Hello Travellers:

Just found out that I wont be arriving in Athens until 11:20pm but I know that the Metro and the buses close at midnight and I dont want to take the cab because of cost reasons.
What options do I have?
Does anyone know what cheap hotels are located near the airport? Or if I can stay at the airport?

According to the website of the light rail service between Athens and the airport (, the last service from the airport to the city centre departs at 1:20 am. So I guess you'll have enough time to catch a train to the city.

When I went to Athens a month ago, I arrived at about midnight and there is a bus that takes you downtown. It stops just outside the airport.
