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

Our group was booked into another Athens hotel (from the same group) and were unceremoniously transferred to the Arion Athens Hotel by taxi upon arrival in Athens. The taxi driver told us that these transfers between the hotels happened several times each week!!! After the shock of the transfer we found the Arion to be a VERY basic hotel -... More

We stayed five nights at the Arion Athens hotel. The hotel is located in the Psiri sector of Athens which is one of the nicer central areas. The hotel has free Wi-Fi in all rooms. The rooms are very comfortable and well maintained. The staff are excellent, so helpful that nothing seems to be too much trouble. The hotel is... More

Hotel is tucked away in an alley so we had difficulty finding it on Day 1. However, once you find it, it is very convenient to get to the shopping area such as Plaka, Monastiraki and to the Acropolis museum. There are plenty of small pubs and restaurant within 2 mins walk away. There is a bathtub in the room... More
