The hotel is nice and clean. We were travelling with 2 small children as well with my parents and 2 cousins, who had their own rooms. We had a triple room that was a tad on the small size but easy to move about. My family mentioned that their rooms were not as spacious or nice as ours was. The bathroom is small with a shower over a small bath, however it was clean. The pool was big and wasn't very busy however I felt like we were always being watched and scrutinized while in the pool. The manager told me several times I had to watch my children even though there was a life guard on duty (who was very nice) and despite the fact my husband or mum & I were in the pool with both children. We decided to go for a swim in the afternoon after our morning swim and since we had already swam once that day we were denied a second pool towel as apparently there was not enough to go around. The wifi was good and the breakfast was not too bad.
The hotel is just off a main road however there is a set of lights to cross at to go to the tram so that was not an issue, even with 2 small children. The Tram was easy to use once we knew what stop to get off as you can not see the hotel from the tram stop and the hotel website does not advise which stop to get off at. The hotel is 2 or 3 stops away from the main area of Glyfada which has plenty of shops and restaurants and nightlife. The hotel did not offer much in the way of food from what we could tell so it is wise to go into Glyfada to eat. You can also catch it to Voula Beach which is a nice area. On the main road there are also buses that can take you into Athens, further down the coast and to the airport.
All in all it was a nice & clean hotel and was good for the price. Not too sure if I would stay there again simple because it was a bit out of the way and I felt like we were always being watched.
