Convenient to the port

Posted Sep 9, 2012
Got in really late to Piraeus from a ferry, and this hotel was nice and close to the port and has 24-hour check-in. Great, friendly staff.

Not a good choice.

Posted Jul 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
Really poor choice. Air Conditioning never really kicked in (Piraeus in the summer is very hot); room was very small (two singles requested, only a double bed available) and would not recommend for anyone.

You get what you pay for - adequate for Pireaus

Posted Jul 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
If you just need a cheap, convenient place walking distance to catch your boat in the morning then this is the perfect hotel. Anything other than that I would stay somewhere else. The neighborhood wasn't bad but definitely not the best place to stay. Hotel room and stairwell smelled like smoke and felt like you were staying in your grandma's apartment in Florida on a hot summer day. The A/C worked but not well. It was perfect for the price but if you're picky or plan on staying more than a night there I'd look elsewhere

Faros Piraues

Posted Nov 23, 2011 on Hotels.com
We booked the hotel for proximity to the cruise terminal as there were rolling strikes at the time so from this hotel it is possible to walk to the terminal. It suited that requirement perfectly. Everything was OK except that the room was minute. We were only in it two nights so no problem anyway. Perfect location for ferries to the islands also.

Faros 2 hotel

Posted Oct 12, 2011 on Hotels.com
Very central hotel if going for a ferry. Cross the road at Gate E10 (RBS on the corner) Faros 2 is 3rd street on the right and the hotel is about 50 yards on the left of the road. Clean rooms with comfortable beds and a good hot powerful shower. Quite a variety of rooms some a bit small and others huge with jacuzzi bath, excellent air conditioning and lots of mirrors! The boys on the front desk were all very friendly and helpful and let us leave our luggage on the last day as we were not flying until the evening. It is worth taking a walk to the marina for good restaurants. Turn left out of the hotel and take first on the left again up over the hill across the busy road and down the other side. It takes less than ten minutes and is like a different world. Lovely at night time.

Faros 2 - basic but excellent

Posted Oct 12, 2011 on Hotels.com
We had an excellent one night stay here on our way between Athens airport and catching a ferry. The room was fairly basic but had everything we needed - bed, shower, linen - and very clean. The receptionist was incredibly helpful and could answer all of our questions. The neighbourhood is a bit run down, but it was a 10-15 minute walk or a short taxi to the main port so very convenient. All in all excellent value for money, highly recommended!

Rocks in the room???

Posted Sep 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
We had an interesting stay here, although I would still recommend it! We had an early morning cruise so chose this hotel for the purpose of being close to Piraeus Port - it was about a 10-15mins walk. The hotel was very clean, with clean linen and towels. The reception area was nice, and the staff at the reception desk were very helpful in directing us to food and also allowing us to use the printer. The hotel is a 5mins walk to shops and restaurants. The aspects of the hotel we found strange was that our room (101) has a specific theme to it which we found really bizarre. When first opening the door you are faced with a wall of rocks.Yes..a wall of real rocks..the bed is circular with a mirror on the roof above it, tiger print cushions etc and plants around the room giving it a slight creepy sex hotel feel. Apparently there are only 2 rooms like this (lucky us) and the rest are your normal double bed etc. room. We also had a 2 person jacuzzi in the middle of the room (amidst the rocks!) and both windows opened to nothing allowing no natural light at all. We had a leak in the bathroom after showering, but the staff were keen to look into it when I told them about it. We were only there for one night and it was fine. Im sure the other rooms are perfectly fine as the cleanliness etc was great. We just had a strange room which made us a little uncomfortable. We probably could have moved if we had asked, but didn't bother as it was just one night.

This hotel is very conveniently located for the ferries, and you'll get to downtown Athens handily, too, with the metro or bus. There are several nice restaurants just a few minutes away. The room was clean and has A/C, and the bathroom was adequate too. You probably don't want to stay much beyond one night on your way to or from the ferry, but for that purpose this hotel is great.

Perfect for ferry the next morning

Posted Jul 29, 2011 on Hotels.com
We stayed here because we had to catch a ferry at 7:30 the next morning. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. He spoke great English, told us were to go eat and helped us find our ferry in the morning. The room was all we needed for a one night stay just to sleep and was quite comfortable and clean.

Pleasant stay!

Posted Jul 25, 2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel manager made us feel at home. We were offered a coffee while waiting and he explained how to get to the closest bus station. Very pleasant stay. Room a little small but clean and convenient! Thank you so much!
