Great stop-over in Piraeus

I use this value for money hotel in Piraeus every time I travel to the Greek Islands and have never had a problem. Rooms are clean, staff are friendly, it is well placed for the port and one of the best Thai restaurants outside Bangkok is almost opposite.

Great access to the ferry and train

The location is an easy 10 min walk from the ferry dock and train station. It is an easy walk even with luggage. The staff is friendly and attentive. They're knowledgeable and speak fluent English. The room is very clean and in perfect working order. So far, this was the best of the 8+ hotels we stayed in while visiting Greece. And best of all, it was very affordable! Most bang for the buck that we've found.

Stay here instead of Athens the night before leaving on the ferry. It's cheaper and saves a bunch of time in the morning.

Value for money

It was cheaper to book an extra night through this site rather than at the front desk. Close enough to the main ferry gates. Situated in a back street rather than the main 'drag', I enjoyed my stay.

There's a great, atmospheric restaurant near the main market, gate 8. Unpretentious but full of atmosphere.

Very OK for the price

Although the area is not the most nicest from Piraeus, the hotel itself is clean, and worth what I paid for. Shower was improved against last stay, floor has no more carpets, what I like much more. Also some nice painting was done. Te person at front desk was also very friendly and helpful. I would recommend for all who are not afraid to stay in the back areas of Piraeus.

Ideal

Clean, friendly, efficient, ideally located for all Piraeus ferries and keenly priced. What more could a traveller want?

Close to Pireaus

My room was extremely small, but for overnight it was fine. The staff is very helpful and is as accommodating as possible. If you have little or no luggage, it is within walking distance of the port so a taxi would not be needed. However, if you have much luggage, a taxi is still needed. Beware of the taxis in Greece, or at least Athens - you get charged about $5 for each piece of luggage you have - even if it is only a two-minute ride to the port!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

As stated above, taxi drivers charge high rates and charge for each piece of luggage. To go about two minutes, it will cost you at least $10! There are several places to eat down by the port, but finding a little market is harder. I finally found one after searching quite a bit on a side street leading up from the port.
