This is a lovely hotel; all rooms are suites. Spacious, spotless clean, in an unbeatable location close to eateries and shopping. It cannot be faulted where its features are concerned whether the room, the balconies and the bathroom. You have free access to a well stocked minibar near the lobby that is full almost from morning to night with soft drinks, wine, water not to mention coffee, cake and cookies. You take your breakfast at the sister hotel 21 across the street and you get access to the pool of yet another sister hotel, Semiramis, that is less than a five minute walk. So in a nutshell, this is a treasure of a hotel. Now, that aside, the most incredible amazing feature of all three hotels is ITS PEOPLE. The staff is incredible: efficient, warm, friendly, genuinely caring and going seriously out of their way to help, even without your asking them to do so. We were warmly greeted by the lovely Monica who was full of smiles and real warmth and informed us of a complimentary upgrade. She carried our luggage and without being asked lent my elderly mother a hand to walk up to the room. Genuine care. Monica was not alone, Maria her colleague was equally charming and helpful with a lovely smile that always greeted you coming in and leaving. The senior Maria always had a nice word to say, stopping to chat and check if we needed anything,asking about my mother and sharing jokes. She did not have to do any of this; again genuine care. Same goes for Yanis from the front desk, as well as Dimitria, Vicki and Kiriakos the cleaning crew. Those three bent almost backwards to make sure that our every wish was met, again with genuine care and not just out of duty. Those are good hearted people. I cannot not mention the warm, smiling and jovial Makis from the breakfast team at 21. Always meeting us with a wide smile, rushing with his cordial and friendly colleague Khristos to help get cushions and a comfy chair for my mother. Makis would daily recommend special omelette, pancakes and juices that he freshly prepared; all in a warm kind non obtrusive very friendly manner. The staff at the front desk of both 21 and Semiramis were equally kind. The staff of this hotel made our stay all the more memorable. Their care, kindness and efficiency will probably be one of the main reasons to return to Kefissia. Hint to management: hold on to the staff. They are a valuable treasure. Hint to tourists: stay at kefalari or any of the sister hotels. They are the best.
Our family of five were fortunate enough to stay at Kefalari Suites on the interim prior to moving into our permanent Housing. What makes this place so special is how personal and cosy it feels - homely yet luxurious; the amazing service (our rooms were cleaned and prepared on a daily basis with great efficacity and attention to detail); a wonderful breakfast every morning along with an honesty bar and most importantly, the staff especially at front desk who, ensured that our everyday was as wonderful as the next. I highly recommend staying here and would find any excuse to come back! This is a place run by people who know what hospitality really means. We stayed at the Deck suite which was just perfect for us.
I travel a lot for business. This hotel was refreshing and different from the corporate type hotels I usually stay. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The breakfast is simple. You can order omelets, pancakes and other items. The area for breakfast is small but nice because you interact with other guests. You can also use the space for coffee and tea at other times if the day. The area is nice and you can walk to many places. I had one day for fun. Joanna at the front desk gave me great suggestions. She also helped me with transportation. I took the train/metro to Athens. Saw many of the sights. The train is 2€ each way. The system is easy to navigate. Finally the rooms were clean and quiet. I have no complaints. It was a great stay. I will definitely stay again!
This was a lovely place to stay during my 2 week stay in Athens for a business trip. Cosy, clean and modern rooms, each with its own theme. My room had a hallway, mini kitchen, large wardrobes, spacious bathroom, a balcony and a lovely, extremely comfortable bed! This was "Hydra" room. My colleague was in "Melody", this had all the same features but more of one large room separated by a wall in the kitchen with a bathroom also. Breakfast was lovely, with staff making you coffee and offering to cook you things that weren't out for the buffet. They called and arranged all our taxis. Would really recommend this hotel as a place to stay. It does not have a gym but there is access to a gym in a nearby hotel. There is however a roof terrace with a balcony and sun loungers if you are there in the sunny months! If you need to get into the centre of Athens you can walk 10 minutes to the metro and get a return train ride for less than €2 and its takes about 25 minutes, or you can of course get a taxi. There are lots of nice restaurants nearby, the hotel even gave us some good suggestions.
Kifissia isn't downtown Athens- the Acropolis etc are a bit of a trek- but Kifissia is a charming, quiet but chic, residential area and Kefalari Suites reflects that aspect. There are many great restaurants and shops very nearby- on weekends the neighborhood is buzzing with activity. The rooms are very comfortable, the service is unobtrusive yet friendly, lovely breakfasts and a very quaint elevator!
Small and high quality hotel for business trips. Big Rooms, clean, excellent service and breakfast acording to the hotel (room smaller in coparation with the romos) Silent at the nigt and everything is ok, taxi stop área at 1 minute walking, center área at 25 min with low traffic and 45 min at top hours at mourning.
We have arrived late in the afternoon. The suite that we have been allocated was clean and had everything that a guest needs for his stay. One small probem was the parking as I had to search more than half an hour to find a parking spot. Once i entered the hote after i parked my car the answer that i have received was that it is difficult to find place during Fridays. No alternative was offered. next day I found carrages upon payment close to the hotel against payment which was fine for me. The elevator was a little bit small for two persons with luggages but no one can fault the hotel for this. I expected although to receive help with the luggages upon check in and more informations. The breakfast had anything you may want but the serving time was till 10:00 if you wanted to order from the menu. Thank you for the hospitality.
Situated in the suburb of Kiffisia, within walking distance to the shopping area and restaurants. The Hotel could benefit from a refurbishment. Although comfortable and clean. Breakfast was a disappointment and not recommended. Polite and helpful staff.
Very kind helping front desk, good spacing rooms with kitchen. Small bathroom. Fine lining, nice detailed furniture. Very tiny breakfast room but anyway really pleasant breakfast. Rooms are very quite and room cleaning perfect. I recommend.
If you do not mind to be a bit far away from Athens center you can enjoy the delicate atmosphere of this "hotel" and its beautiful surroundings, nature and upscale shopping market. Friendly front office personnel. Just nee to improve their breakfast selections.
