Avoid this hotel

Posted Nov 20, 2016
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: Situated next to noisy road and close to Metro station.
The hotel had no record of our expedia booking. They had one room, a dingy back room, although we had paid for a 'sea view'. The first night we were awake until 2am with the noise from 80 hyperactive Serbian teenagers running amok around the hotel. Next day we were moved to a front room (there is no real sea view!). The noise from the highway in front of the hotel was so loud that the balcony was unusable. The hotel seemed to recognise that because the chairs and table were filthy from the road pollution. The second night the Serbian teenagers ran wild up in the stairways and corridors until 3am with no action taken by the hotel. That and the incessant noise from traffic, including bikers racing along the road, meant little sleep. There were no bedside lights so it was only possible to read using the bare bulb in the ceiling light. Breakfast was awful. After the stale bread, dessicated scrambled eggs and dishwater tea on the first daywe gave up on the included breakfast and ate at the cafe across the road. We had also pre-booked the hotel to overnight after our sailing trip. Once again the hotel was full of over-excited teenagers. The desk staff were charming but useless. When we arrived at 4pm the smoke alarm in the corridor was beeping. After some hours nothing had been done so I got a battery from them and changed it myself! Do yourself a favour and give the Galaxy a miss. It is cheap but far from cheerful!

Great hotel close to beach and public transport

Posted Sep 25, 2016
The hotel and room was clean. Staff very friendly. Nice restaurants and cafes next to the beach and back streets. Convenient location with public transport and by car to the city centre, Acropolis, airport and beaches along the coast. The buffet breakfast on the top level with great view was the highlight of this hotel. The only bad point was the noise from the outside traffic on the main road - even from the side building rooms. However, I would come again to this hotel on my next trip to Athens.

Convenient location. The rest terrible.

Posted Sep 5, 2016
good location of you want public transport. Terrible if you have a car and need a parking place. the hotel does not offer any parking places and the area around has no available parking place. Outside the hotel and in the lobby it smells terrible (a mix of sewers and gas). The condition of the hotel is terrible. Walls need painting, they have wholes from drills, the doors and all the carpentry are very old and scratched, the door knobs are broken. The room (2 bed) was very small, the air conditioner smells, the bathroom very old with the shower mixer barely working. You cannot switch on the bathroom light without switching the main light on (very inconvenient during sleep time). The fresh towels weren't fresh at all, one of them was actually smelling bad. I had booked a double bed and I had 2 single beds put together instead. An overall disappointment. Terrible experience.

Staff unfriendly

Posted Jul 19, 2015 on Hotels
TThey said the room would be ready at 1pm but it wasn't ready until 4. Staff was unfriendly. TVs had only 1 working station. No security guard whatsoever. No room to lock things until checkin/out. By the beach and the bakery next door is really good.
