“We were very happy here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We were very happy with this hotel. Great location to use subway from airport and see all the sights. Very walkable. Nice beds and bathroom. Spacious room for a big city. Nice view of the acropolis from rooftop deck! Very helpful and friendly staff.

Everything the other reviewers said already :) It's a pretty quiet hotel in the midst of a pretty engaging neighborhood. I really liked that. Nothing to comment on the rooms and bathrooms, everything was very clean and in good condition, especially the bathrooms.

Nice Hotel in a great location to tour Athens. Just few blocks from the Monastiraki Metro stop. An 8 Euro Metro ticket from the airport gets you there! At first pass the area seems a little sketchy.. with the graffiti and closed business (we arrived on a Sunday Afternoon, when many of the businesses were closed). But once we found the front door we were pleasantly surprised.. a quant little gem in a great location.
The Ancient sights are close enough to walk to, or you can use the Metro, which is pretty easy to navigate. We walked mostly. The nearby Psyrri area has lots of cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.. giving us directions and a walking map.
Nice breakfast in bright spacious dining room. The staff spoke excellent English.

We had a wunderful stay in Arion Hotel Athens. It is very close to Monastiraki station, where the metro brings you right to the port and airport. The nice area of Plaka and most of the sights are very close to the hotel. Right next to Arion hotel are some nice bars and restaurants. The hotel's surroundings didn't seem dangerous at night.The staff was friendly and the room's atmosphere very comfortable. The hotel's roof terrace has an amazing view on the Acropolis, which is beautiful especially at night. Very recommendable!

Nice hotel with a perfect location to visit Atheens.
Very close to the famous Monastiraki Square where you can find lots of shops, restaurants and the flea market and last but not the least: a Metro Station that takes you straight away to the airport.
The hotel has got a roof terrace with wonderful view to the Acropolis.
Also nice breakfast.

We were happy with the hotel itself, though the location was a little sketchy at night. The area isn't dangerous, just full of graffiti and trash. However, only a block down the street started an area with many small, nice, friendly, and delicious restaurants that were reasonably priced. And it is very close to the Monisteraki metro station and many of the tourist sites. The hotel reception staff members were all very helpful, polite, and spoke excellent English. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the air conditioning worked very well despite the July Athens heat! Breakfast was good - hot and cold foods with a lot of variety - and the eating area was attractive. The wireless in our room worked very well almost all the time, but once I had to go down to the public areas for a little while. The very best feature of this hotel is the small rooftop terrace with an amazing view of the Acropolis. We brought some beverages up and sat at a table on the terrace after sunset -- it was wonderful!

Room Tip: We read on TripAdvisor to request a room with a view of the Acropolis, but there wasn't one avai...

This is a wonderful, centrally located hotel in Athens. The neighborhood is bustling with activity... lots of shops, restaurants, and bars. It is a really quick walk to pretty much all the major attractions in Athens (or at least everything we planned to see). The staff was helpful in providing directions and any information we needed. The rooms were comfortable, and we even had a great view out our window. A great value.
Not much else to say other than this place is great!
