“Great hotel but a little overpriced.”
Reviewed 8 July 2011

Just a typical 4star hotel of the 80s. Good in general but definately not value for money. I mean its located right by the sea closed to all the famous night clubs of athens and only 30 minutes drive from the airport and 2 minutes from the center of glyfada. Easy to access. But i dont think that what you pay is what you get. Had to pay for 180€ for a 4 bed room and i think that you could find a luxurious hotel at the same price.

We stayed here for 3 nights & the staff could not have been more friendly & helpful especially Tatania.
It's on the bus route from the Airport & 2 mins from the tram to central Athens & a fantastic beach bar. We had a clean spacious room with a powerful shower although the beds were a bit firm for me.
Breakfast was limited but staff were happy to serve us even though we turned up at 2 mins past 10am.

Room Tip: Avoid balconies facing the busy main road.

Reviewed 25 October 2010

We stayed here on recommendation, but were so disappointed. There was building work going on and it was constantly noisy, not their fault I guess. The toilet and plumbing stank foul, they said the waterboard were working and that was the problem, but it made it an unpleasant stay. The breakfast was greasy, buffet, but you felt embarrassed to take anything with the staff guarding everything, and offering nothing! If you came in late, there was no chance of ordering a coffee, and no facilities in the room.

the 2* BLue Sky is a much better bet, cheaper, cleaner, friendlier better service.

Reviewed 10 September 2009

We had an unplanned stay here as Olympic Airlines booked us in after a flight disruption. If we had not already been "grumpy" we may have enjoyed it more. It seemed like a very nice part of town but we were not up to exploring! The rooms were biggish and quite clean. The dinner was super boring and the pool looked very nice.

Stayed one night and the staff especially Thao could not have
been more helpful. I recommend this hotel based on the happy friendly
vibe and the great breakfast with a great view to compliment it
