“Good glyfada location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

Good location- near marina and shopping. Nice looking main areas- best in this price range that we stayed in Greece. With Athens traffic this location was much better for the airport commute. We didnt use the airport bus bc we had too much luggage but the stop was right there. We had a family room which was basically a suite (2 rooms). This was the only time in greece we didn't just have 4 single beds wall to wall. And good variety on breakfast buffet.

Can't comment on how to get there directly from the airport as we came from another hotel in athens but if you're doing the same then a tram takes you to where all the shops/restaurants are 5 minutes away from the hotel.

Our check in was easy and only gripe we had was we had to change room a couple times as the lan cable port didn't work in a couple rooms, they do provide cables but I would take your own if you need the internet during your stay.

Location wise, there are bus stops right outside and we took a trip to Sounio on the bus but it only came once an hour with no times on the stop so a little hard to figure out, though beaches all nearby incase you miss a bus.

Breakfast was nice, plenty of the usual european/continental fare for a 4* hotel. There are lots and lots of restaurants near by from the chain Applebees to local restaurants and souvlaki places. We quite liked Goody's if you're on a tight budget, it was a mix of burger stuff with pasta's and salad, quite decent for a fast food place.

We had an enjoyable stay and was more relaxed and enjoyable than our central athens hotel, it was easy enough to get back into central athens too and would return if going to Glyfada.

We stayed 4 days at Congo palace over a period of one month. The hotel has been pleasantly renovated and it is clean and well taken care of. The staff is friendly and helpfull. The breakfast is very good with a good selection for all tastes. The pool was clean and well maintained. Close to everything you might need as far as shopping or food. Many beaches nearby. Bus to airport cost 5 Euros with stop just outside the hotel doors. Would definitely go back.

when we arrived in athens we took a taxi from the port and went straight to the hotel. which we got a very warm welcome. and everything was correct as i booked over email which they were very prompt with their reply and acurate with their booking.
the rooms are very clean and a good size not too small but not big either. the hotel is very central, in glifada. walking distence to everything in glifada, and it has am amazing pool area and the breakfast is great, it has a big selection of food.
everything we asked for they were very helpful in providing us with info.
when we left they called a taxi for us.
our experience at this place was great. and we go often to glifada and definately will stay again.

Room Tip: clean, central, spacious

Quiet, clean and friendly. Rooms are clean, with daily service.
Breakfast buffet served generously although, always the same but still delicious.
Hotel location is perfect in Glyfada's downtown, very close to shops and restaurants.
Bus stop in front of hotel, tramway station 2 min walking, taking you to Athens in about 45 min along the coast and allowing you to see the different districts of Athens for less than 2 euros.
Public beach at few meters from the hotel but the dreams private beach, 10 min walking from hotel is perfect.
Hotel Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Sure we'll be back.
