“Just perfect”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

when we arrived in athens we took a taxi from the port and went straight to the hotel. which we got a very warm welcome. and everything was correct as i booked over email which they were very prompt with their reply and acurate with their booking.
the rooms are very clean and a good size not too small but not big either. the hotel is very central, in glifada. walking distence to everything in glifada, and it has am amazing pool area and the breakfast is great, it has a big selection of food.
everything we asked for they were very helpful in providing us with info.
when we left they called a taxi for us.
our experience at this place was great. and we go often to glifada and definately will stay again.

Room Tip: clean, central, spacious

Quiet, clean and friendly. Rooms are clean, with daily service.
Breakfast buffet served generously although, always the same but still delicious.
Hotel location is perfect in Glyfada's downtown, very close to shops and restaurants.
Bus stop in front of hotel, tramway station 2 min walking, taking you to Athens in about 45 min along the coast and allowing you to see the different districts of Athens for less than 2 euros.
Public beach at few meters from the hotel but the dreams private beach, 10 min walking from hotel is perfect.
Hotel Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Sure we'll be back.

Our family of four stayed in Congo Palace for one night on our way to one of the Greek islands. Good location. There is a bus stop for Airport-Piraeus bus just at front of the hotel! The receptionist reminded more of a zombie rather than somebody serving customers, but we got an o.k. family room with a tiny balcony.
There is a beach and beach restaurants less than five minutes walk from the hotel, which of cours was nice. The hotel has a small pool as well. Lots of (posh) shops and restaurants next door in Glyfada.
Good value

This hotel is situated in a quiet district of Athens; just at walking distance from a nice and small sandy beach (however you need to cross a very busy street, a sort of highway to reach the beach). Room was good size, clean; the receptions were friendly. Breakfast was also OK, included in the room price. The neighbourhood is rather dull: except the beach, there is nothing nearby worth seeing for at lesat 2-3 km in both directions. There is a bus connecting the hotel to the airport and to the downtown and it drives so fast that I was feeling I were in the bumby-riding bus of Harry Potter. I would say it's an OK hotel for short stays if you find a good price for the night.

The hotel is in an awesome location. Staff were very helpful. Rooms though were very old. Pool needs severe updating.

We stayed at the Congo Palace Hotel for 10 days and were very impressed with the hotel. The rooms were kept very clean though they could probably do with updating. The road at the front is very noisy but we got used to this quickly. The view from the balcony at the front was very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay. We would certainly return to the hotel.
