Just returned to UK having stayed with family at Golden Sun for 9 days - Never leave feedback on any website, however given the service, help and advice provided by the excellent staff (Tatiana & Irene) thought I'd take the time out to highlight that all the local knowledge, assistance & suggestions greatly added to an excellent family holiday.

Room Tip: Ask the staff what they suggest

The hotel is dated, but it is clean and the staff are friendly. Good pool area. Perfect if you are in transit following a cruise to Athens airport. The airport bus stops 50 yards from the hotel and will take you directly to the departure terminal of Athens airport in approx 30 minutes.

The hotel is located in Glyfada, very close to tram and bus stops but one hour away from athens city centre. There are many shops, restaurants and bars in the area and a supermaket. Both public and private beaches within walking distance.
The reception staff were very helpful and friendly (they took time to help us as often as we needed) but it is definitely not a 4**** hotel. Maybe a 2 ** hotel.

Rooms are not up to standards, furnitures make you travel back in the 70's, old carpet. It's a bit of a shock when you first walk in, you don't get what you see in the photos. The rooms they use to advertise the place look so much more luxurious…
We had a pool view room and it was quite noisy due to the traffic and specially the tram, passing every 5-10 noisy minutes, even late at night and very early in the morning.
The Wi-Fi signal was very unreliable and broke down quite often.
The pool is not heated and is freezing and is only good for length swimming. In the afternoon you dont get any more direct sunshine in the pool, you can only sunbathe here in the morning.
We thought the hotel was overpriced given the appearance of the rooms and public areas.

Room Tip: Do not take a pool view room, it is very noisy.

Our first impression of Athens as a city was when we checked into the Golden Sun Hotel in Glyfada, Athens. We were certainly not dissapointed as the staff took great care of us with loads of advice and recommendations. Tram stop is nearby in a hip part of Athens and not too crowed. Tram ride into the city is cheap, nice and picturesque as it travels up the coastline.
Also great location as not too far from Athens airport.
Thanks Tatiana for looking after us, your warm smile, and tips for getting around Athens and Zakynthos!

Wow! I must have stayed in a different establishment to tom below. My wife and I had a week at the Golden Sun in late May. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I agree the beds are firm but we were given a mattress topper after we mentioned this fact and that made a great difference.
We enjoyed the breakfasts and must say the staff are there to make sure everything is ok, not standing guard to stop you taking anything from the room.
I found all the staff to be helpful and friendly, and while a week is probably too long to spend in Glyfada, it is not too long the spend at the Golden Sun. The tram to Athens or Piraeus runs right behind the hotel, beach and the centre of town are only short walks away, and plenty of restaurants are nearby. All in all, great value for money. The best choice in Glyfada as far as I'm concerned.

Room Tip: Rear rooms are more quiet.
