Stayed for 5 nights in December... hotel very near railway and metro station 10 € to get airport so no need of taxi ... stayed on 5 th floor you can hear traffic noise but get use to it ... hotel staff especially the lady on the desk were very polite and spoke great English which always helps .... breakfast was the same each morning but for the price you can't complain ... hotel is in walking distance to the centre of the city and all the the main sites of Athens... I would definitely use this hotel again ...

I stayed at the hotel with my husband. The check in process was very easy and quick. The location is perfect, 2 minutes walk to the metro station. The room was clean and very comfortable. We left for Santorini and were able to leave our luggage at the hotel since we had another booking right after we came back from Santorini. Matina is amazing. The day we came back, it was early in the morning and she was able to find a room for us before the normal check in time, in order for us to get some rest. We also had a quick dinner at the lobby and the food was really good.

The hotel was easy to access from the airport via the metro. We had a corner room on the fifth floor - it was fairly spacious and clean ( curtains had a few cigarette burns). Bathroom was compact. Buffet breakfast was good. The staff (names escape me...young lady with short dark wavy hair and young, short guy...) were terrific and very helpful. Their command of the English language was great and nothing was too much of a problem.

Hotel is located near Larissa station which has both subway and regional trains. Room on the first floor was rather noisy as it is directly overlooking the busy street. Stayed two nights and bed wasn't done on either one, however the general conditions are not bad considering the price.

If you're looking for a nice, clean hotel with good metro access, this hotel is great. The room was nice and had all I needed. The shower pressure is low and the base of the shower is uneven (it is a bath that seems to have been designed for sitting, so is not completely flat). That being said, it is only a minutes walk to Larissa station (same line as Acropolis stop). I'm a little unsure about the area surrounding the hotel, doesn't seem the safest and there aren't really any restaurants in the area. I just caught the metro back into the centre as there's heaps of food options there. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The breakfast is also fine.

I stayed at the Hotel Ariston for two nights in October. It is conveniently located less than a block from Larissa train station and the metro subway stop. There isn't much in the way of restaurants in the area. There is a decent coffee/pastry shop called Everest next to the train station and a supermarket across from the Hotel Oscar. The neighborhood safe, but there are homeless people. The hotel is small, but recently renovated. My room was small, but clean. Beds are hard. But I've found this to be true across Europe. One drawback for Americans would be the way you turn on the lights. Your hotel key is a card that you place in a card holder. That controls the lights. If the card isn't in its holder, the lights or TV wont go on. So, everything is turned off when you leave the room with the key card. I had this type of key card for two hotels in Athens. There wasn't a big selection for breakfast, but it was tasty. There was good yogurt, honey, fresh fruit, feta cheese, ham/cheese slices, fresh bread, fresh fruit, mini cheese pastries (which as popular in Greece), juice and as much Greek coffee as you could drink. This was a very nice hotel, reasonably priced. It's easy to hop on the subway and get to the Athens nightlife as well as all the tourist attractions. I stayed here because I needed to catch the early train to Kalambaka. One last drawback, it's a hotel. It means that you will hear doors slam at all hours. You will hear talking and you will hear street noise. Athens is noisy. These are not quiet rooms. This is something you learn to deal with if you travel in Europe.

Great location! Its just a minute away from the train station and taxi queue. Lots of grocery & shops nearby as well as local restaurants and bakery. The room is tidy and well maintained. Staff are friendly and very helpful!

If you are looking for the glitz and glamour of 4 and 5 star hotel, don't stay here. This is a great little 3 star, just a few minutes from Larissa, the main train station. I felt welcome as soon as I came through the front door, indeed there were helping hands available to bring my heavy suitcase up the small ramp at the hotel entrance. It has a small bar at good prices, has fresh baguettes and other items to snack if wanted, and the continental breakfast at Euro5 was sufficient, tasty and healthy, with juice, cereals, bakery and coffee. I would patronise this hotel again in a flash! As an afterthought, the manager speaks excellent English.

Good location and a minute away from Larissa metro Station. We got a 50% discount on the last minute so it was worth a deal else this place is a little overpriced as the room size is considerable small.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night with my friend. Great location. Just a few minutes to metaxourgeio metro station. The rooms are economic, but they are very clean in compare to other hotels of the same rage, nice decorated with new furniture. Polite staff. We did enjoy our stay.
