The reviews of it being in a sketchy area is true. At night there's a bunch of men just hanging around the street, which made me think there's either drug or gay activity around here, I even saw a prostitute get picked up (the only other woman besides me on the street). But the hotel is close to the metro,... More

Positives. Hotel and room were clean, staff was friendly and helpful. We got a low rate for the room, but considering the negatives, cannot give more than average rating for value. Negatives. Room was the smallest and most uncomfortable room we stayed in during a two week trip to Greece. The hotel is located in a pretty bad neighborhood AND... More

The hoel is basic but clean and with all you coul need for a place to sleep (nothing more). The staff is helpful and speaks english most of the time. The breakfast is quite good for the price. Too bad the coffe shop has no service beyond breakfast. The area is really not nice, especially at night, unless you are... More

I was a woman on my own and having arrived at the Omonia metro station spent some time trawling about seedy streets where police with truncheons were much in evidence before I found the locked glass doors of the hotel. They opened at once when the lovely receptionist saw me trying to get in and not looking like one of... More

As with other reviews, the area of this hotel is in a very scary area. I would not recommend this hotel for women, seniors or the unadverturous. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Do not arrive after sundown.

The extra money to stay in Hotel Pythagorion is worth it. Although this hotel is fine, by comparison it doesn't have the same sense of comfort. However, this is a run-of-the mill Best Western, containing clean, standard rooms with everything you could need. The only big problem was the thickness of the walls – someone knocked on a door down... More

I am Greek and I lived in Athens for years so I know what I am talking about. Omonoia had cleaned up in the 1990s but now its back where it was in the 1980s. Seedy, full of nasty looking people and drug addicts. This does not mean that it is unsafe as similar areas in Paris or London. It... More

Hotel is clean and friendly, a good breakfast and friendly knowledgable staff. Room was perfectly adequate for a short stay and the bathroom was a typical european size! The area around the hotel is less celubrious but interesting if you are a people watcher! It is in a poor area of athens just off omonia square, but the people there... More

The hotel its self is typical for the price in Europe. However the neighborhood is dirty, seemingly unsafe, and extraordinarily difficult to navigate. It is advisable to take taxis to any location away from the hotel, which negates the value of the stay. Each time we told a local where we were staying, they demanded to know who put us... More
