I was originally supposed to stay at Dryades instead of Orion, but when I was offered an Acropolis-view double at Orion instead of my budget double at Dryades, the decision was easy. The rooms have recently been renovated (within the past 2 months or so), and while they are relatively small, they offer enough room for at least a few... More

I stayed there twice in July 2013 with my two kids (8 and 13). The rooms are small but neat, there is a wonderful terrace on the top with the nicest view on the acropolis at night. The neighborhood is great for my standards, active, full of great places to eat, drink and to get lost through the stairs and... More

It is a very plain, old building, but it is in the best area ever! You have to climb a bit of stairs becase it is up to the hill but it is ok. Of course it is a problem if someone has a disability. The owner, mr Kostas I think, is a really nice person! Warm, honest and very... More

This hotel was recommended by a family friend, but I can't see why. It boasts a view of the acropolis and convenient location, but the view does not make up for the distance or Bohemia in which it is located. The walk to the nearest metro station was at least a 15 minute hike through densly crowded and dirty streets,... More

This is a great spot. I'll preface the review by saying that my girlfriend and I weren't expecting much, and are very easy going. Therefore if you are looking for a nice hotel maybe look elsewhere. This is a comfortable and adequate hotel...with a killer view. Pros: Close enough to everything, but somewhat removed and thus quieter. 15 minutes from... More

I stayed there for 3 nights. The night we arrive they didnt have our room ready so they switch us to another one which it was not what we order. We order room with toilette and they gave us room with no toilette. Second day they didnt change the blankets and the room was undone. Third day the same so... More

The hotel is in the Exarchia area, very central, on the map it would be ideal for visiting the city. Unfortunately the heroin junkies and other strange people that populate that area are not indicated on the maps! And, moreover, the hotel is on top of an hill. Therefore, I managed to call a taxi every time I had to... More

Nice but not worth the Price..... not the best location. Exarhia the area east of Omonia (which is considered to be the WORST area in Athens) and boasts loads of Anarchist and heroin junkies. The Hotel is at the base of Strefi Park (a haven for junkies and ratty kids) and the closest metro is 10-15 min walking. There are... More

We have stayed in this hotel maybe 10 times, or more, over the last 20+ years. It's still the same great place. Pretty basic, small, very clean, no luxury, but with a great location (great view, and on pollution free days you can even see the Acropolis), rooftop terrace for your breakfast, and - important in the summer - it's...
