Perfect Location

Staff very friendly and helpful. He spoke perfect English and provided invaluable information. For an European hotel, room was very nice and the location extremely close to all attractions. I'd definitely stay at the Economy Hotel again.

Use the subway from the airport. Only 6 euros and very easy to use and clean and safe. Be sure to exit on to Athinas Str. If not, no big deal, hotel was easy to find.

Great place to stay

This hotel was a very pleasant surprıse for us as we had stayed in another Athens hotel and realized that much of the area was no so great. But this hotel (although across from a sex theater) was clean and comfortable. Obviously you get what you pay for and compared to a fıve star hotel thıs does not have many ammenities but for the prıce we could not have asked for more. Staff was frıendly, place was clean, computers were free, breakfast was good, and a close walk to the metro. We would defınıtely stay agaın!

A Great Place to Stay!

We were traveling with my 20 year old daughter, so the room was a little cramped with three beds in it. However, it was spotless as we've come to expect in Greece, and very quiet considering its city location. The white noise of the AC never hurts either! The breakfast was a lovely spread including fruit, and they didn't rush to put it away at the appointed hour. Cigarette odor was minimal, and about as good as you're likely to get in Greece as non-smokers' rights are still not taken all too seriously here. We wanted to return and make it our base of operations in Greece, but it was full. Location is on the edge of a not so good neighborhood, but that street is OK and we were quite comfortable coming and going.

On weekends go to the Plaka and check out the lovely bouzouki restaurant at Mnesikleous and Lisiou: Palaia Taverna tou Kritikou [The Critic's Old Taverna]. Good food, good service, loads of character, and not your usual sirtaki music.

National Museum was a must see. Plaka, many shops and restaurants. Restaurants with acropolis view expensive and not the necessarily the best food.

My review of Economy

Ok for the money. Area is not the most desirable. A short walk to Omonia and Monastiraki Metro stations tho and you can also walk to the acropolis.

Clean, pleasant, well-located hotel in Athens

Being somewhat dazed by just arriving in Athens for the first time in 40 years, I was instantly relieved when the taxi driver found the Economy Hotel. The young man at the Reception Deck could not have been more helpful and friendly. He provided an excellent map of the area, explained the intricacies of Greek hotel rooms (inserting room key into box to turn lights on) and gave clear directions to nearest Metro stop, including information on fares, payment methods, etc. He was exceptionally polite and very well-informed; also spoke very good English! The room was simple but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. An added bonus was the free internet access provided to guests by merely requesting a 30-min. card from the Desk. The included continental breakfast was perfectly adequate, the food was fresh and plentiful. The room was also pleasant and very clean and comfortable. When I decided to return to Athens 2 weeks later, I was very sad to be told that there were no rooms available. I had become very comfortable at the Economy Hotel. I would definitely return and I would definitely recommend it to any friend planning to visit Athens. Did I mention that it is within a nice walking distance to the Acropolis! and some excellent museums.

A block to Athenis St: for restaurants, funky flea market & ruins of Hadrian's Library. Around corner is nice cafe under trees beside mosque built atop ancient church. Continue walking up path to the Acropolis. Hotel is close to shopping of Plaka and near Omonia stop on green Metro line. Go to Piraeus port very easily in 25 mins for .70 Euros).

Decent Budget Hotel

The Economy Hotel in Athens is in a prime spot, located within walking distance to many of the restaurants, shops, and tourist attractions (ie the Acropolis). The staff was very friendly and helped us out with maps of the area and suggestions as to where to go and what to do. It was also pretty cheap and I considered it good value for the money. You get what you pay for here, so don't expect much in the way of ammenities or comfortable rooms. Our room was small and generally needed some renovations, but at least it was clean and the air conditioning worked. All in, I would recommend this to travelers looking for a cheap place to stay in the center of Athens.

You can walk to the Plaka (pedestrian shopping district) or the nearby neighborhoods with numerous restaurants and bars. Many of the streets are also blocked off from cars which is a bonus considering the traffic that usually plagues the athens streets, but watch out for scooters and mopeds- the fly down streets and alleys here.
