Where to Stay in Athens

Where to Stay in Athens

In general, the capital of Greece offers economical accommodation, especially if we compare it to other major cities in Europe. There are of course high-end hotels, but if you are on a budget, you’ll find good and inexpensive accommodation in the city center.   

Best places to stay in Athens

The best areas to stay in Athens are Plaka, Monastiraki or Syntagma Square and their surroundings. These neighborhoods are not only charming, but are very close to most of the city's top attractions, so you can get to them by foot.  

Contrarily, the neighborhoods to avoid are: Metazourgeio and the streets to the north and west of Omonia Square, and to the north of Panagi Tsaldari are not very safe. The immigrants arriving in Athens have settled in the area and it can be a little dangerous.
