Accommodation in Athens
Since most of the archaeological sites and tourist attractions in Attica are located in the city center, most Athens hotels are also concentrated there. Syntagma Square, Plaka, Acropolis, Monastiraki, Thission and Panepistimiou Avenue boast upscale five-star Athens hotels and suites. More affordable Athens hotels and hostels can be found in the side streets of the above quarters. These central regions are a few minutes walk from the most important ancient sites and have many shops, restaurants, and cafes.
As it is the main port of Athens Greece, Piraeus also has a wide variety of hotels, from luxurious to more affordable accommodation. You can also find many luxurious Athens hotels, suites, and apartments, with pools and spas, in the southern suburbs of Athens, such as Voula, Glyfada, Alimos, and Vouliagmeni. These areas are quieter and have organized beaches, but they are far from the city center (about 30-40 min by public transport).

Where to stay in Athens
Hotels in Athens are spread in many neighborhoods. There are hotels both in the city center and also along the coastline. As most visitors come to Athens for few days to explore the rich sightseeing of the city, our suggestion is to book accommodation in a walking distance from these sights, or at least a couple of metro stations away. The most convenient places to stay would be Syntagma Square, Plaka, Acropolis, Monastiraki, Thission and Panepistimiou Avenue. These regions are central and only a few minutes walk from the most important ancient sites. The regions of Omonoia and Metaxourgio are also central, but you have to be very careful at nights as they are frequented by immigrants and pickpocketers. Many Athens hotels are also located along the southern suburbs, in regions like Glyfada, Alimos, and Vouliagmeni. These hotels are obviously quieter than hotels in the city center, just have in mind that the distance is about 30-40 min by public transportation.
