Reviewed 1 October 2013

Arion Hotel is perfectly located in the center of Athens, Monastiraki is within walking distance.
The hotel is in a good state, the staff is friendly, the rooms clean, breakfast is contintental and not bad either. It is quiet and safe.
Maybe one negative point is the poor view in the backyard, there you can see all those shabby bangla-houses, but since it is a city hotel, you never stay in your hotel room too long.
Another negative point is, that curtains had holes which need to be replaced soon and WI FI is poor in the rooms, but it is working in the lobby.
Other than that, I would go back to Arion Hotel again

Great location, clean, modern and quiet.
The hospitality is great. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was good.
The hotel is close to a neighbourhood where the locals go to socialize at night. It's interesting to see this side of Athens aside from the herds of tourists.
No complaints!
Thank you for making it a wonderful stay in Athens.

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.
