  • from Airport to Hotel


    Hotel is a little far out of town but served by a good & efficient bus route. Accomodation pleaseant & clean. Best for business travelers who dont fancy the fight in Athens traffic each morning, but not so good for couples / families as there is nothing much to do in immediate area.

    For business, hotel has good DSL connection costs Euro19 for 24 hours, ask reception for a LAN cable & power adapter on check in.

    A good quiet stay halfway betwwen airport & city.

    Unique Quality: Comming out of airport arrivals - dont bother with cabs - take the bus. costs Euros3.20 & drops right outside hotel, trip takes about 20-30 mins. buy tickets at kiosk outside arrivals at far right end entrance. take the X95.
    Also when in the hotel & wanting to go into twon take the bus again for a 30 min trip to drop you in the heart of athens Syntagma square.

    Too Many Niggles!


    Having decided to stay in Athens for a week I spent a few hours searching for a suitable hotel and Orbitz came up with this one but had located on the map as being in the city centre. At over 150 euros this was a little more than I normally pay for a hotel but both the location and the facilities were exactly what I wanted and it was one of the few hotels with availabilty at short notice and the necessary services and so I went ahead and booked it.

    HA! According to Orbitz's map the hotel should have been just round the corner from the internet cafe that I was using at the time and so I decided to check-in before going back to pick up my luggage from the previous night's stay at Hotel Marina. This was the first niggle - I couldn't find the hotel anywhere in the area that it was mapped and enquiring over a beer at a local cafe yielded no joy either.

    Back to the internet cafe, back online, I discover through Holiday Inn's site that the hotel is not in the city centre but in fact out by the airport. I explain this over the phone to Orbitz and despite being shunted up the chain of command can only get them to agree to cancel the reservation without charge if I find somewhere else.

    Unique Quality: Having already spent several hours searching hotels earlier I decide to stay there anyway as it is on the main airport bus route into the city and so the location isn't really a major problem.

    The hotel itself is a brand-new Hi Tech, all singing, all dancing, 5* establishment and most of what it offers is spot-on but there were a couple of little niggles which annoyed me. Coming back late one evening (very late!) my key card didn't work requiring a trip back down to reception to get it sorted. Internet access in room was fine but the 12 euro daily charge was a hefty expense and the hourly option not available. The electronic "Do Not Disturb" button which I tried to use on the Saturday "slob-day" didn't work, resulting in a couple of interuptions by housekeeping. Arriving back late on the Sunday night (Monday morning!) I found that despite having been out since 10 am my room had been made-up but the mini-bar not restocked, leaving me without any beer (having drunk it all on my Saturday "slob day") nor had the coffee facility been topped up for my morning cuppa - a phone call to reception failed to elicit any suitable remedy - not even the offer of room service. The credit card operated safe didn't work - though the idea of having a room safe operated by credit card seems a bit useless (a bit like keeping the spare safe keys in the safe!!).

    For the money these were just too many small faults, thus not particularly happy.

    Great views though!

    Directions: Between exits 17 & 18 from the motorway towards the airport.
