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.
If you are not already in the area, the easiest way to reach the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens is by metro, red line/number 2, Panepistimiou Station. As you are out from the metro station, just cross the boulevard with the same name and here you are!
The University of Athens was founded in 1837, but the current building...
The kitchen is impressive and prices medium-low but do not get fooled by this. The area is very dangerous and shady, we saw 2-3 medium to major illegal activities in 1-2 minutes of walking, we got back to the restaurant and called a cab. Cab driver also confirmed the junkie and refugees area.
No parking area.
Go by cab, leave...
Great food at reasonable price, my favourite was the exotic salad and choco mousse. Lovely music, jazz-style - loud noise from the kitchen is a pity though. I just wish they did not offer plastic straws and had more organic choices. Please refuse the straw.
After reading the reviews for this little yogurt shop/bakery. I had to visit. And I am so glad I did. We had the doughnuts with ice cream and it was delightful. The staff were friendly and everything was very reasonably priced.
Rooms are small but efficient and spotless. Front desk staff speak excellent English and are extremely helpful in steering you in the right direction for dining, tours, or travel. I highly recommend you include the breakfast with your reservation.
This hotel is located directly next to a local market where you can see fresh fish, meats and vegetables / fruit. It was nice to see the local traditional market. You should go see early morning - we were there Monday when the shop owners were setting up for Monday morning.
The hotel was really nice and clean, neat and...
Good hotel centrally located with good facilities. Roof top bar restaurant an pool are grest. Don't be put off by adjoining side streets that seem a little seedy as security at front puts all fears to rest. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Would stay here again.
We booked a comfort room with free upgrade but we received a very small room with a window without any view, the wall of the neighbour building only three meters away from us. But we ask in reception for a change of room and they showed us two different rooms. The new room was large, comfortable bed, free good wi-fi....

We stayed at the Polics Grand only for 2 days.
Our room was very small, even compared to other hotels we stayed at in Greece and other European countries! Nevertheless, the rooms were clean and functional....we werent really planning to spend much time in the room any way!
Breakfast: was really good! You could make your own Greek coffee which...
