Located on a short pedestrian street right next to Omonia Square, the two-star Alma offers uninspired though clean rooms.
As for decor, Alpine-reminiscent detailing on the furniture seems better suited for a discount Swiss lodge than an Athenian one. Adhesive-tiled floors are a bit worse for wear. Peach comforters look serviceable, even if they remind us of an unfortunate early 1990s wine cooler experience. However, all rooms are equipped with air conditioning, cable TV, and free Wi-Fi.
Alma's bathrooms set showers apart with raised barriers and a shower curtain. Most Athens budget hotel bathrooms, rather unfortunately, maintain no distinction between the shower space and the rest of the bathroom.
Is Alma a good deal? The answer to this question depends on your priorities. The hotel will not charm you aesthetically, though its rates are extremely good. The immediate neighborhood is not thrilling, though pleasant corners of the Omonia Square area and, further afield, more charming 'hoods are not far away.
Breakfast is included in the rate.

About the Alma neighborhood
A gritty transit and commercial hub, Omonia Square is not Athens at its most quaint and ancient, but oodles of ethnic restaurants and immigrant retail shops give the area a bit of an international vibe and the Central Market features a dizzying range of goods. While Omonia is convenient for cheap sleeps and international fare, keep in mind the area can get a bit sketchy at night.
