1. Location - excellent location! 3-4 min walk to Ommonia station and 7-10 min walk to Monastiraki (and the monastiraki station). For first timers, Monastiraki is where you start walking up the acropolis (aside from the acropolis metro station). Anyway, the hotel is near the market where you can find lots of olives, fruits, nuts etc. 2. Room not that... More

If you want an excellent budget hotel, stay here. Rooms are comfortable, as are beds. Quiet due to soundproofing. Very clean. Great location - 1 min to Hop on Hop off bus and 5 mins to central markets - fruit, veg, cheeses, meats, fish, bread. Breakfast buffet basic but definitely adequate in a very nice breakfast room. Terrific staff especially... More

The hotel's location is great: walking distance to most of Athens' attractions and close to 2 metro stations (Omonia and Monastiraki) The staff was very helpful and extremely friendly, they even gave us advice on where to go and where to eat (and the advice were just perfect) The room we stayed in had a nice view and was always...

Getting to Economy Hotel is fairly easy and it is about a 10 minute walk from the metro station. It is in walking distance to the Parthenon and all the major sites in Athens. The staff are incredibly friendly and so knowledgeable about Athens and Greece, which absolutely loved. The room I stayed in was basic and the bathroom was... More

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

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

Staying in Omonia

Neighborhood Profile
Omonia
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.
