Located in a quiet back street of the crowded Psiri area, the Arion Athens Hotel provides exceedingly easy access to tourist attractions like Monastiraki, Plaka, the Acropolis and Syntagma Square. Transportation is just as convenient, with direct access to the Monastiraki metro station, the airport (ATH) and the port of Piraeus. The rooms are bright and stylish, and feature luxurious marble bathrooms, hardwood floors and doubled-glazed, soundproofed windows. Renovated just before the Olympic Games in 2004, it has a rooftop garden with a stunning view of the Acropolis and a mezzanine floor that serves a delicious English breakfast buffet every morning between 7:30am and 10:30am.
