Really comfortable and cleanPosted Sep 30, 2013
I stayed on a buisiness trip and this hotel was fantastic. It is a bit out of the way but there are a couple of nice restaurants near by. Plenty of choice at breakfast didn't try any other meals. I had a car but it is easy enough to get bus/metro into Athens.

Good place to visit Athens fromPosted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Amarilia was about a 30 minute drive from the Acropolis and an hour from the Poseidon temple in Cape Sounio. The room was fairly basic, but everything was clean and in good repair. The continental breakfast had an excellent variety and the food was fresh and well-prepared. The staff tried to be helpful to us with directions and suggestions for good places to eat dinner. Parking is on the street and not always convenient to find and unfortunately the public beach, a five minute walk from the hotel, was crowded and messy. A reasonable alternative is the nice pool at the hotel.

Great servicePosted Sep 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
but..... a few issues with the hotel. First they misread our booking for a superior room and put us in a standard one which was very basic. They apologised and offered us either an immediate change to a room with a view on 3rd floor or to wait to the following day to have an even better view on the 5th, which is what we did. That was much better - having a bath, more space and view. However, the beds were still very firm (where did I see 'tempura mattresses? This room didn't have them), and the furnishings were basic but adequate. Unfortunately the strength of the wifi signal was weak in the second room so I had to go downstairs to use my notebook. The strength of this hotel is really in the helpfulness of the staff. We had problems with the zip on a new suitcase and the receptionist went to great lengths to get the maintenance guy to come to measure the case and provide us with cord for tying it up. The breakfasts are also very good buffet style with lots of choice, including local delicacies (such as the filo pastries with various fillings, and Greek yoghurt with lots of sides - including the Greek version of Turkish delight). Lovely.... and very efficient staff there too. The pool area is small but adequate with towels provided, sunbeds and a bar for drinks, plus a shower too. So, overall it was a good stay but not amazing. Would I stay again? Maybe, as the location is good and it is handy for visiting my daughter who lives nearby.

Lovely helpful staff but not worth 4 starsPosted Aug 19, 2013
Pros: Great breakfast selection, nice courtyard pool area.
Cons: Noisy plumbing in bathroom and lack of sound proofing.
Location: Beautiful coastline but local beaches dirty and neglected.
The staff were superb and very helpful. The location was good but more info needed on restaurants etc in the city centre of Vougliameni as local restaurants catered for tourists; not much greek food on the menus. The nearest beaches were dirty full of cigarette butts, glass and bottle tops etc. Vougliameni beach was better. The bed mattress was incredibly hard. The plumbing in the bathroom was interesting it was not pleasant having to listen to everyone's daily/evening ablutions. The room doors need proper closers on them as the slamming of doors from late/night early morning revellers kept us awake. I don't think this hotel should be awarded 4 stars.

Family RoomPosted Aug 11, 2013
Pros: The room and the maid service and the view
Cons: Waiting for a table at breakfast.
Location: The view was lovely. Sea one side and mountain view on the other. Short walk to beach.
The adjoining rooms in the the 'Family Room' accomodation was good, clean and comfortable. My family were happy with it. The maid service was excellent at cleaning and making the beds and were very polite. The daytime reception staff were good especially the young lady.

The hotel is situated in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. About 30 sec away from the sea, you will get a nice and friendly environment perfect for relaxing get away.

Excellent hotel in one of the more prestigious areas outside of athens. Great service, clean rooms and with the bonus of the beach being located right across the street. Great shopping in nearby Glyfada. We really enjoyed ou four night stay.

AmariliaPosted May 26, 2013
The hotel was very close to the beach and near restaurents and only a EURO 17 ride to Athens city - so it was well postioned. It was clean and thstaff were all very frendly. The rooms were average in terms of furnishings - but this was not important.
