“Clean hotel & great staff but very far from 4 Star?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

I stayed in this hotel about two weeks ago. I found that the hotel held a very high standard in cleanliness and the staff were efficient and courteous but was disappointed with the standard of food offered in light of the star rating the hotel advertises on its website. The hotel is listed as four star but in my mind would really only consider this hotel to be a good 2 start / decent 3 star at best. I was on a B&B deal and considering the great food you can get in Greece, I felt that the breakfast was disappointing, one example was the orange juice consisting of what seemed to be synthetic orange squash as opposed to actual orange juice and the buffet choice to be limited.

Room Tip: You are looking onto a busy motorway but are close to the tram and also bus routes into Athens city...

If you are looking for a relaxing drink on the balcony of an evening then this isn't the hotel for you. There is a large and very busy main road outside which remains busy day and night. The hotel is central so there is just a short walk into town. The room we had was quite small but very clean, the bathroom and bedding was spotless.
Drinks on the roof terrace are expensive, 7 euro for 2 cans of iced tea. Also worth noting the hotel hand book advises that food and drinks cannot be brought in from outside shops etc, we did taked canned drinks in and nothing was said.

Room Tip: Might be worth asking for a room nearer the rear of the hotel to hopefully cut down on traffic noise...

During our holiday in greece me and my wife stayed at Emmantina Hotel, It was a wonderful experience the food was great, the view from our hotel room was amazing and the staff were very courteous and friendly, they even went out of their way to arrange a trip of the historical sites and ensured we had an unforgetable experience of a lifetime. Looking forward to visit you guys again. Cheers to Emmantina Hotel.

On our return to the Greece mainland we chose to stay near the beach. This hotel was listed as a "beach" stay, nope. There is a 4 lane highway directly outside the hotel, cars are traveling at very high speeds and are loud. The noise from the traffic will penetrate the walls and glass of your room should you stay in a "sea view" room. The staff went out of their way to assist us in some computer/fax/printer work we had to do back in the states. I would give the hotel 3 stars if it weren't for the staff. Breakfast is complimentary and was very good, shopping is about 1/2 mile to the south where you will find a lot of modern stores, and restaurants. The bus line is also next to the hotel and will bring you to Athens, as well as the tram which is a few clicks towards the sea. The rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable, the bath tub is narrow so keeping your balance while showering can be challenging. I would stay there again, but I would choose a room near the back of the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the sea are quieter.

In my last visit in Athens i stayed to Emmantina. I was impressed by the service, the kindness of all hotel staff really makes you feel like home! The highlight is the roof garden, with great views and romantic sunset. We taste the traditional drink of Greece "ouzo" and we enjoy a lot of seafood, fresh and well cooked. All meals actually were delicious...compliments to your chef! The rooms are convenient, clean, quiet and comfortable, you can't ask for more. Around the hotel we found a lot of cafe's and night clubs..we enjoyed a lot Athens nightlife !!! Emmantina has a great location and is the correct choice for best value for money. Well Done guys!

Room Tip: Enjoy great views if you choose the rooms facing the road

I visited Athens both for pleasure and business. This hotel suits both purposes. Very close to the city center and all archaeological sites, near the sea and 10 minutes from the biggest port of Greece, Piraeus which i used to visit the islands of Aegean sea. Very clean, the staff was so helpful and kind. I also enjoyed the pool at the roof garden with the magnificent view. I will visit it again soon.

Room Tip: ask for front view

I stayed at the Emmantina hotel two times in the last two years and I was very satisfied with my stay.
the location is very good, some 20-30 minutes away from the airport and 20-30 minutes from the center of Athens, which was quite convenient because you can get easily "in and out" while staying in a quiet neighborhood. The beach is at walking distance (some 5 minutes), so it is possible to visit it a couple of times a day without too much walking effort.
The hotel as such is quite cosy, the rooms are visually pleasant and the beds are comfortable. If possible, ask for a room which isn't facing the front of the hotel, because there is a motorway in front of the hotel and it can get a bit noisy.
The food was great, but the best thing was the rooftop restaurant/bar with a great view, delicious coffee and comfy chairs.
The staff is OK, very professional with a charming Greek accent :)
The neighborhood is also nice, quiet and some 10 minutes away from the center of Glyfada where you can find many restaurants, bars and shops.
If in doubt, don't hesitate to book a room at the hotel. Unless you expect high luxury, you will be satisfied with your stay there, just as I was.
