The rooms were a little old and dingy with stains on the carpet for example, but the beds were comfortable and they were always kept clean, just a little old and worn. Breakfast was quite nice, it was a western breakfast which was nice in Europe for a change.
The pool and bar were great and my friends and I had a great time swimming, sun baking and drinking. The drinks are a little pricier than the vendor across the street but that's to be expected.
I would only stay in this hotel for a short while and if I only wanted to relax at the beach or by the pool with a beverage. It is a 30 minute tram ride out of central Athens and there is little to nothing to do in the area except the beach. If you are visiting Athens for the ancient centre chose a hotel in the centre and stay at Poseidon for 1 or 2 nights max.
