“Average hotel close to the main Athens Rail station”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Chosen for its proximity to the main Athens rail station, and indeed its only a 2 minute walk.

Receptionist was helpful, she knew my requests and gave me choice of two to look at. The road at front of hotel is very busy, and I am glad they listened to my request at back of hotel.

Room was small but comfortable. Wifi worked well, as did the air con.

Only draw back was noise insulation, you can hear everybody coming and going.

Breakfast was typically Greek, nice to have warm croissants, but the coffee is poor.

I had some internet train tickets to print off, no PC or printer, but sent reception an email and they printed off for 30 Euro cents a page.

Friendly and helpful staff. Just a few metres away from the metro station, making it very easy to commute. Room was quite tiny and having our 4 month baby with, made it a bit tight. Rained every day we were there and a warm breakfast would have been lovely. Only cold breakfast offered which was also very limited. Good stay nonetheless.

Stayed one night in Athens. A little far from everything, but very close to a metro station that brought you where you needed to go. Friendly front desk and room was comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was good, decent variety, and included. Great value for the price.

It is a relatively good hotel...at a quite comfortable region in Athens (metro station 100metres away)..and close to the city center. (neighbour not that good though). Clean room and bathroom...airconditioned big enough room ...including a refrigator (empty though) ...Disadvantage : basic breakfast with only cold food. Main advantages : proximity to metro station and center and secodly the price (we payed 42 euros for a twin room)

The hotel is in a very convenient location. Because it is in a residential neigbhorhood, it is literally steps from the Larissa Metro Station, the Athens railway terminal, 1 block from a Carrefour supermarket, several convenience stores and a lot of eating places that are open late. In addition, breakfast is included in the room price and the 20 minute taxi ride from this hotel up to Piraeus port is only 8-10 euros. I will definitely recommend this hotel.

I really don't understand negative reviews when you pay this price for the room. If you want nice view on Acropola, posh neighbourhood and other luxury things, pay yourself five star and you will got it. Ariston is great value for money just across Lariss metro station witch take you all around Athens. Staff is extremly helpfull, specially girl named Matina. Rooms are big enough, super clean, free wifi internet, balcony big enough for smoking cigarets...

Negative things would be:
I miss bath shadow in the toilet. This is not touristic area so you will not find good restaurant for dinner... Breakfast can be richer... maybe more sorts of juices not just one, better quality of fruits etc. But there is huge supermarket 2 minutes away where you can buy yourself snacks or drinks ;) so maybe think about to pay 7e for person for breakfast.
