The hotel has nothing exceptional to offer except that it is close to the port and convenient to catch a ferry to the island the next morning. They have a booking office on the first floor from where you can book the ferries without any extra charge. So that was great. The guy at the desk was quite sweet and...

Stayed here for one night before boarding a cruise ship. It may not be in the nicest of areas when you arrive at night but to be honest you are in the main port for Athens. If you approach from the waterfront area is it fine. The rooms are extremely clean and facilities excellent, the sound proof balcony door blocks...

We stayed at this hotel one night because we took the ferry to Naxos the next morning. I already read al the stories on Tripadvisor and it was just what I expected. We paid 30 EUR (stayed in Sept) and it's totally worth your money. It's clean and actually looks kind of hip and renovated. The room is not very...

Well priced, perfectly located to catch an early ferry. Clean hotel, nice rooms and crisp linen. I can only recommend this hotel as it was a great experience. The ONLY thing stopping me from giving a 5 star rating is when I asked for directions, they told me what bus stop to get off at..it ended up being about 2...

Whilst it is very cheap the hotel & room was clean and had a comfy bed and a small fridge and tv, which we didnt use. The room was very small, and the lift is tiny but quick! We requested a cot, told no problems, when we arrived were told by the clerk they didn't have cots and that WE...

We came back from the islands about 11pm. Our boat docked at gate 9, the hotel is very close to gate 10. I think this is the piece of information missing from previous reviews. As there were not much local people around at that time (except taxi drivers who tried to get us on a taxi), we had no one...

Not in the thick of everything, but not that far from anything. Modern hotel, with elevators to the rooms. Free wifi. Not any restaurants very close, but within walking distance. Port and railway station a couple kilometers. Friendly staff that speaks English. Travel Agency in the hotel to help with reservations on ferries to the islands.

Found this hotel on line. Was close to the dock,( in fact easy walking distance if you don't mind pulling your bags along rough pavements,) for cruise lines heading to Turkey and Black Sea. What a gem! Reception staff so helpful and friendly, rooms spotless, comfy and reasonably spacious, good size bathroom and little balcony. Lift a tad small but...

Stayed 1 night as we were boarding a cruise ship the following morning. For $40 it was great and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I needed to print a document which was no trouble for them and they didn't charge me for it. It's approx 10-15 mins walk to the cruise terminal, gate E11.
