“Good value in Piraeus”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

- Free transfer to/from Port/Airport Bus stop
- Friendly and helpful staffs
- Early check-in (without extra charge. maybe we were lucky?!)
- Free upgrade to a bigger room
- a bottle of welcome wine
- Good breakfast
- Clean room/bathroom

The whole hotel looked like fresh renovated. Simple, modern and clean.
The shopping area was nearby within walking distance.

It's really a good choice for a stop over. Definitely go there again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors will be brighter.

I travelled to Greece alone and it was my first visit. Following a great deal of research I found Phidias on Tripadvisor...Oh my word, an absolute gem of a hotel. I emailed the hotel to ask about travelling on the X96 bus to Piraeus (only 5 euros rather than 40 euro for a taxi)...within the hour I had reply. The hotel will collect you free of charge from the bus stop and they also arranged shuttle to take me to the cruise terminal. Hotel staff sooo very friendly. My drinks tray was missing from my room, when I asked about this Iwas assured that it would be sorted out for the next day but in the meantime the receptionist made me a filter coffee, it was delivered to my room with a small complimentery bottle of wine. The room was spotlessly clean and fresh. Lovely rain shower in the bathroom which was clean and bright. Big bonuswas plenty of electric sockets and easy to find them...no hunting for a one and only spare socket! It would be a crime not to stay here, the location is perfect and so are the staff. Breakfast offers both cooked and contiental, a good way to start the day. I would not hesitate to stay again.

The hotel was newly renovated and very clean and modern. The service was wonderful including a complimentary shuttle to the port in the morning. The gentleman at the front desk could not do enough to help us with anything from restaurant recommendations to transportation needs. I highly recommend this hotel if you find yourself in Pireaus

The Phidias Hotel is a very pleasant hotel near the waterfront and a number of very good restaurants. Have them tell you about a BBQ restaurant near the hotel. We went for lunch and intended to go for dinner, but we were too full after the good meal we had for lunch.

The hotel serves a very good breakfast, all you could require and a little bit more! They also provide a free shuttle to the cruise ship terminal.

The staff are very helpful and pleasant and all speak very good English. Would go again.

Room Tip: I think all rooms would be fine

We had a brand new room on the 6th floor. Everything was clean and working. Very close to the pasalimani with cafés and restaurants. Very friendly staff. They asked us if we were going to the harbour the next morning and had us driven there free of charge.

What lovely helpful staff. And a fabulous hotel. Within walking distance of the ferries and the metro, the hotel ofers a free shuttle to and from the shutle and the airport bus stop. Its also a lovely location for shopping and restaurants, hairdressers and beauty salons for after your island trip! The staff were so welcoming I booked in for another two nights on our return to Athens. I will definately return.

From our initial online enquiry through to check-out our overnight stay was perfect!
We had never visited Greece before so weren't sure about our options for getting to Piraeus for our Greek Island Cruise from Athens airport.
Lia from Phidias provided us with full instructions on what bus to catch, where to catch it from and then where to get off. She suggested that finding the hotel may provide difficult for first timers so arranged for a driver to pick us up from the nearby bus stop and transfer us to the hotel. She gave us the driver's name, registration number, full description of the van, etc. No detail was left out which helped us immensely.
The hotel accommodation was fabulous! Walking distance to the restaurants (again Lia helped with recommendations of where to eat, which we listended to and again was not disappointed - the food and service was spot on). The rooms were well serviced, immaculately clean and a good selection of buffet breakfast available. During our stay there were minor works being done to refurbish/complete the hotel but this did not affect our stay at all.
Upon check-out the hotel driver & van were waiting to take us direct to the cruise terminal.
The alleviation of any stress about getting to the cruise terminal on time and finding the correct ferry was well worth the tip offered to the driver - he deserved that and more!
WHAT DIDNT WE ENJOY ABOUT OUR STAY AT PHIDIAS? It wasnt long enough!
We certainly hope to return one day but in the meantime thank Lia and the wonderful staff at Phidias for making our stay a pleasant, memorable one.
ps. The surprise delivery of a bottle of wine to our room was greatly appreciated and something that in the 7 weeks of travelling through Europe did not come across anywhere else. Phidias is special!!
