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.

So today we had a slight sleep in and an easy wake up. Today was our last chance to see Athens so we bought a ticket that got us into all the ancient sites that needed to been seen. First we had a very average breakfast at the hotel. Nothing to write home about, that's for sure. We then left to find a place to buy a ticket. We found a ticket outlet and started at The Roman Agora which was nice but not really a lot left of it to be fair. The second site we saw was the Ancient Agora. This ...
... refurbished as well as is it is only partially built as well. For reference the Acropolis took 647 years to build and still wasn't/ isn't finished - that's a WOW MOM moment if I have one for the day. Zeus must have been one bad man as his temple was set to be the biggest of it's kind, such monster pillars of marble laid sprawled out from Earthquakes of times past. Following Zeus and His pillars (because let's face it, temple isn't a correct ...
... sup> floor just below the roof garden. It was quite spacious with an extra single bed that could easily fit a family with one or two kids. The double glazed door kept noise out and opened to a spacious balcony that offered a breathtaking view of the Acropolis.
The wardrobe was a bit tiny with little space to hang and store clothes, but at least a safe was available. The interior was cozy enough with posters decorating the walls, a flat TV, a ...
... like I knew that they were calling me a pig and happily went on with my day, wee wee wee, eating that delicious souvlaki all the way to the hostel. Next: check on island hopping. I inquired with the guy at the front desk how I might go about doing some island hopping and he recommended this travel agent down the street that would set me all up. I've always been a bit hesitant to go to travel agents for some reason, not sure why, but this guy .. I love him. He ...
... a few hours with the main emphasis being Acropolis. Everyone was lining up for their tours and we walked down the road about 10 min and came to a taxi rank. Talked to a driver who said he'd take us to Acropolis for Eur25 (the normal taxi fare one way) or he would take us all to about 5 or 6 sights and return us to the boat in 3 hours for Eur75 total. Now to put this into comparison, the cruise tours were Eur125 each and Eur75 for ...
