Rated 5 out of 5 by santri1969 Awesome beach property in Athens
We spent 5 days here in Dec and Jan which was good beacuse we got upgraded to an awesome cottage apartment right on the water. It was cold but we were here primarily for Athens's historical places and with the shuttle service felt great along with excellent service from the friendly staff. Highly recommended for a family trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 Rest and Relaxation!
Perfect weather in Greece! We had a wonderful experience at Arion. For me in particular I'm pleased the owners decided to remodel and maintain the bungalows and main building. Mid 70s international architecture. The staff was very friendly and attentive. It felt like "summer camp" for adults. Thanks very much. Jeff G

Rated 5 out of 5 by TGPM A wonderful escape
I've come to expect the best when staying at an SPG Luxury Collection Hotel and the Arion Resort & Spa, Astir Palace did not disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Costas This Hotels has great features
Simply one of the best Hotels I have ever stayed in Greece. The service is was brilliant and the location fantastic. I highly recommend it to anyone that would like to have a weekend break or longer break. Its central and on the beach, its in the Capital and within suburbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shelbo A personal touch
The hotel is luxurious and the surrounding scenery is breathtaking. Hotel staff always try to remember your name and personal preferences, so you feel as if they are not there to accommodate you because you are a client, but because they actually enjoy your company!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flyingf Nice scenary
The Hotel is in a very good location, nice rooms, room service staff is nice, waiters could act in a nicer manner, not very friendly.
House keeping is inconsistant, one day they provide amneties, the other they don't. Housekeeping response is very slow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by greggaboy Great Swimming and Dockside
Whilst this hotel has great swimming and beach facilities, its best restaurant is only open during the daytime. You would expect to get a good Greek Meal at night, not Italian or Japanese.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christos12 Fabulous location
Wonderful location and outstanding waterfront
Unfortunately we found some of the meals not as good as expected. Laterna37 was very disappointing but Marashitu was fantastic. The Thai food festival was also disappointing.

Sub standard service @ it's best. Right down to the maid service & front desks knowledge.
The 1st floor that we were staying on always had a bad lingering odor. Not fresh & clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AL55 Exceeded my expectations
I must admitt that the hotel facilities, especially, the beach were beyond what I had expected from a hotel literally in the center of Athens. I would certainly make it a hub, on my way to Europe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Khophe The worst SPG experience ever
Arion is a fake 5-star hotel and I honestly have no idea how they got the Luxury Collection title.
My room was bad, loud and plainly unpleasant. Staff was uninterested into providing any proper service.
In addition, although I am a Platinum SPG with 100+ stays per year, I got to status recognition, no upgrade, no nothing. On the top of it, my Ambassador SPG services
turned out to be completely useless and non-responsive.
Offically, this was the worst SPG stay ever!
Well, food was ok...and views were nice. Bed was comfy and they have a well equipped (though dirty) gym.
Room was bad -TV is dead, noise from the street, water drainage was completely clogged so I regularly enjoyed a pool in my bathroom. Air con was super loud and annoying.
They never brought enough towels, regardless of my complaints.
Gym is well equipped but poorely maintained. Lot of dust and dirt around, not a pleasure to train there.
I complained to the SPG Ambassador service but they just ignored me...unbelievable and dissapointing.
Food was heavily overpriced. Take note - when you order any main course they will bring you a glass of water, but they will charge for the bottle.
Staff in the lounge is lazy - you can sit for 60' and they will never come and ask you for the order.
Last but not the least - I am Platinum SPG, 100+ nights/year - I received no upgrade or any specific welcome. Also, no complimentary water in the room.
Beach and the hotel surroundings are dirty and not maintained. There is no service on the beach or at the pool. Pool is dirty and water is not heated.
Do not order a cab from the hotel - they will overcharge you like crazy.
At this point....I just want to go home and end this :(
