the carpet in our room was in relatively good shape and clean, albeit in a color that seemed to have come from a 1970s remnant clearance sale.
Our main objective for staying in Glyfada was to relax a bit after touring Athens and Istanbul. There is a beach across the street, but there is a caveat. To get there, cross the highway (it can be busy, but we didn't have any problem getting across), walk two blocks down the side street & cross the tram tracks. The caveat for this beach is you cannot expect a pristine, white sand experience. There are a lot of rocks strewn on the beach, and if you go in the water, you will be walking on more rocks. Water shoes or waterproof sandals would be helpful. We were sketchy about it at first, but we ended up having a great time. The water was crystal clear, refreshing, and we just plopped our butts on the rocks and relaxed. Afterwards, we lounged in the beautiful pool area back at the hotel.
Overall, I consider this hotel to be an excellent value because it is inexpensive, offers lots of space, has a nice common area around the lobby, a great pool, includes a decent breakfast, and is well located. These assets more than made up for the rough edges and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.
