Nice hotel at Athens Coast/close to everythingPosted Jun 23, 2013
Pros: The staff is amazing and helpful. They are polite and knowledgeable about the area and ways to move around (transportation etc). The price was good.
Cons: Bed quality is not the best (eg two twin beds pushed together make a double), breakfast quality is OK,
Location: The location is pretty good. The view is amazing having the Saronic Gulf in front of you. There is bus and tram stops, the airport bus stops nearby.
I booked this hotel as a part of a package on my last day in Athens. I was flying to the US in the morning and I knew that I needed to be somewhere that is convenient for me to get to ATH airport. The hotel exceeded my expectations for the price I paid. It was not a luxurious stay but a decent clean place to sleep. The view from our room (if you exclude Poseidonos Ave. in the front) was amazing (the Saronic Gulf and the ships coming in and our all day/night). Athens downtown was also not very far (about 30 mins on a bus I would say) and ATH airport is less than 40 mins away (on X96 bus that stops really close to the hotel). The staff was helpful and polite better than many average US hotels I've been to. There are beaches to swim even in walking distance from the hotel but a bus can take you to far better ones in 30 mins or so. I would easily go back to this hotel for a budget but more than decent place to stay.

nice hotel for short breakPosted Jun 14, 2013
The hotel is on a busy road but there is an underpass and plenty of crossing points. A few nice places to eat ideal for a 2 or 3 day break. staff at hotel excellent.

Know what you are gettingPosted Jun 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
if you are just staying for a night, or a quick layover, it does the job. However, it is not in the best area - next door to seedy strip club and down the street from a "xxx" hotel. Management was nice, however we did not stay long - was not how we wanted to end an otherwise great vacation!

Very good for a holiday stayPosted Apr 3, 2013
Cons: A bit noise coming from the nearest main street
Location: Near the beach, very good snack shop by, near tram station and Pireus port
Very well situated just in front of the beach and 45 minutes away from central Athens by tram. Extremely polite staff.

Recommended Hotel in AthensPosted Apr 2, 2013
Pros: the friendliness of the personnel.
Cons: the traffic noise with the balcony door open however once they were closed there was almost no noise.
Location: beautiful view of the Agean Sea and easily accessible to public transportation.
This was a special occasion for my wife and I (her 50th B-Day) and we always wanted to visit Athens and to experience mystical Greece. After the long flight from the U.S. and upon our arrival at the hotel, we were greeted by brothers Yiannis & Nikkos. We were jet lagged and after checking in and tipping our driver, I accidently left an important envelope at the front desk. It contained our Euro's and other important docs. Before we even made it to our room on the 4th floor, Yiannis brought this envelope directly to us with everything intact. Thank you for your honesty. Throughout our entire stay, these two young men were not only pleasant but they were always extremely helpful along with our other adopted daughter, Adrianna. This young lady even helped me out before our arrival by attempting to assist with restaurant reservations and with setting up all important transportation to and from the hotel. She was also very funny and she taught us basic Greek. She gave us a cheat sheet so we could communicate with the locals. It was just a true pleasure to speak to our adopted kids (we have children about their ages) at the front desk. Like I told them each one made us feel at home. We also had a very positive experience from the restaurant staff, Nikki and Dena. They were always extremely friendly and the food served was excellent. Great job to all and we will certainly recommend anyone from America to stay with you at the Tropical.

nice hotelPosted Nov 25, 2012
Cons: no free wi-fi, breakfast isn't very inviting
Location: far from city center (30-40 minutes by tram) but very near the tram station (2-minute walk)
hotel is clean, staff very helpful, breakfast is depressing (everything is dry). Far from the city center, you need 30-40 minutes by tram to reach there. however, with the same price or even lower you could find other hotels of the same quality in the city center.

tropical not a four starPosted Oct 30, 2012
No proper air conditioning in the rooms. It is set by the staff at high temperatures. We cannot adjust it. Towels not changed daily. No variety in breakfast. Same stuff daily..

Convenient for coastal environment and city sightsPosted Oct 23, 2012
The bus from the airport X96 stopped nearby. The tram provided an excellent service to the centre of Athens and Piraeus port as well as to the south. Occasionally speeding motor vehicles at night disturbed sleep. Breakfasts were excellent as were the staff. Overall very good value for money, we stayed for a week.

Good City Break type hotelPosted Sep 30, 2012
Pros: Great room service
Cons: one person on reception very un-helpful
Location: Across a very busy 6 lane 50kph dual carrage way and tram track to the beach, but great for access to busses and trams.
Location - across a very busy 6 lane 50kph dual carrage way and tram track to the beach, but great for access to busses and trams. No noise because the room was well equiped with two sets of doiuble glazed sliding patio doors onto balcony (balcony noise) Nice small pool Food and Drinks in hotel some what expensive. Room service and breakfast service excellent, reception staff excellent and very helpful (expect for one person who was very un-helpful) Carpetr in room ready for a change but otherwise room great.
