Overall wonderful experience. Spacious, well maintained room. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops in Glyfada. Hotel ordered taxis were timely, clean and with courteous drivers. Beautiful outdoor swimming pool. Watch out for the mosquitos at the pool deck!
"Nice hotel, close to the beach, trams, bus stop."
A family run establishment with a strong desire to please the customer. Great location for seeing Athens and avoiding the inner city. Yet it is on a main thoroughfare and easy to get to anywhere. Great beaches across the street and an easy tram ride south. The staff is very helpful and kind. They understand that customer happiness and contentment is the road to their success. If you are happy with the Motel Six and Days Inn line you will be happy with Minavra, great quality for the price you pay. You'll have the satisfaction of knowing your money invested is going to a great family not a major corporation. This was our second visit there and we probably will return.
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.
For never having been to Greece before, this is a good starter hotel. It is a short walk to the beach and a short walk to a major bus stop and tram for direct access to the center of Athens. Very good service. Clean sheets for the second night, as well. Very pleasant location.
