I am scheduled to be in Athens June 15-17. I was going to stay at the King George right near the Square/Parliament, but my travel agent has suggested moving completely out of the city because the next election is scheduled for June 17th and she is concerned about protests/safety. I think this is being way over cautious. From what I have read there is no need for concern.
I have decided to move from the King George just so I am not right in the Square if there are demonstrations, but dont feel the need to leave the city center completely. Can someone recommend a comparabale hotel to stay in? We want to be near the sites, as we are only there one full day and want to take advantage of the sites, go to dinner in Athens, etc. I am just not that familiar with the best area to stay in.
