After a long ferry ride returning to Athens from Santorini, we stayed in Hotel Niki in Piraeus that was close by the ferry port. The ferry didn’t arrive until well after midnight, so we thought it would be best to stay in a place close to the port instead of trying to get to downtown Athens in the middle of the night. Hotel Niki Piraeus was perfect for our short overnight stay and was accommodating to our late arrival.

Private Room:

Our private room was spotless with a private bathroom. Before checking out the next morning we spent time watching TV and using the great Wifi.

The staff was friendly and helped us check in when we arrived after midnight. The front entrance to the hotel was locked, we just had to push the buzzer for the staff to come help us. The wifi worked really well in our room.

We paid €30 for one night for a private room. It was pricier than what we wanted to pay, but it was one of the few hotels in the area that was near the ferry port.

When we left the ferry port we decided to walk to the hotel. It was dark and quiet and probably would’ve been smarter to take a taxi. We had our Google Map screenshot of where the hotel was supposed to be. After a ten-minute walk we luckily found it. If we were to do it again, we’d take a taxi just to be on the safe side.

Onward to the sketchiest hostel of our entire year of travel: MAGIC BUS HOSTEL IN ISTANBUL, which was shutdown during our stay!
