Faros II Hotel
Ranked #16 of 27 Hotels in Piraeus
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

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.

We arrived late and were able to get food which was great. We were only staying 7 hours to catch ferry in morning so didn't have breakfast. Ten minutes walk to ferry gates or 4 euro taxi ride. Only complaint would be that air con was so noisy that could not it on, so the room was pretty stuffy. Very cheap so wasn't expecting much. Overall, Happy to stay here for overnight as we did .

The concierge didn't know the locations of the respective ferry compagnies. Should be a fairly basic service in a Piraeus hotel? We asked for breakfast at 07:00, but didn't get it untill 07:20, when we had to go. Were offered coffee to go, though.

3 of 4 lightbulbs in our room were missing.

First, Piraeus itself is a bit of an ugly town. The only reason to be here is for the ferry. That said, and for that purpose, this was a good hotel. First, I got an extremely good online price deal so it was extremely inexpensive. Second, it's clean, the air conditioning works, and the staff were friendly and helpful, bringing a beer to the room rather than have me wait for it in the lobby. The attached restaurant served a very nice Greek salad and ouzo, which was a great way to start my Greek vacation. There was an evening wedding at a nearby church which made this otherwise dreary city look a little, no a lot, nicer.

The rooms are typically fairly small, with doors that conduct noise, like you find all over Europe in budget hotels. But it was all decently clean and I had a good night's sleep before the early morning ferry, which is the only reason to stay here. I would recommend it if you are not looking for absolute quiet and luxury, but a decent cheap place near the ferry.

Stayed at faros 2 for 2 nights and had 2 rooms. The service desk is always attended to with great mutilanguage service. They offer good breakfast for 6 euro pp, and a reasonable menu for room service.

The rooms are average, but clean.
The location of the hotel is good for the ferries. It's a few minutes walk to bus stops and about a 15-20 minute walk to the train station which we took to Athens and back. For the prices of the hotel, it is very good.

This hotel is definitely very well located to the ferry terminal, and is relatively cheap.

Otherwise, it is an okay hotel. It is pretty dated and the room we stayed in was very very small, and smelt like stale cigarette smoke despite being a non-smoking room.

The staff were courteous although not particularly friendly. The neighbourhood around the hotel is quite run-down.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel for its convenience for ferry passengers, but not much else.

Stayed there one night only (taking the boat to Santorini in early morning). Clean and well furnished room for 30 euros per night. Had two beds and balcony facing West (good for drying clothes in the afternoon/evening), on the 5th floor - with elevator. Polite and respectful people at the reception, very professional.
Be aware it's about 20-25 mins walking from the subway station, but not hard to find with a map or asking people the street name.
