Very good hotel, rooms smallish, and with small balcony, but close to everything. The best breakfast that I have ever had in an hotel, there was EVERYTHING to chose from, even home made peach jam and home made marmalade.

The air condition at the room was so weak at summer, you should enhance it's performance The breakfast was good but kindly add beef instead or with pork because many of tourists don't eat pork The superior room should be larger than what we took Thanks

The location is good. It takes only 2~3 minutes to the bus station and metro. The breakfast is delicious. A lot of fruits, breads, and sauces. The fig jam is special for me and it's tasty. Another new thing for me is Greek Coffee. I learn how to make a "prefect" Greek Coffee there ;p. The staff are friendly and...

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood 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.
