This being our first time to Athens we didn't know what to expect. We took bus 51 from the KTEL bus station to get to downtown Athens and then just walked to our hotel which was decently close. The hotel is about a 10 to 20 min walk away from all the major sites and a block away from a...

Arriving: We grabbed a cab from the airport and headed to the hotel. Cab ride was great, brought us through the meat market which was interesting to see. Upon exiting the cab ride we are welcomed by the glass door entrance to Athinaikon. The entrance is accompanied with an overwhelming smell of moth balls,thankfully the hotel does not smell like...

Thanks very much for your review Janine and also for the detailed description and guide tips on Athens. Im sure this will help many travelers visiting our city for the first time. I would even suggest posting it on some of tripadivsor's forums with topics on Athens. I would just like to point out a few reasons why we ask...

This hotel is in very good location, in between three main squares of the city (Sintagma, Monastiraki and Omonia), very close (not even 5 min walk) to the metro station Monastiraki (from there you take direct metro to the airport). There is a market (agora) next to it. It is very clean in common places and in the room. It...

The hotel can't be faulted on location for sure. While the neighborhood was a little unnerving at first (so much graffiti!), it's all quite safe. The streets were a little empty at first, we reached Saturday night and all shops remained closed Sunday as well. But come Monday morning, we were greeted with so much activity and life, took us...

I was very satisfied while staying there. It is very close to monastirakis, which is the best location you could wish for when you want to see the acropolis, etc. The owners were very kind and helpfull. A good and cheap hostel!

The people working at the reception desk were very nice. The area(Psirri) looks ghetto, but in reality it's safe; lively neighborhood during the day. No elevators, but that wasn't a problem for me. Very close to main attractions; Monastiraki Square, Syntagma, Ermou St., and easy access to metro. We went to Mykonos for the weekend and the reception desk was...

When the taxi drove us through this ghetto neighbourhood filled with terrible graffitis to get to the hotel, we thought we were in for a long haul. We were not very impressed with the curb appeal and location at first. To our surprise, we woke up to the most lively neighborhood any traveller could ask for! Shops, merchants, shoppers and...

I would like to start of with the great service at this hotel. The lady at reception was always helpful and helped us book a taxi to the airport (fixed 35 euros across Athens central). The location is ok. About 5-7 mins walk to metro stations. 8-10 mins to the Monastiraki flea market. It's sad to say the state of...

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood Profile
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
