“Greek hospitality at its best!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

We were here for a wedding, along the coast, but used this hotel as our base. The hotel is in a quiet residential area and run by Olympia and her husband. All staff were friendly and helpful especially when the coach, due to take us to the church, for the wedding didn’t turn up. The lovely girl behind the desk organised a taxi for us and told the driver we needed to get there as soon as possible. Let’s just say, he didn’t dilly dally!

Room was very clean and functional with the added bonus of a safe. Whilst we were here, we had the dated TV replaced by a new flat screen TV. If you need an iron etc. just ask and they provide it.

Breakfast is buffet style and plentiful. You can even have fresh fruit which we didn’t find in other hotels.

Restaurants are only a 5/10 minute walk away but would highly recommend Tsi Tsi for good, fresh and cheap food.

For those of you who like to shop, there are plenty especially shoe shops. Heaven!

The tram (5mins walk) takes you into the centre within 50 minutes and is a great way to see the coast.

All in all a great stay. We will certainly return here again.

Room Tip: Upper floor. All have balconies.

We ended up in this hotel as a wedding was held nearby and it proved to be a perfect spot for exploring a little bit of Athens. It is a 5-minute walk to the nearest tram station and from there it is a pleasant 45-minute ride into Athens. The hotel is located in a well-to-do residential area, so safe at night and drinks in the garden at 1pm are no problem at all. Breakfast is a basic buffet which serves its purpose. If you wanted to hear some point of criticism it is that the bathroom is a touch small, but all in all a good place to stay for a good price too.

Room Tip: The hotel's rooms come with well working air conditioning and a balcony.

We stayed at Blue Sky for one night at the end of our 2 week vacation through Greece. We wanted to be closer to the airport for our morning flight, but didn't want to stay right at the airport. The location is great: close enough to downtown Glyfada (LOTS of action, restaurants, nightlife, shops, etc), close to the beach, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. The hotel is a 2* place, so don't expect The Four Seasons. It's priced accordingly, and they do a very good job at being helpful and keeping things clean and tidy. Think "dorm room" when booking. Perfectly adequate. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms have a little outdoor private area with a couple of chairs and a table. They've basically taken an older motel and done some simple upgrades (paint, new landscaping, new outdoor furniture and lounging spaces, etc) to make it quite nice. My only complaint is that the mattresses were uncomfortable. But other than that, this rating is excellent for a 2star hotel.

Room Tip: We liked room 105 which was near the front desk so it was convenient

Stayed in a few hotels in Greece and this one wasn't the best if I am honest.
However for the price it defiantly wasn't bad. Rooms were a good size just in need of a refurbishment really.
Small but nice and powerful shower.
Nice friendly staff. Fairly good run to the airport.
The seating are outside was a very relaxing environment.

Just back from ten days in Athens staying at the blue sky hotel in Glyfada a lovely little hotel in a quiet residential area. Short five minute walk to beach which is lovely costs 4 euro per person for the day lovely sun beds showers and water fountain
Hotel very clean and quiet clean towels and bedding every day breakfast good with cereal cold meats boiled eggs various bread and cakes jams etc and toaster to make toast. Drinks reasonably priced at hotel bar and owners and staff very friendly and polite.
Tram nearby takes about an hour to get to Athens lovely coastal route make sure you have change for machine in Glyfada fare is 1 euro 40 cents.
Would recommend hotel to anyone and Glyfada is ideal place to stay with loads of shops and tavernas

Put it this way , diamond hilton member , stay in top hotels.
Stayed here on Sunday for one night , lovely quiet location 5 mins to Glyfada shops and bars , cozy outside area to sit and have a beer. Rooms very basic but does the job if your on a budget , shower area very small. Good little bar and nice reception people. Hate paying top price in Athens for very basic hotels but this was worth it. Would stay again next time in Athens on business
