Just back from staying 5 nights at this hotel split over 2 different stay dates. We arrived late on Saturday night and even though we had booked a double bed room we were given a twin bed for the first stay of two nights, when we returned for the second stay we were given a double bed. Because the hotel is on the main coast road into Athens it is constantly busy with traffic throughout the day and night and on Saturday nights the Disco's across the road play very loud music until 6am, great if you are a party animal but if needing sleep not so good. On the plus side the rooms were clean and functional and even though the beds were hard, still managed to sleep fairly well with the aid of ear plugs. The buffet breakfast was fantastic with a wide choice to eat and the waitressing staff very friendly, likewise with most of the front desk staff. You do however have to walk at least 20 mins to find a decent Taverna and it is advisable to walk around the back roads to reach them as the main road is very busy with traffic and a few prostitutes toting for business. The hotel does have a nice little swimming pool to cool off during the day, also the bus stop for the airport is right outside so very convenient, the driver doesn't announce the stop though so you need to look out for the hotel which is by a big red sign Vero. Would stay there again as a good kick off point for tram, metro and bus to Athens and Piraeus.
