The Blue Sky offers amazing value, though it is very well situated in the expensive leafy suburb of Glyfada, within easy reach of the airport by X96 bus. The road is quiet, (apart from what sounded like enormous crickets), yet within three or four blocks you are on the main street with some very smart shops and the wonderful tram line (1.20 euros into the city centre, 45 minutes). Then a further short walk takes you to a series of pleasant, uncrowded and unspoilt beaches. Stroll along to the livelier end and you find some really excellent and authentic Greek restaurants, bars and night life.
The English-speaking hotel staff could not have been more helpful and kind, going to a lot of trouble to research the next stage of the journey for my daughter - who was accommodated at the last minute in my room at no extra cost, except breakfast - what's more, when I left the owner allowed her to stay in our twin room at a very discounted rate as the hotel wasn't full. The room was ideal, clean and comfortable with a nice little balcony and efficient air conditioning. Breakfast buffet was plentiful (and the juicy peaches huge!) and could be taken on the terrace outside. Comforable sofas in the garden, surrounded by lovely flowers and rosemary bushes, were a good place to plan the day, and to meet up late in the evening with friendly neighbours who use the bar as a local, which adds to the delightful family atmosphere.
Can't recommend this charming little hotel highly enough - and we can't wait to go back!
