Very close to piraeus port (5 or 10 min walk), nice, convinient and clean for a one night stay before the ferry to the islands. Only bad thing : the surroundings... noting much to see and do and a lot of garbage in the streets...

This is a good budget hotel on Notara St, right along side Hotel Faros and Hotel Atlantis. It is within walking distance of the Port of Piraeus. When the price went up from 30 to 45 euros at Hotel Faros we moved right next door to Ideal Hotel. We had just returned from a week in Santorini and prices for... More

Many of the ferries to the islands seem to leave at 7am so it was handy being able to walk to the hotel in 10 minutes. It was also close to the bus station if catching a bus from Athens airport. I arrived late at night and left early so it was perfect for me. It's in a narrow dark... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night after my ferry returned from the greek islands. The hotel is budget and cheap and is great value for money. Rooms are clean and spacious, however they smell highly of smoke and for a non-smoker this is quite potent. I could not tolerate the smell for any more than one day and... More

As form personal eperience, this hotel is good for arriving or departuring from Pireaus with the ferry. As other people wrote, the first way to the hotel might be less nice. The ally seems far away from fabulous and you will expect the worst. Yet, once you arrived at the hotel, you will see it is a great deal for... More

As others have mentioned, this hotel is in a quiet part of Piraeus and convenient to the cruise terminal (we walked there). There is nothing of interest in the immediate area after dark, which is when we arrived. For dinner, we walked to the Marina area (up the hill in the opposite direction from the Cruise/Ferry ports). The marina area... More

We stayed at this hotel for a night before we took our cruise from Piraeus. The main reason for chosing this hotel was that it is very close to the cruise ship terminal. The hotel was clean and service was really good. The room size was average, the A.c worked fine, the bathroom had supplies of bath gel and shampoo.... More

Excellent and absolute cost-value relationship. Friendly and supportive reception desk. Everything worked just tight and fine. It is a strategic place to stay before getting into a cruise ship docked in the very close port of Piraeus.

It's hard to complain about this hotel, except maybe the location which is a little to the south of the main port. Having said that, the staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and modern. Good value
