26 Mar Fantastic and friendly!
I was traveling alone in Athens for the weekend. I arrived at Hotel Ariston which is right off the main road from the Larissa metro stop. So convenient and out of the super touristy neighborhoods. Yes it is on a main road corner but if your window is closed, it’s a dull roar of basic road traffic, nothing major. I was able to check in early which worked out perfectly. The hotel staff was friendly and always around to ask questions. The housekeeper kept the room fully stocked with 4 towels and plenty of soap and shampoo for a single which was great. I enjoyed my stay immensely and will be back! However I did skip the optional breakfast and found spanakopita and iced cappuccino at local cafes for less than 5 euros (but I’m not big on breakfast). The best part about my stay was that on my last day I overslept. I had plenty of time before my flight but the hotel never tried to wake me or kick me out. When I did go downstairs to check out they were very nice and let me know they purposely let me take my time (until 2 pm). Amazing, fantastic, awesome!! Yes it is a budget hotel so don’t expect robes in your room but they have everything you’d need for a great stay! Thank you Hotel Ariston!!
