Piraeus Dream City Hotel
Ranked #4 of 27 Hotels in Piraeus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 10, 2008

We needed to be close to the ferry port and Piraeus Dream fit the bill perfectly, but we got what we paid for and we didn't pay much. The hotel was no doubt a budget option. It was clean and had a great location. If you want a service-oriented, comfortable and/or spacious hotel, look elsewhere. If you want a cheap, clean good night's sleep and easy access to early morning ferry departures or late night ferry arrivals, the Piraeus Dream is good for one night. Novice Athens travellers note: finding anything in Athens can be tricky. get turn by turn directions with visual markers if you can. guide maps in your native language won't help when everything is in Greek letters.

I'm only going to reiterate what others have said about Piraeus dream. Great hotel because of its location if you are about to catch a ferry into the islands. The rooms are quite nice too. We were out of the hotel and in the port in less than 5 minutes. It was easy to spot the agent's office where we got our tickets.

No brainer if I am in Piraeus and need a hotel before getting a ferry out.

The X96 dropped us not very far but as others have said, this is a bit hard to find. It was easy to ask around and get here eventually. It was harder because we arrived here at 11ish in the night.

This hotel was very convenient for our early morning ferry. It was quite a walk from the metro with our suitcases, so we cabbed to the ferry. Also, a cab to the Piraeus night-life was only 5 euros and worth going out.

Rooms were basic, as you would expect for their rate, but there were a couple nice and unexpected touches. We had a tea set-up in our room, and there was a mini-bar with excellent prices. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The showers were incredibly small. Breakfast was the usual but included in the hotel rate.

The location is lacking of any charm, but it's worth the sacrifice to be 5 minutes from those early ferries. Overall a good value.

We had a nice stay at the Piraeus Dream Hotel. Here are pluses and minuses:

+ We got a nice rate on booking.com -- better than the hotel would give us calling on the phone and speaking Greek.
+ It's very close to the port -- easily walkable. It's also close to METRO station.
+ The desk staff is helpful
+ The hotel has free wifi for guests, which is frequently NOT the case in Greece.
+ The breakfast room is excellent.
+ The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable (although I could have slept on just about anything horizontal at that point).
+ Room decor is pretty cool actually, and the rooms were impeccably clean.
+ There are non-smoking rooms. This is rarely the case in Greece.

- The immediate neighborhood is kinda scary looking and the views aren't much.

The thing to keep in mind about staying here is that you should only be staying in Piraeus because you need a stopping point either before you catch a ferry (early) or after you arrive from a ferry (late). It's NOT a destination in itself. But if you have reason to be staying in Piraeus, the Piraeus Dream Hotel is a restful bargain of a hotel that has everything you need.

This hotel was perfect for us. We stayed there for 7 nights and I really don't have any complaints. Yes the bathroom is very small but that is a minor issue. The hotel and the rooms are very clean and they come in every day to clean your room and replenish towels. The staff at the front desk are very helpful and will answer any questions you have. The price was right and I would definitely stay here again if I was ever in Greece. I really don't have anything bad to say about this hotel. I would recomend this hotel for anyone who was staying in Piraeus with intentions of going out and seeing the city. You are only about a 7-10 minute walk from the metro and you could be in Athens in about 11 mins via the metro. No need for taxis.
Great place!!

This hotel was really good. Although a bit hard to find and in an area that could be the red-light-ish district, we never felt unsafe here once. The hospitality was good, and the amenities were great.

Pros
+ Good bed
+ Great lighting effects in the room
+ Plasma TV
+ Clean
+ Nearby location to Piraeus - easily a 10-20 minute walk depending on ferry dock
+ Great Service

Cons
+ Bathroom is really small
+ Funny noises from the wall - probably rats

This hotel was seriously a great place to stay. We loved the bed, lighting, location, and the fact that everything around was easily accessible. Granted the hotel is on a little side street and nobody knows where it is, but once you find it, you'll realize this boutique
is a gem. Especially for the price and location.

The only thing that probably needs to be rethought are the bathrooms which are tiny. Otherwise, everything was great.
