Staff give us sandwiches when I check out early. They are so considerate and helpful. And they help us for the taxi arrangement to the port as well. (But euro 6 is a bit expensive as the driver don't accept meter fare, the meter shows the fare should be euro 2.50). Room is comfort and we could have a nice sleep. only the bathroom is a little bit old and dirt on the curtain. But that's fine to us as we are using shower.
We stayed here as we were arriving late into Athens & leaving early the following morning to catch a ferry to Mykonos. The staff were very helpful & picked us up from the airport & took us to the port the next day. The rooms were modern clean and comfortable. There was even breakfast available at 6am the next day.
It was also really convenient to get to the port - being less than 5 mins drive.

I stayed at Faros 1 Hotel and the following is my input:
- Great location in Piraeus with very good accessibility to the port, museums, restaurants, shopping, barber shop, bakeries, and transportation. Not on a main road/not noisy.
- Piraeus is 20 minutes by metro from central Athens
- The metro and port are 5-10 minutes by bus from the hotel and 15 minutes walk (max)
- The hotel is nicely decorated and furnished. Very clean
- Professional and courteous staff members
"Very close to the port. Great for overnight stay"
Stayed here for a quick overnight when coming back from the islands to catch our flight the next day. Easy to find and a short walk from the port - absolutely NOT work a taxi ride - even with two large suitcases. Staff were friendly and directed us to a great local restaurant. Room was quite small, but very clean and comfortable. Certainly met our needs for an overnight; however, would not stay for more than 1 or 2 nights.
Athens’ port since the fifth century BC, Piraeus today is an industrial affair, eight kilometres southwest of the centre. Ferries, catamarans and hydrofoils connect to the islands, and cruise ships doing the Mediterranean circuit stop here. The pretty fishing harbour of Mikrolimano is lined with seafood eateries, and the circular bay of Pasalimani filled with luxury yachts.
