“Lovely atmosphere, close to everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013

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!

A very nice hotel where you can combine sea and beach rest with the museums and archeological sites of the Great City!
There is a good breakfast and dinner, cheerful staff, good cleaning, small but neat area with a bar and a swimming-pool.
Some disadventages include a noisy road (even in th enight) and absence of any beach facilities at the beach.

THE hotel is very very old . OWNER is only looking for MONEY. HE don't care about service of hotel and not make any update. ROOMS are not for 4 star hotel. I think owner forget what means 4 star !!!!!!
ACTUALLY this is a school student resident hall.
BUT they use it for hotel in high tourist season ( THAT'S why hotel open only for 6 month)
BREAKFAST are not good. . same things and also old food service everyday.
NO choice in restaurant . MEANS 4star hotel they don't have restaurant.
IT should be delete Greek tourist authority from 4 star hotel list.

Needed a place to stay in Athens for one night--found the Palmyra on Expedia and booked it, as it had decent reviews and the price was decent. The place was clean, included a decent breakfast, had a bathtub, AC, a short walk to shopping centers/restaurants. It was also a 2 minute walk to Glyfada Beach, where I experienced the best beach swim of my life. The water couldn't have been anymore perfect for swimming. The receptionist was very accommodating and helpful and even gave us a complimentary 1:30pm checkout so we could enjoy the beach before we left to go to the Athens airport. The airport bus (5 euros) could be caught from right outside the hotel--very convenient. I would definitely recommend.

The hotel is a little dated but perfect for a short trip - especially if you need to be based in Glyfada. The service in the hotel is excellent - very kind and accomodating. Unfortunately they don't have much variety for lunch or food, so if you miss breakfast expect only cheese sandwiches on offer! The pool is lovely and the iced coffee was great!
Their gym is tiny - so dont bother using it and go for a run along the beachfront instead if you want a workout.
Great area for good beaches. The hotel was also spotless and the housekeeping was so lovely! Always smiling and so very helpful. This is great value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room or pool facing. If you dont you could be facing the main road which is ver...

First of all, if you're looking for a rest, you have to either choose another hotel or make you you don't end up in a room on the avenue.

Rooms are acceptable, despite a mediocre bathroom.

The pool and bar areas are vary nice.

Food is ok although breakfast is a little bit disappointed.

The beach nearby the hotel is quite dull so there are chances that you'll stay by the pool.

Tram station is a couple of minutes walk,which is handy.

Certainly not a great hotel, but if you manage to get a good offer, it may be suitable depending the level of comfort expected.

The Palmyra Beach Hotel was a great find for us. Staff were all friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is lovely with a very good pool and beautiful garden area. Our room was simple and clean with a very comfortable bed. The bonus was the fantastic shower! Breakfast was typical. It is a two minute walk to the beach and a few minutes more take you to to the central area with restaurants, shops and cafes. Since it is on the Airport-Piraeus bus route it is very practical for anyone with a stopover.
We are already looking forward to our next visit.
