Athens Hotel

Jump to last reply

I've looked at the Fodors hotel recommendations; reviewed some of the tripadvisor reports, and now I look to you, dear friends, for any sparkling recommendations on your favorite hotels in Athens -- one of the few places in Europe we have not been. I have done the "Greece" search, but most topics are on the Islands or places to see, and we already have that info covered.

Assuming we book this tour (yes, you heard it, Surfergirl and spouse are actually going to try one of these funny things called "tours" out!) we'll be booked at the Electra Palace Hotel in the Plaka area of Athens for 2 nights before this cool looking historical cruise with a UC alumni group. But we want to get the show on the road a few days before and get there early. Now, we could tack on a few pre-tour days at the Electra, but I thought maybe we could find some place just a little different, just to compare.

Our "must haves" are internet access (if not free wifi in room, then at least free wifi in the lobby), coffee in the morning would be good, and spouse likes a flat screen tv. I like an area where you can walk outside at night without being scared to death, with bars and restaurants within walking distance. Price -- under 200 euro/night would be nice.

So . . . what say you?
