    The friendly approach provided by the man in charge during the day. It is a quite simple hotel but very handy for anyone who wants to stay for a short time in Piraeus waiting for the ferry to the islands.

    No. It was up to what I was looking for.

    We travelled with two children (2 and 9 years old). Very welcoming, helpful and friendly staff at the reception. Spacious room, very clean. Short walk to the harbour and the ferries to go to the islands.

    Price was right for Piraeus. Manager is very nice and very helpful about travel, etc. We left the morning of the taxi strike, and he was able to help us figure out a route out of town that avoided the trouble spots.

    Rooms were clean, but bathrooms smelled funny. Rooms are very, very basic. Traveling companion saw roaches on stairs, but we saw none in room. Sun/security gates are hard to open so can't look out the windows. Both Faros hotels are walkable from gate 10 at Piraeus. If you are arriving at any other gate you will need a taxi to get there! Our ride from Gate 2 at midnight was at least 15 minutes - to walk it would have been much longer.

    Good shower, friendly night receptionist.

    We can't recommend this hotel to anybody. We had requested a non-smoking room, but got a tiny room that smelled like ashtrey. If you are in a hurry don't even think about having breakfast at the hotel. It took over 20 minutes to get 6 euro basic breakfast. The morning receptionist (who was responsible for preparing the breakfast too) exceptionally impolite, annoying and ignoring the fact that after his lazyness in the kitchen we were already in a hurry to catch a flight (we asked to pay the breakfast right away and he didn't except it and was denying that we are in no hurry). Piraeus is full of hotels in this price category - so never to Faros II again.

    Wonderful, very friendly reception and treatment during our stay. Great service, sweet with the children, free internet. Lovely people, geeat breakfast. Recommended!

    The location in itself is not very attractive, especially if you are a stranger in Athens / Piraeus. But close enough to the ferrys to walk there with your luggage.

    Convenient location near the port, spacious and clean room, helpful staff.

    Very close to pireaus port so ideal for a one night stay before your ferry to the islands. The transfer from the airport was great value formoney

    It is not located on the prettiest of streets

    Good hotel with nice staff, near to the ferries.

    All the staff and owners were very friendly and helped out with directions to ferries and cruise ships, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were comfortable and the 4 bed room we booked was very spacious. Hotel was near to cruise ship terminal which was handy as we were going on a cruise the next morning.

    The owner and his family did all they could to help me get to the correct ferry terminal and on time. The owner's brother was commandeered to drive me to the correct place, since there was a taxi strike going on and he didn't want me to have to walk so far with my luggage.

    The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly

    There was not much space in the room and some of the lights did not work.

    good value for money

    a little far to walk with your cases from where the bus drops you

  • Single

    The hotel at Faros II was exactly perfect for what I needed. The location, near to the centre of Pireaus was great, as was the proximity to both the old Harbour and the area for ferries. While the hotel is not by any means "fancy" this is more than made up for by the friendly and helpful attitude of the staff.

    Room was clean, position it's perfect for take a ferry to the island, very close to gate 10, 15 minute walk to gate 7 where fast ferry leaves....

    Staff was not friendly, breakfast was very poor...

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Best wonderful, friendly family staff. Best restaurant in town. Best location in town-bus to old town right in front. Port facitlities right in front. Beach access nearby. Fun watching the port activity every afternoon when everyone gets off the ferries from Capri or Amalfi Coast. Can't say enough about the great time we had there.
