Does anyone know of a hotel near to athens airport ? Also a reputable tour guide or culinary tour.
Yes 330 hundred is expensive. i am staying at the electra palace at 300 p/n for three days so another 300p/n doesnt do much for me. I wanted a rooftop pool with view as i may never be in athens again with my mother, and wanted her to sleep with a view of the parthenon ! thanks any tour guide info out there ?
There are two small hotels within 20 minutes of the airport, the St. Thomas B&B and Peri's Hotel. Both have websites and both are quite affordable. St. Thomas offers a transfer to a Metro station and Peri's offers free shuttle service to and from the airport between 7am and 11pm.
The Attika Avenue Holiday Inn is a bit further away and also has a shuttle.
I stayed in the Peri's last weekend and the hotel was fine, the airport transport efficient, and the people very friendly and helpful.
There's a very nice taverna about five minutes walk away, but other than that nothing within about twenty minutes.
Fine then for a functional overnight stop - we arrived at 6 in the evening and left for a Rafina boat at 6 the next morning - but not really useful for longer unless you have a car.
To locate a tour guide you might contact either of these two agencies which have often received favorable mention on this board. Google will find them for you: Fantasy Travel or Dolphin-Hellas. Both are in Athens.
I'll also vote for the Holiday Inn Attica. It was probably the nicest Holiday Inn I've ever stayed in.
