We booked this hotel as a base to return to Athens from a cruise, from which to plan and proceed on to some tours of the Greek islands. We called in to visit about 2 weeks prior to our booking to see whether the hotel had an airport shuttle and could we book onto it for our return flight from Istanbul. No shuttle, and the abrupt manager curtly advised that he could organise a flat rate taxi. He gave us no indication of the metro service or bus service that could get us close to the hotel at a fraction of the cost.
Arrival itself was pleasant. The room was small but generally clean, however a bit old and tired. Curtain tie backs had come loose from the wall, and the tile grout in the bathroom was moldy. The room was made up each day, but there were small annoyances, such as the used drinking glasses not being cleaned or replaced.
There is an in house restaurant, but not many other facilities in the immediate vicinity, a couple of small cafes. It is walking distance to the ferry terminal area, but not with large suitcases.
For a 5 star hotel, it was a little disappointing. I would be happy to stay here again if I was on a business trip and had meetings in Piraeus, but would probably not recommend it as a vacation stay unless staging for an island ferry.
We stayed for one night. We enjoyed the hotel and the bed was comfy, the restaurant has some really tasty selections. Only negative was the shower is TINY in the room, and it was very difficult to not flood the floor if you aren't careful. Otherwise a good location from the port and would stay again.
We stayied at this hotel because it was close to the port. The hotel was ok for us, it was very clean, they were changing the bathroom towels every day, take the garbage, make the beds so it was ok. The best thing that we found was the breakfast which had a big selection of goodies for breakfast not to mention the fresh orange juice :) yummy. The cupboards and carpet need an update because they have a bit of an old smell in them but its not like you are moving there. We didnt stay long in the room so for us being clean in the evening and having a rich breakfast in the morning was fain.

"Very close to the port. Great for overnight stay"
Stayed here for a quick overnight when coming back from the islands to catch our flight the next day. Easy to find and a short walk from the port - absolutely NOT work a taxi ride - even with two large suitcases. Staff were friendly and directed us to a great local restaurant. Room was quite small, but very clean and comfortable. Certainly met our needs for an overnight; however, would not stay for more than 1 or 2 nights.
We booked the hotel so my husband could have some rest after leaving hospital before travelling back from Piraeus to Crete on the ferry. He needed to be on a restricted diet, mainly soup and bland food. There was no soup on the menu, but when I explained the position, the concierge immediately said he would ask the kitchen to prepare chicken soup specially, which they did, and it was very good. The only downside (not the hotel's problem) was that there were no shops nearby for me to get some fruit for him to snack on - so when booking, do remember this and taken any provisions with you.
Upon our arrival we were shown to a room on the second floor of the main building overlooking a side street. The pillows were small and they quickly provided additional pillows. The hotel was also occupied by a school of young students who arrived back very noisily at 11pm. Once they settled we became aware of a strip club below our room on the opposite side of the street which was extremely noisy with occasional loud arguments. Our first night was quite sleepless. The next day I reported the problem and the manager kindly relocated us to the newer wing with a room on the sixth floor. Our few days thereafter were great. The staff were friendly and provided good assistance.
Athens’ port since the fifth century BC, Piraeus today is an industrial affair, eight kilometres southwest of the centre. Ferries, catamarans and hydrofoils connect to the islands, and cruise ships doing the Mediterranean circuit stop here. The pretty fishing harbour of Mikrolimano is lined with seafood eateries, and the circular bay of Pasalimani filled with luxury yachts.
