Guest reviews for Athens Zafolia Hotel

Family (1)
3 out of 5
- Staff was ok, aloof at times. - Pool attendant was rude to my son asking him to not dive. He’s 8, he doesn’t know how to dive. He’s a beginner swimmer but other kids were jumping into the pool and got no reprimand. The attendant got splashed by my son (forgive us, it’s a pool!) and got annoyed. He also was keeping other patrons from lounge chairs because he said they were “reserved.” There was no reserved sign indicating that so many patrons had to find other seating. Staff like this need more training. - WiFi in the rooms are non existent. Just doesn’t work. - No airport shuttle by hotel but they will arrange one for you. - Breakfast was good. Wide variety. - moldy smell in the bathrooms in our connecting room.

Dear Guests, Thank you for choosing Athens Zafolia Hotel for your stay in Athens. We are pleased to read that you were satisfied by our staff and that you enjoyed our breakfast. For safety reasons, there are some Pool rules that need to be followed, which are also displayed in the pool area. One of the most important rules is that dives are forbidden. We would also like to clarify that we do not accept reservations for the sun loungers and our policy is “First in – first sited”. We hope that we will have the opportunity to welcoming you again at our Athens Zafolia Hotel and offer you the level of hospitality that our hotel is known for. Kind regards, Guest Relations Department Athens Zafolia Hotel

This is a nice hotel but it is too far from anything you need to see in Athens. It has an ok resturant but its staff and servers are extremly rude.
