Reviewed 10 October 2013

Excellent location - a 5 minute stroll to Monastiraki - the main gathering place to watch people...and go window shopping in the Plaka. All staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and gave excellent advice on what to see and when and where to eat dinner. Breakfast had lots of variety and open at good hours. Close to travel agents, stores and food. An excellent choice for budget minded tourists.

This hotel is in an excellent location - close to the Monastiraki & Omnia metro stations & close to the pedestrian shopping streets. The staff were really friendly & helpful - they knew where all the museums were and their opening times and were able to offer advice on ferries, buses, trains & metros.
The breakfast was really great - cereal, yoghurt, fruit, toast, coffee, tea, cake, ham & cheese - and when we left too early to have breakfast, they made up a packed breakfast for us.
The room was very spacious and clean and WiFi worked perfectly. Only downside was that the bathroom was a little on the small side.

This is my second trip to Athens, and after the first (back in 2009) being a bit marred by a bad hotel in a bad area, I wanted to be careful in choosing a a decent place in a decent location this time. Economy hotel was a great and yet still affordable choice. I have learnt that Athens in general, especially for a female, can be a little daunting and seem a little grotty and seedy. I am lucky enough to be traveling with my Partner this time, and it does seem a male presence helps, but my advice is just use your common sense, and also it just looks alot worse than it is! The Economy Hotel is basic, but comfortable. Clean, comfy beds, Air conditioning (still needed in September) a fridge and a basic bathroom. (shower pressure not the best - but still warm). Rooms serviced daily. Staff are very very polite, professional, welcoming, and a wealth of knowledge. We were given a map on arrival and a detailed description of our location and all the worthwhile sights. It is around 8min walk to Monastiraki metro, and also closeby to Omonia station & Omonia Square around the same walk, so both lines are accessible. Acropolis is walking distance, as is the flea market & shopping. Wifi is free & worked totally fine in our 6th floor room. Breakfast was great, cereal, toast, coffee, juice, cakes & pastry and served until 10. Overall I am very pleased with our choice, and would advise you take the time and find something nice, and recommended by other travelers like Economy Hotel to enjoy your stay in Athens.

Booked this hotel after staying in an awful hostel that was more expensive than Economy Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised, the staff were very welcoming and helpful, the rooms spacious, clean and comfortable (with a shower that didnt flood the bathroom!), good a/c and a good continental breakfast. Excellent location, everything within walking distance. Highly recommend this hotel for budget travellers

The hotel is about 10 mins walking distance from Monastraki station which makes every part of the city easily accessible. It's also close to the Omonia station so you have quick access to both metro lines. It was easy and safe to walk to the hotel at night.
The staff welcomes you with a big smile. Staff was really friendly and helpful with every question we had. At check in we were informed about many of the touristic attractions which made our trip more planned.
They even preared breakfast packs for us for the day we needed to leave early! So I can tell it's great value for money.

Very good location to everything. Walking distance to Monistiraki square, flea market, shopping area and Acropolis. The hotel is very clean Dan the rooms are cleaned every day. The breakfast is good for a two star hotel. The staff are very welcoming and helpful.

I stayed there for one night, on my way to the airport in Athens. The hotel staff was very kind and helpfull. The room was clean, having everything you need for short term period, and the breakfast was very good. It's excellent for a city hotel. The location is great if you want to visit all important sightseeings in Athens, e.g. Psiri, Monastiraki, Plaka and the shoping center.
