26 Mar Very helpful front desk, good location, good value
We stayed at the Hotel Ariston right after disembarking from a week long cruise and arrived fairly early in the morning. At first they had us put our luggage in a back room, but within a few minutes, they had a room ready and we were able to check in. It is located a little north of the city center and the taxi driver charged us about 5 Euros more because of it. But Hotel Ariston is very conveniently located right near the St. Larrisa Metro stop on the red line and we could have easily taken the metro from the cruise port and saved the taxi fare. It was only a few Metro stops to Syntagma Square and a couple more to the Acropolis stop. The front desk was VERY helpful with everything such as checking us in as soon as possible, arranging for a taxi to the airport early the next morning, helping us with sightseeing questions, and answering all of our other questions. The hotel was nicely furnished and clean. We would have preferred a queen bed, but the double was firm and comfortable and that’s what they had. The wifi worked great. It was a great value for the price and I would highly recommend it.
