  • Pines Hotel - Far From Airport


    “Far from Airport 12.4 miles (19.96 Km)”
    Be forewarned that it is NOT close to the airport. I paid a cab driver 55 Euros one-way at night to go to this hotel. From what I could tell, there isn't public transportation near it either.

    Pines Hotel
    Chelidonous Artemidos 2 Nea Kifissia
    Athens. 14564 GR
    (210) 620-5011

    On one side the hotel, faces the freeway and on the other side it faces the parking lot (Garden View). If you paid for Garden View, make them give it to you.
    Room Tip: Hotel close to Airport is Holiday Inn (approximately 10 minutes away) or Softel at Airport

    Gewarnt, dass es nicht in der Nähe des Flughafens sein. Ich bezahlte einen Taxifahrer 55 Euro one-way in der Nacht, in diesem Hotel zu gehen. Von dem, was ich sagen konnte, es ist nicht die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel in der Nähe es auch nicht.

    Auf der einen Seite des Hotels, steht vor der Autobahn und auf der anderen Seite steht es auf dem Parkplatz (Garden View). Wenn Sie sich für Garden View bezahlt, damit sie es dir geben.
    Zimmer Tipp: Hotel in der Nähe zum Flughafen ist das Holiday Inn (ca. 10 Minuten) oder Softel am Flughafen

    Tenga presente que no está cerca del aeropuerto. Yo pagué a un taxista 55 euros de ida por la noche para ir a este hotel. De lo que pude ver, no hay transporte público cerca de él tampoco.

    A un lado del hotel, se enfrenta a la autopista y en el otro lado los que se enfrenta el estacionamiento (con vistas al jardín). Si usted pagó con vistas al jardín, que lo entreguen a usted.
    Sugerencia: hotel cerca del aeropuerto es Holiday Inn (a unos 10 minutos) o en el aeropuerto de Softel

    Soyez prévenu que ce n'est pas près de l'aéroport. J'ai payé un chauffeur de taxi 55 euros aller simple le soir pour aller à cet hôtel. D'après ce que j'ai pu dire, il n'est pas le transport en commun à proximité de l'autre.

    D'un côté de l'hôtel, donne sur l'autoroute et de l'autre côté il donne sur le parking (vue jardin). Si vous avez payé pour Vue sur le jardin, leur faire donner à vous.
    Astuce chambre: Hôtel proche de l'aéroport de Holiday Inn (environ 10 minutes) ou à l'aéroport de Softel

    Να προειδοποιήσει ότι ΔΕΝ είναι κοντά στο αεροδρόμιο. Πλήρωσα ένας οδηγός ταξί 55 ευρώ μονόδρομο τη νύχτα για να πάει σε αυτό το ξενοδοχείο. Από ό, τι θα μπορούσα να πω, δεν υπάρχει δημόσια συγκοινωνία κοντά σε αυτό, είτε.

    Από τη μία πλευρά του ξενοδοχείου, αντιμετωπίζει τον αυτοκινητόδρομο και από την άλλη πλευρά που αντιμετωπίζει το πάρκινγκ (με θέα στον κήπο). Αν πληρώσατε για θέα στον κήπο, να τους δώσουμε σε εσάς.
    Συμβουλή δωματίου: Ξενοδοχείο κοντά στο αεροδρόμιο, το Holiday Inn (περίπου 10 λεπτά) ή Softel στο αεροδρόμιο

3 euro ticket

by apexro

I read that the 3 euro ticket is valid for 24 hours, on all type of transport (tram, buses, metro, including one way trip to the airport. Is it true? The second question is "24 hours" means the day when you use it, or 24 hours from the time when you start to use it?

Re: 3 euro ticket

by leics

You can see what the ticket covers here:

The 24-hour period starts when you first validate (date-stamp) the ticket at the start of your first journey.

Re: 3 euro ticket

by apexro

Thank you. It is exactly what i knew, but i read something interesting here:
Look at the end of Bus- Trolley (I understood from there that i can use it one way to/or the airport by the express bus).
And i wanted a confirmation.

Re: 3 euro ticket

by leics

makes it very clear that airport bus lines are excluded.

Re: 3 euro ticket

by mindcrime

some years before you could use the airportbus ticket for 24h, but NOT anymore.
by the way the ticket for the bus to the airport costs 3.20euro.

the normal ticket (for bus, trolley bus, subway, metro) costs 1 euro and it’s valid for 90minutes. You validate it just once and then you can change to any of the above during these 90 minutes (not to the airport though)

Some other useful tickets/cards(not for buses/metro to airport):
24h ticket(for buses/tram/metro/subway): 3euro
weekly ticket(for buses/tram/metro/subway): 10euros
Montly card(for buses/tram/metro/subway) 35euro
Montly card(for metro only) 30euro
Monthly card(for bus/trolley bus only) 15euro
Yearly card(for buses/tram/metro/subway) 350euro >>>> this is the only one that includes the bus to the airport but I guess you wont stay here that much :)

Re: 3 euro ticket

by Mozumbus

we used the 3 euro ticket, which is worth it especially in a busy day, and it remains valid for the next 24 hours of the first use. However, there are some long distance buses, called express buses, which are excluded, e.g. E22

as mentioned, airport transfers are now excluded. I understand that previously 3.2 euro airport bus ticket was also good for next 24 hours of traveling, which is unfortunately no more the case now

Hope this helps

Re: 3 euro ticket

by Durfun

A single metro ticket to the airport costs 5 EUR per person; however for 2 people is costs 8 EUR.

Re: 3 euro ticket

by apexro

Thank you very much for all of your answers. What you told me is exactly what i knew. The only thing is that reading different information on two different sites i wanted to be sure which one is correct.

Re: 3 euro ticket

by leics

Of course. As a general rule I always go by the info on the site of the carrier or official city tourist info or bus company etc. Other information websites (such as the one you linked) are not always regularly updated.

Re: 3 euro ticket

by mindcrime

the funny thing is that the official sites in Greece dont update very often! :)

Re: 3 euro ticket

by leics

Agreed....but more often than some non-official sites, some of which have veeeeeery out-of-date info!


Re: 3 euro ticket

by mindcrime

my Athens page is very fast on this! Sometimes I wonder if it's worth the effort :)

Re: 3 euro ticket

by leics

It's always worth the effort, imo.


Travel Tips for Athens


by Lilasel

Athens isn't anymore what we've got used to see. It is much more better. Greeks have done a lot for preparing Athens for the Olympics. They turn a city into one of the most walkable, livable, exciting, art, music and entertainment centers in the world. They have created a model that other cities are sure to follow. With the new highways that divert traffic from the downtown they have not only made the city streets safer and the air cleaner but they have made it easier to get in and out of town by car, bus or taxi. The new metro makes the trip to the airport and the port easier shows new neighborhoods to visitors. And the coastal tram... Bravo!

Athenians have good reason to be proud of their city.

Plaka...right under...

by kartermar

Plaka...right under Acropolis
The Acropolis,
Archeological Museum of Athens,
Sounio What I hate and love the most is how noisy Greeks can be. Shouting at each other, talking on their mobiles, crazy - lunnetic drivers. But what I really like about them is that they are always humans that care about each other. If you ask for help they will help you if they can ... they won't just ignore you only to get rid of you. But they still have to work on their manners... :-)

Walking Tours

by janbeeu

Athens is well suited to walking, as most of the sights are centrally located. The Unification of Archaeological Sites is a project currently underway to link the ancient sites of the city by a four-kilometre (2.5 mile) traffic-free promenade. The first phase of the route, leading from the Acropolis metro station along Dionissiou Areopagitou on the south side of the Acropolis, has already been inaugurated.

There are no organised walking tours as such, although numerous companies and travel agencies offer their own programme of tours and can arrange tailor-made tours for groups. See Travel Agency page (below) for more info.

For guided tours, visitors are advised to contact the Association of Tourist Guides of Athens, 9A Apollonos street (tel: 210 322 9705 or 0090), which provides guides for individual and group tours and supplies licensed guides to the travel agencies.

It is often more satisfactory to go walking alone, armed with a map and a guidebook. Syntagma Square makes a logical starting point. From here walkers can either advance up Vassilissis Sofias and then left through the well-to-do district around Kolonaki Square and on to Lykavittos Hill, or go south along Amalias past the National Gardens turning right towards Plaka and the Acropolis. Another route to the Acropolis might start at the bazaar on Monastiraki square, leading uphill past the Agora. A wander around the Plaka, using the main thoroughfares of Adrianou and Kidathinaion for orientation, is equally rewarding.

Climbing up Fillopapou or Lykavittos Hill or up to the Acropolis is something you do not want to do in the afternoon, the warmest part of the day. Do this in the morning and spend your afternoon (for example) in the sun-sheltered small Plaka and Monastiraki streets.

visit the Greek...


visit the Greek Islands.
The three islands : Hydra, Aegina and Poros can be (too) quickly visited by boat in the same day. Each has its own style, its own beauty, its own atmosphere.
On the photograph : the approach of Hydra of which harbor is constructed on the slope of the mountain.

Athens Tip

by Michael_D

The THEATER OF DIONYSUS was carved out of the side of the mount..inasmuch as I am an actor...It was quite a humbling experience to realise that Aristophanes was doing stand up comedy on that very spot only a couple of thousand years before...(bada-boom!)
