          Best for value, very recommended ”

          I booked as a solo traveler, but staff gave a room for group. I think I was upgraded to a much more bigger room which is way more better. I arrived almost midnight and they have a 24hrs front desk, for the price, they have all the amenities that a normal hotel could have. Plus they off breakfast buffet. Sadly I came at a wrong time. Whole day raining, all my tours, cancelled. But nevertheless, I was able to visit that places that I planned to visit. Staff was helpful and kind. And hotel is just a few minutes away from the metro station. I highly recommended this hotel.

          The hotel is not new and modern but very clean. The staff is friendly. They provide free breakfast and we leave at 3:30am. So, they prepared breakfast boxes for us free of charge which we did not expect. Very nice. Thanks.

          UNBEATABLE LOCATION”

          I travel to Greece every year for a couple of months and only stay at the Arethusa. The staff are beyond reproach and the rooms and bathrooms are extremely clean. It is within walking distance to a number of sights, beautiful churches and fantastic shopping precinct. Although I have in the past stayed in much more expensive hotels I have found that the Arethusa feels like home and this draws me back here year in year out. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT
