    Historical Traveler Reviews Arion Athens Hotel

    Superb Location

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... both the presentation and Father John’s lecture taking pictures of us the entire time (it was weird, but I guess I should be used to it by now…). After Father John finished his lecture we had some free time to walk around Athens before dinner. In order to orient ourselves with the city we decided to find the general way back to the hotel so we wouldn’t get lost later. On the way we picked up some dog friends who followed us ...

    Some info about the Olympics and the remaining impact it has had on the people of Athens. There is a lot of anger from the people who still believe they are "paying off the Olympic debt"!

Flight to Athens was very quick and comfortable, enjoyed our snack on Aegean Airlines - penne in cheese sauce, a roll and two biscuits and a drink, but flight was quick and pasta was really hot. Arrived in Athens -approx 1 .45 ...

The Greek SWAT team was out in front, and they quickly stopped us as we tried to enter. We strolled through a few shops, and got a recommendation for a nice restaurant with great Parthenon views. The food was wonderful – I ordered an appetizer sampler with several greek dishes, and ...

    ... t live up to that. It is inarguably very grand and, as the birthplace of Winston Churchill, had interesting exhibits as well as incredibly opulent rooms and stunning period portraits every which way you turned.....it's truly enormous and impressive but yeah perhaps just a bit too grand for this little Aussie tourist! The best part of the experience was actually that they have a hedge maze in the grounds and as Gwendols and I had been SO disappointed to miss ...
