Nice Hotel Located Near the Train Startion

Review of Ariston Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Oct 14, 2017
I stayed at the Hotel Ariston for two nights in October. It is conveniently located less than a block from Larissa train station and the metro subway stop. There isn't much in the way of restaurants in the area. There is a decent coffee/pastry shop called Everest next to the train station and a supermarket across from the Hotel Oscar. The neighborhood safe, but there are homeless people.

The hotel is small, but recently renovated. My room was small, but clean. Beds are hard. But I've found this to be true across Europe. One drawback for Americans would be the way you turn on the lights. Your hotel key is a card that you place in a card holder. That controls the lights. If the card isn't in its holder, the lights or TV wont go on. So, everything is turned off when you leave the room with the key card. I had this type of key card for two hotels in Athens.

There wasn't a big selection for breakfast, but it was tasty. There was good yogurt, honey, fresh fruit, feta cheese, ham/cheese slices, fresh bread, fresh fruit, mini cheese pastries (which as popular in Greece), juice and as much Greek coffee as you could drink.

This was a very nice hotel, reasonably priced. It's easy to hop on the subway and get to the Athens nightlife as well as all the tourist attractions. I stayed here because I needed to catch the early train to Kalambaka.

One last drawback, it's a hotel. It means that you will hear doors slam at all hours. You will hear talking and you will hear street noise. Athens is noisy. These are not quiet rooms. This is something you learn to deal with if you travel in Europe.
Date of stay: October 2017
Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony have more street noise, but the breeze is nice during a hot evening.

If you are looking for the glitz and glamour of 4 and 5 star hotel, don't stay here. This is a great little 3 star, just a few minutes from Larissa, the main train station. I felt welcome as soon as I came through the front door, indeed there were helping hands available to bring my heavy suitcase up the small ramp at the hotel entrance. It has a small bar at good prices, has fresh baguettes and other items to snack if wanted, and the continental breakfast at Euro5 was sufficient, tasty and healthy, with juice, cereals, bakery and coffee. I would patronise this hotel again in a flash! As an afterthought, the manager speaks excellent English.

Good location and a minute away from Larissa metro Station. We got a 50% discount on the last minute so it was worth a deal else this place is a little overpriced as the room size is considerable small.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night with my friend. Great location. Just a few minutes to metaxourgeio metro station. The rooms are economic, but they are very clean in compare to other hotels of the same rage, nice decorated with new furniture. Polite staff. We did enjoy our stay.

Nice Hotel for one quick night in athens but average on the size of the room, we should have chosen one higher room to be able to have a bigger one. The staff is really nice and the hotel it's easy to find :)

Room tip: top floors :)
