This accommodation is near the port, has basic accommodation, helpful staff at reception. Like some other reviewers say it is not in the best location, beside some dodgy late night bars, but then it is in a port area of a major city so that could be expected.. Close the windows and block out the sounds, get up early and...

Nobody in their right mind would ever want to overnight in Piraeus but if you have die to ferry times this is a great hotel. Very God value overall, I didn't expect to get such a clean, well organised and friendly place for so cheap. It's located quite close to the ferry terminals too making your early morning rise more...

Practical hotel situated almost 2Klms from the port......serves the purpose of an overnight stay if going to or returning from the islands.Nothing really special about it, but it is clean, rooms could use a little upodating, water pressure is good, decent wifi, lift is tiny so if travelling with more than 2 persons plus luggage will need several trips if...

Stayed one night each way when going to Aegina. It was perfect for an overnight stay before and after the ferry. Nice basic rooms, comfortable beds with excellent shower facilities and plenty of fresh clean towels - and endless hot water. My room and shower were spotlessly clean. Reception staff really helpful and the price was good. I am booked...

The Ideal hotel in Piraeus is handy for travellers to and from the Greek islands. Just around the corner from the ferry-gates. Quiet hotel in a bustling harbourtown. Helpful staff. Clean rooms but no frills. Breakfast is basic, but OK when you are in a hurry. Atmosphere: guests on the move, stayers for one night.

This is sister hotel to Hotel Glaros, which is just around the corner. They are similar in style, with clean, comfortable rooms with TV and basic toiletry supplies provided. An economical option when connecting with flights and ferries. Close to Gate E9 (walking distance if luggage is manageable) and reception will arrange a taxi to the further gates - around...

Like most travelers who stay in Pireaus, we needed a room for one night before an early morning ferry. Ideal Hotel fit the bill. Relatively inexpensive, quiet, and a quick walk to the ferry terminals. The room was clean and of moderate size, the bed was comfortable, A/C worked perfect fine. That's really all we wanted! The area is a...

If you are travelling to the Greek Islands from Pireus, and have an early ferry, this is a perfect choice. Yes, it's in a back street, but is only 10 minutes walk (or a 2 minute taxi transfer) to all the main embarkation gates and the airport bus stops just round the corner. The rooms are clean and the airconditioning...
