      Historical Traveler Reviews Arion Athens Hotel

      Superb Location


      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.

      Emplacement génial


      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.

      Voyage professionnel


      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.

      Nice Hotel


      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.

      Nice hotel


      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.

      Excellent location


      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.

      THE MENU: The list does include a few vegetarian dishes and every now and then there are a few changes and 'surprises’ depending on the ingathering, the catch of the day (fish) and the season.

      WELCOMING STARTERS: The complimentary chilly raki (tsikoudia) together with some black Cretan olives, bread and Cretan rusk is indeed the best way to start your meal here. The drink ...

Not much to see - but thinking about how the ancient Greeks managed to erect such huge pillars (also - how did they get them up to the top of the Acropolis either?) boggles the mind a bit. No machinery to move things around, no engines. Just common sense and manpower got it done. ...

      June 9-13: A short, early morning hop on the plane from Mykonos brought us back to Athens, where our group went in different directions. A few stayed one more day in Athens, overnighting at an airport hotel; the others waited for their afternoon flights home; and I hung out with them a while until it was time to make my way to my accommodation for the next four nights. Through Airbnb again, I'd arranged an apartment in the Panormou ...
