This hotel had everything you would expect for the price. By no means luxurious, but It was clean and comfortable, and the included breakfast buffet was pretty good. Perfect if like me you will be spending most of your time out and about in the city rather than hanging around in the hotel. I had a quiet room; a 2... More

The hotel is located in the centre of Athens between the two squares, Omonoia and Monastiraki. The staff was very friendly and always wanted to help us with information about places to visit. The breakfast was quite boring. The same food everyday and only very small amounts of fruit.

The hotel is located in an area that is not very attractive but everything else was exceptional value. The staff went out of their way to assist us with information and directions. While it is not a luxury hotel, it was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Everything worked well and the breakfast which was included in the price had a... More

Excellent location - a 5 minute stroll to Monastiraki - the main gathering place to watch people...and go window shopping in the Plaka. All staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and gave excellent advice on what to see and when and where to eat dinner. Breakfast had lots of variety and open at good hours. Close to travel agents, stores... More

This hotel is in an excellent location - close to the Monastiraki & Omnia metro stations & close to the pedestrian shopping streets. The staff were really friendly & helpful - they knew where all the museums were and their opening times and were able to offer advice on ferries, buses, trains & metros. The breakfast was really great -... More

This is my second trip to Athens, and after the first (back in 2009) being a bit marred by a bad hotel in a bad area, I wanted to be careful in choosing a a decent place in a decent location this time. Economy hotel was a great and yet still affordable choice. I have learnt that Athens in general,... More

Booked this hotel after staying in an awful hostel that was more expensive than Economy Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised, the staff were very welcoming and helpful, the rooms spacious, clean and comfortable (with a shower that didnt flood the bathroom!), good a/c and a good continental breakfast. Excellent location, everything within walking distance. Highly recommend this hotel for budget... More

The hotel is about 10 mins walking distance from Monastraki station which makes every part of the city easily accessible. It's also close to the Omonia station so you have quick access to both metro lines. It was easy and safe to walk to the hotel at night. The staff welcomes you with a big smile.

Very good location to everything. Walking distance to Monistiraki square, flea market, shopping area and Acropolis. The hotel is very clean Dan the rooms are cleaned every day. The breakfast is good for a two star hotel. The staff are very welcoming and helpful.
