Reviewed June 1, 2014

I had a very nice staying at the Glaros Hotel. It's a good price hotel in a good location too, very next to the port it was not a problem to get the ferries. The persons that work there are very friendly and arranged to help in everything that you need. I had a special attention because i forgot my hat on the room and they were very solicitous to send me it by post. So, I have no reclamation to do about this hotel, It was perfect.

Very good hotel if you are not a pretentious guest and you are the kind of traveller that uses the hotel only for sleeping. There are not many facilities in the hotel but it has a bar downstairs, room service and breakfast, enough if you are visiting Piraeus and Athens. The room was very clean and tidy and they were cleaning the room everyday and also changing the towels, even though it was not necessary. The personnel were very helpful and nice, any information you need they can provide it to you.

I will stay again at this hotel on my next visit in Piraeus.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the street site because you have a nice view of the port and also try to choose a h...

I agree with recent reviewers. The front desk clerk was very professional and helpful. The room was clean. (We stayed in a nonsmoking room.) The little restaurant onsite can make some tasty food, and they have room service.

On the same street as the Glaros Hotel, a couple of blocks up the hill, is the Piraeus Museum which has some of the best statues in Athens. One caution: the sidewalk concrete is damaged in places; watch your step! The museum is small, although nearly everything in there is astounding. Definitely worth the 3 Euros we paid at the door. (Note: the museum is open 8-3 pm, except Mondays when it is closed.)

due to an overnight flight we arrived at this hotel about 3am. There was someone ready and waiting for us and knew us by name.

The room was basic but all we needed was a bed for the night. it had air con... tv and was clean. This hotel was perfect for a one night stay next to the port where we were sailing from the following day. perfect location... helpful staff! lovely little hotel.

We loved the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at this hotel. From the moment we checked in, we felt our patronage was valued. In response to various queries, we were immediately given a complimentary - and very good - map of Athens on which we were shown where things were that we needed. We were catching a ferry to Rhodes the next day and Glaros was the perfect hotel to meet our needs. We stayed there on our return as well and enjoyed it just as much.

If you are looking for luxury, this hotel is not for you: it is old and the furnishings are minimal. However they are adequate and our room was clean and comfortable. A big plus was the free wifi which worked perfectly in our room and in the lobby. There is a little restaurant in the lobby which was great for a drink and a snack in the evening when we got 'home'.

Most importantly, the hotel is very conveniently situated, close both to the harbour and the metro. If you need to buy tickets to get the the islands, there are a multitude of agents (between Gates E7 and 8), both inside and outside the harbour, which is within easy walking distance of the hotel. The entrance to the Metro is right next to Harbour Gate E7. It costs 1 euro 40 (one way) to go into Athens - a quick, easy trip and the trains run frequently. If you get off at Thissio or Monastiraki, you can enjoy the Acropolis and the Flea Market which closes at about 21:00. Wear non-slip shoes especially for the Acropolis - the old flagstones are extremely slippery with age. We found a little Museum of Music which has outdoor concerts at night (20 euros, per person, I think) and a fabulous range of Greek music CDs for sale.

To get back to the airport, take Bus X96. The ticket kiosk is right next to the bus stop on the square between Gates E7 and E8. A ticket costs 5 euros (one way) and buses run hourly or half hourly depending on the time of day. It took us a full hour to get to the airport and that wasn't in the rush hour. Don't forget to activate your ticket for the trains (as you enter the station) and the buses (when you climb on). The Metro also goes to the Airport.

Effaristo poly, Glaros! Hope we get to enjoy your Greek hospitality again some time!

Stayed one night at the Glaros in June 2012.Very convenient for ferries,most within 15/20 mins walk.Rooms average, some traffic noise, paid 45 euro but could have got better value in hotels nearby.The area around here has a few sex clubs and bars and ''streetwalkers''.Not a problem for us but maybe for others.Otherwise friendly and helpful staff and breakfast can be taken downstairs or on the street tables outside. O.k. but no big deal.

I phoned from the airport to ask if they had rooms as I knew there were no ferries until the next morning.Check in was quick and painless and the receptionist advised me where I could find a ticket office still open as it was 8pm.
Room was clean and comfortable, quite spacious, with TV and basic toiletries in the bathroom.
Didn't get to try breakfast as I checked out early.
This hotel is very convenient if your ferry is departing from gate E9 - within reasonable walking distance just down the hill if luggage is manageable.
I was going from E3 - the other side of the ferry terminal - so reception ordered me a taxi when I checked out.
Pleasant, clean & economical hotel which is convenient for overnights when connecting with flights and ferries.
