We visited the hotel with 26 students from a danish highschool. The rooms were plain, but clean and breakfast was good. You could not expect such good service for such a low cost at a 2 star hotel. Just to make it perfect, the hotel has a rooftop terrase with great view over the city.

I have mixed views about this hostel. The service was (overall) pretty good, the rooms were very basic, but clean for the amount that you pay for it. The location is okay, not too great in comparison with a lot of other hostels that we saw closer to the center. We had another friend on this trip with us whose... More

I have stayed in many different hotels around the world but have never received as good a service as I did here! When we checked in the guy in the reception gave us a map over the city and told us what places to visit, when they were open and what it costs to get in. So we were all... More

This hotel is a very good base if you wish to explore the Acropolis, Monastiraki & Plaka area. It is a short 10 minute walk to Monastiraki & Plaka neighborhood. The rooms were very clean and breakfast was basic. The staff was very friendly and helpful with information. We had to leave at 5:00 AM to catch a ferry and... More

After living in hotels, guesthouses, hostels, campsites and apartments for the last 200+ days, the reception at Economy is by far the best. Upon check-in we were given a detailed description of how to get to the main sites in Athens along with the prices and where passes could be used and for how long. Plus on our way out... More

This is a great place to base yourself in Athens. Everything is walkable from here (although I do like walking) - you don't need public transport to get to the historic sites from this hotel, nor the restaurants (good restaurants 15-20 minute walk away with views of the Acropolis). I spent 8 nights here. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable... More

This hotel offers great value for money if you want a central location and a comfortable stay, for a few days city break. The Economy Hotel is positioned just off one of the main streets in Athens and easily accessible from the metro stop if you are coming by public transport from the airport. In the square opposite, you can... More

This place is perfectly fine for a budget stay in Athens. My husband and I stayed here on our last night of our honeymoon because it is very close to a metro stop for the airport. It's located in a kind of seedy alley way, but that alley way is right off of a main street with lots of cafes... More
