Two-star Dryades has the same management (and reception area) as one-star Hotel Orion, which we also recommend. Among our listings, these two hotels are the furthest afield from central Athens, perched as they are at the top of Exarchia. Nonetheless, for their rates and vibe, they are logical EuroCheapo picks.

Dryades is the big brother to Orion. While Orion takes a younger crowd, Dryades tends to house families and thirty-somethings.

We loved the 1960s office-type wood paneling we saw in one of Dryades' 15 rooms. Ditto to those fuzzy pink and orange blankets, which also reminded us of the mid-1960s. Rooms also feature nifty retro wardrobes. Floors are tiled. These appealing touches appear to be the result of piecemeal aesthetic additions as opposed to any sort of stylistic renovation. Rooms are air-conditioned and some have balconies with stellar views.

The walk up the hill to Dryades will be somewhat strenuous for all but the insane triathletes among us.

A communal kitchen is available.

About the Dryades Hotel neighborhood

The lively Platia Exarchia forms the nucleus of Exarchia (also known as Moussio), which sits to the northeast of Omonia Square. This former hub of radical student culture punctuates Athens' usual languid café culture with left-wing graffiti, underground music shops and a few dazed, wandering souls. The National Archaeological Museum and Athens Polytechnic are located here.
