Neighbourhood
Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.

We stayed 4 nights and found the front desk staff to have the best customer service. We arrived very late after 22 hours in flight or airports. They directed us to a wonderful restaurant just down the street where we had great meal. The breakfasts here are among the best we have

Hotel situates next to a busy street so traffic noise can be annoying even on 5th floor, and the surrounding area is not nice, abandoned big houses and graffiti on every wall, dark alleys and unfriendly looking neighborhood. Don't take fully dark side alleys on night, common

I would recommend the hop on-hop off bus tour... big red double deck buses that allow you to see all the major sights in about 1.5 hours, and you can decide to get off and on as you please. Not sure if there is one area to stay better than another... but easy access to metro is nice. must do Acropolis and Acropolis museum, national museum, Monastiraki area is good shopping and many many restaurants. there is a market area that looked interesting. so many things to do, hence why the bus tour for a couple days is good!
