Hotels in Athens

 

Greece’s capital is rising as a cool and creative destination to visit in the heart of the Mediterranean, with bars, galleries and boutiques cropping up in the city centre. It’s the oldest city in Europe, and makes for heady mix of history, Greek hospitality and relaxed atmosphere – perfect for a city break at a slower pace.  For travellers in search of more fun after hours, Athens doesn’t disappoint either – stay in one of the central hotels or hostels to see why.

 

Syntagma

 

Syntagma Square is Athens’s cultural and political hub – it’s where you want to stay if you’re here to be in the thick of it. There are some really grand hotels in the area, however there are also budget options if you’re here to explore the nightlife.

 

Monastiraki Square

 

Monastiriki still has a few of the features of 19th century Athens, including the charming Kotzia Square, and the Athens City hall (it’s the ‘Old Town’ of Athens). Explore them in the daytime, or take an evening stroll around the twinkly lights of the restaurants and bars in the area. If you’re here on business or know you need to be near the Stock Exchange, try one of the glossy hotels or boutique hotels for size.

 

Plaka

 

Although Monastiraki Square has most of the features of an ‘Old Town’, this is where to stay if you want all of the amenities on your doorstep – tavernas, supermarkets, bars, you name it, all found on cobbled streets surrounding your hotel. You can walk to the acropolis or the temples from the inns, hotels and guesthouses in the area, which are well suited to most travellers.  

 

Psirri

 

As Athen’s has become a ‘redeveloped’ European city, a number of bars, cafes and clubs have started to open up after dark to welcome in the new and hip crowds. During the daytime, travellers can stimulate their minds with a trip to one of the nouveau art galleries in the area, before sampling some of Athens’ nightlife after dark. Naturally, there are affordable hotels and hostels in Psirri – perfect for exploring the city with a group of friends.

 

Athinas Street

 

Athinas Street links up Monastiraki Square with Omonia, as well as being home to Athens Central markets. If you enjoy self catering city breaks, make sure you’re based close to here for fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses and meats, as well as a few other vendors selling artisan crafts. There are a few quieter areas around here too, which are great if you’re visiting with family. Have a gander at the hotels built into the Neoclassical architecture of 19th century Athens, as there are some boutique options and affordable 4 star stays which are perfect for city breaks.
