“Best wedding party ever!!!”
Reviewed May 7, 2011

My best friend got married a few months ago and had her wedding party at Congo palace. When I arrived there I was trully amazed by the wonderful decoration. The party was organized perfecty and the staff was really friendly. Also, I was impressed by the menu and the kindness of the catering staff. The music was joyful and I still remember the dance we had! We had such a great time that I'm thinking seriously having MY wedding party at Congo Palace Hotel!!!

Had my wedding reception in Congo Palace and stayed at the suite at night. The organization of the whole reception was perfect, everything worked so fine, The hotel personnel was constantly in touch with me the days before and helped me having no doubts at all about the success of my big night.

We stayed there last summer during our visit in athens. It is a very clean hotel and value for money considering that you are close to the city's centre but you have the sea in your sight and you can go out to the south suburbs of the city which have several options for night life..

Good value hotel at circa 85 Eur a night for a family room that was infact 2 separate rooms, and included a free cooked breakfast and wifi! Occupied mainly by Greeks it had 2 weddings during stay indicating it was popular. Can't say rooms were plush but they were perfectly OK, and cleaned properly everyday

Noted the busy road comments left by others- irelevent - it was no busier than any other hotel on a main road and you crossed when the traffic lights turned red . Glyfadia is nice area pleantly of restuarants quiet obviously in October but must be heaving in summer.

Beaches are nice, - you would use them more than the pool - 3.5 Eur at beach for a sun lounger all day. Tram to centre 200m walk / 50 min travel and frequent. Taxi to centre about 25 eur. BUT 3 eur for all day travel on tram including use of metro/underground. Main museums very cheap / free .the time to visit would be spring and autumn because of the heat in summer.

X96 aitport bus dropped off at door for 3.2 Eur per person.

Overall very happy with hotel and staff, For teenagers wanting the beach and parents wanting the option of something else - an ideal choice.

This hotel is a great price considering the area. The lobby is deceiving - because the rooms arent as nice as the lobby. Beds were terrible & so were the pillows. Service is lacking. Breakfast was so so. Most of the staff are miserable. Free internet in the rooms - which was convenient. Not sure if we'd stay again. The price was right but we hardly slept because the beds were so uncomfortable.

We stayed at Congo Palace for two nights on the 12th of June. A friend of mine was getting married, and booked lots of rooms at this hotel. Our room was spacious and looked over at the pool side, which prooved to be quite good, keeping in mind that the front road of the hotel is extremely busy, therefore noisy.

The room was nothing extraordinary special, it was a nice , spacious, clean room.
Would I go there again? Yes, I would , but not if the prices were the ones provided at the door of the room, the official rates that is. We actually had a pretty good price, since there were lots of rooms booked for the wedding.

The stuff was pretty helpfull though, and this is a main pro.

We chose the Congo Palace because we had a 0940 flight out of ATH and it was only a 25 minute car ride to the airport. The Airport Express bus also stops just in front of the hotel and the Tram into Syntagma Square in downtown Athens is only 2 blocks from the hotel. I wasn't expecting much from the Congo Palace so I was pleasantly surprised that it was a very decent hotel. The only problem we had was the original room we were assigned had an A/C unit that was louder than a Boeing 747. We were courteously assigned to another room and that proved fine. The bathroom was large and clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was average and while we didn't use it, the swimming pool looked inviting. The tram to Athens is 1 Euro per person and takes an hour to get to Syntagma Square. There was a laptop and printer just off the lobby that was free to use and print boarding passes. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the room for two with breakfast was only $85. A very nice surprise!
