                Good hotel, friendly staff and convenient location”

                I planned to stay 2 nights at Ares Athens hotel, but ended up staying for 7 nights! I immediately felt home and safe in this hotel, because of the 24 hour reception. Nikos, who was there almost 24/7, is very friendly and helpful. Although, they don't advertise breakfast, there is a small area where you can have tea or coffee and a chocolate croissant every morning as a service. I stayed in a frontside room at the 4th floor. Windows isolate sound pretty good for a good night's rest. Omonia metrostation is around the block and very close by. If you want to go to the touristic city center, I recommend to take a metro from here to Monastiraki (1 stop) and you are right in the middle of shops, restaurants and sight seeing starting points. For solo (female) travellers it is best to take the metro to avoid having to walk the shady streets in the area. During the day it's ok, but in the evening and at night, avoid the smaller streets. Location of the hotel is safe as it is on a main street.

                Hotel is fine, but didn't like the neighbourhood”

                Ares Athens Hotel itself is good value for its price. The receptionists were welcoming, greeting me each time I enter / leave the hotel. The location is within walking distance to Monastiraki / Plaka (where most tourists go). However, when I walk towards my hotel at night, the atmosphere really changed and I did not quite like the area around Omonia Avenue and the streets behind the hotel. Admittedly, the Omonia metro station is just 5-8 mins away, so it is really convenient, and there are cheap eateries / nice restaurants nearby.

                Our stay at Ares Athens was very pleasant. The staff let us check in early which was very kind. The rooms are spacious and beds comfortable. Others have mentioned the surrounding area being a bit sketchy, which is true, so just be vigilant at night, don't walk back alone etc. Overall, we felt it was extremely good value for an affordable price.

                Very friendly family-run hotel with wonderful staff willing to help you with anything you may need. Excellent value for this price range, not fancy but with unexpected amenities like room service every day and coffee, tea and croissants every morning. The location is very central so everything is easy to get to, and the metro is a 2 minute walk away. I stayed for almost 2 weeks and really enjoyed it.

                The private balcony was a pleasant surpise!”

                This was my second stay at the Ares Hotel, so I wasn't expecting too many trimmings when I checked in. But that solo balcony on my 8th floor room really made my day. Staff was kind and helpful as usual, and central location is hard to beat. As a solo traveler I'd stay here. With my family I'd probably go for something more plush :)

                Located near infamous Omonia square. However it isn't that scary as it sounds. Just ignore people talking to U on the street and beware of people walking too close to U. Most of the staffs are good. Wifi very strong. The only con is on weekend mid night, I can hear loud noise from speeding cars/motorcycle. But during weekdays it is much better.

                Easy to locate. 3 mins walk from Omonia metro station. Room is clean with small balcony to go out to smoke. WiFi is good. Simple breakfast of bread and coffee/tea only. One lady receptionist working on May day(strike day) provide valuable info for me to go airport. The only con is the sound insulation of the room. I can hear people talking in the corridor and cars passing by.

                The hotel is small, but it is very clean. It's location is very central and close to everything. The only con is that lift, for it is only functional going up to the rooms but not going down, as you need to go by the stairs which very inconvenient if your room is on higher floor and you have many and heavy luggages. Other than that, everything else is ok.

                Good location, helpful staff”

                The hotel is located very close to the metro station so was easy to get to and from. The man at reception was very helpful with directions.

                Doesn’t look like on the pictures. ”

                It’s doesn’t look at all like on the pictures. The location itself is pretty good because it’s a 2 min walk to the metro station but the area is quite dodgy...many homeless people and drug addicts. I had a deluxe twin room and I Mine opinion it was neither deluxe nor a twin room. It is also really noisy and loud because right opposite there are construction works going on. I wouldn’t mind if it would have been cheaper, but based and on the price and pictures I expected much much more. Wouldn’t go there again.

                OK.”

                The price was cheap so we booked 2 rooms. The staff was okay sometimes I felt they got a bit annoyed with some questions. Location was quite sketchy actually. Next time I'll pay a bit more and stay more central.
