Leoforos Epidavrou, IsthmiaCorinth, Greece -See the map
Amy AdejokunSection editor
The King Saron is a classic hotel without great originality, but with no unpleasant surprises either. Its location and the quality of the area makes it a very pleasant place. It is, in fact, an hour's drive from Athens, 5 miles from the new town of Corinth, 9 miles from ancient Corinth and 6 miles from Loutraki, a spa and bathing resort. On the other hand, it faces the Saronic Gulf where there is a gorgeous panorama.

The hotel is located an hour's drive from Athens, 5 miles from the new town of Corinth, 9 miles from ancient Corinth and 6 miles from Loutraki, a spa and bathing resort. On the other hand, it faces the Saronic Gulf where there is a gorgeous panorama.
All 152 rooms are housed in one building. But there are no bungalows. The rooms were refurbished during the latest renovation. They are equipped with a television broadcasting a wide range of programmes. The bathrooms have a bathtub and a hair dryer. Finally, the bay windows overlook large balconies that can accommodate a table and two chairs. If you request a sea view, you can take your time and admire the Saronic Gulf quietly in your room.
The hotel has five floors and occupies the centre of a park planted with pine trees, oleanders and tamarisk, all at the water's edge. Built in 1972, it has undergone three major renovations - in 1981, 1992 and 2000. It retains a pleasant and well maintained atmosphere.
Food and drink
The buffet in the Athena restaurant, air-conditioned and non-smoking, is high-standard. A Greek evening is organised once a week, allowing you to sample traditional moussaka, tiropitas, and Baklava. For other days, forget your diet : pasta, French fries and beans are served at lunch and dinner.
Whether they are on the island of Euboea, or as in most cases, on the continental coastline, the local beaches are generally not anything exceptional. The King Saron's beach has at least the advantage of being very close (direct access), is of a considerable size and has fine sand so you can put your towel on the ground. One glance at the Gulf and you will be conquered by the view forever.
The hotel is higher than the ordinary standard in Greece. No surprises, it is neither good nor bad. The view is fabulous and the staff are charming, ensuring that you really have a very pleasant stay.
