Great flight from Paris, even the airport workers strike couldn't deter us.
I've heard of cattle class, but doggy class? We noticed this little girl "Bella" strutting around the Munich airport behind her owner and sure enough they were seated across the aisle from us.
The taxi driver on the way from the airport to our hotel warned us that …
... we could expect this because we paid EUR 26 for the room with private bathroom and A/C in a decent location in Athens). This was an uncomfortable moment because it would mean that we would have to move the next day even though we had made a reservation and paid the respective booking fees. We went to our bed hoping to be able to talk to the owner on the next day and just incase wrote a draft of complaint to Hostelbookers.com (where we booked our hotel) but didn't send it until we ...

For the start of my spring break, which was actually Semana Santa, or Holy Week, my friend from Ohio, Courtney, and I set off on nine days of crazy traveling. Literally used planes, trains, automobiles, and boats to get to our desired destinations. I don't think I have ever been so exhausted in my entire life.
First stop, Athens, Greece. GORGEOUS country, bustling city, but it's a little bit sketchy in the evenings. I wouldn't say I felt ...

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 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.

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.
