We are going to Greece in August, and we are planning to spend 3/4 days in Athens before going to the islands.
I'm looking for a budget hotel in Athens(60-80 € a double room).Although I prefer to stay in Plaka or Thissio Area, the hotels there are quite more expensive. I have found nice hotels, good priced with roof pool(which could be an extra in August in Athens) in Omonia area, but I've read is not a safe area. It is really an unsafe and ugly area? Or it is just what it is told to tourists?I think it was renovated for the Olympic Games.
