Hotel Ariston
Ranked #12 of 54 Athens B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Only stay here if you are going to take the train to Meteora. Otherwise, there isn't much to do in the immediate surroundings. That said, I decided to give it a very good rating as the Hotel is clean, functional and at a very good price.

We stayed two nights in Ariston, a good place to stay if you are going or coming back from Kalambaka(Visit Mateora). Close to both train and metro station. Staff are friendly, room is clean and shower with hot water

I had stayed in Ariston hotel for 3 nights. The overall experience is great. The location is nice and easy to find very near to Larissa metro station. The check-in process had taken less than a minute. The room was quite small but nice and clean. The breakfast was nice. All the staff were helpful and nice, many thanks to Martina, Elene and the gentleman who helped me go online.
I will go there back.

The hotel is very close to train station, you can see it on the main street when u exit the station. Clean and lovely deco hotel. The staffs are nice and friendly and speaking good english. The breakfast is OK. Good hotel for u to state if u need to take morning train to Kalambaka. There is a Careefour nearby, but it close on Sunday! weekday opening time is 8am-8pm.

Room Tip: the room can see a nice sunrise at the morning at the balcony, don't miss it!

The hotel was extremely close to the train station. The staff were helpful: when my friend needed a phone charger, the receptionist Eleni lent her her own to use overnight. The room was well-designed and furnished, BUT it was not clean. There were bits of lint and hair all over the floor, and a mysterious item under the stand that looked like a cinnamon stick. We have paid less for hotels in the same area that were absolutely spotless. Plus, its proximity to the train station meant that it was extremely noisy all night from the traffic, which made it very difficult to sleep.

We had a LOVELY time in Ariston, mainly due to the following factors:
(1) Its location (2) the staff (Sophia & Martina) (3) the room

Location:
Located a stone's throw from Station Larissis is this beautiful hotel at an affordable price. Easy to find-- When you exit the subway station, just look around you and u will see it. It is a corner unit. Being away from the touristy part of Athens meant that it was quiet and being close to the subway station meant that we could get to any place we wanted to conveniently. Approximately 3-4 stops to Monastiraki and Syntagma. There isn't a lot going on in this part of town, but you can find a Carrefour opposite the hotel (abt 3 minutes walk) and bakeries near by, also a short walk away. The National Archeological Musuem is about a 10 minute walk straight down the road beside Ariston- which makes this hotel a great place to stay for your first day in Athens. We didn't find it to be noisy. Some noise from traffic was there of course, but they were faint as the rooms had very solid proofing. Hotel is abt an hour from the airport by subway, and about 40 mins by cab, a little more during rush hours.

The staff
The staff at the reception were wonderful- in particular Sophia and Martina, who were so incredibly warm, personable and gracious. You were both simply outstanding!!

The room
We were lucky to get a corner room with had 3 (yes THREE) small balconies with views of the city roads and the train station. As mentioned earlier, in spite of being by the road, the noise never bothered us. The room was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable beds (not hard) and pillows, with your basic room facilities like mini fridge, bathtub, safe deposit box, hairdryer, tv. The room and hotel itself is beautiful and is very reasonably priced if you compare it to other hotels in more popular areas monastiraki and the likes.


Tip: On the walk towards the museum, you will find more bakeries and small convenience stores. So you can pick up your breakfast on ur way to the museum. If not, breakfast at the hotel is 5 euro which is not bad since it is a basic breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: Looking at travelers' pics, it looks like shower curtains were installed in their bathroom but n...
