Just five minutes’ walk to the Megaro Moussikis metro station (blue line) which takes you directly from and to the airport in 35 minutes. The metro also takes you in two stops to Syntagma Square (three minutes), the very heart of Athens, and to Monastiraki Square, the historic core of the city (four minutes). The metro system connects you easily to the Port of Piraeus, the Suburban Railway, the main train station, and the tram that takes you to the coastal area of greater Athens.

The airport bus X95 drops you on Vassilisis Sophias Avenue within a five minute walk from the hotel.
