10-min walk (5 min flat and 5 min uphill) from the metro station. Dodgy neighbourhood with piss smell at some buildings along the way and one guy shooting himself with heroin on the street in broad daylight. I did not dare go out alone at night. I was later told by a friend that this is the neighbourhood where the... More

We booked 3 nights but could only put up with one night. Absolutely the worst and dirtiest hotel we have stayed at while on holiday over here. Staff at front desk were rude and un helpful, told us no breakfast even when we booked it with breakfast. Frightening part of Athens with graffiti everywhere and youths partying and smashing bottles... More

Hotel was very clean, the furniture a bit run down. It was a 10 min walk to the Omonia subway station, which is how we got around town. And the archaeological museum was a short walk away also. Lots of bakery/cafes around for food options. We had a 3 person reservation, and it ended up that a couple and the... More

The Good: We had a 2 bedroom family unit. One room had a double bed, the other had 2 singles. Basic furnishings, reasonably comfortable beds. Good WiFi connectivity and speed. The rooftop at night has a great view of Lycavittos. The location is close to many restaurants, cafe's and taverns. Exarchis which is 50m from the front door was ranked... More

Staying in Exarchia

Neighborhood Profile
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).
