Reviewed 11 October 2013

extremely small rooms, the cleanliness was questionable and the beds were soo uncomfortable. we had to get a different unit after a few days we moved into the apts behind the hotel and those are definitely worth recommending, they are a lot more spacious and although the décor is totally dated it is definitely more comfortable then the hotel rooms. they are a good value but I would not recommend the hotel..

This hotel was recommended to us by family who live in Varkiza, one of whom was getting married (hence our visit). We chose it because it could accommodate our needs (rooms for 3+2), was located in an area we knew and was good value. although the rooms (in the apartment we had at least) are in need of a bit of an update decor-wise, they were well maintained, clean and spacious. A problem with the bathroom sink was sorted in about 15 minutes - on a Sunday morning!- and the staff were generally just brilliant. Breakfast was simple but fresh and did the join, and drinks were available to buy in reception at very good prices. All in all an excellent choice for a cost effective stay in a wonderful city!

Room Tip: Apartments have big balconies and separate bedrooms so good for sharing

We stayed in the apartments behind the hotel--2 bedrooms, a kitchenette and bath, with balconies all around. The air conditioning was especially appreciated, since the days were quite hot. It was very convenient for a family traveling with children. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The apartments were on a side street--very quiet. A short walk to the beautiful beach kept the children quite happy, and the free WiFi in the lobby and patio came in quite handy. We would definitely stay there again. The pool was good for adults, but limited for children, as there is no shallow end.

This little unassuming "gem" with a big heart in Varkiza is absolutely great !!! Christiana and her staff are very helpful and accommodating, There is a very nice beach 3 short blocks away and a string of good eateries to pick from in the main drag. The airport and downtown Athens are one-half hour or less away ...

Room Tip: Rooms on the fifth floor have a unique view of Varkiza and the nearby sea.

This was our 4th visit in 5-years. It is handy for the airport and Vakiza has a good island feel to it. A beer by the pool and a swim after a long journey is just what we wanted. The staff are very friendly and helpful, breakfast was OK however the bedrooms could do with a little bit of investment. Very good value for the area. We will return when in the Athens area.

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend. The hotel was in a very good location for us. Close to the beach, about 500 meters away. close to the shops,no noise at night, and a very good pool.
The staff could not do enough for you. My wife needed a hair dryer, they were all being used, so he rang his mum to bring one round.
The hotel itself looks a little bit dated but was very clean. Toilet and showers were clean, also as it was very hot the air con in the rooms came in very handy.
There was a small fridge to cool your drinks, the beds were clean and comfy. We had breakfast in the morning, but very minimal choice. All in all I would recommend this hotel for its hospitality and as a budget hotel, very good. If you are a snob and like 5star hotels don't stay here as you would give a good hotel a bad name. We will be back!

This was our last of our five hotels for our seven day trip in Greece (Jun 5, 2012).
We chose this hotel mainly because of the close proximity to the airport. Great apartment, nicely located, lovely quiet neighborhood, and wonderful owners!
Upon being escorted to our room, we asked the owners about breakfast details to find out that they did not have yogurt. We received a call in the room about an hour later from the owner to inform us that we would indeed have yogurt. He actually went to the store and bought yogurt for us, now that is GOOD customer service!!
