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

Cost x Benefit is very good. Good location, hotel is near two metro stations which allow you to move throughout the city in a very fast way, including Port and Airport. People working at hotel are very nice, supportive and always willing to provide information for you to enjoy Athens as much as possible.

This hotel is indeed close to the most important attractions, to the Plaka area and the Monastiraki metro station. From the point of view of location, it is convenient, although the area is dirty and crowded. One of the receptionists was extremely helpful, willing to help with information, we appreciated all his help. The other one however (which did the... More

This was a return visit for us, having stayed there a few years ago. The staff are the highlight of this hotel - very helpful and kind. The rooms are basic but clean. We particularly love the rooftop terrace with its great view of the city and the acropolis. The location is perfect - easy walking distance to the sights... More

This hotel is within 30 or so walk of the Acropolis and within walking distance of two metro stations. The staff were very helpful to advise about how to get around and what to look at and the time frame that this would take. We were at the acropolis top within an hour of arriving on a sunny afternoon and... More

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
