Best areas to stay / places in Athens on a budget?

Hey there,

Going to Athens for a couple of days beginning of July and looking to stay somewhere central on a budget in a lively or close to a lively neighborhood. Any recommendations? would love to meet the locals and immerse myself in the culture too.

Hello Mike,

One good location for you to stay would be Plaka. There is Hotel Airotel Parthenon that is a really nice hotel without being too expensive. Also Hera Hotel and Electra Hotel Athens are good choices. Those hotels are affordable and location is ideal for sightseeing and immerge your self in the culture!

Hey, I've been to Athens last year and i'm going again this year, in both cases i used airbnb to stay with locals for very affordable prices or you can always use couchsurfing. As per where to stay, to be honest, it's all close to the central, you can get by using the metro or buses, which are very cheap and I always encourage to walk around the city and explore it's streets. Sometimes getting lost is the best way to have an adventure :)

We were just there Mike, and really liked the Plaka Hotel Athens. The only downside is the very small and slow 1 elevator.

The rooftop bar is great with a good view of the Plaka hotel. Parthenon/Acropolis of Athens
