The hotel is a bit old but it is clean. It is away from Athens, and 10-15minutes away from the Airport. It looks like it is located in a secluded area but overlooking the sea. They have a car service for free to/from the airport but operates only on certain time of the day (not 24 hours). If flight is very early in the morning (like before 7am), book for a taxi to the airport ahead of time. It costs 40Euro!!!
The hotel has a restaurant that serves buffet for 18Euro and a bar that serves drinks and sandwiches. It has also a swimming pool and access to the beach.
Overall, the hotel is good for an overnight stay while waiting for your next flight.

It was a bit ponsy and a bit pricey - not a place we would usually look twice at, but were past caring by that point. Despite this, it was all very delicious. The salad was huge and magical, tzatziki was fresh and creamy and ...
... taking it all in it was truly magical. As the hike had not taken nearly as long as anticipated and I was not meeting with contiki until 5pm I decided to take a walk and see the 2004 olympic stadium, google maps said it would take me and hour 20. But after and hour and a half of walking and no sign of the stadium I gave up and ...
... the fresh sea bass, making the fish taste absolutely wonderful. (0.750gr for €55.30)
We had Seasonal Wild greens (almirikia) and Asparagus as a side salad that was superb. (€7.00) I never had almirikia before and I even asked to see what the raw plant looked like. It was so fresh when brought on our table as if it was picked right from the field that moment.
Our delectable banquet finished with some dessert ...
... through the woods, got rained on and made it back to the streets. We then headed towards syntagma square, having a look at various shops along the way.
I got a gelato on the way back to the hostel, then soon enough we arrived back at the hostel. I went back to the room, got ready for the next day, relaxed a bit and then went to the roof top
bar. The hostel was having a happy hour at the bar, so had a few drinks, took pictures of the sun set, saw the views and ...
... the key! Not only had they not stolen the car or anything in it, but they had gone through the trouble of searching the parking area for a Fiat (indicated on the car key), and then written a note in both English and Greek to let us know that it was waiting for us at the ticket window. An amazingly uplifting experience, to say the least.
With our afternoon safe from the need to scour the hillsides of the southeastern Peloponnese inch by inch, we were free ...
