Very nice place to stay in Athens. All the amenities, comfortable rooms, good breakfast buffet and easy walk to many sites. Fantastic Acropolis view from 9th floor, even numbered rooms. Ask for one! We got it.
This hotel serves great breakfast. It is located next to the Alimos marina as well as next to a very busy road. In the same building there is a grocery story that provided supplies to people chartering yachts. We stayed there before and after our charter. Be aware that the noise level on the road side of the hotel is very high even with the windows closed. However, that side has a beautiful view of the sea and sunsets.
If you get the right room you get a glorious view of the habour and can enjoy a drink while watching the sun set. The room was well furnished and even came with a very decent stereo (so take your CDs).
Breakfast was very good and set us up for our days visiting the historical sites in Athens, which can be reached by a short bus and train journey (between 45minutes- 1 hour journey time depending on connections).
Airport bus stops twenty metres past front door, met by Steve the manager booked in within five minutes room on first floor no lift but Steve took suitcases and showed us to our room and set the air con going as it was another hot day.
Room was a good size bathroom ok and a small balcony facing the sea with a table and two chairs, the room had an empty fridge which is great as we usually find a supermarket and stock up coke, tea etc.
The hotel is on a main coastal road and there is traffic noise but we knew this before we booked so no complaints.
Directly opposite the hotel is the beach which costs 6 euros to go in and two loungers with a brolly is another 5 euros, the charge may seem a little high but the beach area is kept clean and well presented also there is an onsite café/bar you can order your food and drinks and they will bring it to your lounger.
About a ten minute walk to town, plenty of bars and restaurants things start getting busy from 7,00pm onwards.
The tram terminus is also about a hundred metres past the beach entrance 1.40 euros for a single ticket this will take you into Athens and terminate in Syntagma square.
Steve and his staff were very helpful with information and nothing was to much trouble.
We enjoyed our stay and will return in the future.
The location was excellent, close walking distance to all the main attractions. The hotel restaurant and lounge on the 7th floor has the best night view of the Acropolis.
The room was very comfortable, with luxury furnishings but we had an interior view. Excellent, quiet air conditioning.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us excellent restaurant recommendations for dinner.
It was somewhat expensive but worth it. We will defenitely stay there on future visits to Athens.
What a great stay staff were lovely and helpful. Our room was standard double...really big clean and well furnished.
Breakfast was a good choice...couldn't fault anything and would book again.
Transport very near by and straightforward.
Thankyou very much!!!!
Cape Sounio is a truly lovely place. There was very little I could find fault with. The staff were extremely helpful with the service overall excellent. Food and facilities were great and the place was just fabulous. The beach was great and the view across the bay to the template was just magical. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday experience but the easy, cheap trip into Athens make sight-seeing feasible too.
Grecotel Cape Sounio is more than a resort-it is an experience. Like the Temple of Poseidon, in plain view from all the …More
