My overall experience was probably more negative given i had my phone and wallet stolen on my way to the hotel. But it is close to shops, downtown, and a lot of sits are within walking distance. So if you don't mind staying at a 2 start motel based on north american rating, then you should be fine.

The Price was good- hotel is not new 2. Normal Buffet Breakfast 3. Kind receptionist 4. Room cleaning was not very good 5. Free Wifi internet 6. it is near Omonia Metro... More

I took a group of university Classics students to the Ionis hotel in Easter this year. The location, as has been mentioned countless times in other reviews, is incredibly seedy. Drug dealers and prostitutes are rife and seemingly open about their practices around the hotel, and the hotel staff also gave us fairly grave warnings about bagsnatchers and pickpockets in... More

We walked into the hotel lobby about 1:30 a.m. (our ferry was delayed from Ios, which arrived late into Piraeus/Athens) and the Reception very quickly checked us in (they had thought we weren't coming). The 2 huge beds filled up most of the room, not enough walking space so we had to place our luggage bags on the chairs and... More

We got transferred to this hotel due to a plumming issue at our original one. When we first arrived the inside of the hotel looked nice, although our room was quite old fashioned and wasn't overly clean. However over all we were still happy to stay here however when we left the hotel to walk around, that is when we... More

we stayed for ten nights here in june 2012. the hotel was clean enough and had a central location. the hotel met our basic needs although the breakfast got a bit repeatative. the area isnt swo great but we felt safe enough. We however didn't spend much time in the hotel as we were far to busy exploring athens.

Staying in Omonia

Neighborhood 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.
