“Lovely Hotel”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for two nights whilst attending a friends wedding in Glyfada. The hotel is situated near the beach (over the main road) and also the main town centre. The X96 bus from the airport takes you pretty much outside the hotel which is just off the main road. And there is a tram stop about a 5 minute walk away.

The Rooms:
The rooms were a good standard, comfortable beds, TV and nicely decorated. The only negative I have is that there was no hairdryer in the room, but you were able to get one from the main reception.

The Pool:
The main drawback with the pool is that it is in the shade towards the end of the day, so when you were returning from the beach and wanted a swim you had to sit right in the far corner of the pool area to get any sun.

The Beach:
Fantastic, clean and very pretty, but you have to pay to get on to the beach. Most beaches in Greece are 'organised' beaches where you have to pay for sunbeds/umbrellas etc. I think it is €4 per person, but for this we got to use a sun lounger all day. The beach bar here is pretty amazing (although slightly pricey) and well worth a visit.

The Staff:
Could've been friendlier, but not really an issue.

Breakfast:
Probably not worth the money, was more like a light lunch.

Overall I would say this is a lovely hotel, great for couples but not very lively for singles/party animals!

Well, it's a good choice, in a good location, very nice lobby, new furniture, LCD TV...
The rooms and bathrooms are quite small, and not all the staff was helpful and nice.
We encountered some issues about the cleaning and the refrigerator, which stopped working daily. Finally got repaired or something, it worked 4 days from 6.
No hairdrier in the bathroom, no free WiFi (not for the cheaper rooms ~75 Euros/night), not so quiet, due to the pool down, under the rooms and the crowded street nearby.
Nice pool, but small area around it.
As a conclusion, counting the facts, the room rate and everything, the hotel is just a good choice.

This is not a big hotel. However, the location is excellent. Just across the road from a wonderful beach. The beach access is chargeable at 4 euros. Hotel's pool is small, breakfast is quite limited at the smallest of the restaurants I have seen. Service is good. Beach night club right across the hotel. The best is the room. Beautiful, minimal decoration with a private balcony.

Room Tip: Sea View Rooms are obviously better.

Love this hotel! Staff are great, location is perfect for beach, shopping, food, and transit. Request a room on the front side as you can enjoy shade all day on the balcony. Rooms not large, but adequate and very clean. The pool is an added bonus for a quick refresher...it's hot here and very humid. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed with my wife for 1 day in July 2012 and we were initially very happy with the hotel with regards to location and comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. Unfortunately we were unable to get a decent night sleep as the air condition was unable to cope with the hot summer temperatures so we were left to sleep in a sauna. The hotel staff were notified at 4:30am to see if there was a solution. Unfortunately their response was that due to our room being located on the 5th(top) floor the air-conditioning was unable to cool the room when it was very hot. We also notified the receptionist in the morning prior to checkout who wasn't too fussed.

Other issues involved the bathroom which had a whole in the floor which was covered by a loose tile and also there were exposed wires which were covered with clear sticky tape.

The staffed seemed to be aware of the problems with the room but unfortunately thought it was fine to rent out the room in such a poor state.

Luckily we found a great hotel around the corner.. the Golden Sun Hotel which was fantastic :)

I stayed with my wife for 7 days at this hotel. We arrived at midnight and the attention of the front desk clerk was great. The room was clean though small, especially the bathroom, if compare to our american standards. The breakfast was good and with many choice. The Wi-Fi was not free and we paid 9 euros for 24 cumulative hours which resulted convenient for our purposes. I have problems with the air conditioner and they gladly allowed us to move to other room.The hotel is located close to the beach, actually about a block away, and from the Glyfada downtown. There's a lot of restaurants and cafes to have lunch and diner at reasonable prices. It's worth to mention a gentlemen whose name is Dimitri who assisted us at the hotel at every moment.

Room Tip: Air conditioner is a need in Athens, especially in the summer. I found out that at this hotel the ro...
