Boasting over 500 hotels there is no lack of affordable hotel rooms in Athens. With everything from understatedly elegant boutique hotels providing views of the Acropolis, to budget-friendly comfortable places and everything in between, Athens has something to suit every traveller.
As the host city of the 2004 Summer Olympics, many of Athen's hotels renovated, expanded and modernized themselves to accommodate the influx of visitors into the city. These changes enhanced Athen's hotel scene, making it a city that now more than ever, satisfies the needs and wants of even the most demanding of travellers.
Staying in the city's centre grants travellers easy access to many of Athen's fascinating archaeological sites including the Acropolis and Parthenon. Many 5stars and affordable new boutique hotels can be found in Plaka as well as in the area around Omonia Square and in Kolonaki at Lycabettus Hill. On Sygrou Avenue, a street and area a little outside of the core city centre is where the majority of the large-chain hotels can be found.
For more than just business travellers, the airport area is a convenient place to stay. The hotels around the Athens International Airport range from basic budget friendly properties to high-end luxury 5star hotels. Beyond the myriad of hotels, the airport area has many dining and shopping opportunities.
In the greater Athens area, lush green spaces and quiet neighborhoods can be found. The suburbs of Kifissia and Kefalari provide travellers with comfortable and stylish accommodations in a serene setting. These areas are linked to the city's attractions, restaurants and entertainment through public transit.
Outside of the city, many resorts can be found nestled into the shores of the breathtaking blue sea. At the start of the Attica coastline travellers will find many 3star and 4star hotels. As you head towards Vouligmeni and Sounion these mid-range hotels evolve into sumptuous 5star resorts. The coastal region is known for its striking scenery, exotic restaurants, cafes, bars and spas with renowned Thalassotherapy therapy treatments. No matter where on the coast you stay, public transit will provide effortless access to the sights and sounds of Athens.
