Found out we could have been picked up from the bus stop nearby after we walked to the hotel after catching the 196X bus direct from the airport. Our problem. Very courteous, free wifi and able to print boarding passes for our cruise which left the following day. Just around the corner from many restaurants on the marina, and just along the road from a cake shop - YUM!
Great breakfast I had to drag my husband away from!

Room Tip: Got a balcony which was good in the afternoon as we sat outside. Not all rooms had a balcony.

Like others we picked this hotel based on the trip advisor praise and it really lived up to expectations. Clean, comfortable rooms, good breakfast, free shuttle to the cruise port and great value. The location can't be beat. Lots of restaurants and tavernas nearby and shops of all kinds including a couple of supermarkets. The excellent little archeological museum is only a few blocks away. We'd definitely choose it again.

Room Tip: We had a triple room and the extra space was a plus

I found the Phidias Piraeus Hotel to be an excellent base for visits to both Central Athens and the Greek Islands. It is just round the corner from a large local marina with a good range of restaurants. Although it is a 20 minute walk away from the Metro into Athens, which is right opposite the ferry port, the hotel provides a free and reliable taxi service to both the ferries and trains. My room was very comfortable and quiet, with free wifi and a personal security safe. The excellent breakfast was included in the price I paid, with extra courses, such as fruit, being offered directly from the kitchen. The X96 coach runs every 20 minutes from Athens Airport to Piraeus, at a cost of 5 euro. You should alight at the last stop before the terminus at the ferry port and the hotel is then only a short walk away. I had booked the hotel jointly with my wife some nine months before our stay, on a non-refundable basis. Unfortunately, my wife died suddenly during the summer and I holidayed alone. The hotel staff went to some lengths to refund part of the cost of my stay - a kindness that I was not expecting.

I stayed there for the triple room (one extra bed) I am very happy we chose this hotel. Near shopping center and Train station and they offer free taxi service.

I am amazed that the television was so great. We can see youtube from the television. Also, free wifi. Worth every penny!

We chose Phidias hotel for a precruise stay due to the many 5star reviews here on trip advisor. I think I was lucky to get the last room for that night. It was a room for four, but still only around $90, so I reserved it for the 2 of us. We took the express bus from the airport ( quite easy, efficient and cheap!). The hotel is clean, cute and so very accommodating. The staff were all very pleasant. The welcoming bottle of wine is a nice touch. The hotel is a short walk away from the marina waterfront and we enjoyed an evening stroll and dinner there. Breakfast was very busy when we first arrived, so we took a short walk and returned.Of course, the free shuttle to the cruise port is an added bonus!

The staff is so nice and accommodating. They are very friendly and easy to talk to. We were picked up from the bus stop by the free hotel shuttle. Transportation to the port was also provided, which was very convenient. Communication with the hotel prior to our arrival from Manila gave us specific details how to reach the bus stop, etc. and this was very helpful. If we go back to Piraeus someday, we would gladly stay with them again!

If you are looking to stay around the port, this is the ideal place. Located on a side street but not far a main avenue, this cute hotel has everything you need. It is clean, good staff and the rooms very comfy.
