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 on a higher floor.

Reception staff pleasant, will point you in the right direction if you need to go somewhere, breakfast 6 euros, basic but ok. Odd club over the road which seems to hammer out loud music till the wee hours but windows double glazed so noise not an issue during my stay here.

Nothing fancy but serves its purpose and would stay again if spending a night in Piraeus.

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 for my outward bound trip in June so I must have found it did the job ok!. Does what it says on the tin!!

A useful hotel located close to the ferry terminal and offering good value
We received a warm welcome as we arrived at three in the morning from the airport to leave at ten to catch a ferry having enjoyed a good sleep
In brief a simple hotel offering a clean comfortable room

Room Tip: located 10 minutes walk ferry terminal

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.

Reviewed 19 November 2009

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 6 Euros cab fare.
If you are there at the weekend try to get a room at the rear of the hotel as there are a couple of bars on the street front close by which can be a little noisy, but otherwise a reasonable overnight option in Piraeus.

Reviewed 23 August 2009

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 bit sketchy, but not unsafe. In addition to the strip club across the street, there are other hotels on each side of the Ideal.
