Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).

When we first arrived at the hotel I admit I was a little uneasy. The surrounding area looked completely abandoned and pretty dark. However, lots of central Athens is like that at the moment because of the financial crisis. The hotel itself is well maintained, the rooms are nice

Is there parking at the hotel?
We didn't have a car - we used a taxi, but I don't recall a parking area. I found this on their website. "Special rates in private car park within walking distance."
