We stayed for 2 Nights at both hotels but i preferred the Arion Hotel, located in a quiet alley behind Attalos Hotel (main street). Arion is harder to find the first time round but once you find your bearings, you' d find Arion very central & the alleys fun to pave through. A lot of colorful graffiti adorn the walls... More

The Arion Athens Hotel is a very good value for your money. When you get there, don't be scared off by the location. IT IS NOT IN A BAD NEIGHBORHOOD! There is a lot of graffiti in the area, but that's very common in Europe. In the U.S. that's a sign of somewhere being unsafe, but that's not the case... More

It is located near Psiri, and is functional to go around Athens from Monastiraki to the Acropolis by foot. The price/benefit is quite good. The rooms are small, clean and basic, seems that was renovated recently. The view from the rooftop is spectacular and the hotel allows bringing your drinks and food to enjoy it. If you like the Ibis... More

I only stayed for a very short while, on a layover in Athens, but I liked it so much that I really wished I had stayed longer. My flight to Athens was unfortunately delayed so I got even less time at the hotel than planned, but reception is open throughout the night and checking in and out was no problem... More

This is a simple hotel with spacious, clean rooms. Checking in and out was efficient and wi-fi is available throughout. Breakfast was self-service with sufficient variety. I rarely stay in the centre of Athens, but I would happily stay here again.

I stayed in this place last year, I had a 1 night stay in July 2013. The rooms are spacious overlooking town. Mine was on the 4th floor. Rooms are soundproof, bathroom is very beautiful, modern, has glass doors. Location is not perfect, but it's easy to find if you have a map. Not more than 5 minutes to metro.... More

Pros: clean room, friendly staff, great view of the Parthenon, good value for money, good location (in a way)--close to narrow streets with restaurants and nightlife Cons: terrible/uncomfortable beds, bad, leaky shower with useless curtain, bad location (in a way)--nearly impossible to find and kind of dicey at night.

During our three night stay at the Arion, we experienced outstanding service from four young men: Alfred Serpetopoulos, Nikolaus Karagiannides, Stavros Niuitopoulos, and Poli Fratzeskakis. Alfred directed our travel group to a fabulous restaurant. He gave us a list of his favorite dishes that we might like to order. We had such fun at the restaurant and took our leftovers... More
