Athens hotels

Jump to last reply

I am sure this question has been asked numerous times, but I am having trouble deciding what area to stay and in what hotel for our brief stop in Athens. We arrive on a flight from Mykonos at 10:30 AM after a 2 week trip in the Cyclades. We are staying 2 nights in Athens, but we will have approximately 1 and 1/2 days to see the most popular sites as our flight leaves at 7:00 AM. It seems the Plaka neighborhood would be our best option to be able to walk to sites and restaurants. All of the accommodations I have chosen in the Cyclades (Santorini, Mykonos, and Naxos) are small, quaint, and Greek owned. I have spent so much time researching these places to make sure my trip is perfect! I am hoping they will give me the toal Greek experience unlike staying in larger or chain hotels. I would hate to end my trip in Athens by staying in a non-descript hotel with no character. I want to avoid hotels catering to tour groups. I would like to stay somewhere that would have a balcony with an acropolis view and be convenient to major attractions, restaurants and transportaion. It can be a hotel, B & B or self-catering apartment. I would like a little charm and would prefer a non-smoking room. I would like to spend no more than $125 EU, less if possible. I know we will not be spending much time in our room, so it does not have to be luxurious, just clean. Any ideas on neighborhoods and places to stay would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!
