“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

A lovely hotel in a good spot. Don't be put off by the neighborhood (we arrived late after dark and the graffitti was a bit of a shock). The area is actually quite interesting with good night spots, and great access to transit. The thing that really sets it apart is the staff, though. Not only were they friendly, very informative and helpful but when my friend lost her camera they found it and offered to send it on home! Restores your faith in humanity!
Very recommended.

I recently spent two nights in two different rooms at the Areos Hotel in Athens, Greece. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Athens! You will find courteous, friendly, informative folks working at the desk who advised us on several excellent restaurants and were helpful with directions. The rooms are extremely comfortable with great air conditioning, comfy beds and very nice, modern bathrooms in spotless condition! Breakfast is included with the price of the room and you will not be disappointed by the choices and the quality of everything from the coffee to the real Greek yogurt, as well as the many choices in between (fresh melon, juice, bacon, eggs, toast, tomatoes, olives, etc.).
We traveled with 6 people and used 10 different rooms--all slightly different and all welcoming to weary travelers. When we needed to leave early to catch a ferry to Syros, the hotel clerk arranged for a van large enough to carry all of us and our luggage. Even though we had to leave before breakfast was available, the hotel staff had coffee and a light breakfast waiting for us before we left. They also helped us a second time by ordering a van large enough for all of us when we needed to catch a plane at the airport.
A member of our party left a camera charging in her room and the hotel personnel were kind enough to mail it to the UK so those valuable vacation photos were not lost! This is high quality service from a very caring staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Athens and hope to stay there again myself. Hotel Aeros, you were a fantastic place to stay!!!!!

Room Tip: If you want a refrigerator--ask. Not all rooms had one. Like a tub in addition to a shower? That...

We stayed at Areos for 2 nights. The hotel itself was great - very modern, large bathroom with waterfall shower, and good breakfast. I especially liked the fruit salad they put out with the Greek yogurt in the mornings. The hotel is also only a 5 min walk from the Victoria metro station as many reviewers have mentioned, making it easy to get to and from the main areas of Athens (Plaka, Acropolis etc.). My only reservation about the hotel is its immediate location. We arrived in the early evening and asked for a recommendation from the hotel for a place nearby to eat dinner. They recommended an area nearby with several restaurants. The food was great but the area where the hotel is felt a little bit sketchy. It's fine...but not an area I would spend much time in. After that first night, we pretty much took the metro into other areas of Athens and only came directly back to the hotel to sleep. If the hotel were in a different location, it would definitely be a 5 out of 5, but the iffy location outside of central Athens is no doubt what allows Areos to charge such reasonable rates, so overall, I would still recommend it, just be aware when walking around at night in the area.

I use trip advisor for EVERYTHING. I won't book anywhere without it, so I take these reviews very seriously when I read them. I read nothing but positive reviews about this hotel and I don't have anything but wonderful things to say. The hotel is easily accessible from Victoria station in Athens, which is also easy to get to from the airport by taking the blue line to Monistraki and changing to the green line two stops to Victoria. It was about a 5 minute walk. My husband and I walked everywhere- we didn't find a need for subway or cabs but all that is accessible if you choose. The hotel is very modern. The rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable (we've had some nightmares with european beds before). I loved that we left at 11am and came back at 3 and our room had already been cleaned- other hotels we went days without service! The front desk is so friendly. They gave us wonderful suggestions on places to eat- helped us arrange airport transportation via bus service because we have a very early departure before the metro even runs and I just can't say enough good things. A simple but sufficient breakfast is included, although I wish they offered more fruit and free wifi. Thank you for a lovely stay! I highly recommend the hotel.

I highly recommend Areos Hotel as the perfect place to stay in for people who are planning to visit the lovely city of Athens :)

A cosy hotel having a perfect location; provides exceptional service at a reasonable price. Less than 10 mins. walking to the "Victoria Station" which is just one stop to "Monasteraki" (Athens' city center). The bedroom(s) and bathroom(s) are spacious, the bed is comfortable, the interior design of the hotel is beautiful, housekeeping service is excellent.

Special mention to the Front Desk Personnel named Dmitra who goes out of her way to assist her customers not only with concierge-related services, but also anything that concerns her customers' stay in the hotel. She always wear a beautiful smile and always ready to accommodate any request(s) from her customers. She is very approachable. Her willingness to help would keep customers coming back in this hotel.

Overall my experience in this was absolutely fantastic. Everyone is just great. Keep up the good job!

The hotel is around 7mins walking with luggage from the Victoria station. It's not centrally located but you will get a good price as per the location.
The check-in was very quick and the lady helped us to have a bigger room for my brother in law to be able to fit the baby cot,very of them!
The room is super clean and very nice furniture, shower rain in the big bathroom and body lotion from Dove! Very surprise for that kind of hotel.
We had breakfast which was quite simple but good enough for the day.
Overall for the price and the quality of the room, I would say it is an excellent hotel and perfect to spend a few days in athens.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Although this hotel is not as centrally located as some other hotels, it is quite easy to find your way by walking or taking the metro. The hotel and its rooms are very clean and modern. This hotel is a very good pick for first timers in Athens! We had a blast!
