Considering this is a budget hotel, the included breakfast is much better than what I had expected. The location is quite good, 8 mins walk from the Omonia metro station, 15 mins walk from the Monastiraki Square, or 25 mins to Acropolis. The room is quite standard, clean and of decent size.

However, the room is not equipped with a coffee machine or kettle to make tea. To use the safe, you will need to go to the front desk to put down 10 Euro deposit to get the key - yes a physical key!

The hotel is conveniently located in close proximity to the city center, making it exceptionally comfortable for guests who prefer to explore on foot. While the rooms are well-maintained and orderly, there is a discernible need for refurbishment. The breakfast offerings are sufficient for a light start to the day. The reception staff exhibited remarkable friendliness and a willingness to address any inquiries. Over the course of the last three years, I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel on four occasions, and I would unquestionably choose to return in the future.

Economy Hotel isn’t fancy, but it’s clean and comfortable and very reasonable. A good breakfast is included in the rate. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The location is good, just a few minutes walk from Monastiraki Square, so very convenient to many sites in Athens. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Great location for many well known sites-10 min from Monistiraki metro.
Comfortable room with smart bathroom.
Staff make it the best stay- we had an unfortunate experience on the metro and the team were so helpful and considerate.
Breakfast fresh and good selection and, again, cheerful and obliging staff.
No complaints, thank you all!

I got my airbnb cancelled last minute and out of the blue I found this hotel.
I paid 45€/night breakfast included.
The guys on the recrptiion are very efficient, professional and kind.
The room was quiet and clean. The AC worked perfectly and there is a little fridge. Also had a huge terrace (but facing a courtyard).
The breackfast was very varied and abundant.
The location is just excellent.
Totally recommended.

The hotel is basic, clean, perfectly located to get the best from this wonderful city. The staff are extremely helpful. There is a supermarket within one minute. The downside is that there are no restaurants close by. That said, the square of Monastiraki is around 10min walk and there is plenty there. We would definitely recommend this hotel. Enjoy!

Stayed here with my wife in Oct for one night before flying to Santorini and then for another two nights upon our return.
Initially booked our two night stay using an on line agency "vacation greece" but booked directly with the hotel after discoverying their web site for our one night stay. Both bookings were handled professionally and without any problems but experience has taught me it is easier and more reassuring to book directly with a hotel and avoid the complications of a middle man.
The hotel was great value for money - the rooms were clean, reasonable size, bathrooms basic but completely functional, breakfast was good for the inclusive room rate charged and the location of the hotel is very central to all the main tourist sites.There is a wide selection of restuarants nearby. Rail and buses are also very close. Free internet access was greatly appreciated. But the best feature of the hotel are the front desk staff. Extremely helpful with good advice and maps and nothing was ever too much trouble for them to do for you. We were able to leave a suitcase in storage at the hotel whilst we were in Santorini.
As mentioned in other reviews there are a few red light shops nearby but we never saw any problems even late at night and our first night room was on that side of the hotel and unless you were a female travelling alone I wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel.
One note of warning - we took a cab from Athens airport to the hotel and were ripped off by a local taxi driver. If you dont mind about a 20 minute walk mainly thru pedestrian malls, you can catch the airport express bus (X95) for 3.20 Euro each. We did it three times walking our suitcases. Ask the hotel for directions - Im sure that they'll help. Or the other alternative would be to use the metro but get some advise before arriving at the airport because, as we found out, there were no staff at the airport station to give you any directions.

We just stayed at the Hotel Economy for 2 nights. As other users have written, it was very clean and the front desk staff were VERY helpful. Upon check in they provided us with a good map and highlighted some must see sights.
Our double room was simple and bathroom small with a small shower. Great location withing walking distance of the Plaka, National Museum etc etc and close to Metro lines.
Yes, the area is known as the red light district but we did not feel unsafe at any time. Do not be alarmed when you see a few --- Shops/Movie theatres nearby upon your arrival. They are discreet and you do not see anyone hanging around them and nobody will bother you. This hotel is a bright spot in a neighbourhood that is cleaning up its appearance. Again- we felt very safe and for 70 Euro including breakfast, in a great location, this place was perfect.
When we left for our early moring flight they even gave us some sandwiches and sweet bread wrapped up for our travels.
In communicating with them via email before our trip, they provided detailed directions to the hotel from the airport and gave us the options, instructions and prices for metro, bus and taxi. Because of this we were confident taking the metro from the airport which worked out perfectly and saved us a lot of money versus taking a taxi.
Nice bright breakfast room as well.
They do ask that you leave your key with them when you leave the hotel so that they know if they can clean your room because you are out. We didn't mind this at all- saved us from lugging around a key and possibly losing it.
For a $10 deposit you can get a safe key-the safe is in the closet.
If you stay here check out the nearby Central Market- very neat to see.
We would recommend for someone who doesn't require the high priced frills and who will be spending most of the time touring around the city.

We stayed one night in this hotel as we arrived in Athens during a general strike - the ferries were not sailing. I called the hotel from Denmark and reserved two doubles without any problems. We were met with all friendliness and installed in the basic rooms just behind the town hall of Athens, one street away from Athinas and the modern agora. The location is known as the red light distrisct during the nighttime - but do not be afraid - we felt safe. The rooms are not too big, but they are nice and first of all clean. The hotel has recently been renovated (Olympics 2004, I guess). The hotel has a shaded roof garden with partial view of the Acropolis. You can buy drinks in the reception and bring them to the roof garden. Breakfast is very good for greek standard: Honey, yoghurt, different types of bread, cereals, milk, coffe, tea, juice and the traditional, but very dry greek cake. We can recommend this hotel as a friendly, simple and basic option. A double costed us 69 euro.
