Amazing and friendly staff. Decent breakfast (Greek yoghurt is amazing). Bed comfortable, room cool and clean, walking distance to everything. What more could you ask for! Some great restaurants nearby - make sure you go to the one in the nearby market (think it's called Epirus tavern).

The hotel is located in the midpoint between Acropola, Acropolis Museum, Parthenon etc on the south and National Archaeological Museum on the north. The surroundings are perhaps somewhat distracting but the hotel has extremely friendly staff, rooms have air-conditioning and free wi-fi. Please note that the rooms are a little bit outdated for some.

The hotel was a bit lame and difficult to find. I thought it would be nicer for the amount I paid. It is, however, near a metro and much good food. Its breakfast is lame. The shower was horrible. In hindsight, I would stay somewhere more near the beach.

We stayed here for one night on our return from the Cyclades. Just an overnight until our flight the next day. Room was basic, rather tired, & bathroom was small, but the location was very convenient for exploring the centre of Athens. it was clean & air conditioning was good. The buffet breakfast was fine. Staff were helpful & pleasant.

I chose the Economy Hotel for a recent three night stay in Athens. As the name implies, this is an economy, budget rate hotel. In that regard, it lives up to its name. It was nothing special and was entirely forgettable, but it was all that was advertised, a budget hotel located in central Athens. It is a beautiful short... More

This hotel was better than our expectations for an economy hotel. The rooms are comfortable with 2 outside doors for soundproofing. Only the noise of the water used by our neighbors was disturbing us during the night. The staff is so helpful with a nice welcoming, they give you advices, maps, tips, things to see... Breakfast in the morning was... More

Name seriously says it all-for those on a budget and looking for a place that simply gives a place to stay with a simple breakfast then this is the place for you. I value the attractions rather than the room since majority of the time is spend outdoors then inside the hotel.

Economy Hotel is a good choice for a 2 stars hotel in the center of town. The mattress was a bit hard and the restroom tiny, but we could manage that. Don't expect luxury here, but the room itself was large enough and very clean, with a tiny balcony. Wifi was strong. Breakfast (buffet style) was included with a fair... More

Staying in Omonia

Neighborhood Profile
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.
