We, a couple in our early twenties, were very satisfied with our trip. We momentarily wanted to go back.
Very nice hotel with friendly, humorous and helpful staff. I asked a lot of questions about the area around the hotel and how to get to different sorts of activities, and they were always helpful. At one occasion I wanted a San Francisco drink, but no one had heard of it (soon found out that it was not very common in the Athens). So the employee improvised after my description and made me one! The "Red Drink" it was called afterwards. The bar and pool area are really beautiful and a place to relax. Bar is formed like a little hut and is really cozy. A nice, little hotel with a lovely atmosphere. One of the employees even noticed I had a haircut and complimented me for it.
The hotel lies right next to "everything". The centre of Glyfada is about five minutes of walking from the hotel, and the beach is just one hundred metres from the hotel. The tram station is also about a hundred metres away, and for 1,20 euros you can easily go nearly anywhere. The tram goes to the centre of Athens, which is about 14 kilometres away. Here you can visit the Acropolis and all of the other beautiful pieces of history the city has to offer. I would recommend Athens Walking Tours if you want a guided trip.
I would also recommend to go to Piraeus (where the coast line of Athens is), and visit one of the islands. There are many departures each day, and it's up to you how long time you want to spend on the island. You can spend the day, a few hours or several days. There are also companies who offer organized trips. If you want to go to a fancy beach and have a swim, Voula beach is just 3 kilometres away with the tram. Glyfada beach is also nice, but a bit stony and quite small. Though, there are two fancy beach bars there!
