“Handy to the port”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Although I had trouble finding the place, the locals were very friendly and helpful in getting me there eventually! My room was plain but comfortable with a nice bathroom and lots of hot water. I even had a balcony although the view was very ordinary being on the side of the building. Nice to be able to step outside when I wanted to. Walking distance to the train and the port and 5 euros by taxi to the port in the rain. Not a place you'd go for a holiday but fine to access the port quickly.

Easy to find if you walk along the port side to gate E10. Cross the main road to the RBS corner and take third on the right up the hill. Faros is about 50 yds on the left side of the road. The boys on reception were friendly and helpful and the rooms clean with loads of hot water and a good powerful shower. The rooms varied in style and on our 2nd visit we had a huge room with jacuzzi bath and mirrored ceiling and walls! Faros is in an excellent location between the marina and the ferry port. It was about a fifteen minute walk with luggage to Gate E7 for the ferry to Santorini. If you come out of the hotel and take first left and walk up the hill and over the main road and down the other side you come to the marina and a lovely promenade with a good selection of tavernas and cafes. Well worth a visit just to see a different side to Piraeus. We were allowed to leave our luggage on the day of departure as we were not flying until night time. This gave us an extra day to explore Athens. A good hotel to choose if you are going for a ferry.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights just before we went on a cruise and it was conveniently a 5 minute walk to the port. The staff were extremely nice. One man in particular was very helpful and told us what we should see in Athens. The room was very clean and provided extra pillows and blankets. The room had an ashtray but we couldn't smell cigarette thank goodness. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure was pretty good. There was a supermarket just down the road. The hotel also had a lift! They don't provide breakfast but you can buy it downstairs as they had a menu for food and coffee.

We stayed here before catching a ferry early in the morning. We were very happy with our choice. It is a budget hotel so it has basic rooms. For a quick 1 night stop it worked really well. The location was fine, about a 20 min walk to the ferry in a residential mixed area. We were able to find decent restaurants close by for dinner.

We selected a non-smoking preference when making the reservation but were only offered smoking rooms when we arrived late at night with no option to change hotels. Even if you are a smoker, i bet it's hard to get a good night's sleep in an ashtray, which is how this rooms felt/smelled.

With an early morning ferry the next day, we stayed one night in Faros II in Piraeus. Faros II, located just a block and a half from Faros I, is a small, budget hotel just two blocks from the ferry strip although depending on which ferry gate, it is close or up to a 15 minute walk. It is at the far end of the ferry area from the Metro station. It is close to a decent taverna and plenty of stores on the ferry strip.

The lobby and common facilities are good. There is one computer in the common area with internet access. The studio room we shared contained four single beds, arranged in pairs against different walls, with the L-shape of the room providing a slight feeling of separation. There are two air conditioners, one above each pair of beds, a closet, desk, a few nightstands, and refrigerator. One small bathroom. The room is fairly no-frills, dormitory style, with limited but reasonable amount of space. Reception was open 24/7 and were helpful the few times we asked.

Faros II met our needs as a budget pit stop from the airport to the ferry.
