After living in hotels, guesthouses, hostels, campsites and apartments for the last 200+ days, the reception at Economy is by far the best. Upon check-in we were given a detailed description of how to get to the main sites in Athens along with the prices and where passes could be used and for how long. Plus on our way out there was also someone at reception available for help. The location is also another big plus, near the Psiri neighborhood which has many great restaurants and bars and just a few blocks from two different metro lines in either direction. The room had enough space and storage for two and the balcony was a nice place to enjoy a glass of wine from the shop just two doors down or from the refrigerated case in the lobby. Sure the room was outdated, but it was very clean and to me that is more impressive as you really have to maintain older rooms. Plus I don’t visit cities to spend time in my room, I want something clean, comfortable and near public transportation/in an area that is within walking distance of sites so I can explore they city with ease. And this hotel has it all. But if you wanted a fancy looking room and to spend more money on a hotel instead of all the great food and sites, then you probably aren’t even really interested in staying here.
