“This is not a 4* hotel...”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Reserved a non-smoking room (according to reception, all roomsa are non-smoking) but found an ashtray and there was a terrible smell of smoke. The same in my friends room...
Windows are not soundproof at all, balcony door barely closes and there is a noisy, busy street out there.
It was also very warm in the room and I turned on the AC but it made the room even hotter!
Breakfast was also not good and the "juices" were not drinkable :(

I am travelling to Greece since 2009 , in different season, and I had possibility to visit several hotels in that area:
1) holiday inn
2) The Athens Gate Hotel
3) Elefsina hotel

I always found Zafolia the best compromise between quality, service and cost.
Room in the backyard are quite, there is a gym almost always opened and in the summer there is also a swimming pool.
Receptionist are very kind and always professionals.

Room Tip: For quite room please ask for backyard ones

Overall a good, clean hotel but the friendly and helpful front desk staff who acted as a concierge made this hotel memorable. An out-of-the-way hotel from city-central but within easy walking distance to the Athens National Museum -- which is a "must-see" attraction. Across the street of the hotel is a one-block street of casual restaurants -- try the take-out at the corner. Local families go there for the gyros. You can sit at one of the outdoor tables across from the restaurants. Spacious room, comfortable lobby and lovely breakfast options.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room on a higher floor and our request was met with minimum fuss.

Stayed for 5 nights. Its on Leoforos Alexandras which is a busy street. Metro station is 10 minutes walk. 5 minute cab ride to all sightseeing landmarks in Athens. The service was phenomenal, the entire staff was professional and went out of their way for us. The pool deck was really cool...served great coffee and lunch. They have underground parking but I found spots on side streets pretty easy when I needed to.

Pros -
super clean
great staff
pool deck
parking
location
10 minute walk to metro
short cab ride to sightseeing destinations
supermarket across the street
excellent bakery across the street

Cons -
tv channels suck
busy street
not a lot of great restaurants within walking distance

I had great time in Zafolia hotel, visiting Athens for business and holidays. Everything was great. Clean rooms, soundproofed, excellent service and next to the city centre of Athens. Something more than 4 star hotel

Room Tip: Expensive hotel but you will receive excellent service. No complaints at all

Reviewed 27 December 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 9 nights, it is on a busy road however Zoi in Reception gave us a room at the back that was very very quiet and comfortable. Zoi was exceptionally friendly and helpful, and I must say everyone on the staff at this Zafolia hotel was very welcoming. Rooms are very spacious and modern, cleaned every day, bathrooms are well equipped and large in size. All the hotel staff are working very hard to accommodate their guests' wishes and make them feel at home. Breakfast is good too with a variety of choice.
The Athens city centre is just a 30 minutes walk down Ippocratus street, alternatively there is the bus stop right in front of the hotel and also Ambelokipi tube station is just a 10 minutes walk from the hotel. We will definitely stay at this hotel again and we have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who visits Athens.

Room Tip: room at the back of the hotel is quieter

Good location, very clean, friendly and helpful staff, excellent service, comfortable rooms, good breakfast and excellent value for money. The bar tender makes the best margaritas. The parking area is very convenient.

Room Tip: Ask for a front room. It is a little noisy but it has a view to Lycabetus.
