“Go, Areos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Really convenient location for local mini-markets and eateries once you take a walk around the block. Also about just a 20-minute walk towards the Windbaths, Plaka and mini sightseeing tram which goes up to the Acropolis, Parthenon and New Acropolis Museum.

The hotel is pleasantly modern and decorated. The Reception is always helpful and communication in English is not a problem, either verbal or written. I believe that the hotel did accommodate my requirement for a quiet room by providing one on a higher level.

For someone who prefers to start early, the buffet breakfast is convenient. The variety is good and includes hot breakfast choices. A major drawback for me is the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the hotel room itself.

Room Tip: Rooms can vary very much in size even on the same floor of just three. The first I was in was a squ...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in October based on the reviews on here.

When we arrived we were given a lovely room but it did not have a stand alone shower so I phoned reception to ask if they had another room available. The guy on reception was very helpful and changed our room immediately.

Breakfast was good and included cereals, toast, cake, pastries and a few warm options.

The location was not close to the centre but we are keen walkers so didn't mind the 25-30 min walk into the centre. There is also a metro stop 5min from the hotel if you need it. Some reviewers have commented on the area surrounding the hotel. We didn't experience any issues when we were here apart from a few unsavoury looking characters in the area on one night but they were harmless.

Areos thoroughly deserves its high rating on trip advisor and I would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in athens!

Best hotel we stayed in throughout Europe.

Positives: spacious room, awesome view off the patio, large bathroom, fridge, stove top, closet, free slippers, friendly staff, nice breakfast
Negatives: it doesn't have stand up shower, its just a little too far from the action

Would be my definition of a 4.5 hotel, so trip advisor is right on. The staff was extremely helpful with suggestions and even the culture, current events, etc. It meant a lot.

If it was about 1/2 mile closer to downtown it would be the perfect hotel (and prob triple the cost).

When exploring Athens, hotel Areos is one of the best priced and most comfortable stays. Its friendly staff gave us excellent tips on where to sightsee and eat. Close to the metro, it is a good base to go around. Other than other reviewers, we do not have any complaints on the neighborhood. We never felt unsafe, not even when walking at night. Clean rooms, great service. Breakfast is decent but can use a traditional Greek touch. All in all a nice place to stay.

We have just spent a week in this hotel. The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was really ok.But the best was the stuff, they gave us hints where to go out and helped us finding special locations.
Also the girl at the bar, very nice and serving good drinks.
Price was absolutely ok. Location could be better.But still ok.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, really well priced, really nice rooms with comfortable bed! The first receptionist that saw us (shame I didn't get his name) was really helpful and went out of his way to help us, the previous place we stayed at kept my boyfriend's passport and we hadn't realised we didnt have it. The receptionist really went the extra mile to get it back to us as we had a really early flight the next day. Great boutique hotel with excellent customer service!
