Hotel in Athens?

Postby SueO » 28 Jan 2014, 11:20

Not really a question about Symi but I thought Symi regulars might have some ideas. We're staying in Symi for our usual two weeks at the end of September. Being fed up with rubbish flights (Manchester - Rodos), thought we might take a little longer and fly to Athens first, spend a couple of days there, then take the Blue Star to Symi. So - can anyone suggest a decent hotel in Athens? We'd like to be fairly central and, while we're not looking for the height of luxury, we're prepared to pay for somewhere nice. All suggestions welcome!

Hi Sue, I've stayed at the Herodion Hotel which is near the Acropolis and Plaka, it was very pleasant with the added luxury of a rooftop sun terrace and hot tubs with lovely views of the Parthenon. Also easy access by public transport from the airport with only one metro change.

Hi Sue I stayed in the Electra Palace in Athens and basically you walk out the door and onto the plaka ,where all the shops and taverns/bars are ,its on the luxury side but worth those few extra Euros.In the evening you can sit on the roof top pool and bar area and watch the Acropolis all lit up.

In November Nicholas and I stayed at the Omiron which is only about a block away from Syntagma and easy walking distance to everywhere - shops, Benaki Museum, Acropolis, new Acropolis Museum etcetera. In a quiet side street so no passing traffic noise. That was 60 euros per night for the two of us including breakfast.

We always use Attalos or Cecil at Athinai Street, very close to Monistiraki and the metro. Good view to Akropolis from the roof terrace and reasonable prices
