The Claridge in Omonia Square is not the best hotel in the world. But if you want a really cheap stay in the middle of Athens it's not that bad. It's just a couple of steps from the escalators to the Metro which is very handy for going to Pireaus. It's an easy walk to Montasteraki and Plaka, and up to Syntagma. The Omonia area has been cleaned up a bit from last year and I didn't feel in any danger whatsoever. I have always found the two male managers extremely accommodating and the woman who does the cleaning and breakfast is very friendly and nice. Yes the rooms are old and you sometimes get sheets with burn holes and towels with even bigger holes, but they are clean from the laundry. For 23 euros a night for a single and breakfast and handy position, give it a go. Save your money for the islands. If more and more tourists would come back to Omonia the area would be better I think.
