Everything about our stay went very smoothly. The view on the top balcony is amazing! Athens may be a concrete and marble jungle but seeing the high city of Acropolis from the hotel is just magical. Rooms had everything you need- quiet, clean, comfortable. Location is superb - nestled right between where locals live so you get to see the... More

Nice location, exellent view from the roof floor with the breakfast buffet, which btw was surprisingly good. Clean rooms, helpful and serviceminded Staff. This is a good reference for visits to the markets and old City. Acropolis is just 4€ away with a taxi, or by foot if you want to see even more of the streets...

Good location with views to the Acropolis if you get the right room. Room was clean, but despite being told it was non smoking room it stunk of cigarette smoke - like the rest of the place. There are no non smoking rooms despite what you may be told.

With a travelling party of 8, we needed three rooms and didn't want to spend a fortune. This hotel was spotless, had very friendly and helpful staff, and the breakfast made by Irene every morning was great (she also was very friendly and provided great tour advice)! I recommend it! Good value!

We loved our stay at Dryades Hotel! Our room was clean and cozy with a lovely tea kettle. Our balcony overlooked Exarchion and we could see the sea from it as well. The breakfast was delicious and the woman making it was so sweet. We loved the neighborhood, too. It was artsy and lively with many lovely cafés around the... More

This is a very neat, comfortable and inexpensive place to stay in Athens. We were given a double room for the first night but then transferred to a single room (what we had booked). This room faced the city including the Akropolis. You can get some wonderful pictures from the room or even better from the terrace. The staff were... More

The Dreaded Hotel was an excellent place to stay in Athens. The hotel staff was nothing but helpful and the rooms were everything you needed. The hotel was located a little away from city center which was nice to avoid some of the cluster.

I travelled to Athens with 3 young children in September and stayed ay Dryadès for 3 days. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They sent me a detailed email explaining how to reach the property from the airport the day I booked their place. I got a room for 4 people which had an Acropolis view. Although the room... More

We just came back from our vacation to Athena. We spent one night in the hotel. I booked based on reviews here and absolutely the right thing to do! Dryades definately lived up to the great reviews and with a Plus: the owner even helped us to schedule and book a taxi with a fixed low price when we were... More

Staying in Exarchia

Neighborhood Profile
Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
