I have been several times in Athens and always stayed in the very touristic center. Orion hotel is a bit more far away from Akropolis, but it deserve to stay there ! Very nice situation, with helpfull staff. Rooms/bathroom are clean. View from roof terrasse is great and you can easily find nice places for a drink or a meal... More

Perfect if you want to stay on a young and savage neighborhood. The streets are plenty of graffiti the people is very friendly and at night you can find lots of young people having fun without disturbing. The location is good if you like to walk to enjoy the city...you will arrive to the old city in about 15-20 min.... More

The owners of the hotel were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Hotel is 10 mins walk away to the center. We stayed at the hotel with our 2 kids which was perfectly fine. We recommend this hotel. Terrace was the best place to see Athens other than Acropolis. Cute coffee shops and very arty scenery around.

This hotel is located against the Strefi hill in the neighbourhood of Enarchia. 10 minutes walk from Omonia Square. Enarchia has many bars and restaurants and a few tourists go there. Forget staying in or close to the Plaka. You're in tourist world. Hotel Orion has a roof terras where you can view almost everything of Athens. The staff is... More

Best place in Athens among medium-priced hotels, not just for the wonderful Acropolis view, the clean rooms, the good WiFi in the rooms, its central location etc, but above all for the warmth and generosity of owners and staff. We've been returning for years!

The hotel itself was nice especially for the money we paid. The room was fairly decent, clean and airy with a decent bathroom but the location is real creepy, alot of hippie-like people hanging on the very dark streets

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel, the staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel was clean and comfortable, great views of Lycavitos and the Acropolis. Breakfast is on offer, but we did not partake, the beds were nice and comfortable and the hotel is well situated if you dont mind walking.

Clean room, warm and helping staff and great view from the roof. They also have free parking. 30 minutes walk to Acropolis and Lots of resterunts near by. Didn't take breakfest, not sure it's worth the money.

Have just stayed here with a group of teenage girls as part of a voluntary trip. Was so much higher quality than expected and the staff could not have been more kind and helpful, really went out of their way to accommodate us. Excellent for those on a budget. Location is a little far away from the main sights but... More

The hotel itself was lovely. It was very clean, the rooms were quite nice. There was also a full kitchen on the top level with a terrace that looked out over the city where you could prepare yourself some breakfast (there was extra cost if you wanted them to cook) or have a drink after returning in the evenings.

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).
