After reading reviews, we weren't too sure what to expect. However, once arriving we were pleased. The room was just enough for what it needed to be. The staff were very helpful directing you where to go and what to see. Some may say the area isn't too flash, but it was very easy to get to where you needed... More

I should warn you the hotel seems located on scary block, but Greece is very safe country over all. Location is excellent and front desk personnels are professional and courtesy. As soon as we get there, he gave us a city map and marked everything we should see and explained what we should expect. Room is clean and specious. They... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend before we headed Island hopping. We arrived about midnight and I was a bit worried arriving that late having read some of the reviews about the area but didn't feel unsafe at all. Even headed back out for something to eat! As other reviewers said, yes there are sex shops but they... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Economy Hotel. I always worry when I book accomodation online so it was a relief to walk into this spotlessly clean hotel with good size rooms, comfortable beds and airconditioning that worked well. They also serve a good breakfast, not just bread and jam like some hotels but hard boiled eggs, ham,... More

OK, this Hotel is a real bargain if all you are worried about is saving some cash or like me it was a last minute business booking and I was there for less than 24 hours. The hotel is right next to a sex shop and a gay peepshow is about 5 meters from the front door, not my thing!... More

We stayed one night before catching the bus to the Sporades. Clean room and helpful staff. Locationwise it is very convenient being close to both Omonia and Monastiraki metro stations. I do not understand all the fuss about the area being unsafe, we are talking about one of the safest cities in Europe! We were even given a breakfast pack... More

We stayed there for 4 nights total - 2 nights prior heading to Santorini and 2 nights after we came back. Yes, there are sex shops around the hotel. But we NEVER felt unsafe, no fishy people around. And we did walk back to the hotel at night (like 11pm) from the Plaka area, and it was all ok. The... More

It is really too bad that Economy Hotel is located where it is. They obviously work hard to make you feel comfortable while in the hotel, with helpful front desk staff, a decent buffet breakfast, free internet, clean rooms with A/C and a TV. Perhaps they are trying to make up for the fact that their hotel is located next... More

There's nothing wrong with the Economy...in fact, it is perfect for budget travellers, with fine, clean rooms, mildly functional AC, and a TV bracketed to the wall. You really can't beat the price. It is not a memorable place, but in Athens, you don't want to spend much time in your room. It should be an oasis away from the... More

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.
