When the taxi drove us through this ghetto neighbourhood filled with terrible graffitis to get to the hotel, we thought we were in for a long haul. We were not very impressed with the curb appeal and location at first. To our surprise, we woke up to the most lively neighborhood any traveller could ask for! Shops, merchants, shoppers and...

I would like to start of with the great service at this hotel. The lady at reception was always helpful and helped us book a taxi to the airport (fixed 35 euros across Athens central). The location is ok. About 5-7 mins walk to metro stations. 8-10 mins to the Monastiraki flea market. It's sad to say the state of... More

Great location, very friendly staff. Conveniently placed between the Omonia (M2) and Monastiraki (M3) rail stations, there is plenty to take in and see from this location. The room, while small, was perfect for a single traveler. Nick, the manager, was very kind to let me store my main bag at the hotel at no charge while I shopped and... More

Hi Viktoria, prepaid bookings are usually processed same or next day made, it depends on the load of work..Just to know charges are not made by the booking companies but by the hotels and manually, booking companies do not even check if the card is valid.

The hotel is situated close to Monastiraki metro station but in a terribly dirty street. The manager was incredibly rude, I literally had to beg him four times to show us to our rooms and help us with luggage up the two flights of rickety stairs. When he finally stopped eating his precious watermelon and helped us he kept yelling... 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.
