Brasil Suites

Located in Glyfada, a beach suburb of Athens, Brasil Suites is an ideal destination for families looking to enjoy the beach during their trip to Athens. Although it is away from the city center, all of Athens’ archeological sites and museums are easily accessible from the hotel via tram, taxi or bus, and the metro station is only a short distance away. The stylishly decorated, apartment-style suites can accommodate families of up to five members, with baby cots available upon request. The hotel can arrange for tours to local attractions as well as transportation to and from the airport. In addition to the hotel pool and restaurant, beach access is within walking distance along with some of the best restaurants and shops Athens has to offer.

Fresh Hotel

Fresh Hotel is one of the newer boutique hotels in Athens. With an ultra-modern design and a “fresh” approach at hotel living, the Fresh Hotel offers a comfortable and convenient stay for families and businessmen alike. Families with children and teens can take advantage of the rooftop pool and easy access to shops and tourist attractions, while traveling executives can conduct business in the well-equipped meeting rooms.

Centrotel Hotel

Centrotel Hotel is great for families looking to avoid the touristy areas without being too far removed from the action. While located in downtown Athens, it is in a residential part of town that allows for more spacious accommodations. The rooms are comfortable and families can relax without feeling crowded.
