“nice but noisey”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

+ close to harbour and metro
+ walking distance to the nice old harbour for restaurants
+ very friendly staff
+ clean
+ everything you need for a transit-night

- so loud we could hardly find any sleep. I have to ad that our room was facing the street, it was saturday night and there was a club just across the street..
- a bit hard to find, dodgy, smelly area. we did'nt feel unsafe though

Room Tip: Choose a room that is NOT facing the street!!

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your feedback following your recent stay with us at Piraeus Faros Hotel. I am extremely concerned to read of your experience in our hotel and really consider carefully about that.
Like i told (in other guest comment) we can't do as much we want to do for the area usually believe it or not here is peaceful but sometimes don't know why our neighbors have a noisy acting. The only that we can do is to talk them and that's it, but it's up from them, that is a common problem for the hotels in the area. But is not dangerous is just local noisy people, they are not going to heart nobody.
We improved the transfer service from the last year with the door to door transfer service and we are thinking to improve it more (still thinking) for the next year in order to avoid the walking in the dark Piraeus streets.
Also had notice that our services you well affected find it and that is our aim.

Really appreciate your experience review that helps me (like was told in other clients previous reviews) to think and improve our services for the future, really appreciate.


Kind regards
Stratos Moutafis

We stayed at this hotel twice for our trip. This hotel is perfect for early departures on a ferry or for a quick stay and airport departure. We stayed here twice coming and going to Greece. We were very happy with the room, staff, price and the location. We had good access to public transportation despite all of our very early departures and late arrivals. There is also a great little place, a block away, on the street across from the ferries, where you can make your own salad (a nice treat while traveling). We would definitely stay here again.

arrived really late (1am) at this hotel, after having booked it a day beforehand through some booking site. The reception was staffed, and we received the key immediately. Rooms are basic (as expected), but very clean.

It was nice to see that we received an upgrade to a bigger room.

The next morning, the hotel had arranged a taxi to the embarkation point of the port (1 minute care ride); the even offered to arrange the boat tickets (which i had already arranged before).

Overall, Faros provided exactly what we needed.

perfect to spend a night near the departure of speed boats towards the cycladic islands.
The greek salad is gigantic (compared to all the other ones in the islands) but breakfast not that good (specially the orange "juice").
The staff speaks good english and is welcoming.

Excellent value for money & well placed for the port of Piraeus. We booked the Faros 1 after a late flight into Athens & because of its close proximity to Piraeus port - we needed a base to wait until the hydrofoil to Poros commenced. We did not arrive until 5am in the morning & the Faros 1 were more than accomodating & happy to serve us a cold beer! Although a fleeting stay the room itself, although not luxurious (it doesn't claim to be), was clean & tidy & the beds more than comfortable to get a few hours sleep on route. The room was air conditioned & slept 3 without any additional charge. If you want a reasonably priced clean & tidy base to stay pre cruise / transfer to other islands or even as a base to explore the city it is fine. We caught the X95 bus from the airport & the hotel was a 10 min walk from the bus stop if you know where you are going (do not make our mistake & forget the directions!!!). It is also only a couple of blocks back from the port & within walking distance - per other reviews pavements etc uneven but it only takes approx 10 mins depending on which gate you require - we managed it with 3 suitcases & hand luggage although it was hard work!

It's not very far away from the harbor, can easily find restaurants nearby. It is alright to walking from the harbor if you are not with too many luggages. Otherwise, it's gonna be a bit tough, especially with big suitcase. Staffs there are also very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clearn, newly decor ated but very simple. It would be better that if there is a hair-dryer.

This hotel is perfect for when you are going to the islands from the harbor. I've been living at this place many times, and the standard is great. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean with AC. They also offer a cheap great breakfast.

Is is also very easy to take the metro in to the heart of Athens, or simply take a taxi. It's pretty cheap!

Highly recommend this Faros 1!!
