“Good for the price”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

For the price this is a great hotel in a very "local" location in upmarket Glyfada.

The reception staff, and pool stuff are extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel is nearby several popular local managed beaches (although the best are a little further out of town)

It is however obvious this hotel hasn't really been updated since the 80s however at these prices and the great service one can't complain too much.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a Sea View

The Hotel was nice it is in a really nice location close to the beach and shopping.
The staff was great some of the most friendly helpful girls I have ever met they all deserve a raise!
Breakfast was included and really good for continental.
The only complaint would be the beds and pillows they could definitely be replaced

The ladies on the staff here are so helpful. Especially Irene. The men not so much, more hit and miss. Sometimes we would get a tea pot with breakfast other times we would be told were we can make tea. That followed through the hotel experience. The young lady at the bar was always cheerful in giving us ice, the man grudgingly gave us a small portion.

The tram to Athens was close by. Pro easy to get into the city but a long 1 hour ride, con you heard the tram going by from your room. Pro to and from the airport an easy 5 euro bus ride, no need for a taxi and we are in our 70s.


The bed was very small and we used a sofa bd along with the bed for the two of us.
A friend from Glyfada suggested the hotel. I do not know the prices in Athens but we booked 25 euros and we booked 80 euro places that were much better but in more remote locations.

I stayed at this hotel while traveling to Greece for a wedding with friends. The hotel's furniture is extremely outdated and has clearly not been updated in decades. However, it was very clean with a nice sided bathroom. Each room seemed to have a balcony which was also very nice. It is within easy walking distance to anywhere you want to go in Glyfada including a very nice close beach club. The tram into Athens is pretty simple and leaves you in the city center but does take up to an hour. A taxi is much quicker but runs about 20 Euro each way to the main tourist sites.

The hotel staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The rate we got was great (a negotiated rate for wedding guests), so I am not sure about the value otherwise.

Things to note: Like many hotels in Europe, there was no conditioner in the room, but if you ask, the staff will track some down for you. The blow dryer is very weak (one of those ones that are attached to the wall with a hose) and will take you quite a while to dry your hair, but gets the job done.

Changed to this hotel after having stayed two nights in a hotel that did not quite live up to our expectations. We were very happy with the Golden Sun Hotel. The ladies both in the reception and in the breakfast room were very helpful and positive. We had a room on the top floor with a fine view to the sea. The beach road passes nearby with a lot of traffic but it was still far enough not to disturb the night's sleep. The hotel is just next to the new and convenient tram which can take you either to the centre of Glyfada or all the way to Syntagma Square in the centre of Athens. The express-bus to the airport also stop right across the road from the hotel. It took somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes to go to the airport in quite busy traffic. A nice thing about the hotel was the beautiful pool, quietly "behind" the hotel. There was service from the bar so we didn't even have to get up from the sun-chairs in order to get cool drinks in the warm sun. Will be happy to come here again if we happen to be in the area.

Room Tip: We had, as said, a room facing the sea. I am not sure if there are rooms that do not face the sea. B...

Ideally located near tram sto!, we enjoyed taking tram rides into central Athens and Pireaus .
A short stroll will take you to cafes and restaurants
A very nice homely hotel , very pleasant and helpful staff .

Our room was very clean and bed comfortable , some reviewers have mentioned a noise problem here , being a light sleeper i did not find this at all .
The bathroom has recently been up dated with modern sanitary ware . Very nice .

The breakfast buffet was good and had everything we needed , you only have to ask if if you require something , they are very accomodating.

We can highly recommend this hotel for families / couples /single travellers . it is in a quiet safe location easy to find .

We will stay again . the couple who had car problems . !!! many thanks

We have been coming to Glyfada for a number of years recently and during this recent visit we used a new hotel that really met our expectations. Clean, reasonably priced, cheerful, helpful staff, buffet breakfast with reasonable offerings and in a close proximity to the area’s shops and restaurants. In previous years we stayed at Johns Hotel that was going downhill until it closed last year, then one street further away at Sea View Hotel that was noisy and lacked a number of characteristics that we found now at Golden Sun Hotel. We wish we had gone there from the beginning; it might be three streets further away from the center but the distance is hardly noticeable. But the difference in the surroundings and ambiance together with service levels certainly is. We are very satisfied with this hotel and we will be coming back next year again during our visit to Glyfada.
