Dioskouros Hostel, Athens

Address 6 Pittakou Str. (Plaka)

Simple and unadorned, Dioskouros's 17 rooms set up shop in a rambling building that feels more like a retrofitted mansion than a purpose-built hotel.

Carolina Hotel, Athens

Address 55,Kolokotroni Street (Plaka)

We appreciated the Carolina's old-fashioned cage elevator, reminiscent of the late 19th century. And loved the roof terrace, which made us feel like we were on top of the world.

Hotel Attalos is a good value for budget travelers. A relaxed throwback to the 1970s, it's less shiny than it is dependable.

Epidavros, Athens

Address 14, Koumoundourou str (Omonia)

If you're the kind of budget traveler for whom "budget" is a priority and not merely a preference, then the Hotel Epidavros, despite its uninspiring location and uninspired décor, is worth considering.
