The only great thing about the hotel was the lady who was in charge of breakfast as well as the selection on offer otherwise never again.The breakfast was great, the rooftop bar very student college type. Overall for the price too expensive for what you get, wifi not available in rooms, smelly room and this was a panoramic. Would not visit again.

I stayed here as part of my tour and everything was fine. Some of the staff running the restaurant were quite rude to me and my fellow tour mates but it may have been lost in translation sometimes. The shower could have been better with a higher base and longer shower curtain to prevent flooding and many twin rooms that weren't for a couple and were for friends has single beds pushed together to make a twin which was frustrating. All in all though, it was a nice place to stay with lovely gentlemen helping with bags which I was exceedingly grateful for. Warning though - don't go to the taverna across the street that is a part of their hotel. Extra charges on the bill, slow service and exceedingly average food.

Our trip to this hotel after booking started with a few emails which were dealt with in a prompt and timely manner which was very impressive considering the fact that the hotel was always full as we discovered on arrival.
We were welcomed on arrival by Dimitris the night shift reception staff with a smile, he was very happy to answer our questions and gave us all the information we needed for our early morning journey into town as we had an important appointment.

Breakfast in the morning could not be any better with a wide variety available from cold to cooked, pancakes, cereals, fruits etc we could not have asked for a better breakfast.

The hotel is located just opposite the beach with amazing views, with easily accessible transport links into the city center via the tram and the airport via bus 96.

Elissavet at the lounge was ever smiling and happy to help, while Giogros at the rooftop restaurant was ever so friendly and never forgot a face.

We had one complain about the television set in our room and before we could blink an eyelid the technicians were on it.

Having said all of the above i think the management should change the television sets in the room into LED TV sets.

We had a great time and will recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Athina.

Hotel is actually near a tram stop, which is very handy to head downtown.
Staff weren't that friendly! booked a two night stay with breakfast, missed my flight to Athens, when I finally got there they said i couldn't get any credit.. and the next morning had to fly out (@5am).. didnt eat breakfast either.
so I lost money either way, the least they could of done was to give me some credit! or an early breakfast!

Very good hotel for the sailors renting a boat at Kalamaki Marina. Not expensive, clean, very friendly staff. There is a good connection both to the city of Athens and to the airport. Good beach restaurant, roof pool, bar. Some noise from the traffic.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a senior suite.

This hotel gives you the best of both worlds; the beach is not the finest but is right outside the door where there is also a bar and a basic restaurant. The pool on the roof is great and affords terrific views. Easy access from a tram stop in front of the building to Athens centre or Pireus port or ultimately the airport although a taxi will cost €35 and is so much easier. The hotel rooms are small but adequate. Apart from the beach being shingle rather than sand the other draw back is the prices for drinks. You're best going to a bar or the kiosk outside or the supermarket next door. Overall though ideal if you want to mix a beach/pool holiday with the ancient wonders of Athens

Situated right on the beach with a tram stop at the entrance - The hotel is a bit old, but the rooms are very clean and the staff are very helpful. We had the breakfast buffet included in our room rate and it was an impressive spread. There is a nice beach across the road with several restaurants serving authentic Greek seafood. Rooftop pool & bar with some good views - for the price, we were very happy with this hotel.
