Two hotels connected- we stayed in the Dryades part of the Orion. Ground floor room had a large area. Friendly manager. Make sure you ask the taxi driver to drop off at the front door... hard to find in a side street. DON'T take the stairs if you are walking from the bus stops. Back packers should be fine. It...

Loved this hotel in a quiet but quirky area of Athens. It was really nicely furnished and decorated and the bathroom was all newly equipped. Enjoyed the breakfast overlooking the Acropolis, but at 10.00am it was already a bit hot on the balcony. The area was close to the National Archeological Museum and also had a number of interesting bars... More

Booked at the last minute and glad I did. Staff were friendly and informative. The room was in good nick, with a balcony just big enough for two to sit in the sun, and a powerful shower in the bathroom. The roof top area had a great view of Athens and the Parthenon. At breakfast they'll make you eggs to... More

Staying in Exarchia

Neighborhood Profile
Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
