Athens Zafolia Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was in Athens on business and stayed here for three nights. The service is warm, friendly and professional. With reception being smart and modern. The room I had was very basic, but clean and I slept well in the bed. The bathroom was good, but my shower water was either very hot or cold and I found it hard to get a good temperature. Breakfast was good, with a fair choice of dishes. The coffee wasn't that nice however. I didn't use the gym facilities.

Good position, not very close to metro station, but it's ok if you don't have heavy luggage. Just 950m from "Ampelokipi metro station". Good breakfast, nice lobby area, typical but spacious room an bathroom. Helpful personnel.

This hotel is situated amongst alot of cafes and restaurants along a busy main road. The rooms are modernly furnished and noise can only be heard if you open the windows. The metro station is only a 10 minute walk away and is only a few stops to syntagma square, so its a pretty good location, reccomended for those looking for value for money. Opposite there is a supermarket for those who wish to shop small things like water and snacks etc. The rooms are fairly spacious and modernly designed. Staff were polite and helpful and the breakfast was large and plentiful , with cold and hot food. Good views of athens from the rooftop and a very small gym for those wishing to keep fit. Overall I would reccomend this hotel, in comparism with other 4stars in athens I would say this is a pretty good choice.

The hotel is modern, the rooms are clean and comfortable and well-maintained. The hotel has good food choice variety. The hotel has a nice rooftop pool with amazing view(s) of Athens. The hotel offers free wi-fi in the lobby.

This hotel was okay but definitely nothing special. The rooms and main areas were uncomfortably hot and there was no a/c available in the rooms. The free breakfast wasn't great either. I wouldn't stay here again.

This hotel is in quite a convenient location and not at all far from the main sights. In fact the Archaeological Museum is just a 10 min. walk away. The hotel itself is very comfortable. I loved the olive oil soap. The buffet breakfast has a wonderful array of breads, cheeses, meats, fruits, Greek yoghurt, etc. There is an ATM machine inside the hotel and the staff are friendly and helpful.Free Wifi. Tap water is drinkable. There is a small supermarket right in front across the street to pick up wine or bottled water. If you are looking for souvlaki then come out of the hotel and turn left. Walk down a bit on the same side as the hotel, pass the first souvlaki shop, cross a narrow road, keep straight and you get to the second shop which has outside seating. Yummy souvlaki. For more shopping-stuff like shoes, cosmetics and other restaurants, take a left on the aforementioned narrow road and go upwards. If you keep walking you will come to a laundromat just before a sort of square. It's on the left and open till about 8.

My wife and I have spent 4 nights in this hotel and it was very nice.The room was more than enough,the bed was comfortable.We had a room with a view towards the interior and it was perfect because it was very quiet,exactly what we needed after running around all day through Athens. I loved the fact that the hotel is a standalone building and not crowded between other buildings as I have seen on several of them in the city. Location is ok,we used open buses for tours and the closest station was at about 15 min walk,just enough to get you pumping in the morning. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever encountered with plenty of choices for every taste. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful in making reservations for us on a cruise and at a special restaurant.I thank them for the hospitality and kindness. Wireless internet is available everywhere and it is very fast(my phone recorded up to 3 mbps when loading pages or youtube videos). The only "minus" I could say was the TV which is old (no lcd) and does not have any kind of inputs so you cannot use it for anything . All in all I would recommend the hotel to my friends anytime ( it has a pool on the top but we were there in Nov so it was too cold to use it)

I stayed at Zafolia hotel for 12 nights in September after my Partner was flown to Athens for emergency surgery. All of the reception staff were helpful and very sympathetic through this stressful stay, they could not do enough for me and my partner when he was finally discharged. The rooms are spacious and the beds were very comfortable, the room was cleaned daily with nice clean towels and bed linen if requested. The roof top bar and pool what can I say but simply amazing views and very relaxing. I can not pick fault at all in the Zafolia hotel all the staff work hard to keep a well run hotel. Thank you all so very much.

We stayed here after I was discharged from the BiobClinic in Athens in the Junior suite. I have to say from reception to the housekeeping staff they where very friendly , polite, and helpful the maitre di was a bit grumpy because I'm on a restricted diet and all I could order was poached eggs. The breakfast for a 4, star is very poor no fresh fruit, not much variety ,they stop serving at 10:30am. 11am would be more sociable and less pressure. They run out of cold water and don't replace it even upon request . Lots of guest agreed would be more realistic anyway 11 am finish. Breakfast is cheaply done and very poor . And they get rather Uppity if your not out by 10:30am they tell you and remove all the food. A bit abrupt, but friendly waitresses ! We had the junior suite which was very nice comfortable and made up nicely the last night. Hotel has a roof garden pool and snack bar and a gym and again lovely staff. Beautiful place to sit at night. Our junior suite had 2 balconies very beautiful room, any request and the staff provided it promptly 15 minutes walk from train station we had 2 lovely toasties late at night served by a lovely young waitress. Nice lobby elegant entrance very nice, good for groups. Bathroom was too small for 2 people Not much storage space for clothes but had mini bar we kept our snacks and water in there Mini bar is way overpriced. Safe deposit box but the worrying thing it works with your room key.... Not being pedantic, but the staff could access it at any time never encountered a safe deposit box that opens with your room key. But other then that it was a lovely stay, memorable and a big thank you to all the staff who looked after us The Acropolis by taxi is about 10 minutes and only€5 euros or tube but it's 15 minutes walk to nearest tube station there are buses and cable buses outside hotels loads of shops , pharmacies and all night kiosks and tavernas giros and snack bars lovey patisseries. Apart from breakfast and grumpy maitre d' Lovely hotel. But check out the rooms before you book I heard from other guests they did not meet expectations Ours did but was a Junior suite !

Zafolia Hotel is a big hotel which is located in central Athens. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hotel offers every basic needs. I stayed there twice already, in 2015 and in 2016. I chose the hotel Zafolia because it was the official hotel for a competition, but I would recommend staying there again. Although main attractions in Athens are not walking distance from the hotel, it is easy and cheap to get to the Acropolis from there. Plus points for breakfast with lots of creamy Greek yogurt!
