5 STAR HOTEL IN 1950, NOT SO IN 2015!
Posted Aug 25, 2015 on Hotels
I asked to be moved to the sister hotel next door called The Westin, as The Arion Hotel needed renovation urgently. The mattress had permanent dents. The bed pillows were all but destroyed. The interior was classic 50's decor which had shown wear and tear and and hadn't been maintained. The guests were very, very old. The hotel felt in desperate need for an over-haul. Even the staff were beyond retirement age.
My first impression at check-in was with a cold, disinterest from a young (compared to the other seniors working at the hotel) receptionist who proceeded mechanically and emotinless to check me into my room without hardly any eye to eye contact. Then, when ready to be shown my room after a long and exhausting trip to Athens, was handed my room key and and pointed in the direction of the lift, luggage and all! The Arion Resort and Spa Hotel, is NOT a luxury 5 star hotel in 2015! Maybe it was in 1950?
