We stayed in Emmantina for a week on our holiday. I wouldn't say the holiday was either made or broken by Emmantina, it was satisfactory without blowing you away.

The rooftop bar is without doubt the biggest selling point of the hotel. The views are lovely, and it's a great place to sunbathe, go for a paddle in the pool to cool off, and get a drink. You could easily spend hours every day here if you wanted. The bar staff are always offering to fetch you drinks and were the most friendly staff we encountered around the hotel.

In terms of location, Emmantina is minutes walk from the coast and Glyfada's beaches (shame about the oil spill recently). It's easy to catch the tram into Athens (45 minutes tram ride to Syntagma) and that was very useful for exploring the tourist sights in the city. It's on the edge of the main Glyfada strip of bars and shops which is nice to explore in the evenings.

Keep in mind it is right next to a very busy road, which causes a couple of challenges. Crossing the road is tricky at any time of day or night! Also there will be some traffic noise. In the room efforts have been made to minimise noise with double doors which helps, but at night when all is quiet you will inevitably still hear the constant rumble of traffic. On the roof bar they play music constantly to help distract from the road and that works fairly well.

The drawbacks of Emmantina..Mostly involve the food. We prepaid for half-board breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is ok, served in a dinning room it's a selection of cereals, cooked breakfast, bread and fruit. Also coffee and cold drinks. Nothing special but it does the job in setting you up for a day.

Dinner however was always a hassle. Each night we ate in the hotel the staff didn't understand or were confused about our booking. Some nights it'll be served in the roof bar, other nights we'd be directed down to the dinning room, all a bit confused.

I got the impression the food (having already been paid for) was intended to be as cheap as possible. Leafy salad, lots of pasta, fairly uninspiring main courses. All sorts of good food options are available around Glyfada and I'd recommend exploring those rather than having dinner at the hotel.

Our room although booked as a double gave us instead twin beds, which was a shame. The room was well cleaned each day. Although on a couple of occasions we'd come back after a day out to find the room stinking of cigarette smoke, which was quite disgusting. I assume the air vents must have brought it in from a nearby room or something.

All in all we enjoyed our stay, although Glyfada itself is the star.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th highest accommodation floor, and I gather the higher floors are better, more recently renovated.

Had a nice stay at this hotel. Great beds, and nice breakfast. Walking distance to downtown Glyfada, as well as a 6 euro cab ride to the nearby beach. Julie the front desk manager was kind and very helpful. I would definitely stay there again

I stayed in Emmantina for one night : it was a very pleasant experience, specially the room set up, the mattress and the duvet.

I did not get to use public transport but spotted the tram stop opposite the hotel at close distance. I was told that it is a scenic ride of 45 minutes to down town Parliament. Car ride took 15-20 minutes.

The amenities were pleasing, specially the roof top swimming pool with the nice view.
I got to sit at the rooftop bar and found it convenient for one night stops and pretty nice and relaxing open space and view.

The staff is very friendly and professional from waiters to reception to housekeeping. Special thank you for Ms. Venetia who took care of all the small details with a great smile. She can answer most of your requests, if not all, concerning hot spots, museums, transportation schedules, massage, safety, flight tickets and luggage etc...

The room was located on the main road with sea view. You can hear a bit of car sounds although it has double glass doors, but it is not uncomfortable at all compared to other cities. The view was really nice in the morning.

One last note : I was positively surprised with the quality of the shampoo and soap available as I usually make a great effort to pack mine. Those who have curly unruly hair, it'll do the job.
In sum, it is a clean, friendly and conveniently located hotel.

This was an overnight stay which was 12 hours too long. This hotel smelled musty as soon as we entered it.We were three people and they put us in a double room and brought in a very uncomfortable cot, which made the room very cramped. The room is very basic, the chairs and furniture was all scratched up, the binding in the welcome book ripped from one end to the other. The breakfast was ok. I would never stay here again, even just for one night.
