EURO 2012: An Accommodations Overview, Greece NT

Shiny bar, shiny seats, shiny floor and shiny barman standing by to fulfill our every sordid whim. This is looking promising so far, Kickettes! Image: JANEK SKARZYNSKI/AFP/Getty Images.

They might not be the national team whose pants drawer you’re most interested in familiarising yourself with, but the ‘fun factor’ of the Greek NT’s accommodation arrangements far outweighs any disappointment at the lack of potential fantasy material.

We promise you.

The ‘Folk Restaurant’


Oh. Less shine, more wood seems to be the order of the day in the ‘folk restaurant’. But let’s try and stay optimistic, shall we? No, we have no clue what those wagon things with the inefficient wooden wheels are for, either. We just hope its not to collect the bodies of those who have just eaten breakfast.

We’re just funning.

We’re sure the food is lovely and not remotely poisonous.


The Folk Restaurant: Pt.2


It’s the dead animals nailed to the ceiling that offend us. Like we’d really tuck into dinner with a dead wolf suspended over our heads?!


The Pool


More evidence (if it were needed) that inappropriate wood is a feature at The Warszawianka hotel in Jachranka (near Warsaw).

For those of  you who flunked Dendrology 101 (look the hell at us and our big words on a Friday), palm trees are not native to Poland yet are part of this pool’s ambiance anyway.

Go figure.


The Living Room


Now this is more like it. Lovely widescreen TV to watch the games on, plenty of cupboard space and best of all, special sliding door thingy to lock out irritating team-mates. They’ve even supplied a little table and (naughty) chair so the offender can contemplate the nature and severity of their crimes.


So, from what we can gather, during the tourney we need to be looking out for Greece NT players sporting splinters, unusual eating habits and homesickness.

They’ll almost certainly pick that up from the palm trees.

    Also new immigrants, single parents, seniors and people with low-income use the food banks.

    It's painful just to look at the fotos, how much more would it be to stay there for the duration? Ouch. I'm not that familiar with Team Greece but this just seems wrong. The living area with the pocket doors were kind of nice, though. Maybe they can order room service? When they're done writing postcards from the naughty chair and table?

    this is so confusing….. I dont even have words for it.

    This was obviously an episode of Trading Spaces. Pool and chuckwagon were designed by Frank and Living Room and Bar were designed by Vern Yip.

    players can not complain, they are treated so well and sometimes not even deserve all this wonderful place I'd love to stay a few days there, but I do not have enough money then I have left is the same internet dating!

  14. Wait, is this all the same hotel? How can that be? If I walked from that breakfast chuckwagon feast wagon into the shiny bar I think my head would explode. Team Greece looks befuddled enough on the pitch – I don't think this is going to help them any….

    What kind of theme the hotel has when there is a shiny futuristic bar and in complete 180 a rustic restaurant?

    Let's hope this "tough" accommodation makes the team work harder & improve on their Euro 2008 record & play more like Euro 2004!! :P
