    Friendly staff, polite and helpful. I was lended a telephone charger by the receptionnist... his own!!

    For my purpose the location was not the best. Need to be checked when it comes to visiting Athens.

    Superb

    Front desk staff and rooftop pool bartender were very helpful during the stay and went out of their way to make sure everything ran smoothly, and after a trip to Naxos came back to the hotel and stayed another 4 days.

    Hotel is on a busy street and some rooms can be noisy.

    Very good

    It was a very nice hotel and the staff were very helpful.

    It was listed on Booked.net as being within 2 miles of the Acropolis but was actually very far. a 15 minute walk to the subway and then several stops away. Also no free internet.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was big. The lobby was large and welcoming. The pool at the roof was nice and clean.

    The hotel room was a bit dated with drab colours. The opening hours of the pool was very restricted (12-19 daily) and the wireless internet did not work at the roof as promised. In room there was only wired Internet and no electricity outlet close by so I had to unplug the tv to charge my computer. I couldn't buy internet access from my room, you had to purchase a voucher from reception. The rooms facing the street was very noisy. I am normally not that bothered by noise so I opted for a street facing room as they were bigger, but this was too much. The area is a bit boring with mainly car dealerships and a 10 min walk to the nearest metro.

    The Zafolia Hotel is a great place to stay. The staff are fantastic. They will go out of their way to do anything for you. The pool on the roof has some great views and is quite relaxing. We spent a few hours up there drinking and relaxing. Close to a strip of restaurants. Breakfast is pretty standard, nothing amazing. Room service finished as midnight.

    The double bed was two single beds pushed together which were even made up as single beds as well. So not so cosy for snuggling and sexy time.

    Very good

    The hotel was a very nice modern facility with a great pool. Breakfast had a nice variety of choices. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is a long walk to the metro, but the area was safe with mini marts and restaurants close by. The taxi driver Leftevis was great!

    We lost our bank card in the machine at the hotel and no one seemed interested in helping us. We were told that it happens often. This really needs to be addressed because it is a big problem when you are 1000s of miles from home.
