Everything was alright for this hotel. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They provided us with a small map that had restaurants and the grocery store marked on it, which was very helpful. The room was decently clean and had all the amenities we needed. It wasn't classy, but we stayed there for the location. 5 min walk to the beach and it was beautiful.
Overall, it's a good deal for price and location.
The Apollonia Hotel Apartments are located in the bustling beach resort of Varkiza. This 5-star Athens Riviera hotel is …More
The staff is very polite and personable, the room was quite nice and updated, with a balcony that overseas the coast, it is very close to the beach and local shops. The hotel is very accessible from the main roads and public transportation. The breakfast was very nice, accommodating for a variety of guests only €7 per person. The main floor patio is very relaxing whether drinking coffee in the a.m. Or waiting for a cab. I would definitely stay here my entire trip if I came back.
Was given a small, dark room with no water view when I had booked a partial sea view room. Immediately changed to a large king size room with a large balcony and full sea . Small fridge, bathtub greatly appreciated. Would have liked to have handrails in the bathroom as the hotel is somewhat handicap accessible. A cart is provided to take you to dinner in the next building....it is a bit of an uphill walk. Access to the beach is a short walk under the highway, probably could take the cart there as well. 2 elevators. I took the half all inclusive which was breakfast and dinner....nice variety of selections. Staff very helpful. My only issues is that it was difficult to take city excursions from here as it is an hour away from the city. There is an orange bus that runs once an hour to the city.
I would book this hotel again.
I booked this hotel as one of the wedding presents for my sister and brother in law to stay for the night after the wedding. The room was excellent, service was excellent - they checked in late -after midnight/ and had complimentary champagne and a fruit platter shortly after they arrived and complimentary late check out. the breakfast buffet was incredible and generally the whole experience was fantastic. We are very grateful for the amazing service on this special occasion and would highly recommend this hotel.
I would describe this hotel as no frills but it has everything we needed during our 7 night stay. The X96 bus to & from the airport stops very close to the hotel & is only 5 euros each way. The hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from the beach. Unfortunately our room overlooked the busy road but with the door to the balcony closed the noise was minimal. It would be worth asking for a room at the back of the hotel. The room itself was a little dated but clean with a comfortable bed & a lovely shower and the air conditioning was good. One downside was the lack of tv channels but as we spent very little time watching tv this was not an issue. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a lot of choice & food was plentiful even towards the end of the breakfast session.
Rooms are an average size and clean. Although the walls are particularly thin and we could hear our neighbours having a very good time! Staff are friendly and helpful. Pool area is nice-was very quiet most of the time. Athens itself is not very far but the hotel is an ideal location to relax.
Overall, not a bad stay. The hotel is close to the beach (you have to cross the four lane highway, but there are crosswalks). Room is nice with a balcony and it is cleaned everyday. Hotel is quiet for the most part. There was some noise you could hear from the restaurant on the first floor; I was on the third floor. The only negatives were the fact that there were virtually no restaurants close by without having to take the tram. There's a kebab restaurant close which I ate at a few times due to convenience and was actually very good. Other than that, to get a decent meal at a decent price, your best bet would be to eat in the city center before coming back at night to the hotel. There is a restaurant in the hotel, but they only serve a few items from their menu and everything is 12 euro. I only ate there for breakfast since it was included in my room rate. The other negative was the hotel staff. For the price of the hotel and the fact that it is a four star, you would expect that the staff would be friendly and accommodating; this was not the case. They had the appearance that they did not like tourists and whenever you asked a question a brief and hurried answer would be provided with a sullen look on their face. When I checked out early in the morning as well, I had to wake one of the staff members who had fallen asleep.
Although best known for its historical and archaeological sites, Athens is also blessed with lovely beaches on the Aegean Sea. Travelers can experience majestic views of the water and still remain within convenient reach of the famous historical sites of Athens, such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon. The historic port city of Piraeus is also nearby.
