Can anyone recommend a hotel in Corfu town that is close to the airport for our last day and night in August?
Our flight is 6am in the morning on a Sunday, so we will get the bus from San Stefanos on Saturday morning and would like somewhere to spend the day and evening before either getting a taxi at around 4am or even walking distance if it is safe that time of the morning.
My worry is somewhere too remote and the taxi doesn't turn up and there will be no-one at hand to call.
I figured this would be a better option than paying for one more night in San Stefanos then having to get a taxi from there at 3 in the morning, and I didn't want to trust Lord Travel transfers at that time either. Plus it would be nice to spend the evening in Corfu Town as this year we are in Arillas and San Stefanos so won't be visiting Corfu Town as the bus service isn't great from there.
Looking forward to some suggestions.

There are plenty of hotels in Corfu town, I've recently looked at Aquis Mon Repos which is in Garitsa bay about a 15 minute walk into town, if memory serves it's closer to the airport than being in the town centre itself.
Other popular hotels are Cavalieri and Bella Venezia. I'm sure reception will book you a taxi with a reliable company if you ask them to when you check in.

If you wish to be in Corfu Town itself look at the City Marina Hotel. You can book at very reasonable rates through Travel Republic. It is basic but clean. If you are leaving at 3 am I guess you want somewhere reasonably priced.

Thanks for your reply, yes I have looked at all of them and sometimes when they look close to the airport they are not. And yes Sue as we leave early we won't need breakfast facilities or anything fancy, but a nice pool to relax a little bit and close enough for town in the evening, perhaps nice view?
I have booked Folies Corfu Town (forefeit the view) but can cancel with Booking. com if I change my mind.

Carol someone will probably correct me if I am wrong but the Corfu Holiday Palace hotel is very near the airport (almost at the end of the runway) and it has a pool. I think this hotel may even be walking distance from the airport. (not to be confused with the Corfu Palace in the town).

Thanks Sue,
Corfu Folies was only £50 half the price of Corfu Holiday Palace etc, I thought the money we save could be used for a nice last meal.
Bella Venezia is fully booked for that night, that would have been nice to be central, in a great old building.

Follies is a bus ride/taxi from town- nearest hotel to airport is the Bretagne.  If you want to be in town look at Constantinopolis or Hermes for reasonable price and central.   Aquis Mon Repos and Arion are both in Garitsa and easy access to both town and airport
Corfu Holiday Palace and all the Canoni hotels would be a taxi/bus ride

Thanks Jan,
I have found something on Airbnb in Garitsa that sounds nice, overlooking the sea and gardens. I think it is in a private house and they say they will pick up from airport so I will ask if they could come to the bus station instead. That sounds a better location than Follies for getting everywhere.
I just have to join now which is proving to be difficult as I have to upload a photo and don't know how!
