This thread is marked as being about Greece

Hey guys, just wondering if i could get some advice on what the best way to get from athens airport to the evripides hotel...
obviously there are standard options like taxi, and buses...

what would be the cheaper option?
more reliable?
i cant speak or read greek, so would i be able to communicate with anyone at the airport or read bus routes???

any help would be great, thanks

Hey ... . i think the most convenient way would be metro/train.

A one way trip to the centre from the airport will cost you 6 euro . . think its worth it.. will take approx 40 minutes

you would be on the blue line from the airport . . the hotel seems to be near the acropolis . . so either you would need to get off at Akropoli (need to change to red line at syntagma) or at Monastiraki ... same blue line goes there from airport. . u would need to chk with the hotel on the exact address.

hope the above helps. enjoy the stay.

Don't take a taxi. They will overcharge you a lot. When I was there, there was a bus just in front of the airport that went very close to downtown..
