We were at Arion two years ago and this time we decided to stay there again before going to Santorini and again before going back home.
It is a great location although getting there may be kind of funny... the taxi has to get through a narrow street where people are sitting literally in the middle of the street drinking and chatting. But very convenient... close to the bars and taverns of Psiri, to metro station of Monastiraki, to Akropolis, to a street where you can buy spices and regional goods... Tell the taxi to turn right on Athinas, 39, then left and right... you are at the hotel... Rooms and breakfast ok, astounding terrace with a view of the Akropolis. But, thi time a very unpleasant episode spoiled our good opinion of the hotel staff... when my husband was leaving the hotel for a very early flight he forgot his cell phone at his room. He could not call them right away from the taxi because the driver could not understand well English. Next day, we called the front desk, and THEY NEVER FOUND THE CELL PHONE... I was going back to the hotel a couple of days later and I insisted he needed because of the numbers, I even suggested that maybe it fell under the bed and it was not seen immmediately by the cleaning maid... in short, I gave them all chances to save face... and I really regret that the hotel did not seem to make any effort to convince the cleaning maid to give back the cell phone... We are 100% sure that it was left there because it was on the bedside table... Unfortunately, Greece is full of imigrants who do these minor works and do not seem to have any scruples at keeping forgotten items... they believe the guest will never be back... but I was a few days later... they did not seem to worry at all with the fact... and as my husband used the cell phone alarm to wale up, he is sure he left it there... when the taxi arrived, he left the room in a hurry and that was it...
