Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2017

Nothing fancy but very well located, nice restaurant with hours to accommodate late comers transitioning on/off the ferry. Good service and helpful front desk. Walkable to airport bus stop (X-96) perfect straight shot to/from airport for only 6 Euros. Port only a short cab ride from hotel but also walkable IF you have a sense of direction upon arrival. Overall clean, inexpensive, lots of restaurants, bars and shopping in vicinity.

Room Tip: Ask if the rooms are smoking or not. I did not and mine had a smell of smoke that I did not notice...

We thank the Faros Hotel 1 for thee hospitality when we arrived in Athens for 1 night from Turkey and found that the ferries were on strike for another 2 days, our first night at another hotel luckily for us was fully booked for the future and weren't we glad, the Faros 1 Hotel was a gem after our first night, lovely and clean, modern and staff amazingly friendly. Our room was on the 8th floor and they had a lift to the 7th and it was not a problem only 2 rooms on the 8th floor so very quiet, breakfast was included in our room charge and was excellent my wife and I only ordered 1 breakfast as it was plenty for us what I didn't eat my wife liked and vice versa. Reception staff wee very informative and kept us updated on the strike so we could continue our journey to Mykonos. Wonderful hotel we wish we had seen this hotel instead of the first one we stayed at.

We thought this was a nice place to stay in Piraeus if you're planning to take a boat to the islands the next morning. It's clean and friendly and very close to the port. It's also near nice restaurants and the metro into Athens.

WE needed a hotel to spend the day after arriving by cruise ship at 8 am with a departure from Athens Airport at 11.20 pm. We were guaranteed a 12 midday checkin but requested earlier if possible. We arrived at 9.20 am and after a complimentary coffee were shown to our room 10 minutes later. The room was bright and very clean . The bathroom was well fitted and contained all the essentials. The price was terrific value as were the meals served from the café attached.

Returning to Athens for the second year running where else would I choose to stay but the excellent Faros 1? Just like last year the room was spacious and comfortable with excellent standards of cleanliness. Free toiletries such as soap and shower gel were replaced daily. The free wifi performed well throughout my five night stay and the fridge in the room was ideal for morning fruit juice and a nice glass of Retsina in the evening. Just a few minutes walk from Piraeus port I used my stay to make a day trip to the nearby island of Aegina this time though a number of other islands are possible. This time I also made several visits to the impressive Zea Marina which is within a ten minute walk of the hotel and boasts countless places to eat and drink while admiring the huge range of boats moored there. The only improvement to the hotel I would like would be tea/coffee facilities in the room (though if you have room for a travel kettle and a cup you could get round this). Will certainly be returning to this hotel on future Athens trips.

Room Tip: Back rooms look onto another building but benefit from lack of street noise.
