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

Hotel is clean, helpful and in an excellent location - right beside one of the main train stations, and you can see the acropolis form their roof terrace - this place is excellent, at an excellent price.

We stayed there twice. We had a double bed room first on the 5th floor and at our second stay on the 6th floor. The rooms were clean with a safe box, A/C and a mini fridge., the only negative: small bathrooms. Breakfast was inclunded into the rate and had free highspeed internet for the guests. The front desk staff... More

Despite being in a seedy neighborhood (the area is crawling with hookers at night), the Economy Hotel is exceptionally clean and reasonably well appointed. It is also within walking distance of many of the city's best areas to go out for dinner and bars.

I was very pleased during my recent stay at the Economy Hotel in Athens. The staff is friendly and helpful, the VERY reasonable price includes a nice breakfast, and internet access is free. While it's not in the nicest area of Athens, I felt comfortable and safe at all times and think the area has been made out to be... 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.
