“Good hotel for overnight stay.”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

My partner and I stayed at this hotel on our first and last days in Greece in June 2014 whilst on holiday in the Greek islands.The hotel was a good base and a good breakfast was provided.The rooms do not have views but it did not matter for 1 night.The prices were very good.About 10-15 minutes walk from the port,thr road up from the port is vert uneven and can be difficult with suitcases.Would recommend for 1 or 2 nights.We got the metro into Athens on one night.Ate in Piraeus on the other night.The staff were very friendly and helpful.They spoke excellent English.

We stayed for one night before our cruise. The service was very good. We were traveling with children and they were very helpful. Rooms were clean and good walking distance to ferry and a few places to eat.
Overall would recommend this hotel.

Very well located, big and clean room. Excellent staff. We didn't take breakfast because we consider it expensive and little, but the rest was simply perfect. The neighbourhood is very calm and people really nice.

A useful hotel for arriving and departing from Athens. In a couple of nights stay you can see the Piraeus Archeaological Museum and take the metro to central Athens. Piraeus is not only cheaper than Athens the air is fresher, there is the market and restaurants. Faros II is a functional hotel which is useful for coming and going. You can leave your luggage after checkout and the reception is fairly helpful.

Room Tip: Better at the front of the hotel.

I will try to judge the hotel as urban planner, engineer and visitor.
First, the location is very good, close to the harbor and the beautiful Passalimani!!! The under construction, metro station near the hotel, it will do even better in terms of location.
Secondly, the hotel and its equipment, even in the rooms, are quite old, and broken like in our case. Also, the room was too small for double if you don't pay a lot attention, you will hit your legs in the furnitures!!!
Thirdly, and last, as visitor, I didn't satisfied!!! :/ The staff, it wasn't so friendly to make me feel like my home. The towels in the first night was threadbare, and the hanger in the bathroom was broken. There wasn't enough space in the room... Also, the sound of the room was zero. And finally to finish, the bathroom door had rotted and smelled very bad.
This hotel, is good only for a night, until to take your boat for an island.
Advise: ask for a room with view at Kolokotronis street...At the back side, there was a under construction building....

10-15 minutes by foot from the ferry terminal. Neighborhood isn't exactly nice, especially when arriving from one of the islands, but I guess it will do for one night. Requested a non-smoking room but everything smells of cigarettes, there's even an ashtrey. Other than that, the room is small but clean, airconditioned and seems to be quiet as well. Only real complaint I have is that my mattress is damaged, otherwise this hotel is really good value for money and an option you should consider when travelling on a budget.
