Cheap hotels in Omonia, Athens
A gritty transit and commercial hub, Omonia Square is not Athens at its most quaint and ancient. In architectural terms, it is is other than charming. But there are plenty of quirky, even inspiring, aspects of the area around Omonia Square. For one, oodles of ethnic restaurants and immigrant retail shops give the area a bit of an international vibe.
There's also the mindblowing Central Market, featuring stall upon stall of interesting goods. While Omonia is convenient for cheap sleeps and international fare, keep in mind the area can get a bit sketchy at night.
