Whether you're looking for a very cheap hotel in Athens or you fancy living like royalty, we'll show you the best deals available...
Staying in central Athens hotels is advisable if you'd prefer to be within walking distance of the major historical sights. Districts to look out for include the Plaka, Syntagma, Psyri (also spelled Psiri, Psyrri, and Psirri), and Monasteraki. Some of the historic central areas, such as the Plaka, are closed to traffic, which enables a better night's sleep. Syntagma, on the other hand, buzzes with cars, motorbikes and nightlife. If you'd prefer to stay outside of Athens, then car hire is available for you to get around and visit the sites.
There are budget hotels in Athens, even in the central areas. Luxury hotels are dotted around the city, though mostly concentrated in the central areas. Four- and five-star Athens hotels tend to grant the finest views of the Acropolis of Athens, and rooftop pools and sunny terraces are common in the most exclusive establishments.
You'll find properties from well-known names such as Hilton, Crowne Plaza, Melia, Radisson Blu, Westin and Holiday Inn, as well as a huge range of locally run and managed hotels. The grandest property is the magnificent Hotel Grande Bretagne Athens, with views over the parliament buildings and the city's main square.
