Athens Zafolia Hotel
Ranked #79 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed 4 November 2017

The hotel is a little ways away form the downtown shops and cafes, but has a very nice lobby with lobby bar and 2nd floor restaurant. One of the best things about this hotel is the rooftop where there is a bar and pool. You can grab a drink and sit outside and just gaze at the awesome Athens view. The room needs some updating like the rest of the hotel has. Could not figure out how to get the air conditioner to work good enough and neither could our friends who were traveling with us. Other than that we really enjoyed this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up so you can have a view and avoid the loud noises from the street.

An affordable hotel located on the fringe of the city hub. We had two short stays here during our time in Greece. Our second room was better than the first, which was quite small and had very poor wifi access. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Unfortunately there was no kettle in our room for making our own tea and coffee but I believe this is usually the case in Greece. Breakfast was included and was quite adequate. We found all the staff here to be very helpful and friendly. Rooftop pool with bar is very nice though not spacious - lovely night view of the city from up there. A number of restaurants are close by as are supermarkets and a good bakery. We enjoyed exploring the local fresh fruit and vegetable market a couple of streets behind the hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a balcony - convenient for drying clothes if you need to do some washing.

We stayed here whilst I waited for s doctor to bring me back to the U.K. As I became extremely unwell in the Island of Kalymnos a good hour flight on the Agean Sea away.

We were very impressed at our welcome to the hotel straight from hospital discharge.

Very friendly,professional receptionists gave us lots of information on the area where to go snd where to eat. They even went as far as to recommend us a restaurant not knowing we would fur up (which we did) and discovered to our surprise a table had already been booked to our name by the hotel.

As my dietary requirements meant I could not eat the traditional Greek food. It had to be gentle on my stomach.

The food was needles to say out of this world, fab restaurant and you get a free delicious cocktail made purely of fruits after dinner.

A big thank you to the staff for taking the initiative here, yes I've written a review on the restaurant here " Agora"

The hotel is elegant. Very plush has its own restaurant 2 snack bars, one in the lobby and one on the roof terrace where they have a gym and a swimming pool open till 11 pm.

Will close early if no guests obviously.
We had a superior suite with a massive double bed . Two terraces living room corridor. Bath and shower with all the sweet little complimentary toiletries. Low cozy lighting everywhere. Mini bar.

Large TV. Safe. Desk books on Athens ; history, maps, where to shop places of interest to visit.

Anything we required was brought immediately upon request.

Our suite was cleaned to a very high standard and turned down at night beautifully.

All the staff are courteous and professional at all times.

Breakfast,a wide choice of everything you could want.

We can't find Gaur with the hotel. We now wish we'd spent more time there relaxing as I was meant too.

Very appealing to haves hotel with a roof garden terrace and even better that you can go up there till late have a drink Hyundai

Our suite could not have been more lovey and our made got to know us so we never had to ask a second time for anything.

Reception was the same experience everyone as friendly, approachable professional.

Down to the bell boys waiters and bar staff.
I do recommend this hotel.

This hotel is further away from the main hotel district in Athens and is not as busy. It is walking distance from the National Archaeological Museum which is a must see for anyone visiting the city. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and supermarkets in the area.
The rooms are clean and quiet. Breakfast buffet included was standard. Hotel staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The higher up, the further from the busy street noise.

It's an OK hotel - common areas are nice but rooms are small unless you luck out and get a suite. They are a good size. Rooftop pool is nice but not suitable for kids. Buffet breakfast is OK but scrambled eggs are powdered. Mix of canned and fresh fruits available. Some decent restaurants within walking distance, as is the Archeological Museum.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to a suite.
