Historical Traveler Reviews Arion Athens Hotel
Clean and modern hotel. We had one of the rooms with a balcony and could look straight out at the Acropolis. Breakfast was OK but was the same every day. Some variation would have made a big difference. The location is excellent for all the main sites and for travelling by metro from the airport. We had some overnight noise from loud music from adjacent properties. It did not trouble us, but we wonder how it would be in the summer. Overall we would stay there again and it was good value.
Hôtel propre et moderne. Nous avions une des chambres avec balcon où l'on pouvait voir l'Acropole. Le petit déjeuner était correct mais tous les jours c'était le même. Un peu de changement ne ferait pas de mal. L'emplacement est top pour accéder aux différents sites et pour venir en métro de l'aéroport. La nuit, on entendait fort la musique des bâtiments voisins. Cela ne nous a pas dérangé mais nous nous sommes demandés ce que cela pouvait être en été. Globalement, nous y reviendrions, il s'agit d'un bon rapport qualité/prix.
Very VERY Nice
In an area that is not equal to its standard! BUt VERY central to many spots and train station. Very flexiable and helpful management and front staff. Lovely room and bathrooms. If you are lucky to get a view of the Ruins you are in for a treat. Beakfast was the best to all the other 10 hotels we stayed while doing our Europe trip. We would stay there if we return.
très bon hôtel , emplacement idéal pour un séjour découverte au centre de la vieille ville, accueil chaleureux, service et prestation petit déjeuner très satisfaisante . adresse à recommander.
A clean, modern conveniently located hotel
A very modern, clean hotel situated in the middle of Athens - walking distance to the Acropolis and all other major historical sites. quiet while we were there with friendly staff. Breakfast is self service and more continental with croissant, bread, cakes, ham & cheese, hard boiled eggs, cereals, greek yoghurt, jams etc.
It's only a few minutes from Monstraki train station which has direct lines to both the airport (10 euro for two - 40 minutes journey) or the port of Piraeus (2.7 euro for two - 15 minutes or so) from where we easily caught a ferry to Aegina 1 hour away 12 euros return each.
The area is 'up & coming' but safe and very near to bustling markets, excellent bars and restaurants and all the tourist attractions - all within easy walking distance.
All in all an excellent place to stay - and a quiet time of year to visit.

The hotel is nice and is located near the shopping in downtown Athens. Great food near by for a cheap price. The hotel itself looks nice and if you get a room facing the acropolis (5th or 6th floor) you will not be dissappointed.
One word of caution is that I booked through Expedia and when I arrived they DID NOT have my reservation. I was extremely dissappointed at this but the hotel did still find us a room. Just be cautious of this as the rate I got charged after was higher than expedia's rate.
Good luck and enjoy your stay.
A very nice hotel in a very convenient location. It was cozy, clean, and had a nice view of the Acropolis with a good price.
Nice hotel, but very noisy
The hotel was really easy to find and only about 5 mins walk from Monastiraki metro station. The Psiri area is full of restaurants and tavernas, which made for a really noisy night (we stayed over a Saturday night). The noise - singing and music - kept going until the early hours of Sunday morning, which might not be a problem for some but when you have a boat to catch the next morning, it's not great. The staff were friendly though and the breakfast was satisfactory.
This hotel in a lovely location, high up on a hillside, overlooking the bay (strenuous downhill walk to get into town, but I think they ran a bus also) Most rooms had a balcony or terrace overlooking the sea. The staff were pleasant and the rooms, though not large or luxurious, were adequate and clean. The pool is small but a nice area to relax in. It was a peaceful, quiet sort of place (though we did go off-season in May, so I don't kow what it's like when there are more kids). Food was good. Restaurant has a gorgeous terrace for sitting out at night.
Plenty of bars down in the town, about 15 minutes stroll away.

... lively this area would have been in days gone by! 24 October Athens...rainy one day, really rainy the next (with thunder, lightning and wind!) A silly idea as it turned out, to venture out again on the hop-on-hop-off bus but I hadn't explored the Acropolis area because it hadn't been conducive to do so yesterday and had only completed one of the routes, so off I went to see the port...big mistake, huge! Didn't see much of anything, so headed back ...
... towns in the winter months. The shops and majority of restaurants close down and the workers go back to the mainland. One has to wonder if it would be best to visit these islands in the winter to avoid the crowds and get a true perspective and appreciation of this beautiful part of the world.
The ship docked back in Athens sometime during the night and we were all the dock by 7am all ready for our tour of this very ugly city. First stop over was the acropolis ...
... stop was to go to Ancient Agora. They were only open for a few hours a day so we had to plan our day around it. We had seen it the day before and knew that we needed to go in. The area stuck out in the city with tons of vegetation. We walked through a portion of it and looked at the ruins that lay between the tall trees and oleanders. Then we made our way to the museum that was part of the site. The museum was pretty cool, lots of statues and other ...
... the epitome of the extremes. I hadn't realised but Larn actively dislikes mazes and as for Gwendols, her sense of direction is as freaky as her sleeping ability so we had to maintain a sprint to keep up with her. I think the sign said it would take around 20mins and she had us in, around and out in about 5.......Which was a good thing at that stage due to our time frame restraints and I'm sure Liane appreciated it as I don't think wandering around lost ...
