“Average rooms, great location”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

We booked this hotel at the last minute for the last few nights of our vacation. This was the only hotel we did not check on Trip Advisor before booking as we hadn't decided whether we wanted to go back to Athens. As a consequence, we were somewhat disappointed. We wanted to be near the sea and had been advised that Glyfada was a good option. The location of this hotel is great- the beach is across the road (a busy road) and there are plenty of shops and restaurants in the other direction- all walking distance. The reception, pool and breakfast area are all very nicely decorated and the reception staff was good. However, having been to some hotels on the islands where we were made to feel like a part of a family, we were surprised that the staff in the restaurant did not even acknowledge our presence. Breakfast was average. We booked 2 rooms as we are a family of 4. My daughter and I had the sea view room on the fourth floor which had a great view. Unfortunately, the room smelled like someone had been chain smoking in it for a very long time. The other negative was the noise. We didn't get much sleep as the traffic noise was very loud. The boys' room was across the hall and much quieter. The mattresses were uncomfortable- quite hard. The bathrooms were large and nicely decorated. We couldn't use the safes in either room. In the boys room, it wasn't secured and in our room, we couldn't access it as the bedside table was blocking the door in which it was located. There was an extra charge for Wifi, which was disappointing. The rooms weren't expensive considering the location, but do your homework before your book.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the main road as it is very noisy.

The staff in this hotel are fighting an up hill battle to sell something not worthy of Glyfada. Staff were helpful but after being shown 3 rooms we decided not to stay. Carpets, walls dirty. Needs total revamp. Foyer updated and gives false impression on website. Would not recommend in this condition.Forfeited one nights accommodation .

The only positive I would say is that this hotel is located in a good location with easy access to metro. We were really disappointed with the hotel staff as their attitude was really rude, unprofessional and uncooperative. During our 2 weeks stay, we had to move room 3 times! We stayed in one of their ensuite rooms, as our room had been taken by another family, and that was filthy. The pool area was unused also - and it seemed dirty.

We were misinformed about their breakfast - the omelette had pork in it, and I was told it was just egg - and rest of their food was terrible. It would have been better to eat out. We would not recommend this hotel for the price - we were really disappointed

Very good location, excellent staff and lovely reception area. Looks like a 4 star hotel in the reception, but the rooms need updating.They have only changed the tvs,but hard matresses and 3 star looking rooms. The staff was very polite and helpful and the hotel was opposite the sea, and next to restaurants and glyfadas shopping area. No wifi in the rooms, only in the reception with a charge of 3 euros minimum for 12 hours. Average breakfast.

Room Tip: room 307 was great , sea view rooms are better

The view of the rooms is great. You can see the sea of Glyfada! Ask for a room on the 4rth floor! Very clean and the service is really good! The breakfast is delicious and has variety..you can park your car outside the hotel that has always parking spots.

Stayed here before but beyound the modern reception area the rooms are very shabby and I was bitten by mosquitoes. Shame really as the staff are very nice. The owners should spend some money on doing up the rooms and bathrooms though. And the breakfast needs to be lifted a little.

The reception of the hotel looks modern but "behind the scenes" the rooms and corridors are old fashioned! The photos that are shown should be very old because none of them is real in what i have seen at least! From the balocony's view the sea is behind a building. The breakfast is quite simlpe for the price i paid for! Also, during the accommodation I saw people with prostitutes wandering around to the corridors! There is not enough parking space, so I had to make some rounds in the city to find a spot to park! The next day i passed to an other hotel!
