This hotel has been continually improved over recent years, as have the pavements in the street outside. Well placed for the ferry port. In addition there are 2 Indian and 1 Thai restaurants on the same street a real rarity in Greece. Comes highly recommended.
We wanted a good hotel to stay overnight before travelling onward. The Anemoni is only 10 to 15mins walk from the port and provided clean, safe and comfortable accommodation at a very reasonable price. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Nightlife - the hotel is well situated for local shops and the nearby Korai Place (10 mins walk, near the theatre) where there are numerous bars and eating places in a vibrant and safe environment. The hotel is also near the main X96 bus route. Overall, an excellent experience and will stay again. Piraeus has much more to offer than Athens!

We had flown into Athens airport and were catching an early morning ferry, so the location of the hotel was paramount. It was close to the Metro station as well as the ferry port.
The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. They provided us with a wake up call in the morning.
The room was quite tiny and the mattress on the bed was too hard for my liking.
The entire port area did not seem to be one of the "best" neighborhoods. There seemed to be quite a few homeless people around, but at no point in time did we ever feel threatened or unsafe.
The local market area was next door to the hotel, so we did a bit of wandering and picked up some fresh produce for a late night snack. The prices were very reasonable and I managed to pick up a new pair of shorts for the holiday.

We came to Athens for a 5 day visit of the city (not of the islands). Found the hotel to be very nice but for a visit of Athens it is a bit far. The metro is a 10 minute walk and then a 20 minute ride to the center of Athens (Monastiraki Metro). This being said, the value is super as the prices are very good and if you dont mind the distance, you will love this hotel. We plan to visit again but this time go to the islands. Then this hotel will definitely be our option.
I've seen quite a few horror stories from this place but having stayed here just on an overnight stop from the ferry to the airport the next morning, I can say it served our purposes just fine. The port area isn't very nice to wander around at night, so we were very grateful for the 24-hour reception where we were greeted in a friendly manner. The room itself was perfectly clean but not the most amazing quality. The bed was comfortable but for some reason came with one soft pillow and one that felt like a brick; we put the latter on the floor. The shower curtain didn't really do its job properly (there was water everywhere) and still managed to stick to you. The shower head itself wouldn't stay in place so you had to hold it. The view was effectively non-existent, just looking straight out into an alleyway. However the air conditioning and wifi worked well and frankly we slept fine, which was all we were looking for, and it was only about a 5-10 minute walk from the port/metro station.
Overall, not bad for the price but not somewhere I would stay for multiple nights.
For me, the place was idyllic - in many different ways. Great location (downtown Athens is a mere 45 minute bus or 20 minute metro ride away, and both are within easy walking distance of the hotel); friendly, knowledgeable staff; comfortable bed; a clean, quiet room, with an amazing balcony; and a pleasing breakfast buffet. I guess others will find the rooms too small, the decor dated, the buffet limited (no hot dishes), and the location inconvenient. To me, none of this mattered. The staff bent over backwards to make my stay over the Christmas and New Years holidays a pleasant one. My laundry was done for a reasonable price, and my luggage was stored for free when I travelled to Thessaloniki for a few days. Piraeus itself has so much going for it: cafes (including a Starbucks), restaurants, a waterfront, shops, quaint streets, easy transportation connections, including a nearby port from which most of the Greek islands are accessed. I'd never hesitate to stay here again; my only hope is that I'll have the opportunity to do so.

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.
