This is a basic, simple and little bit dated hotel located in a backstreet in Piraeus. I would recommend this hotel for a 1 night stay when taking the ferry to the islands or returning to the airport.

Whereas I had asked for a non smoking room, we had one with an awful cigarette smoke smell. Even the pillow was impregnated. It's really a pity. The other point was the night club near the hotel: there was a lot of fuss outside during the night...not very reassuring! Nevertheless the hall has been recently redesigned and is very modern...

Simple but clean and tidy. Good value for money. Ideal for business trip if you will go to the hotel just for a shower and sleep. I will go again. Close to the center and port. No parking but easy to park close to the hotel after office hours.

It was my first time in Athens and I stayed at his hotel one night (Sep. 17, 2014) because I traveled to Santorini the next day. Therefore, the hotel’s location is very convenient for those taking the ferry to the islands. Piraeus port is just five-minute walk from this hotel. The hotel is accessible from the airport using public transportation.... More

I have stayed at the Faros 1 several times and, although this is a budget hotel with fairly small rooms, they are always clean, have fresh bed linen and towels and the water is always hot. The staff are very friendly and always helpful. I use this hotel for single night stays when journeying too or from the Greek islands.... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night in order to catch an early morning ferry like most people staying around Pireaus. Although it is cheap, it's location opposite a strip club meant loud music and voices can be heard throughout the night. We tried to have breakfast at 6am (which was the stated time) but we were told by... More

The room we occupied was extremely basic. The bed was okey and the bedding and towels were a little worn. The view from the window was old, ugly and dirty buildings. Breakfast was also very basic, but was not included in the room rate. I guess it is okey for overnight between airport and port for boarding ferries and cruise... More

I rented this place at 45 euro a night because I was arriving at 1am and leaving to the islands at 7am. It is cheap, it is in a sketchy alley that has a few loud pubs. Don't walk at night in the area. The only room left after our late arrival smelled like am ash tray, but it was... More

One of a cluster of hotels around the Notara / Trikoupi intersection. About half a mile from metro and ferries so quieter and cleaner than the port centre. We had a great deal for clean rooms, perfect for an overnight between airport and ferry.

This is an economical place to stay if you are arriving or leaving by ferry. It is a bit of a hike from the ferry terminal and on a somewhat out-of-the-way back street. However, once you arrive, it is a quiet place to escape from the crazy traffic of Piraeus. The rooms are spacious and spotless. There is air conditioning... More
