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.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a view of the Parthenon--it's beautiful during the day and at night.

I booked and paid for the Hotel Achilleas (another hotel in the four hotel Group) away back in Jan 2014 and on 10th June the day I was leaving Kefalonia I received e-mails from two friends who had flown from England on 9th June and on arrival at the Hotel Achilleas at 10pm they had no rooms due to the hotel being over-booked and they were transferred to Arion Athens Hotel. I received no intimations or apology from Hotel Achilleas for the actions taken.

Arriving at Arion Athens Hotel I was not a "happy bunny" as the action taken by the Group is just not right, no matter what excuses or apologies that are made. However we did sort out recompense.

I enjoyed my stay in the hotel. My room was comfortable, very clean and had all the facilities I needed, including a fridge. Wi-Fi was free with a good signal. Views across the City from the 7th floor balcony (see photo) were very special. I enjoyed the buffet breakfast. The staff were excellent, obliging, knowledgeable and helpful. Here I single out Stavros Nikitopoulos on reception - ultra cool and relaxed at all times with nothing being a problem.

A good location in Psiri and a five minute walk from Monastiraki Metro station (once you find your bearings!!). Thus all central attractions are near and you have the Metro to take you to the airport (Euros 8) and to the coast (Daily pass - Euros 4). Many restaurants and bars are all around.

A bustling and diverse City with a delightful clash of present with many historic sites that span four millennia. Do not miss out on this City.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the 7th floor as the door to the balcony makes an "un-necessary" closing noise and guests' late drinking can be noisy.

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 back to him. Nikolaus, Stavros, and Poli, provided exemplary service, support, and help during our stay, and in seeking medical help for my husband. They were the best team ever, and I will never forget what they did for us. What a wonderful asset for the Arion to have these young men on their staff. Thank you from the Hadas.

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 - no restaurant, bar, swimming pool, or any type of amenities that you expect from hotels. The rooms were extremely basic but comfortable (once we were able to get an adult sized bed for the third adult member of our trio), although our room had none of the views promised in the advertising. The breakfast (the only thing offered other than the beds) was good. The position of the hotel is convenient and the staff were helpful.

Room Tip: Beware of booking this hotel - you may not be sleeping in the hotel that you booked.

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 within a short walking distance of the Metro which will take you directly to/from the airport and the coast. The most popular squares of Monasteraki (closest - five minutes walk) and Syntagma (10 minute walk) are nearby and it's possible to walk to the Acropolis and all other central tourist attractions.

Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: Top floor seven has four bedrooms and the roof top terrace with fantastic views across Athens to the Acropolis, but the door to this does bang frequently especially with young parties - the terrace is generally locked just after midnight, but if you go to bed early, then avoid floor seven.
