The Marina Hotel has nice rooms, a good breakfast, and a friendly and helpful staff. It is within a 15-20 minute walk from Monastiraki Square and all the main attractions which Athens has to offer. One could get there even more quickly if they preferred to take the metro from Omonia Station, which is less than 500 meters away.
The hotel is an incredible value, and can be a pleasant experience if you can swallow the fact that it is located in a less-than-savory neighborhood. We were always together, and thus never really felt unsafe, but neither of us would have been comfortable walking alone, particularly after dark up until the sun comes up. I don't know if the area just looks worse than it is, but I don't know that I would be interested in finding out.
So, a great place to stay if you want to save money and are not traveling alone. If you're alone, or have money to spend, I would splash up to a nicer area of the city.More
