Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).

My husband and I spent four nights at this hotel and the service was exceptional. From the moment we arrived until our departure the staff was very nice and helpful. One morning they prepared an early breakfast for us because we were departing the hotel at 5:30AM for a tour. The room was a little small but large enough for us. Would definitely stay here again.

Areos is a quite typical city hotel. The good thing is that they don`t have any obvious weakness or problems. The staff really good and customer friendly, the interior of the room also very well, in particular, I like the bathroom. WiFi works well. So, I can recommend this place as good value for money. On another hand, there are some subjects to further improvement: 1. The breakfast is really modest. 2. in spite of the booking with free cancellation and payment at the property, the hotel charged my card for the 1 day immediately after booking confirmation. It is only the third time in my life when the hotel acts in such a manner. Then they say that they just validated the card - apparently standard EUR1 transaction doesn`t seem them as a sufficient for such purpose. 3. my request for the silent room was ignored. I was provided by the room on the 2 floor with the windows on the street.

This hotel is fairly reasonably priced, and the breakfast is pretty good. The rooms are small and a bit claustrophobic, but they are not too bad given the price point. That having been said, the wifi in this hotel is extremely slow and frustrating to use, at least in the room - it's a lot better in the lobby. But you can forget about using wifi to stream anything in the rooms, or even to do research on the city at a decent rate. The location is also not ideal - but it's not too bad. Generally, I find it's better to stay more to the south, right across from the Acropolis - but I was only in Athens for two days, so I opted to stay at a cheaper hotel. All in all, I'd give this hotel four stars if the wifi worked better - but the slow wifi merits a lower score.

We have stayed a few days in Athens and enjoyed the food and the sights as well as another comparable priced hotel. Sadly, this hotel leaves a lot wanting. While the staff are friendly and the rooms and bathroom in particular are very nice, the location is not nice at all, you couldn’t have the curtains open without been overlooked, and the breakfast was by far the worst we have had. There was little cutlery and or mugs to use, all the tables were covered in used plates that had not been cleared, and the food was reminiscent of a bad school meal rather than a hotel. I would recommend looking elsewhere.

Stayed for one night on the way back from northern Greece. Having already stayed in one (much better) hotel in Athens we were very disappointed with our time here. Good points: the rooms were clean, comfortable and well equipped, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The bad: noise from the streets outside, and the food and drink. We had a couple of drinks in the bar which were honestly very poor. It felt like the bartender (lovely though he was) had no idea what he was trying to make and you could tell. The breakfast buffet was awful. Very small selection, and nothing nice in it. We’ve stayed in several hotels in Greece on this trip and this is undoubtedly the worst breakfast we’ve had. And, to add insult to injury, the dining area was left heaped with dirty crockery which was not being cleared promptly and they ran out of basic implements such as forks and bowls. The staff at this hotel are great and can’t do enough to help you, however it feels like the place is just very poorly managed. Another note for any tourists, this is well away from all the good sites and fun restaurant areas, so don’t stay here if you want to be near to the action. If you need somewhere just to sleep and don’t intend to eat or drink anything here then it’s absolutely fine. However, we felt very disappointed in choosing this hotel even for just one night.
