Stayed for 1 night and we are so glad that was all. It was disgusting - wasn't cleaned properly - shower was mouldy - Beds were terrible - Wifi was terrible - Room/hotel was rundown, old and left to rot Overall, I'd never stay again. Plenty of better hotels for similar price. Go anywhere else.

We agreed; the clerk seemed very friendly telling us where to eat, etc; He charged us 50 euros. We thought that was a...

It was one of the worst experiences that we have ever experience in a hotel while traveling abroad. The main problems: 1) Starting from the second day of our staying till the last day (Sunday-Friday) we didn’t have hot water in the shower. Although we spoke with every one over there each and every time we were told that “everyone...

Staying in Psirri / Gazi

Neighbourhood Profile
Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighbourhoods Psirri and Gazi provide some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an interesting blend of original small businesses with the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of Keramikos, then cross busy Pireos Street to find yourself in Gazi. With the huge Technopolis performance and art complex converted from old gasworks at its heart, you really have to come at night to appreciate this maze of bars at its best, although a daytime stroll will allow you to admire the excellent street art.
