Some improvements have been made since my last visit, various upgrades to the rooms flat screen TV's a very efficient wi/fi.They now have a restaurant and provide a reasonably priced breakfast served in time to still catch an early ferry.

We stayed here before and after our cruise, each time with 3 rooms. This is a basic hotel. The first time we had a back room and looked out at a wall, no view, but we had arrived late at night. It was good they have 24 hour service and we were able to buy water. The second time we... More

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
