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.
