4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel had interesting and fun decor which made it a little special. Great service in the restaurant for breakfast. A little out of the way from everything and the walk down Athinas street became tiresome (how many hardware stores and fish markets could there possibly be?). Overall, I'd likely never stay in Athens again, but if I had to,... More

First the bad news. This hotel is a little way out from the main tourist sites in and around Plaka, although you can reach them in a 15 or 20 minute walk. And it is close to the metro station in Omonoia Square. I was told that the area round the back of the hotel is best avoided – although... More

From arrival to departure the staff was great and attentive. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice little welcome treat upon arrival. On my departure date I was leaving at 5am and knew I would miss breakfast which was unfortunate because the breakfast was quite nice but the staff made sure to put together a little to go... More

The pictures don't tell enough of the story of this unique boutique hotel. The decor is funky and eclectic, with classical and graffiti art, and an energetic spirit that I feel truly reflects Athens. As cool as the hotel was, the staff surpassed it. The manager, Mary Karassouli, and all of the reception, bell, housekeeping, and food services staff were... More

A tad late in writing this, I stayed at Pallas Athena for 3 days/nights early October 2014 after several weeks at the wonderful Levendis Estate on Ithaca - (now there's a place to go for a true Greek Island holiday away from the 'maddening tourist trappings') - and how I loved Pallas Athena. Perfect location in the middle of the... More

Location..... (part of the point lost) As You might have guessed..... I'd love to be able to move it 10 minutes down the road to the Plaka/Monastiraki area. That said, you can't hear the main road outside (we're round the back), and it literally is only a 10 minute walk. The room...... Lovely. Good bed, safe, TV, mini bar and... More

We had two nights in this hotel before heading down the Attica coast to Cape Sounio. I had specifically wanted to spend a couple of days in Athens as I had only ever been to the city as a "stopover" and I particularly wanted to visit the Acropolis. This hotel is in a great location for the Acropolis, it is... More

My wife and I spent two nights at the Pallas Athena, and came away impressed with our room and the quality of service, both of which were excellent. Prior to our arrival the hotel asked if we would like to be met by a car; we decided to use that service and were very pleased. Priced at €50 it was... More

The hotel was very nice and I felt safe and secure once inside. Nice decor. Hot shower and good internet. Fabulous breakfast with wide array of both Greek and non Greek food. Only negative was the area which unfortunately I think is a problem with central Athens generally than the particular hotel. Lots of dodgy people around. I felt perfectly... More

The hotel is located about 10 minutes from the main tourist attractions and more or less across the street from the central market. The decoration is very good, staff very professional and the breakfast great! There is also a hop on hop off bus stop just outside the hotel.

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.
