Good location in Athens, not too far from Metro station; 15-20 min walk to Acropolis. Staff very friendly and VERY helpful as they seemed to read our minds as to what our needs were. Rooms are small and basic, but clean. Elevators extremely small, epecially with luggage! Breakfast was basic, but sufficient. Good Hotel. I reccomend it.

My sister and I were a bit leery about booking this hotel, but we read so many good reviews about it we went ahead and did it. We were so glad! The Economy hotel is a nice budget hotel, just a bit of a walk from Omonia square in Athens. We were in Europe for 26 days and this hotel...

We stayed 3 nights beginning october. We found it easily from the airport. Nice welcome with advices for visiting the city. Bedroom clean. Breakfast: average. Bad view on roof of other dirty buildings. Day: Area is ok. Night: Better if you are a man or with. (hookers, dirty streets). +: Five min. walk from a very crowded and parting place...

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...

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...

Stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend before we headed Island hopping.

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,...

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!...

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.
